    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with sr. Brokers and management. They called us back on a couple of occasions, and love that I was persistent in my pursuit of the job. It's a tough interview and very competitive to get the job given how lucrative the business has become.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CBRE (Toronto, ON) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Fairly standard interview where they asked strengths/weaknesses...etc. The HR rep was very nice and she explained the job in detail. They also wanted a writing sample of mine which was fine but definitely have something good ready to submit to her.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at CBRE (Calgary, AB).

    Interview

    I sent in my job application and followed up with a phone call. Was contacted within a couple weeks and they asked me to come in for an interview. The first interview went well; they didn't ask too many difficult questions. It seemed more to find out whether I would fit into the organization or not. Had a brief second "interview" where they offered me the job!

    Negotiation

    Not very flexible on negotiations.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at CBRE (Vancouver, BC) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I talked to a person over the phone. They asked me basic questions about myself and what my ambitions were and where I was headed towards. It was a long call about an hour. Then I had two tests that I was subjected to. Overall a long and hard process that was not very effective.

    Interview

    Spoke with the HR recruiter and never received a follow up call. I was under the impression the HR recruiter would call back. I am assuming it is because I have no Indesign experience?

    Interview process was quick, friendly. Only had to make an appearance once. The only part that took a while was doing a formal application through the website, and going through all the steps of the hiring process. (Typical).

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    I submitted an application to the online portal. I received a call several days later from the Associate Director who let me know that there was a part-time position available if I would like to consider it. She mentioned it would be a good place to start with the company without any commercial real estate experience, and I would be able to move into a full-time role as one opened up.
    The manager at an onsite property called me to come in and meet. It was a very laid-back interview with just general work experience questions.

    Negotiation

    There was no room for negotiation. The hourly rate was already set and she let me know before I came in to make sure it would be something I could agree to.
