Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle (Raleigh, NC) in February 2013.

Interview

The first interview was with the head of HR. That interview was fine, average. After that things went downhill. The second interview was with 2 brokers, one who left after 5 minutes because something came up. They were not prepared and asked inappropriate questions (i.e. are your married, have kids). I didn't mind as they seemed to be making small talk. The third interview consisted of 6 people coming and going in the conference room, again asking inappropriate questions. None of them were prepared with ANYTHING, except one and even he was awkward. Obviously these people have never interviewed anyone before. I am slightly bitter because what happened next was even more unprofessional than anything else. I was told they picked another candidate, fine, whatever. The job has since been reposted. All they had to do was tell me they didn't think I was right for the position, not lie to me. I guess I am better off. Seemed like a great place to work, guess just not for me.

    Interview

    The standard interview consists of one or more managers who meet with you to get answers for various scenarios that they present. They are looking to see what type of problem solving and critical thinker you are. They go back and discuss what they each thought about not only your resume and experience, but your answers to the responses. This is a required element of the interviews for this company.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Online application, 1st interview with project mgr, 2nd interview with partners of the firm. Didn't get the job because of cultural fit. They have a chill and informal environment where as I'm more of the "get it done" person who prefer not sharing about my personal life when I'm at work. I think the 3 partners in Vancouver, BC are new at hiring because they asked me very inappropriate, borderline discriminatory interview questions. They also don't know how to interview to get the best answer from the candidate. Ie. they use sports to gauge whether the person has good team playing abilities. I said I play tennis and they commented it's not a team sport when one can actually play doubles. Regardless, my resume shows my background was in customer service working with hybrid teams across different departments, meaning I obviously can work in teams but it's really a culture fit for them since they all are hockey fans and I'm not a sports fanatic.
