    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Equity Residential (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for the San Francisco office. The recruiter was there to basically just make sure I was qualified and make sure there weren't any red flags. The recruiter then set me up with a regional manager who interviewed me as well. The interview was just to get a sense for each and see if it would be a good fit, personality-wise.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equity Residential (New York, NY).

    The interview process was basically a cattle call.

    Regional Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Augusta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Equity Residential (Augusta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone interview with Human Resources at the Corporate office in Chicago. I was told they would make selections for an in-person interview in about two weeks. Today is two weeks and I haven't heard back from them yet. The person I interviewed with contacted me by email and set up a time for a phone interview the next week. She called me promptly at the interview time.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer was very professional and put me at ease right away. She had obviously read my resume and asked me specific questions about my accounting experience, what I thought were my strengths and weaknesses, and about gaps in my work experience. The interviewer was well prepared and asked the usual job interview questions. I think we talked for about 20 minutes - I didn't feel rushed and felt like she was able to learn enough about me to determine if I would be a good fit for this company/this position. I hope to have the opportunity to go for an in-person interview.   Answer Question
