    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Marcus & Millichap in September 2014.

    Interview

    This was a very strange interview process. I sent in a resume and was asked to come in and interview. When I arrived, there was another young gentleman sitting in the lobby who had already been waiting for a half an hour for his interview. Long story short, I waited for almost an hour past my interview time and was taken in and only give 10 minutes to answer very brief questions about my experience. The man interviewing me was disinterested and did admitted he did not remember looking at my resume.

    Interview

    The guy who interviewed me was an absolute jerk. Started doodling while I was talking to him. Acted condescending and seemed very unprepared. Made the company seem very unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Interview consisted mostly of the interviewer talking, with very few direct questions about my skills or experience. I learned that they were looking for a specific, highly outgoing personality type, which had not been explained at all in the ad. The atmosphere, as observed during my interview and as described by the interviewer, seemed like it had the potential for drama and office politics. It certainly didn't have the healthy, positive vibe of other offices I've seen and worked in.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marcus & Millichap.

    Interview

    After applying I was contacted about 3 days later. I was given a first interview where the hiring manager informed me about the position and what it consisted of. He asked standard questions including strengths, weaknesses, why their company, etc. I was given a chance to ask all the questions I wanted to ask. I then was introduced to an agent who I would be "shadowing" if given the position and interviewed with him as well. I was told to contact them at a later date if I was still interested.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty straight forward. I think they were just looking for my ability to articulate my thoughts. Their business models involves getting as many people in place to succeed, with the thought that the cream will rise to the top and the dead wood will move on.

    Commercial Real Estate Broker Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Marcus & Millichap (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I went in as a new comer to the real estate business. I sat in on a presentation by the hiring regional manager. He was to the point and explained the company's objectives and direction using a Power Point Presentation slide show. The presenter mentioned out of a room of 25 people he only had one opening, which was a bit nerve wrecking.

    Interview Questions

    • After the presentation, I went in for a second interview and noticed a discrepancy in the material presented. The commission split was not as he had presented at the first interview. Perhaps this was a way to dissuade me from going further. He was also firm about the long hours required without pay realistically for two years. I was very discouraged and didn't see a point in pursuing this job any further.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I went into this knowing I had very little chance of being hired, seeing that my educational background and experience have very little to do with commercial real estate. However, I saw the position listed on my university careers website. To my surprise, I got called back by the hiring manager within a few hours. In my opinion, the guy had already made up his mind that he wasn't going to hire me before I went in for the interview, so I was kind of disappointed that he wasted my time as well as his own. The interview itself was pretty rough. You better be able to back up everything you say because he asks you "Why?" after every answer you give. He flat out told me that I wasn't a strong candidate towards the end of the interview, which I appreciated, rather than most hiring managers who tell you they will be in contact with you soon. I understand that it's business, never personal, but I would have appreciated it a lot more, however, if they guy didn't have such an arrogant air around him the entire time.

    Interview Questions

    • Conversation somehow got steered to how I didn't want to move out of state for the "promise of maybe". He insinuated that it was because I wasn't adventurous (I'm actually quite adventurous) and proceeded to tell me how he moved his family across the country and he was adventurous because of it.   Answer Question
