    Student Housing Development Begins to Slow Down

    Student housing properties are filling quicker than ever, despite increasing competition from new development. ... Student housing developers are planning to open projects containing thousands of new beds this fall, but those new beds are renting quickly in most markets, with only a few exceptions. The shortage of good sites to build on and the difficultly of finding construction financing have prevented developers from getting too far ahead of the need for new student housing beds.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Reis (New York, NY) in October 2016.


    Applied online. Phone screening by HR then an in-person meeting with the hiring manager plus three others managers within his dept. Interview with the hiring manager went very well. He actually worked with my boss at my former company. Obviously this helped relax the interview process. The three others I met with asked questions which were related to their respective roles (website, SEO and general marketing). Two of the three were great, the third guy was so cold and stoic, like he was trying to intimidate or psyche me out. I've met dozens of people like this before, both in interviews and in meetings - they're a joke. The interview process last close to 2 hours. I followed up in 5 days, was told to touch base at the end of the week. I did so, they never replied. I sent a total of three follow-up emails, none of which received a reply. I knew it was over, but gave it one last try asking that they get back to me, one way or the other, so I can either keep or remove it from my prospect list. 5 hours later I received a boilerplate "thanks, but no thanks" email from HR. I responded by telling her I was chuckling as I read her response.
