    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Archstone (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Very thorough. Expect to meet with community manager(s) and even regional managers prior to being hired, as well as doing an extensive background and pre-employment screening, including a drug test.
