    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Camden Property Trust (Irvine, CA) in December 2017.


    I applied online and heard back a couple weeks later. The HR Dept. reached out to me and invited me to open interviews. Before I went to the interview the HR lady called me and we went over the position, pay and asked me questions about myself. I appreciated that she spent the time to make sure I was a good fit for the position and what it consisted of before sending me to the open interviews. When I came into the Regional Office for open interviews I was greeted by some very nice and friendly people from Camden. I ended up interviewing with 3 different people in the same day (total interview time was almost 2 hours). I interviewed with 2 community managers and the district manager. Loved my whole interview experience and really connected well with the ladies who interviewed me. They valued my experience and made me feel very comfortable.
