    Interview

    The guy who interviewed me was an absolute jerk. Started doodling while I was talking to him. Acted condescending and seemed very unprepared. Made the company seem very unprofessional.

    sales intern position Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap (San Francisco, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    They seem to hire a group of young adults, with little to no experience in sales and real estate. You meet with Jeff and speak to him about why you are interested, why you would be a good fit, etc. and he speaks to you about why Marcus is a good company. The interview is more of a conversation to make sure you are personable and willing to work. After, they forward you to one of the brokers who you will be working under if hired. He or she goes through the same process. Essentially, they are just trying to get to know you, it is a very casual interview, or at least mine was. After speaking with the broker you will be sent an online test to test your personality and knowledge of the sales industry.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult or unexpected, pretty straightforward process.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The company is entirely commision based and as a recent college graduate I need an income. On average, you do not make your first sale until a year or two after starting the job.

    Client Services Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Interview consisted mostly of the interviewer talking, with very few direct questions about my skills or experience. I learned that they were looking for a specific, highly outgoing personality type, which had not been explained at all in the ad. The atmosphere, as observed during my interview and as described by the interviewer, seemed like it had the potential for drama and office politics. It certainly didn't have the healthy, positive vibe of other offices I've seen and worked in.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap.

    Interview

    After applying I was contacted about 3 days later. I was given a first interview where the hiring manager informed me about the position and what it consisted of. He asked standard questions including strengths, weaknesses, why their company, etc. I was given a chance to ask all the questions I wanted to ask. I then was introduced to an agent who I would be "shadowing" if given the position and interviewed with him as well. I was told to contact them at a later date if I was still interested.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty straight forward. I think they were just looking for my ability to articulate my thoughts. Their business models involves getting as many people in place to succeed, with the thought that the cream will rise to the top and the dead wood will move on.

    • How do you expect to manage the expectation of not closing a deal for at least 6 months?   Answer Question
