Research Analyst Interview

Research Analyst
Calgary, AB

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at CBRE.

Interview Details 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 Details – Not very flexible on negotiations.

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at CBRE in January 2010.

Interview Details 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 Details Long and grueling. To get hired you have to go through at least 3 interviews, not including phone interview, then the reference process is over the top!
