Investment Sales Associate Interview

Investment Sales Associate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Marcus & Millichap in February 2013.

Interview Details – Initially had a pre-screening phone interview, then was asked to come into the office. Met with several brokers who mostly asked about my resume and experience. Everyone was nice and knowledgeable. They answered all of my questions and took the time to make sure what would be expected of me.

Interview Question – What is your greatest weakness?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Another firm offered me paid training and a draw. I could have held a part time job in order to support myself at Marcus & Millichap, but I wanted to focus all my time and energy in becoming successful in Investment Sales.

Intern Interview

Intern
Fort Worth, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Marcus & Millichap in April 2009.

Interview Details – I received a phone call in response to an online application from my college website. I went to interview, everything was great except I was asked to work for free, and he would "bonus" me money on occasion. He may have been well intentioned, but as it was a 45 minute drive one way for me, I really couldn't take that. He was very nice and professional.

Interview Question – There were not any unexpected questions. It was a pleasant experience without doubt, I was just not able to work under their terms of employment.   Answer Question

Commercial Real Estate Broker Interview

Commercial Real Estate Broker
Roseville, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Marcus & Millichap in August 2012.

Interview Details – SA LA VIE! I didnt want it anyway. I got to the Roseville office on time but was kept waiting 15 minutes. The interview did NOT lead to a position offer. I will respect the interviewer and not reveal this persons name. I am not here to talk badly about this person either. My impression is that he was trying to see if I could work there based on what HE thinks can sell. He appears aggressive but that doesnt bother me. I am casual. I am aggressive when I need to be. I think he made up his mind in about the first 3 minutes of this interview. This interviewer was direct with me which was fine. I asked for clarification on something and had to re-state my question because I was a bit nervous. I wanted to know what type of person they are looking for. He mentioned aggressive, sociable.

      I dont think I got a chance to say much about myself though. I have sold before. TIP: WEAR A TIE. I didint. I am a free thinker. I dont want to look like everyone else. More on this later. Dont say you have a caring personality type either. I am guessing caring will come across in this persons eyes as weak . Not sure if this guy was having a bad day or what. He thinks he knows how to judge an applicant. Ok, my heart wasnt in it anyway. I had this sense before I even got there. He didnt ask me about the company background. If you"re going to be on the phone all day then why not just do network marketing? He was stating that there could be 2-5 grueling interviews. You could have no income for 1-2 years. Sounded like a prep to let me go. He didnt say much about the training I'm guessing because he already made up his mind at that point. 99 percent of business is generated on the phone. Uh, dude, I've worked the phones. I sincerely hope this helps you. This wasnt meant to be for me. At least in network marketing you can get some training on sales and a better understanding of why people buy. This wasnt a good interview for me. Maybe I was off my game. This is my way of paying it forward.

As I left I did see alot of ties hanging on the interviewers door. Everyone has their own style.
