    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap (Long Beach, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very simple three-part process: (1) initial interview with VP; (2) personality assessment; (3) meeting with senior individuals. The personality assessment is essentially a quiz of your sales skills. I wouldn't recommend trying to game the assessment, but think about what you'd be looking for in a salesman (which is basically what you'll be): high-energy, driven, self-motivated/self-managing, etc. ALSO, think very carefully about whether you'd be willing to invest time and forgo income for the initial year or so when you'll be making very little to no money.

    Interview Questions

    • The usual. Why commercial real estate? Walk me through your resume. Prepare a bulletproof response to the "why CRE" question. Also think very carefully about how you'd respond to a question asking how you'd survive for the first year without making money (e.g., move back and live with parents; have partner support you; etc.).   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap (Ontario, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    3 different interviews. Having you wait a long time. Tells if you're committed. You don't need to know anything about real estate. It's all about selling yourself and how well you can do that. I think they tend to hire people that are successful at something.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a phone pre-interview and then an in-person interview. make sure that you can get to or live in the area of where you are applying. Traveling will not be reimbursed. The in-person interview started with a general conversation with the regional manager about strengths, why this company, goals, and future. Then if that intervietw goes well, he takes you to potential mentors and seniors in the office that would be hiring for the future positions and this can be 2 additional interviews or 5 depending on the time and the office. These are the bread and butter of the interview process and are ultimately the guys that you will be mentored by and will work on splits with. Then you leave and they followed up in the next two days and gave results and what area to focus in.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap (Ames, IA).

    Interview

    Typical sales job by the District Manager, smoozing the agent, with no detail and then hit them with reality after they've moved your license over. There were details of my job that were not in the employment contract. This caused friction for the next year and half and never got resolved.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap (Oakland, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Pretty easy interview process. Talked about your resume, and asked basic questions about previous work experiences. Manager had an elitist attitude, making you think you were inferior and would learn alot from him. However in reality, I found out later that I was making more than him in my previouw job. Anyway, also took a personality test. Then got a phone call that was hired.
