    Found the job on craigslist, and they took about a week to get back to me. The interview was pretty basic and lasted about 40 min. Asked me about my typing skills and if i had a car and my phone skills. Overall after the inperson interview they said that was just the start of the hiring process and it would be "quick" 45 days

    Real Estate Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Coldwell Banker.

    Interview Details

    The first step of the interview process was through the company website. There was a simulation test with questions regarding real estate transactions and mortgage calculations. The simulation also included videos that you critiqued on whether or not the situation was handled properly and if it wasn't you were asked to explain what you would have done in that situation. Once the test was submitted and reviewed, I was contacted by the hiring manager and had a casual phone interview. It covered items like previous work experience and why you want to be a real estate agent. At the end of the phone interview an in person interview was scheduled for a few days later. It also was casual and friendly. I met the Managing Broker immediately after the in person interview and signed the papers to begin working with the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Since this is strictly a commission position, the hiring agent is more interested in how you present yourself and your personality so they can match you with the best Managing Broker for you to work with. So there were no hard questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was not a lot of room for negotiation. It is strictly a commission job, the commission is referred to as a split with the company. It is a tiered commission split where the more money the agent makes, the higher the agents percentage of the split is. You can ask the company to pay for your customized A-boards or customized business cards.
