    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Lend Lease.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lend Lease.

    Interview

    Sidestepped HR by meeting with an exec who I heard was looking. Detailed reference check performed by this exec. Short interview that listed off expectations without waiting for detailed response on my part. Concern for longevity stressed - not using position to get experience and transfer to a different department. Entirely professional dress/atmosphere throughout the process; a conservative environment. There was never any doubt that the position was serious, even if the person filling it was not taken too seriously (meaning I was being offered an opportunity to jump when they said jump, not being offered an opportunity to be enriched personally as part of the team). This is strongly "us" and "them" culture between management and staff.

    Interview Questions

    • Was chided for listing a volunteer reference, this surprised me as my work there was exemplary and challenging. I did not expect to need so many business references.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was a take it of leave it offer put on the table. It doubled my current pay at ghd time.

    Project Accountant Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lend Lease (New York, NY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter working for Lend Lease looking for a paid intern. I was looking for a full time job at the time, but the recruiter was very nice and reasonable to my concerns, which made me decide to come in for an interview. I was impressed by their easygoing nature. I came in and talked with the NY Finance Manager who was one of the nicest and straightforward persons I've ever interviewed with. Then he had me sit down at the field office to interview with the people I'd be working with. There were no difficult questions.

    Interview Questions

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dunwoody, GA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lend Lease (Dunwoody, GA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was very smooth. I did an initial phone screen, and then had to drive in on 2 separate occasions for interviews with 4 managers and 1 executive. This is not unusual for a management role. Everyone was very friendly and respectful. Great overall feel for the office and people.

    Interview Questions

    • None were super difficult. A few key questions:
      1) Tell me about yourself (for the unprepared, this can be tricky. Answer succinctly and with business accomplishment focus... not your life story.)
      2) Why do you want this role?
      3) How would you improve morale on the team?
       
      Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    They did not offer any work-from-home schedule, even partial, for supervisors (which is understandable). I was interviewing with other companies that did. Also, I was looking for something a bit smaller where I can be involved in more innovation (vs. operations). This has more to do with me, not the company. Lend Lease seems like a great company and a good group of people. I was very torn. I would recommend Lend Lease to others.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lend Lease (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward, one superintendent, one project manager, and one senior level executive spending about 20-30 minutes with me each. They paid for me to fly into town and interview (this was back in the days when companies had recruiting budgets large enough to pay for plane tickets). I received an offer letter in a week.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question to me was the standard "where do you want to be in 5 years?".   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation...not really a negotiation for that entry level position.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. The interviewer and I chatted for about an hour. She was testing to see if she liked my personality, as my qualifications exceeded her expectations. She was anxious to have me - that much was clear. I don't think she was trying very hard to make it difficult.   Answer Question
