I applied online – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle (San Francisco, CA).
The ad said that the above position would be in Walnut Creek/Sacramento, I assumed that maybe there were two positions. I live in SF and was going to ask about the Walnut Creek position.
The first interview was a phone interview. The HR employee who was to interview me, rescheduled 3 times. Twice at the last minute. When this person did finally maintain the appointment, the call was 20 minutes late (for a 30 minute interview) with no explanation.
The interview began with the usual questions, and about 10 mins in, the interviewer asked me if I was willing to travel to Sacramento a few days a week. I said no, sorry, Walnut Creek was the furthest I was willing to travel, at which the interviewer said that he/she "thought so".
I was frustrated that this wasn't a question posed in, perhaps, the very first email, rather than wasting both of our time.
The interviewer seemed like a nice enough person, but it was a very frustrating experience.

interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle in November 2014.
I applied online in early November 2014. Within a couple of days I received a call from a recruiter who went through the basic questions of my resume, why did you leave your last company, what type of salary are you looking for etc. When the initial telephone interview was complete, she schedule a time frame to which HR would contact me to go through a few more details about the position at hand. When I spoke to HR, we set up a date and time for an onsite interview with a group of brokers, managers, marketing and few other superiors. The 2 hour interview, I thought personally went well. Everything they needed in the next Broker Assistant position was everything that I possessed in my background. After the interview I went home and wrote out a variety of thank you emails addressing each individual that I interviewed with... 8 total. Each week that has passed I sent over an additional email to HR indicating how enthused I was with the opportunity to interview and potentially becoming their next Broker Assistant. It's been over a month now and I have not received any feedback whats so ever. It is very discouraging not knowing whether or not you made the cut. And I wish, companies would at least send out an email indicating their acceptance or not of a candidate.

Had my first phone interview, lasted only 20 minutes and would've been shorter if I didn't start asking questions. Interviewer seemed in a rush like she wanted to end the call before it even began.
- Declined OfferNegative Experience
The process took a week – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle.
Interview was basically person telling me how I would handle his direct reports and not get paid for it. Asked me if a knew GAAP, so I asked if they handled a couple of basic GAAP principles and was told they don't need them. So i felt like asking why do I need to know GAAP then?
- do you know GAAP? Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Salary was way too low and I could tell I knew more than the person interviewing me or maybe the interview was playing dumb with me. Nonetheless pay was not even in the realm of my experience.
- Accepted Offer
Initially made contact through a family member that used to work at JLL. Interview was by phone and was quick and crisp. I got the job sooner than expected and went on to work in the Dublin, Ireland office for the summer. Great place to work and extremely invaluable experience.
- Hypothetical situations where they gage your decision making abilities. Answer Question
- No Offer
HR manager was very nice and professional. Interview went well. However, interview with hiring manager did not go well because I had more experience than the position required.

I applied online – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle.
I got a call several weeks after applying online asking if it was a good time for an interview. I was driving at the time, so we rescheduled for a Monday morning phone interview. The interviewer gave me a very specific time, and I was sure to clarify our time zone differences, but he still called me an hour late on Monday morning as I was walking into class. So we rescheduled for later that day. I'm not sure if this mix up (which I maintain not to be my error) contributed to me not getting an offer.
- I was asked mostly about my education and life experiences, but also basic questions about my knowledge of the commercial real estate market. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle (Saint Petersburg, FL) in September 2014.
Initial contact via email from hiring manager in response to online application for position posted on JLL career website. Second contact via brief telephone screening type discussion in which position and client were described in more detail to gauge my interest. Appointment made for more in-depth phone interview. Subsequent emails describing the real time evolution of the position led to an in person interview with hiring manager and team lead. During the interview process, it became apparent that more travel than initially anticipated would be required, making the position a poor fit for me.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle in September 2014.
Phone screen. Typical what is your greatest strength, what is your greatest weakness. Why are you looking for new employment. What is the minimum salary, seemed the salary was the determining factor.
