    Interview

    The interview process started out well enough, with the interviewer telling me that he would be back to me within four days to let me know if I was still being considered, or if they passed on me. Two weeks and several emails from me later, I've heard nothing. They talk a good game, but they practice the typical corporate B.S. I wonder if this type of avoidance is also done with their tenants. This type of behavior tends to be consistent across stakeholder groups.

    Interview Questions

    Community Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AvalonBay Communities (San Francisco, CA (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I went to the Mission Bay location on Hiring Day. Talked to the general manager - ab. 15 minutes - who was very friendly and extremely helpful. Liked my resume and promised me to share it with the other locations in SF and she did. Got a call 6 days later to go in to another location for an interview the next day.

     The interview went well, but the manager had concerns because I have too much experience for an entry level role but zero industry-specific experience. He was also friendly, helpful and professional. Answered every question I asked - and I had a lot - so it lasted about an hour. He had 4-5 other candidates and promised that he would call the one he chooses the end of next week. I sent a thank you note / follow-up email a couple hour later, didn't get an answer. Also It wasn't me who got the call.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AvalonBay Communities.

    Interview

    I interviewed at one location back in 2017. I didn't hear anything post interview but was contacted in early 2018 from another manager. I went in to meet with two of my bosses and had a pleasant and exciting experience. I was asked typical questions and really loved the feedback they were able to give me regarding my questions. Both were so nice and informative and I was happy to join a team where both my community manager and location manager were women. Went well, got a tour after, was very pleased with the experience.
