    Unprofessional and Disappointing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at GGP (Atlanta, GA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I was interested to interview with GGP since they are one of the largest shopping center developers in America. I had over 10 different interviews with GGP for a Business Development position. Five of the ten interviews were conducted via phone and five were in person since GGP paid for me to fly to their Regional Baltimore Office. My experience with GGP's support staff (HR and admin) was very disappointing and out of all the companies I have been interviewing with, I found these employees to be the most unprofessional.

    The admin for the department I was interviewing with proceeded to speak very rudely to me via phone when I notified her that I rented a car when I arrived in Baltimore. GGP HR clearly stated they would not arrange ground transportation for me (I actually thought I heard the HR woman slightly laugh when I asked this) and this was up to me, but reimbursable. No schedule was sent to me in advance and the admin wanted me to take a cab which would have been $120 round trip. I was able to rent a car for $15/day instead and decided this was the best & cheapest route. When I called to give the admin a courtesy notice that I was enroute, she berated me about being on schedule. I kindly reminded her that no schedule was sent and in return there was silence.

    Once I finally made it to their Regional office I had five interviews back to back. None of the people I met with had read my resume in advance and two of the five interviewers corrected me about their titles. After hearing their responses to my questions, I quickly realized this company had many, many chiefs and not enough indians. I was actually quite surprised their egos were so inflated given the state of the economy. When I asked the Manager for the position what his biggest challenge was, he replied: "Dealing with internal employees to have to fight to get work done." After hearing that response (which was interview two of five) I knew immediately this was not the right company. Layers of red tape is not something a sales professional wants to deal with, especially if its coming from internal colleagues.

    After I arrived home I followed up with HR in Chicago and have yet to receive a return call. I also proceeded to get an email from the rude admin who picked apart my candidate expense report stating mileage to the airport nor the 6am cup of coffee I purchased would be reimbursed. Thanks sweetheart.

    Overall I found this company to be unprofessional in the eyes of a candidate. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone I know seeking a job unless they were completely desperate and wanted to shoot themselves in the foot.

    Associate Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at GGP (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online: March 5
    Phone interview: March 13
    In-person interview: March 14

    The phone interview went nicely. The lady at HR was very nice and polite even though I did jump the gun sometimes and accidentally interrupted. One of the questions she asked was if I was planning to get my Masters and she did note that not all the Directors have CPAs but many have their Masters.

    After the in-person interview they said if I don't hear back for a few weeks, that they did not forget about me and they are still interviewing more people. I interviewed with four Property Accountants, 2 at a time, took about 1 hour. They were all very nice and at times, it was quiet, and I could feel a little awkwardness but not too much.

    I called for a follow-up on April 10 after not hearing anything and HR said another recruiter would be contacting me.
    Offer made on April 11.
    Start date May 1.

    I think the interview is naturally a long process because they have to consider your background and education before making an offer. When I asked how much the pay was, it was a range, and not just a number.

    • Why do you want to go into real estate? I was not expecting this question.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I really wanted this job and was overexcited and accepted right away. They offered me more than I expected and also more than my job (which I am overpaid in). She basically said, "After talking with the managers, we are willing to offer you this much, $xx,xxx, is this something you are okay with?"

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GGP (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with following onsite interviews with management. The onsite interviews were with management and one manager told me he did not know why he was asked to this interview. He asked only one question and was not part of my job function. After the interview, I had not heard of any follow-up and I get an invite for a third onsite interview and they cancelled it on the same day to reschedule. The day of the interview they then called me that the position was filled. Worst interview experience ever.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GGP (Columbia, MO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Had a really good hour long interview that included taking a tour of all the areas. Was also told that I was a great fit for their team and was scheduled to interview with the Mall Manager. That interview went well also. Long story short...I didn't get the job for some unknown reason...I'm thinking my AGE (51 1/2) is having a lot to do with it! I've been having the same results with every place I apply to.
