    Records Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Interviewed over the phone then met in person. Rather comfortable interview, very quick and to the point and was made an offer shortly thereafter. I was made and offer after the initial face to face meeting and I accepted the job offer. Salary was not what I wanted but I needed to change jobs quickly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Tishman Speyer (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview and in person interview in Boston office. No technical questions. Phone interviewer did not know what to ask and did not seem to know anything about real estate, e.g. Did not know Jones Lang Lasalle. In person interviewer did not seem to like the role he was in and suggested I steer away from asset management, which is what the analyst position was for--very confusing.

    LDP Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at Tishman Speyer (New York, NY).

    Interview

    it is weird that they still have outdated information from 2010 on their website within career section. No clear directions after application. Very negative experience without any communication or any feedback. If they are the company that people are talking about...I would expect them to be good at getting back and giving feedback and updating appropriate information on their website. If you are not hiring stop putting fake information on your website. I have tried several times for the past 2 years. No response. This time I go through an internal employee referral and that as well takes them so long. Very negative experience. TS is not on top of their game. No wonder employees have given it poor rating as a lousy and arrogant place to work at. Seems like they dont care.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Tishman Speyer in May 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed by a very unprofessionally dressed looking woman - told I was over-qualified. Passed over for position, then contacted later for a lesser position... they take advantage of people. The interviews are not that serious.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Tishman Speyer (New York, NY) in April 2011.

    Online application thru website. Company came back to me in due moment. Interviews with senior/managing directors in the areas where I could potentially work.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions from each person depending on their specialty. Financial concepts, why you want to work in this field. Very interested in previous background, companies and college. They want people who fit with their "culture" if there is one. They seemed more interested in that than in anything else.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation... TS attitude is "you take or you leave it".

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Tishman Speyer (Boston, MA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Responded to ad with a phone call as requested, call returned within 4 days. Brief verbal interview, was called in for personal interview 2 days later. Hiring manager did not have much time, was a busy day. Had about 25 minutes with him and his manager. Was turned over to a lead engineer, shown the working area and further description of the job. Routine questions asked and answered. Left with a neutral feeling. Did not get a call back / or any communication at all. Somewhat disappointed, as the employer seemed like a class act.

    • Was more interested with last 2 yrs of employment record.   1 Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Tishman Speyer in June 2010.

    Interview

    Phone call from internal recruiter. Recruiter phone screen, 1 day on site with hiring manager and peers. All went pretty quick, 3 weeks total. Very nice NYC offices @ Rock Center. Culture very hard to determine on visit but seemed very conservative. Formal dress required. Stark white offices. Very quiet hallways which translates accurately into what working there is like.
