Client Services Coordinator Interview

Client Services Coordinator
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CBRE in June 2010.

Interview Details – It was a rather predictable interview. Similar to other corporate processes.

Interview Question – I interviewed with a consultant to the team, which was not a great reflection of the company. I enjoyed the consultant's personality and outlook on the position much more than the actual CBRE team. Nothing strikes me as unexpected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Straight forward.
