    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Essex Property Trust.

    Interview

    No more on-line questionnaire. On site interview with Management is pleasant. I interviewed with a manager and two regional managers at the time. Sometimes you interview with a assistant then a manager. Dress nice and smile. The questions are standard and nothing complicated, customer service is the most important skill you can come with. I got ask lots of questions as well that made me feel comfortable with applying for this company. They will call the reference afterword's and are pretty quick in contacting you after that. I did not do role playing, although I am not sure if they do that now.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Essex Property Trust (San Mateo, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had two in person interviews with a community manager. Easy interview, none of your standard questions like " Why should we hire you?" or "When was a time you had to handle a difficult client?" or anything along those lines. Interview was more like a conversation where the community manager was trying to feel you out and get to know you a little.
