    Valuation Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Colliers International.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, in-person interview... No contact from anyone after the phone interview; I called HR a couple of weeks later and soon had an in-person interview. No response to my thank you letters or any contact after the in-person interview although only one other person was being interviewed for the position. It seemed like a waste of time and resources.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Colliers International in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process took several months. I received a phone call from the manager of the position a month after applying, and was scheduled for an interview with her and two senior members of the team, for about 45-60 minutes. A follow up interview was scheduled shortly after for the following week, along with an aptitude test.

    In the follow up interview, all of the excitement and energy of the previous interviewers was gone. While it went well, the interviewer, a department manager, didn't seem very excited about the future of the company or her job, and admitted she was a micromanager.

    Then came the aptitude test. I was told the department was using current software on Mac OSX, but they were in fact using outdated software, and though technically on a Mac, they actually used Parallels to run Windows. Obviously I didn't do well.

    I was told we would set up an additional interview shortly, but after several emails, I never heard from anyone at that company again. Obviously my aptitude test was a concern, but after so much work and several rounds of interviews, I would have at least expected my emails to be returned.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Colliers International in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Hiring Process took about two weeks. I applied for the position on their careers webpage and waited for a week for some sort of response from the company. After I had not heard from them, I took it upon myself to email my resume directly to someone in the Marketing department. I was called in for an interview that day! It was about a week before the interview took place and it went as well as it could have gone. They are a great company that clearly knows how to be successful.

    Interview Questions
    • The environment was very laid back and the interviewers were very friendly, doing their best to make me feel comfortable in their environment. Given that, there were no unexpected or difficult questions.   Answer Question

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Colliers International.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was lengthy. First, I interviewed with an employment agency, and then had two additional interviews with the people who became my bosses.

    Interview Questions
    • For me, the most difficult questions involved knowledge of financial/accounting practices since I am fairly new to the field of business. For anyone versed in these topics, the interview should be fairly simple.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Brief. After my third interview, I waited about 3 days before being offered the job. At that point, all I had to do was pass a drug test.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Colliers International in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met with a recruiter in a coffee shop, walked through my resume, and talked at LENGTH! Met 2 team members in the office for the 2nd interview. They had some questions but mostly it was conversational. came back a 3rd time to meet another EA and the HR Director I was going to support. Came back a 4th time to spend additional time with the HR Director and had coffee with another EA who has been supporting the Director while they look to fill this position. This was an excruciating process. The HR Director ended up asking me questions that were against typical interview procedure...ie. my home life (kids? married? etc) I felt uncomfortable to answer the questions and probably should have just walked away. But I answered truthfully. Turns out they rejected me as a candidate because of my situation, they said they felt I had "lied" about my situation and they didn't want a liar. I was highly offended and gave the recruiter a piece of my mind
