    I worked at Cottingham & Butler full-time for less than a year


    Hour long lunch breaks and no overtime were the best perks the company offered.


    Least diverse company I have ever worked for. It has a very 50s feel in the office. The male employees have unprofessional language not only at their desks, but also while leading meetings. I heard more about sports and how "hot" the newest female in the department was, than actual work related conversation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce all members to act processional, including yourselves.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Cottingham & Butler in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a position online and was emailed to set up a phone interview, at which time I found out I was not being considered for the position I initially applied for but instead for 2 better positions. I had 2 in-person interviews in the same day, followed by a group interview a few weeks later.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember any questions being difficult or unexpected. The interviews were relaxed and comfortable.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The job was offered near the top of my salary range, as I expected. I asked for a little more but they could not do it.
