    I worked at Irvine Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and an incredible experience. People are the best of the best. If you can cut it Irvine Company, you can cut it any where!

    Cons

    Old fashioned. Sometimes struggles to understand and shed light on the NEW workforce and the times. Although forward thinking, Irvine is strides behind other companies in their standard agenda.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with work-life-balance and understand different personalities bring flavor and life to the job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Irvine Company (Playa Vista, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called to do a phone interview with their HR Recruiter. Then I was invited to their open interviews where I interviewed with one of the property managers. Then I was interviewed by the general manager, and finally by the Senior Director of Marketing. All of these were one-on-one and the entire process took about 4 hours on that one day. I was given the job offer immediately the next day. Most of the questions were situational.
