    Corporate Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Connor Group (Dayton, OH) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Like everyone else, I received a call from a recruiter and that went well, she then set up a time for me to do another phone screen which was more like a personality test. That also went well. I was then set up for an in person interview with the VP of Talent Acquisition. While I wouldn't say it that was a bad experience, it was a very rushed feeling and due to being rushed I don't think I was at my best. They are known for their very fast paced environment so maybe that was all planned but I think for an interview to be successful and also for the candidate to truly be able to show their true self, it shouldn't feel like such a rushed process. I truly don't harbor any negativity for it, I just wish I wouldn't have felt so rushed. I truly think I may have gone further in the process. One never knows!
    I'm sure they will find someone to fill the position as it's a highly sought after position in my field here in Dayton but they missed out on one heck of a candiate and I have the recommendations to back that statement up!
    I should note a few things that I thought were truly unique in an interview and that I really liked; 1. The first question I was asked was more personal in nature and that really impressed me. 2. I did get the impression that although they expect a lot out of their associates, they give a lot back in return, which is rare.

    I only rated the overall experience negative due to the actual in person interview. If there were somewhat negative, or somewhat positive, I would have gone with one of those because it truly wasn't all negative.

    Apartment Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Connor Group in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied for the position. Was called within a week by a young woman who was in charge of hiring. I had been left a message from her and then returned the call that day. The next day I was at dinner at a noisy restaurant and took a phone call from her returning my call. She asked if it was a good time to talk and I told her no, way too noisy and I was at dinner. I asked her If we could set up a better time tomorrow. She said no she was off but Saturday was good for her. She set up a time, I accepted it and repeated the information back to her. On Saturday she never called, I then called her voicemail and left a message thinking I had messed something up. Never got a call, then a few days passed and I called them back and asked to speak with her. Someone else took a message and said she was not in and I could leave a voicemail. Once again I did. Needless to say I figured it was not meant to be because who in their right mind would go work for a company where they call you to talk to you, set up an appointment and then stand you up. If you were not worthy of their time why did they call in the first place?

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Connor Group.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter the day after submitting my resume. She left me a message, and even though I called her back and left my own message, it was 4 days before she contacted me again. I had a short phone interview, and then she set me up for an interview the next day. Upon driving to the property for the interview, I was informed that it was a video conference interview. The HR person asked many of the same questions from the phone interview. I was told that they have a 24 hour call back policy. When I didn't hear anything after 48 hours I called the original phone interviewer. It wasn't until 2 weeks later that I received an email from her stating they were going with someone else.

    Administrative Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miamisburg, OH

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Connor Group (Miamisburg, OH) in March 2014.

    Interview

    After waiting in the lobby for over twenty minutes, I was finally taken to an office to be interviewed by the person for whom I'd be assisting. This interview seemed to go pretty well, and then I had to meet with the CEO. One would think that the CEO would have better things to do than to have an interview with an Admin for someone else, but it's whatever. Strange that there is no human resource department. Perhaps there is a reason for that? Sounds like a strategic move to me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Connor Group.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter through LinkedIn and had a brief phone conversation about the overall job description of the job and also we discussed my work history and my skill set. The recruiter explained the of hours and job responsibilities. Based on our conversation I was then scheduled for another phone interview with another member from the company and it took roughly about 35 minutes. Not your traditional interview more short answers and some examples were required. Things went well and I am currently waiting to be scheduled for an in person interview.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at The Connor Group (Dayton, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process was long, but it really gave me a good feel for the people I would be working with and the company I would be working for. I liked knowing that it was a hard interview process to get through because it meant everyone I was working with went through that as well and they were all going to be hard workers and invested in the company. Overall, I had a wonderful experience and by the end of it I was very invested in the company and ready for an offer!

    Interview

    Although the interview process is intense it all happens very quickly. The interview process is generally a four to five step process that involves spending a day shadowing a tenured person in the company.
