I had applied for a community manager position in early August. After completing a brief phone interview a couple of days after I applied, I was scheduled for a 2nd in person interview with the regional manager around the end of August. After driving an hour from my home to complete the interview at the corporate office, I was informed the position I had originally applied to, had already been filled. However, due to other available, or upcoming opportunities that the company had, I still interviewed. The same day I also had a 2nd interview with a community manager of a community I thought I would have been considered for as I had expressed interest in one of the other positions that was available. After my 2nd interview I had followed up with both the regional, and community manager to say thank you for the interview. I received a response back the same day from the regional who then informed that following week would like for me to do a 3rd interview with another community manager at a completely different community that had no open positions. The manager who interviewed me for the 3rd time was very direct, and came off as if I inconvenienced his day (felt like I had to rush through my interview). It was definitely a complete opposite interview to the ones I experienced over the phone, with the regional, and other manager I interviewed with which was more pleasant. After my 3rd interview I had sent a thank you follow up to the manager. About a week later I had emailed the regional back as a general follow up as I had not heard anything back regarding the status of my application or after the 3 interviews. I still have not received a follow up, however, my application in their system still states "under review".

The recruiting team is excellent. They follow the lead of the hiring manager. Let recruiting know what you want and they will find it, as quickly as you are ready to hire. Some positions take long as they are very serious about finding the right culture fit. But, up to the manager.

I was hired fairly quick, within a month or so. I interviewed and was called a day or two later to take a physical, once I was cleared I started immediately.
