I worked at The LaSalle Network full-time (more than an year)Pros
Working at LaSalle gave me a work ethic like no other place could, you put in long days, but you are able to learn so much! Management is super hands on, on a regular day you will see the CEO stroll through the office, and he will give you advice as you are working.
The CEO is great, management is great, but it's the people that really keep the company moving. People who are dedicated to putting in 12+ hour days, because they love what they do! As many people have read, if you are looking for 9-5 job, this isn't for you; however, if you are a recent graduate looking to gain some of the best hands on experience you can, this IS the place for you! I learned more from this company in a year, then I did in my 4 years of college.Cons
Long hours can be quite exhausting and mentally draining.
Suburban offices can feel left out a lot of the time.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep doing what you're doing, you've won countless awards and you are repeatedly recognized for the great things the company has accomplished!RecommendsApproves of CEO

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at The LaSalle Network.Interview Details
I tried to apply to a position through the LaSalle Network, but the application was misleading so I actually applied to the opening by submitting only my name and contact info. I wrote LaSalle an angry email, they replied within 47 hours, and I was eventually able to apply.
A week later someone from LaSalle called me for a general interview in their Oak Brook office. On the phone we went over my resume with basic questions--how long did you work there, reason for leaving, etc.
The in-person interview didn't go into much further depth. Two representatives asked standard questions about my experience, proficiencies, goals, etc.
The first woman was at least polite, engaging, and enthusiastic. The second barely looked at me, asked maybe two generic questions, and was gone in 8 minutes. She did mention that there's a downtown Chicago LaSalle Network office that I could have gone to instead, which would have been far more convenient for me.
I left feeling uncertain but optimistic based on their assurances they'd be in touch, my prospects looked good, etc.
The offices were professional-looking. The staff was polite and helpful.
Five months later I got an email telling me about an opening as a telemarketer. I'd heard nothing from them in all that time, and even that one email was written so generically that I'm not sure it's even related to my interview there. I moved it to my spam folder.Interview Questions
