    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at CoStar Group (Irvine, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Very friendly phone interview with recruiter. She was easy to talk to and very professional. Shje asked questions about job experience, discussed the position and would have set up an in-person interview but the timing was not right for me. This recruiter was professional and had a great personality.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Bad timing but would very much hope to be considering down the road
