    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at The UIP Companies (Washington, DC) in Apr 2020


    Interview process is very laid back. Upper management wants to get to know you as a person, while asking what skills you can bring to the company and why you would be a good fit.

    Why did you decide to apply for this position?

We are proud to announce the selection of UIP’s apartment community, Boathouse, as the recipient of the 2021 Multifamily Executive Award for Adaptive Reuse. Originally constructed as a Howard Johnson’s hotel in the 1960s, UIP transformed the property and created a new rental community in the midst of Foggy Bottom, across from the Watergate, delivered in September 2020. Take a look at the exciting creativity that goes into such a project, a hallmark of all UIP’s ventures and who we are and how we work!

UIP partners with WhyHotel to operate units in the Kiley, it’s newest 315-unit building that just began leasing in Washington D.C.’s Capital Riverfront neighborhood. This unique partnership creates a win-win for all: it provides access to short-term rentals in the market and creates energy and interest when a building is in a lease-up mode. Find out more about this state-of-the-art concept in Multi-Housing News.
