    Interview

    Phone interview first, this was pretty casual, covered what was on my resume. Interviewed with a couple people, very scripted not much discussion. Very behavior based questions, give me an example of a time when... You never heard from the people you interviewed with again, since they weren't in HR they were accounting managers.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Dallas, TX) in August 2014.

    The interview process is a panel interview. It includes a basic accounting exam and acute questions regarding your general understanding of accounting. In addition to knowing your accounting background they will ask situational questions such as "tell me about a time where you had too much on your plate and knew you wouldn't make deadlines, how did you handle this?".

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with HR first that went about 30 minutes long. They had several behavioral questions as well as the questions from resume. I then got a second interview with the Accounting Manager and the Controller. The second round of interview was very easy and they talked more than I did.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Bloomington, MN) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted of a phone interview, in person with 2 managers. Questions were basic accounting questions and debit and credit questions. How would you handle conflict or challenges. Accounting test afterwards took 1 hour. I feel this test was good because knowing everyone is capable of accounting after hired. Too many people lie on resumes nowadays and testing weeds these types out. After 1 week after the initial in person, I was called and offered the position - then background checks.

    The interview process was relatively quick and professional. The intitial phone call was received that my resume was being considered for interview. I did not receive a call back for that position. I received another call approximately 2 weeks later concerning an interview for another postion within the company and was contacted in 2 days to schedule the interview. The interview was conducted within 2 weeks and I received the offer 2 weeks later. I started the new career 2 1/2 later. The interview was well rounded and comfortable. The questions were professional and insightful. There was also an opportunity to ask the interviewer questions concerning the position and the company. I was also given a compentancy and skills test at the same time. I left the interview feeling confident and relaxed. The office personnel seemed to be working but not frustrated and the office environment seemed modern and efficient.
