I interviewed at CoStar Group in October 2013.
Interview Details – First step was a virtual, prerecorded interview. Was very impersonal and awkward to be recording interview responses through a webcam. Second step was an in-person, on-campus interview. Final step was a visit and office tour in Washington, DC.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CoStar Group in September 2013.
Interview Details – This was a contract position. After submitting application, I received a phone call from my soon to be supervisor that set up the interview.The initial interview was in the morning, and during lunch, the interviewer along with other management, selected which candidate to hire. I was called at 1pm, and training was that afternoon. The brief training mainly focused on company specif computer programs.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. "Why do you want the job? Will you stay the entire contract?" Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Wasn't one.
I applied online and interviewed at CoStar Group.
Interview Details – This company is a nightmare to interview for. For an entry level job which pays 40K a year, this is a multi-hour commitment for the applicant. First, you must complete a phone interview, which lasts 45 minutes to an hour. Then, if you are offered an in-person interview, you must meet with three people in person. Total time for this is between 2.5 and 3 hours.
Interview Question – What do you consider to be the accomplishment that you are most proud of in your life? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at CoStar Group.
Interview Details – Sent application via Linked in. Contacted two days later for a phone interview. Phone interview went well. Brought in for formal interview and onboarding. While I was impressed with the office, the surroundings, and the presentation by HR, my previous research on the company raised some concerns. Did not accept offer.
Interview Question – "Will you be committed for at least a year" hit me as odd. Then recruiter explained a "two thirds" turnover rate. Red Flag. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – It seemed too good to be true, and based on other sources, it is.

It was a very organized process, the recruiter meet with me and explained the position and was suppose to serve as my advocate. Then I met with a research manager, standard interview questions I suppose. Next, I did a mock call, and met with a director,
