    I applied online and received a request for an in-person interview within a week or two. Went to their office and interviewed with Client Services Manager and another Coordinator I would be working with. The interview was straight forward. Asked about design experience and pieces of my work. Said they would get back to me in the next few weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBRE (Tulsa, OK).

    Was very nice. Asked some questions but mostly explained their expectations. It was a comfortable feeling. Did not get to meet anyone higher than the Chief engineer. That was a little frustrating.

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    I was invited for an interview after applying online. It lasted about 30 minutes and consisted of questions regarding my resume. No behavioral or technical questions. I really enjoyed learning more about CBRE during the interview. However, one of the managers generally did not seem interested in the interview from the second he walked in the room.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CBRE (Boston, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I went into the office three times. First, I met with an HR representative as a screening process. I then met with the head of the research team, who outlined the role and its requirements. She did ask me a few questions but they were very simple and required no preparation. Finally, I met with the remaining two members of the research team. This was a more comprehensive interview, but it was not overly difficult. As a whole the process was relatively easy, however it was very competitive. There were many people interviewing for one spot. The team only consists of four people, and only two of the positions would be considered entry level. It was a fine experience, however they never contacted me again after the interview. I found this unprofessional, because the interview went smoothly and I definitely at least deserved an email saying they were not interested.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CBRE.

    Interview

    Had a great screening conversation with the hiring manager. The conversation was great, and I could tell that he enjoyed me asking a lot of questions. Followed up by email immediately following the interview, and went three weeks without hearing from him. After sending another follow up email he let me know they went with someone else. Wish the communication had been better.
