    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Transwestern (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Poorly executed with lack of interest from employer. Seemed to have already decided outcome before the interview was halfway over. Not very technical and judgey with regards to appearance and was not going to be useful in helping a career towards real estate

    Project Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anaheim, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Transwestern (Anaheim, CA).

    Interview

    The whole interview process was standard. Submitted my resume on my university's career site. Spoke with the hiring manager over the phone and scheduled an in person interview. Came in for the in person interview and talked about my experiences. The only different thing is that they gave me an accounting test to see my skill level. After that I got an offer through email which had a deadline. Took a couple days to think about it and they unprofessionally told me that they decided to close the position. Instead they split up the job duties to their current employees. Worst part was that I put in my two week notice before they gave me this horrible news. The level of transparency they showed was unprofessional. The process they had of making a decision and not informing me was unprofessional. Most importantly the way they gave me a verbal offer and backed out before the deadline they gave me shows how unprofessional this company is.

    Our apologies that this did not work out. Sometimes business needs require sudden shifts, and although extremely rare, it has happened that we've had to withdraw an offer. Best of luck in your job... More

    Interview was with Senior Manager who is no longer with the company. He took my skill set into consideration along with my experience. An out side of the box perspective in this manager is what got me the job. He took a chmave on me based on instinct and I made him proud for over 6 years.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Transwestern (Dallas, TX) in March 2016.

    To get the interview had to use a couple of personal connections. The actual interview was very laid back and simple due to the intern position (they don't expect you to know the ins and outs of commercial real estate).

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Transwestern (Milwaukee, WI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very informal and non-traditional. It went quickly and I genuinely walked away feeling interested. Upon my 6 week employment span, I was very disappointed by the lack of training, communication, and general disregard for providing tools to succeed. Mind reading was definitely expected once hired. Buyer beware!
