The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CBRE.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview with HR first that went about 30 minutes long. They had several behavioral questions as well as the questions from resume. I then got a second interview with the Accounting Manager and the Controller. The second round of interview was very easy and they talked more than I did.

Bloomington, MN

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at CBRE in August 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process consisted of a phone interview, in person with 2 managers. Questions were basic accounting questions and debit and credit questions. How would you handle conflict or challenges. Accounting test afterwards took 1 hour. I feel this test was good because knowing everyone is capable of accounting after hired. Too many people lie on resumes nowadays and testing weeds these types out. After 1 week after the initial in person, I was called and offered the position - then background checks.

Interview Question – What do you do with retained earnings at month end?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiations are important at this company. Worth trying. It worked for me.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CBRE in December 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was relatively quick and professional. The intitial phone call was received that my resume was being considered for interview. I did not receive a call back for that position. I received another call approximately 2 weeks later concerning an interview for another postion within the company and was contacted in 2 days to schedule the interview. The interview was conducted within 2 weeks and I received the offer 2 weeks later. I started the new career 2 1/2 later. The interview was well rounded and comfortable. The questions were professional and insightful. There was also an opportunity to ask the interviewer questions concerning the position and the company. I was also given a compentancy and skills test at the same time. I left the interview feeling confident and relaxed. The office personnel seemed to be working but not frustrated and the office environment seemed modern and efficient.

Interview Question – Do you have any questions for us?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no need to negotiate because the offer was fair.
