    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HFF (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. After I applied I was contacted by HR who did a screening interview and then told me that I would hear back from the department head if they were interested in me. I heard back a day or so later, and scheduled a phone interview with the department head, and then came in for an in person interview with a few people in the office. I was made a formal offer a few days later.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was happy with the salary but was disappointed in some of the benefits which were non negotiable. Maternity/Paternity leave and vacation days.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HFF (Dallas, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Went into their Dallas office to meet with one person and ended up meeting 6 different people. Followed up with another phone interview with someone else who wasnt in the office that day. Have been invited back for 2nd round in person interview and they seem to be aware that I am traveling on my own dime and are making the efforts to condense everything they need to do into one super day for me. Overall, really great people and everyone is helpful if you reach out to them.

    Behavioral questions. Company focuses on culture first. Education and skills were second in the interview, but company seemed to be able to balance potential with current skill level. Process was extrapolated for 2-3 months and 4-5 interviews. High competition.
