    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JLL (Cleveland, OH) in June 2017.

    Interview

    There was no phone interview. The in person interview was scheduled through email, not on phone but that was fine with me. The interview lasted approximately 30 minutes and was basically asked if I had any questions instead of being asked questions.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JLL in June 2017.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews. Initial screening by HR followed by phone interview by hiring manager. Hiring manager described the position , responsibilities, company background information and asked if I had any questions. A comment the hiring manager made that stands out in my mind as a red flag was "you seem to be overqualified" which is the new buzz phrase used by HR and hiring managers to say "we think you are too old". Strange given that JLL touts itself to be one of the world's most ethical companies and a strong proponent of diversity. Diversity also includes diversity with respect to age. An ethical company would never discriminate against someone due to age.

    I was told I would be contacted within two weeks regarding next steps. This did not happen. I attempted to contact HR after not hearing anything by phone (always goes to voicemail and got no follow up to my messages by HR). I then emailed the HR person who initially interviewed me to check on the status of my interview and for any feedback. No response.
    Disappointing experience overall.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JLL in June 2017.

    Interview

    I received a message from HR less than a week after applying to set up a phone interview. They asked basic questions (work history, why I was looking for a new position, etc). I was told the next steps would be another interview with the hiring manager. I got a call a few days after setting up the next round. The HM asked why I was interested in the industry, and some situational questions (ie: tell me about a difficult client/etc). I followed up with the recruiter a week and a half later and never heard back. I had to log back into their careers site portal two weeks later to find out that the job had been closed and my application was not selected.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at JLL (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very professional and comfortable. Great environment and seems to be a solid company with team environment. Phone screening a little uncomfortable but face to face was much better. Hard to express ones knowledge over the phone. Went on interview knowing they had already made a decision but glad I did. Great experience.

    HR Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JLL in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by HR in a few days to schedule a phone interview. The whole interview felt very awkward, as if the interviewer either wasn't experienced or interested. Only asked me one question "tell me about yourself" and then proceeded by asking me if I had any questions. I asked more questions than I was asked, and the questions that I had asked elicited very short and vague responses. The total interview was supposed to last about 30 mins and it only lasted about 10. At the end, the interviewer didn't even say anything in relation to the next steps or the process. The last words before she hung up were "thank you, talk soon." This left me very confused as to whether I even had a real interview or not. Very disappointed as I spent hours researching the company and the role, it all just felt like a waste of time. Never heard anything back from them so I assume I didn't get the offer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JLL (Portland, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I found the job posting on Indeed. I was emailed by an HR rep to do a pre-screening phone interview- it was standard, probably about 15 minutes, and fairly positive, with no additional application process required. I was contacted one day later by a manager to schedule an interview at their offices. I met with the two managers I would be supporting if hired. The interview was non-confrontational and friendly. I felt at ease. The next day I followed up with a mailed note. I never heard from them again.

    Interview

    JLL wasted my time asking me to go for interview in their Chicago Office (AON building). THey already had in mind internal candidates and they did not even had decency to respond on any of my follow up emails. I would not consider this company again!!!
