Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CoStar Group in August 2015.

Interview

I learned of CoStar on LinkedIn. I was impressed with the recruiter who proactively recognized the benefits of my background with CoStar's requirements. She represented the company very well and I found her to be professional, friendly and knowledgeable. She was prompt with follow-up materials so I could learn more. After several discussions, we agreed that this particular opportunity was not the optimal fit.

Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CoStar Group (Atlanta, GA) in July 2012.

    total of 3 interviews, one via phone, one via office and the third was a video pitch meeting. It is quite straight forward, know your background, know where you want to go and you will do fine.

    Very straight forward, you will be expected to make most of your income via commissions not salary. If you try to negotiate the salary it will not go well, but then again it was for a sales position.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed 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.
