I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Coldwell Banker (Sarasota, FL).
Submitted resume online, rec'd phone call from HR to set up interview time. Interview was basic questions and job description. Was offered the job next day. Was able to ask all the necessary questions that I had for them. Short interview but not like they were rushing. I got the feeling they were going to hire me just from my résumé.

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Coldwell Banker (Orland Park, IL) in February 2015.
Called in for an interview with the office manager and the main administrative assistant. Sat down with the two of them in the conference room for about a 15 minute meeting. Casual, low-key. I met with them on casual Friday. Felt a little awkward in my suit with the staff in their CB sweatshirts :)

I applied in-person. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Coldwell Banker (Fort Myers, FL) in January 2015.
Just asked how I would fit with this company and my goals for real estate. The interview process was very easy. I felt like I would be a good fit so was happy to join the company. There wasn't really anything that would change my mind.

- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online – interviewed at Coldwell Banker.
The initial communication was that I would handle general customer service and inquiries around the office. Arriving at the interview I received a large book and sales pitch to literally become a sales rep aka realestate agent. He claimed the service job wasn't open any longer. When asked why I wasn't notified of it he stated he thought he reached out. Nice guy but lack of communication and level of dishonesty concerned me
- Demonstrate sales Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Offered a job that would cost $4k of my own money to start.
- Accepted Offer
Just asked if you want to be full time or not, only want full time people. They asked what sales experience you have. They asked why you want to go into real estate. They wanted to know what you are looking for in a real estate company.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week – interviewed at Coldwell Banker in October 2014.
Broker in charge was extremely professional and the interview was not at all just a sales pitch for Coldwell Banker. First I had to send my resume and then I was asked for an interview. Lots of questions about previous jobs and how I handled difficult times during my career.
- Was asked to describe a time in my career where I made a mistake and how I handled it. Answer Question
