    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Short and sweet. I was offered the job on the spot. Had the help of a few local recruiters. The position was open, Managing Director was very "direct" - a pleasant experience. Interviewed for 3 positions at three locations but ended up being assigned to a smaller, on-site management office. I met with one of the Senior Real Estate managers during the process as well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CBRE (San Francisco, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted from a CBRE Recruiter from my resume that was in their database for a previous position in which I applied for, First was a phone interview from the recruiter, then 2 face to face interviews. One with the hiring manager and the team member currently doing the role. Last interview was with the HR Manager to determine organization culture fit. Entire experience was positive and moved quickly. No offer and I am sure its because they couldn't match my current salary expectations which were communicated in the initial interview stages. .
