    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CBRE in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – 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.

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tysons Corner, VA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CBRE.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for the position by an outside recruiter who set up the initial interview with the office manager. I met with the manager for about an hour, the office was lovely and the staff all looked friendly and happy - a welcoming office environment which I liked. Because this was a team structure I would need to be interviewed by the entire team so I went in for 2 subsequent interviews due to timing.

    Client Services Specialist/Market Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBRE in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Prior phone interviews went well, even after I told them that I do not have extensive Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop experience. When asked in person, I was immediately turned away and then offered an inferior position to my qualifications. Expert level graphic design is the first and foremost qualification for this position.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The job posting was not what I interviewed for. It seems that they have a team of Client Services coordinators with different specialties. As a current coordinator at another company with a marketing degree, I was ready to speak on my experience and it would be straight forward. I was really surprised when I sat down and they said they were looking for someone with strong graphic design skills. Apparently the opening was for a position that was more heavy in InDesign and marketing in the specialty. So specialized to the point where a Portfolio was needed at a future round of interviews.
