    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at CoStar Group in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Resume was submitted with full list of experience, accolades, recommendations from past employers, etc. A few phone interviews were conducted and the process took quite a while, but I imagine it was because they took care in their selection.

    Negotiation Details
    They were willing to negotiate within in a small range. The company is large, so know position levels and what they are willing to pay based on experience

    Second is a historical and behavioral interview with a manager, about 90 mins
    Third sit with a current researcher and see what they do, this is a good way to see the job first hand, lasts about 30 minutes.
    Lastly you have a brief 30 minute interview with the director.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bethesda, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CoStar Group in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my school's career center website, got a call back a few days later. Took a phone interview which lasted roughly 30 minutes. After that, got invited for an in person interview, which was comprised of a cakewalk computer skills test, shadowing an employee, interview with a manager, and interview with a director. Got an offer a few days later. Entire process took about a week.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was so bland that no questions can be really recalled. Just expect cookie cutter behavioral stuff.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    All the job ads clearly laid out the salary and benefits package beforehand, so I did not really negotiate. This being an entry level position, I had the feeling there was little negotiation involved any way.
