    Client Service Coordinator Interview

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied through their main website. They called me after two or three weeks after to come for an interview in person. I setup the interview to days after the call. The interview went really nice. They make you do some test to see if you understand their process. Ask you about yourself and what can you do for them. It was like a 30 minute interview. After that they call me a week after to tell me I got the job. Two weeks of background check. Make sure you are detail oriented and organized.

    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.

    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.
