    Associate Broker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap (Portland, OR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    There was a standard DISC assessment they gave to determine if you fit the typical sales profile initially. The rest of the interview was fairly straight forward. asking questions if you can handle making 300 phone calls a week to build their/your database even if they are fake and if you mind wearing a suit and tie every day.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Commercial Real Estate Broker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap.

    Interview

    Basically it was just like a normal interview, he looked over my resume and asked questions. We talked about how it is a 100% commission based job with no salary, and I expressed my qualms with that aspect. In the end, I didn't accept because to me starting a job shouldn't be a risky venture, it should make life more stable.

    Social Media Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marcus & Millichap.

    Interview

    1st interview with hiring manager, 2nd interview with hiring mgr & VP. Both were basic interviews, standard questions, nothing special. Hiring manager didn't know much about social media campaigns, VP knew less but that's why they chose to hire a social media manager. It would have been nice had the position not radically changed into a basic data entry position a month later.

    Negotiation

    I was offered a salary that was acceptable to me.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the managers of the office - regional and operations manager. Personality based. Two interviews with each manager. I went to the office a third time to be told I was getting hired. It was a seamless and very easy process. The interview consisted of learning about you but they also made sure you knew the job entailed a lot of cold calling.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions
