    Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portsmouth, NH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Coldwell Banker (Portsmouth, NH) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed at two different Coldwell Bankers. The first seemed like some kind of boot camp that was made unreasonably difficult. Too much driving around. Training here, training there, and you would need to drive an hour to get some other training like twice a week. The agents at the front desk looked scared and dripped with desperation. The place had a very corporate air about it. The other interview was uninformative. It was long and I didn't get any real useful information. Was told to come back for another interview for the info I really wanted.

    Interview

    Very easy you go through the office ladies first and then you interview with the realtor. The questions were all very basic noting hard or out of the blue. They care more about your personality.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coral Gables, FL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Coldwell Banker (Coral Gables, FL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    After a screening call, I interviewed with the Regional Manager and the Marketing Director.
    The interview went well but I never heard back from them, not even to tell me that I didn't get the job.

    Then about a month later I get a voicemail from someone in the company saying they wanted to follow up (follow up on what? It was either, I got the job or not). I returned his phone call and left a voicemail but never heard back from him either.

    Please at least have the courtesy of notifying the candidate if he/she did not get the position.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Coldwell Banker in June 2007.

    Interview

    I saw an ad in the local newspaper and faxed my resume to the company. They called me pretty much the next day and asked me to come in for an interview. I was interviewed by 2 department managers first and then by the general manager all on the same day. The department managers asked me "why I want to work for them? and similar questions. It seemed like they didn't have much interviewing experience. The interview with the general manager was a behavioral type interview where I was asked to relate my previous experience in customer service by providing specific examples..

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you exceeded the customer's expectations and what did you do?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a very difficult customer and how did you handle him/her?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Definitely negotiate your starting salary. The earning potential is pretty low; therefore, it is very important how much you start out with.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oxford, CT

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Coldwell Banker (Oxford, CT) in July 2011.

    Interview

    This position was advertised as part-time, but the number of hours was not included in the job description. I found out on the interview that the position would never exceed 20 hours per week. I was interviewed by the manager and the full-time administrative manager. They were very upfront with what they expected and what they didn't want. They told me that although they have a cleaning team in twice per week they often have to clean. For example, washing the front windows which are covered with listings taped to the window. The tape gets stuck to the windows when they change them (which I assume creates fingerprints) and also need to be cleaned from salt/sand in the winter. They told me not to talk to the agents. They both said given the opportunity the agents will tend to chat, look for sympathy, and occasionally need “a hug”! They asked if I had small children. They don't like the use of sticky notes.
