Interview Question – 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

Assistant Property Manager Interview

Assistant Property Manager

Interviewed at CBRE

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 Question – 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

Reason for Declining – Declined based on salary requirements.

Strategic Sourcing Manager Interview

Strategic Sourcing Manager

Interviewed at CBRE

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.

Interview Question – The hardest thing as a client account assignment was trying to translate those things I had previously done. But overall, nothing that I couldn't address appropriately.   Answer Question
