I have been working at Hines Interests Limited Partnership full-time (More than 5 years)
Management cares about lower level employee's satisfaction. For a large company they surprisingly feel like a small family business. I have not found the level of caring that Hines has in any company larger than a handful of people.
Hines has very high property management standards - that's a good thing, but it can very difficult to get a newly acquired property up to Hines Standards. My experience is that individual properties can be left to figure out the Standards for themselves. In my opinion there is not enough management support and feedback for new properties.
Advice to Management
Management is doing a great job for the most part.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hines Interests Limited Partnership.
Consisted of four interviews. The interview process took about a month, and I never received any notice that I would not be offered the job. I was overall very disappointed with their interview process. It took very long and no one communicated well. The first interview was a phone screen with HR at their corporate office.The second interview was at their office location and was with two of their property managers. They asked me basic questions about why I want to work there and asked me about my strengths and weaknesses. The third and fourth interviews consisted of meeting with another property manager and my potential co-workers. This interview felt very informal and there was not much to discuss. I felt like they repeated all questions that I had been previously asked in my other interviews.
