    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership.

    Interview

    Consisted of four interviews. The interview process took about a month, and I never received any notice that I would not be offered the job. I was overall very disappointed with their interview process. It took very long and no one communicated well. The first interview was a phone screen with HR at their corporate office.The second interview was at their office location and was with two of their property managers. They asked me basic questions about why I want to work there and asked me about my strengths and weaknesses. The third and fourth interviews consisted of meeting with another property manager and my potential co-workers. This interview felt very informal and there was not much to discuss. I felt like they repeated all questions that I had been previously asked in my other interviews.

    Interview

    The interview process was long, the questions were not difficult but a lot of people to meet. Ultimately came down to regional manager to make decision. Longer time frame than anticipated

    Application

    I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership in October 2016.

    Interview

    Talked with a representative and submitted brief online application at the campus recruiting fair. I received a call a few weeks later to schedule a 30 minute phone interview. The phone interview was pleasant and pretty relaxed. Most of the questions were standard fit questions(for instance, team work, communication skills, personal strengths and weaknesses, etc), in addition to some focused on why real estate investment was an area of interest.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn. Received an email the next day from the Recruiter asking for my availability for a phone interview. Interviewed 2 days later. Was told that she would be sending my resume and application to the hiring manager and they would be in touch. Got an email from the recruiter the next day discussing a different salary than was provided in my initial phone interview and wanted to check to see if I wanted to continue with the process due to the difference of the two salaries. I said yes, that I wanted to continue and haven't heard anything back. It has been 2 weeks now and I have not received a return phone call or email from the recruiter and have no information to contact the hiring manager.

    Accounts Payable Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Huge waste of time - Alot of incorrect information given. I applied online and then was called for a phone interview by the recruiter. After that, he set up an in person interview with himself and with the accounting manager for the following week. I met with him, and the manager didn't show up. The recruiter spent practically the entire time just trying to see if she was going to show up.

    I asked up front about the salary and was given a range of 45-55K. I was told that you could work from home 2-3 days per week, and could work out of any of their offices in Seattle. I was given incorrect vacation information, and benefit information in general.

    After that interview, I was told I just needed to meet with one other person, and it was him who made the call on hiring. I got called for the next interview and was surprised to meet with the original girl who did not show up to the first interview, not the man who I was told I would be meeting with.

    Then, I got called back for another interview with the supervisor. I was told I should set aside 30 minutes and was there for over an hour.

    The following day they called and said they would make me an offer and hoped to get it to me that afternoon. I never heard back. Then the following week, I received a phone call that again, they wanted to follow through with the offer and that they wanted to meet me that day. I met with them that afternoon, and did not receive an offer. I was brought into a room and left with yet another person who did ANOTHER full on interview. I was not told I was going to be interviewed again and was not prepared.

    The next day, I received the offer. The offer was 43K. 2K less than the original range. I brought this up and was told that "it can fluctuate a little bit". Yes, I am sure it does fluctuate, but within the range given I expected. I rejected it, and they came back with 44,500. 500 less than the original lowest end of the range.

    I also found out you can not work from home. You do need to go to a specific office. You have a set schedule (on salary). Vacation benefits were different than originally told to me. Health benefits were more. I was also asked several times if I was okay working overtime. I was under the impression that there were going to be alot of hours.

    Very disappointing process! I ended up turning the offer down and they did not come back with anything higher. A huge waste of EVERYONE's time!
