Interview Question – Probably the personality test View Answer
I applied online and 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 Question – 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.

Interview Details – Great Manager. Interview was pretty basic. Asking questions about background and seeing if I had a good enough personality for a sales job. They then offer you a position. Two weeks of real estate classes follow. Then the New York State real estate exam for certification. Overall not too difficult. The whole process took about 2 months. Then there is a week of Coldwell Banker specific training. Great Staff. Everyone is friendly and helpful. It is a commitment though like every other full time job.

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Coldwell Banker in October 2009.
Interview Details – I went into the office as a walk-in, no appointment. The broker in charge of recruiting new agents saw me immediately and did the interview. I was given a tour and introduced to every person we came into contact with (agents, receptionists, marketing staff, etc.). There wasn't much talk of fees, mainly just alot of info about the company's standing in the marketplace. Everyone was very charismatic and receptive, but I'd recommend taking a list of questions about the fees and be sure to get specific answers.
