    Valuation Associate Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    I received a call from the mai and we arranged a meeting on campus. It was just the managing director that I would potentially be working for. During the interview it became clear I would not be hired because I was uncertain of what I want to do. It was a mistake on my part. But otherwise great company and great experience. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The interview was low key.

    Client Services Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southfield, MI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (Southfield, MI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    This was a disorganized mess right from step one. Initially, I was contacted by a recruiter, which had much difficulty checking and following up emails, as well holding to appointments that were made for a phone interview. After the phone interview it was approx. a week later that I was contacted for an interview. I was considering a major move in order to take the position, so it was understood that I would be driving a great distance in order to meet them face-to-face. After taking time off of my current job, renting a vehicle and driving a great distance to meet them, the interview seemed to go swimmingly. "By the end of the interview I felt that I was without a doubt going to be offered the position, and was told that I would hear something very quickly (by early the following week). I sent my Thank you and waited. The following week they requested another phone interview, which was a mess trying to situate. The individual was once again terrible at following-up emails and holding to the appointment that was made. After speaking with this individual I was then asked to send along additional materials for her to review. I did as asked and never heard a word (once again email follow-up issues). I then sent a thank you to all of the folks that I had spoken with and conveyed my interest in the position. More than a week had passed so I reached out to the head honcho and asked when I could anticipate hearing something about the position to no avail. Once again I was ignored, there came one additional follow-up after that letting them know that I was still interested and I was beginning to feel like a psycho stalker at this point. And here I am over a month later and no one has bothered to thank you for my time, effort, money or interest or make any sort of an offer and at this point I would not accept an offer either. Who wants to work for a company that doesn't even have the courtesy to respond to an email after you bent over backwards for them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewers were very accommodating and flexible about my schedule. Although I was abroad they gave me time/dates to chose for the interview. I was selected for the first interview so they asked for the next level interview the week after. I was interviewed by two people: the Occupancy Planning director & the Americas Planning Lead. At the end of the interview which I though went well, they asked if I could be present at the job site in two weeks, but did not give any feedback on my status 2 weeks after or reply to my thank you email.

    Client Service Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was a phone interview. About a week later I was invited for an in person interview where I met with the Regional Client Services Manager along with the 4 brokers I would be working for. Overall the interview was pleasant - no difficult questions and everyone was friendly. I was feeling positive but then there was absolute no feedback after I spent 90minutes interviewing. Pretty disappointed with the lack of feedback.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    The first round was a phone call with someone from HR. Second round was a brief, phone interview with the hiring manager. Third round was on-site with the hiring manager. Overall it seemed to go well - the hiring manager was very personable, and the interview ended with the manager saying they would be in touch within the next week or so. Well, now it is six weeks later, and I've had no contact - even though I sent a follow-up "thank you" email after two weeks, expressing continued interest in the position - a perfect opportunity to say "thanks, but no thanks." I recognize that everyone is busy, but it's really quite terrible they chose not to send a one or two line email after that many rounds of interviewing.
