Phone interview first, this was pretty casual, covered what was on my resume. Interviewed with a couple people, very scripted not much discussion. Very behavior based questions, give me an example of a time when... You never heard from the people you interviewed with again, since they weren't in HR they were accounting managers.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CBRE (Newport Beach, CA) in July 2015.
Interview process was professional and extensive. Started with a typical phone interview, and quickly schedule me for an in person interview within the week. Manager and HR took turn asking questions and explaining the various duties and responsibility of the position. Answered all my questions regarding company culture, work environment, and where everything fit it.

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Memphis, TN) in June 2015.
The interview process was great. I applied online it took about two weeks to hear something back but when i did i set up for an interview June 30. I interviewed with two ladies that were very nice and easy to talk to. They had 25 base questions they had to ask that came from CBRE. One lady asked the questions while the other wrote down the responses. It took about an hour or so the complete. They told me I would either get an email of denial or an email with a test in it for me to take and if i do well enough on the test i will be contacted for a second interview. I was contacted for another interview set for July 16th. Interviewed with two more upper management women it also took an hour and they asked similar questions but a little more in depth. It also took around an hour. It is now August 10th and i have followed up twice with the corporate recruiter and she has in formed me they will finish interviews this week and make a decision by Friday 14th. It has been a long process even though they said it would be very fast. I will update whether i was offered or not when i hear back.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CBRE (Brea, CA) in June 2015.
The interview went really well. I interviewed with 2 managers and it wasn't very long with either one of them and the questions were very conversational, not your classic interview style. I asked a lot of questions and volunteered some important details about my skill set that wasn't on my resume.
- I was asked if I had my real estate licence 1 Answer
It was easy because I accepted the offer right away. I am super excited to work for the company.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Miami, FL) in June 2015.
I was interviewed by two different executives in two separate offices for this position. One was in Miami and the other in Fort Lauderdale. Overall, both interviews went well and sounded promising. There was no email or call back to let me know where I stood a month later. This was my fourth interview with this company at this office. Plan to wait for a decent amount of time with possibly no answer.

I applied through other source. I interviewed at CBRE (Houston, TX) in June 2015.
HR called me that she felt my resume is good and when I was avaliable to be interviewed. And we made it next day. Two people interviewed me, the questions were not hard, and they were very nice to me. They asked me current salary and bonus as well.

Helpful (3)No OfferNeutral Experience
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Austin, TX).
I had two phone interviews and one in person interview where I interviewed with pretty much the whole retail department. It was honestly one of the best interview experiences I ever had. That being said, the main woman interviewed with told me they would be making a decision very quickly, that I was a top candidate and assured me that she would let me know EITHER WAY if I got the job. I never heard from her again. I followed up a couple of times, and I'm pretty sure the position is still open. I find it really disappointing and also inconsiderate that they didn't keep their word and I never heard from them either way. I know this happens but since it went so well I expected more I guess.
Helpful (4)Declined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE in May 2015.
I applied online though the website and within a week or 2 they called to set up an interview. I went in to interview and met with 2 managers at the corporate office. The interview was about 25 minutes and they asked basic questions: strengths, how I problem solve, words to describe myself, etc. At the end of the interview, they said they really liked me but with the salary cap on the position they didn't think they could afford me. They were right since the salary capped at $35,000 annually.
