    Assistant Property Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    It was a very long interview process. I met with three different people, including their main client prior to a decision being made. The job was offered to me, but my minimum salary requirement was at the top of their salary cap for the position. It was hard to tell if there was room for improvement, so I ended up turning down the job. Seems like a decent company though, they definitely are thorough and want to make sure that they find good people for their company.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask what your weakness is when you first start. Mine was not based on personal credentials but rather my unfamiliarity with their portfolio.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Strategic Sourcing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Fairly typical sequence in terms of initial HR contact/phone interview; scheduling of additional phone interviews (due to job location being geographically separate from interviewers) and final in-person interview with hiring manager. Breakdown:

    --After applying on-line, I was contacted next day by an internal recruiter and scheduled a phone screen with that individual.
    --Upon successful completion of phone screen, I was scheduled with two peer-level, subject matter colleagues to discuss technical knowledge, accomplishments, etc.
    --After second phone interview, I was scheduled with a more senior subject matter expert.
    --Phone interview with hiring manager to establish more cultural fit, client needs, fit with the client team, etc.
    --Final step was a brief, in-person meeting with the hiring manager.

    Overall, good questions, good process.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at CBRE in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I participated in a phone interview. I was very pleased with ease with which the interviewer conducted our conversation. She was able to share details about the company culture while also sharing her personal experience as an employee. I felt comfortable sharing my work history and my professional and personal goals

    Interview Questions
    • Although the interview process it about sharing who you are, I still felt a bit challenged when asked about my story. You realize that the resume only tells part of the story   Answer Question

    Building Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CBRE.

    Interview Details

    Set up for the interview through a recruiting agency conference. Second interview of the day out of five and found it to be the most enjoyable, interviewer did really well at setting the tone of the interview and asked the best questions that I think directly relate to the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Situation question involving how I would prioritize different issues related to the job arising at the same time. "If the president of the company were giving a speech in one room and complained that the room was too warm, at the same time one of the main cooling towers developed major issues, also while one of the toilets began flooding a bathroom on one of the floors. Where would you begin? How would you prioritize this situation?"   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't really "decline" the recruiting agency that I was working with pushed other offers because they were ready to get me started asap and didn't seem interested in letting me follow up with CBRE.
