    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CBRE.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for the position by an outside recruiter who set up the initial interview with the office manager. I met with the manager for about an hour, the office was lovely and the staff all looked friendly and happy - a welcoming office environment which I liked. Because this was a team structure I would need to be interviewed by the entire team so I went in for 2 subsequent interviews due to timing.

    Client Services Specialist/Market Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBRE in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Prior phone interviews went well, even after I told them that I do not have extensive Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop experience. When asked in person, I was immediately turned away and then offered an inferior position to my qualifications. Expert level graphic design is the first and foremost qualification for this position.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at CBRE.

    Interview Details

    The job posting was not what I interviewed for. It seems that they have a team of Client Services coordinators with different specialties. As a current coordinator at another company with a marketing degree, I was ready to speak on my experience and it would be straight forward. I was really surprised when I sat down and they said they were looking for someone with strong graphic design skills. Apparently the opening was for a position that was more heavy in InDesign and marketing in the specialty. So specialized to the point where a Portfolio was needed at a future round of interviews.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBRE.

    Interview Details

    Started with a brief phone interview from a recruiter who asked very basic questions. The next interview was in person and it was pretty easy. Basic questions that dug down into my experience but nothing out of the blue or tricky. I turned down the offer for a third interview simply because the job didn't fit my needs but it seemed like a bunch of nice people from what I could tell.

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't anything difficult or unexpected honestly. They just wanted to know more about my experience.   Answer Question
