I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle.
Had an initial interview with their HR lady, seemed to go quite well. A couple weeks later they called me in to meet with several of the brokers working there, I was a little more nervous and it wasn't as smooth an interview. Never heard back from them.

I applied online – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle (Boston, MA).
Initial interview is a 20 minute phone call. My qualifications were in line with the position and my experience provided great benefits to the role. The HR representative noted that my experience was in alignment with their needs and I had a pleasant personality that would fit in with their culture.
- What is the lowest salary you would consider. There is no side stepping this question, Explaining that salary is based on value of services employee provides, demonstrated capabilities, benefits JLL would provide, and many other factors is not sufficient. They require a salary amount or the interview is terminated. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Jones Lang LaSalle (Long Beach, CA) in May 2014.
Applied on JLL career web site. Received a call from a recruiter over one month later; played some phone tag - typical phone screen; several days later had phone interview with Acct. supervisor - said I was more qualified for a Manager role; would send offer 72 hours later.
- Questions were not at all difficult; phone screen was typical (what do you do now, what do you like about this role, etc.). Actual phone interview consisted of telling me my resume was not quality (even though it was professionally written and often complimented - often said my experiences were not related to the job, one role I've had meant I must be a good "bullshitter"), Account Supervisor (who I would be under) asked "how little can I pay you and over work you?" Not at all professional and a red flag. We went from Jr Facility Coordinator, to Sr. Facility Coordinator (didn't know there was a Jr. or Sr. role) and ultimately Facility Manager. Said the pay I was expecting was not possible in the filed and job - not true. Confusing because he ripped my resume and experiences apart but wanted to hire me as the department Manager; said he'd send an offer via recruiter in 72 hours. Did not hear a word from anyone; two weeks later I sent an email to the recruiter - she's on vacation for a while. Answer Question
