    Positive Experience

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equity Residential (United States)


    Quick and straightforward . The interview lasted about 20 minutes over the phone and the recruiter asked simple questions to gain knowledge about your previous experiences with leasing. She also told me a few things about the company and they they do a good job with training and there is a lot of room for internal growth.
