Applications Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Yardi Systems (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2017.

Interview

Started off by applying on front end of website, got a call from HR a few days later. He screened me and then set up a phone interview with the manager in Salt Lake City. I interviewed in-person the following week. I talked with the team and took an hour long test to assess knowledge related to the job. Managers stressed that the test was to assess training needs rather than deciding a hiring decision.

The managers were up front that this position has no career path and the most they could offer long-term were lateral moves. After I expressed concern, they said their only hesitation with my candidacy was that I would ultimately get bored. It was a valid point-- they defined the role in customer service terms, it as highly service-oriented and client-facing over phone and email. I desire a more technical role, and this obviously wasn't that.

I was a great candidate and had fantastic rapport with the interviewers, so I believe that my ultimate lack of an offer stemmed from my honesty about my concerns about the position's potential. Unfortunately, Yardi didn't want to have this difficult conversation and simply never got back to me or answered my follow up.

Advice to Yardi hiring managers: let applicants know when you decide they aren't a good fit. It is a rude reality that many employers, Yardi included, simply ghost candidates after an interview. If someone takes the time to speak and test with you, they deserve an up front yes/no. I followed up 2 weeks after my interview, and have still heard nothing 5 weeks later. I accepted an offer at another company, but I wouldn't apply to Yardi again after this experience.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yardi Systems (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Great over the phone interview and in person, people really made you feel comfortable. There was an assessment test that was interesting, and it did not determine if i would get the job or not, they just wanted to see how knowledgeable i was and how well I could think outside the box.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yardi Systems (San Diego, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    You get a chance to meet the director as well as all the managers (one of which will end up being yours). If it is just one person interviewing they have all these people in one room along with you. If there is a group, each manager along with the director will be in an office where you will get a chance to 1 on 1 with each of them individual and you will be a in rotation with the other candidates. Solo or group, you will have a written interview in addition to the in-person interview. The written interview will take you roughly 30 minutes to complete but you are given 1 hour. I still recall all the questions.

    Solo interview takes no longer than 2 hours. The group interview will take you the whole day where lunch is usually provided.

    Negotiation

    They called me at the end of the week - it was an HR rep. They tell you what you were offered. I wasn't sure if I could counter since it was an HR rep who was basically passing the word along. It was the not the actual guy/gal who you interviewed with that gave you the number even though he/she is the person who come up with the offer. Due to not know if I could counter or not I simply took it.
