Real Estate Analyst Interview
I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at HFF (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.
The in person interview was in between formal and informal. Senior Level Managers were coming and going as their schedules allowed for them to interact with the process. A constant stream of Analysts and Associates pairing up together to ask a host of fit questions lasted for 3 hours. There was nothing really technical in nature to the interview or process.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HFF in April 2010.
I was contacted by an admin to schedule a date. She had to call back and reschedule due to a scheduling conflict with one of the people I was to interview with. So the interview was pushed back a week. There is no receptionist and looks like very little admin help. The bullpen is virtually empty. Most employees remaining are director level and above. During the interview it became apparent that my career goals and the position were not in alignment.
