    Operations Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CBRE (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I initially interviewed with the hiring manager and then the hiring manager's supervisor, which both of whom would be on the team for my first position within the company. After interviewing, the hiring manager informed me that she would like me to start ASAP and that I would be a great fit for the team and the company. I accepted the offer once I received it and have been happy at CBRE ever since.

    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    Never made it to an interview. Was told in a brief e-mail after careful consideration I have not been selected for the position. "Careful"! Was also told I could apply for other positions in the future. If there is no interest from a veteran with 5 years as a military admin over 10 years administrative experience working with property management in an office setting I will assume I am not qualified for any office role you may have. Poor choice of words that they carefully considered this candidate. I would not bother with this company!

    Client Service Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Conshohocken, PA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE (Conshohocken, PA).

    Interview

    Typical interview process. Initial phone screen, then an in-person interview. Standard interview questions. Wanted to know if I was interested in getting a real estate broker license. Later, met with another client services coordinator. Job description online seemed to emphasize graphic design skills, but description of the role in the interview seemed to emphasize admin experience. Salary offered was low.

    Client Service Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was a pretty simple interview. I applied online and they took around a month to respond. They called me for a phone interview and after that they wanted me to come in for a face to face interview. It was pretty basic question of administrative. Also they try to test and make some question that can trick to see how you answer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    After two phone interviews, I was brought in to meet with a panel. The interview was professional but casual and I felt very comfortable speaking with CBRE employees. The conversation lasted about 45 minutes and a few weeks later, I received an email with a link to take a test based on programs I'd primarily be using in the position.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE (Detroit, MI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Typical Hiring process. Applied on company site, phone interview and in person interview. All went smoothly. I had two people interviewing me at the same time, which can be difficult to handle. Most of the questions were straight forward and based on skill set. The interviewers did a lot of the talking and it was centered around job duties, travel and location(s) of travel, and skill set matching to duties. Felt very good about the interview.
