Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CBRE.

Interview

Intense. Multiple phone interviews, 5+ in person interviews and much needed persistence on my end. Need to show true dedication to not only CBRE but the Real Estate Industry as a whole through leveraging other interviews/offers in the industry. Interviewers have very busy schedule so need to be able to accommodate them throughout the process. Lengthy but thorough process that really drills down to who you are as a business man and how you will fit in with the company. Willingness to sacrifice for the great good of the company/yourself long term is key

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Newport Beach, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Not technical at all--all about personality, fit, and long terms goals. They want to know that you plan on staying and will contribute to the culture as a team player. A lot of producers do stay at the firm for a long time (decades in many cases).

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE in November 2014.

    Interview

    I worked with a talent acquisition agency. My first round by phone with an agency recruiter. We talked through my interest in the position and how it relates to my background. The second interview was in person at their offices. This interview delved deeper into my background and mainly focuses on my transferable skills. The third interview was over the phone with a CBRE recruiter. We discussed my background, interests and questions I had. I have been invited to a fourth round interview in person at the their offices.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (San Francisco, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I got through the first interview on campus grounds with a CBRE broker and another person from HR. If you got through, they will inform you about the second round of interview which is at the office site you'll be working at. Great working culture for those who loves aspects of sales/ marketing in real estate, or are entrepreneurial in nature. Always have the attitude of constant learning and challenging the status quo. CBRE employees take pride in what they do, and genuinely love doing what they do.

    • Can't remember them. But they're easy behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Have a good idea of what value you can offer to the company during the interview process. CBRE may not pay as much as competing companies, but once you're in, the company takes good care of you, work culture is great and there are opportunities to try out different departments.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CBRE (New Delhi (India)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The process was in our college .It started with pre placement talk. First round was Group discussion on the topic ”privatization of healthcare sector”. They preferred people who speak less but have valid points. This was an elimination round. Second round was personal interview in which general HR questions were asked.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    In all, 3 rounds of interview were conducted. First round was more of a shortlisting one. Second was slightly to know you well. After 2 rounds, offer was made by the HR. The compensation was just 10% increment on the existing salary. Even after negotiations, when the HR didnt move ahead, I thought to go ahead with CBRE as there are a lot of positive reviews about the company and its culture. After agreeing with the lesser compensation, gave the 3rd round with Regional head.

    Was selected in all 3 rounds. Post this, got to know that a formal offer would be made. However, after waiting for 2 weeks (and rejecting other calls in the meanwhile), I was informed by the HR that the position has been filled in and they would not make me offer. It was a serious case of cheating!!

    Guys, if you are really interested in this co., you are definitely not getting a good compensation and there are hardly anybody from a good/top tier B school. But if you ve made up your decision to join, plz beware of fraudulent HR practices. The consulting division may be fine but HR dept is pathetic! Unprofessional attitude is not expected from a co. which claims to be a Fortune 500 co.
