    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I spoke with the office's main realtor on the phone, and came in for the interview the very next day. He spoke highly of the office and the success it was having and was boastful about his accomplishments. I looked at a few newspaper articles with his picture on them. He showed me all of the email responses he had received from the job posting, I think in an effort to persuade me to believe this job was a hot commodity, and that I would be lucky to have it. He berated other employees throughout the interview process, and was a bit abrasive, asking several questions that had to do with my sexuality, marital status, and race. He never explained the role, and I gathered that it was so he could keep it open and change it as he went.

    Interview Questions

    • He didn't ask me any questions about myself other than if I had a significant other, was married, had kids, what my schedule was like, and my compensation requirements.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered less than $10 an hour with a vague commission package that had no outline or detail as to what was required to receive that commission, only that the "potential was great." When I inquired about this, I never received a response. The whole situation was so sketchy.

    Regional Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Concord, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage (Concord, CA).

    Interview

    Initial contact came shortly after submission. The process was a little slow, but HR was responsive every time I contacted them to check on the status. Process included: phone screen, online assessment, two in-person interviews and a panel presentation. It was a very thorough process, and everyone was really great throughout. Everyone I met with was very friendly and encouraging, which made the fact that it took longer much easier to manage. After seeing some positions filled very quickly and not getting a good fit, I appreciated the thoroughness, since it shows they really want to make sure to get the right people as part of the team.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given powerpoint slides only - no notes - and had to use the information on it to create a 30 minute presentation with a 15 minute Q&A. The questions were staged and I felt I fielded them well. Then they changed gears with the last question back to a standard interview "why should we hire you?"   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage (Morristown, NJ).

    Interview

    Job interview was with Branch Manager. I had no previous experience as a realtor. They didn't ask any tough questions. Most of it was just a conversation to get to know me. Since pay is 100% commission there is not much downside to hiring anyone who walks in the door.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. You are paid if you close on houses. You are not paid if you don't.
