    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    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.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBRE.

    Interview Details

    Started with a brief phone interview from a recruiter who asked very basic questions. The next interview was in person and it was pretty easy. Basic questions that dug down into my experience but nothing out of the blue or tricky. I turned down the offer for a third interview simply because the job didn't fit my needs but it seemed like a bunch of nice people from what I could tell.

    CBRE Wheel Program- Washington D C Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CBRE in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for position and received a response within two weeks of submission. Interview was conducted online, with automated questions and a given time limit for each answer. This was the first interview I had experienced in this fashion and it was slightly overwhelming because of the lack of person-to-person interaction and the time restricted response period.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about an experience in which you faced unexpected challenges? How did you overcome these difficulties?   View Answer

    Wheel Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at CBRE in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out initial online application. Received an invite to take a video-submission based interview. With this, there were 8 behavioral questions. They were a lot tougher than the other interviews I had done, more obscure. You had 30 seconds to read the question and come up with a scenario, and 2 minutes to answer the questions.
    Personally, I wasn't asked any questions about the company itself, but they did ask me a question about my commercial real estate experience.
    They included one question on ethics as well.

    I applied online – interviewed at CBRE in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, received a call for an interview, went to the interview and never heard back. I thought the interview went well but it'd be nice if they let candidates know the position has been filled. I had to wait and wait until I called to check and still got no response until a week later.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at CBRE in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position on CBRE's career website. About 3 weeks later I received a email from the recruiter and scheduled an phone interview the day after.

    The interview went well. I was asked questions about my work experiences and other competitions at school. And at last, why I am interested in the Real Estate Market. The interview also involve how I handle with Access and SharePoint.

    I was told the hiring manager would contact me later or I should contact them. No good news up to now.
