- No OfferNegative Experience
I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE.
Applied through company's website. Got a call from the corporate recruiter in Texas. Was told I was going to get a call from the hiring manager within a week but if not, then to contact the recruiter. Did not receive a call or email from the hiring manager. Contacted the recruiter via email but never received a reply.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Tysons Corner, VA).
I was contacted for the position by an outside recruiter who set up the initial interview with the office manager. I met with the manager for about an hour, the office was lovely and the staff all looked friendly and happy - a welcoming office environment which I liked. Because this was a team structure I would need to be interviewed by the entire team so I went in for 2 subsequent interviews due to timing.
- Most of the questions were pretty standard type questions, no personality type tests or "gotcha" questions Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CBRE.
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.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Bloomington, MN) in January 2015.
Talk with Recruiter and got an in person interview schedule. Meet with two different teams in the Company. Both went well but the second meeting was more interesting and a better fit for myself. Overall, very good process and quick.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CBRE (Dallas, TX) in January 2015.
It took a long time for them to call me for an interview, but it was overall a great experience. Very positive and friendly. They emailed me quickly for a second interview, however they did not follow up after over a month since the interview.
- Why do you want to work for CBRE? Answer Question
- No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at CBRE.
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.
- There really wasn't anything difficult or unexpected honestly. They just wanted to know more about my experience. Answer Question

Brief interview. They hire with very few filters. Simply require people to interview and are shown around. Not really introduced to any existing staff. Their company colors are green and white as well, also, in addition to.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CBRE in December 2014.
Interview process seemed simple at first, but I got a surprise when I showed up to the Interview. The manager didn't bother to interview me and sent in 2 young girls with no experience. They were snotty and asked stupid questions. They didn't even ask me about my prior experience as a former CBRE employee. I was more qualified than they were as far as education and experience but they treated me as if I was an idiot. I was not impressed with this branch of CBRE using "children" to conduct the interviews. I also got a bad vibe from the rest of the people in that office when I walked in. I wouldn't accept a job offer there if they paid me a million dollars. This was a property mgmt. office branch in Denver, CO. I left the interview in shock at the way I was treated. I hope CBRE one day realizes that they are missing out on hiring people with education, experience and great potential because they have caddy bimbos conducting interviews.
- Do you like a quiet office or a noisy one??? Really, this was the most stupid question! Answer Question
