    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JLL (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was long, unorganized and confusing. During the entire process your are not sure if you are still in the running or if they have considered other candidates. It seemed that only when I contacted my recruiter or hiring manager did the process move forward. At first I was not sure if that was a test, but I later found out through my experiences that they are simply disorganized and the interview process is very decentralized. Stages of the interview process were quite rewarding, especially when meeting executives within the company. Throughout the process I was met with optimism concerning my success and potential fit within the company. It eventually led to an official offer that I was content with, but like any offer, I negotiated a slightly highly starting salary. My counter was met with my initial offer being rescinded entirely. The reasoning for my offer being rescinded was due to budgetary issues, but there were many contradictions in the email that led me to believe the reasoning was vindictive in nature.

    To JLL, please do not make a prospective candidate go through almost 3 months of interviews, extend an offer, only to rescind the offer in the last possible minute. I notified my current employer of my intention to leave, I could of been stuck in the middle with no job.

    To others applying for a job at JLL. Be very forward on how long the interview process will take and ask when they plan on filling the position. I advise to tread very carefully when negotiating your starting salary, and it is probably best to go through HR directly rather than your hiring manager.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at JLL.

    Interview

    The process was pretty quick. I applied online and got a call the following day for a quick screening. Then I was emailed about more information. The position I applied for was put in hold but then a few days later I got an email asking me to come in for an interview. The interview was great- I met with two groups of two people who were in the team I was being interviewed for. The questions weren't run of the mill at all, which I enjoyed, and focused mainly on my responsibilities in my current position. They told me I'd hear back in 1-2 weeks.

    I applied online. I interviewed at JLL (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email the next week for a phone screen interview (I scheduled the phone screen a couple days after). Waited another week and received an email for an in-person interview at their Downtown LA office. Once arrival, I met with two of their accounting staff members. After they left, two senior accounting members interviewed me. Overall interview was around 2 hours (30-45 minutes per group). After waiting for two more weeks, I checked the online portal and saw I wasn't selected.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic accounting questions. Know your journal entries about accruals and know basic accounting equation -> Assets = Liabilities + Equity. They gave me accounts with specific numbers and had to plug each one into a group to find the answer.

      What is equity?   Answer Question
    • Asked about what type of excel function would be used in a certain scenario.   Answer Question
