Marketing Analyst Interview

Marketing Analyst
Raleigh, NC

I applied online and interviewed at KB Home.

Interview Details – I had to take a mini SAT Test before the interview, which I passed. During the interview I answered all questions and asked them what they were looking for in a candidate. They said someone like me. I didn't get an offer for no apparent reason except I am black and everyone who works there is white.

Difficult Interview

Senior Customer Service Coordinator Interview

Senior Customer Service Coordinator
Las Vegas, NV

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at KB Home in September 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online and received a call from an outsourced recruiter. Did a quick resume review/job description and scheduled an onsite assessment. The assessment took about 45 minutes in their office and consisted of reading (ie critical thinking) and math questions. The recruiter had prepped me for the type of questions. I felt it was tougher than other pre-employment assessments I've taken and left questioning if I had passed.
The recruiter called me 1 day later and told me I had passed and then scheduled a phone interview. The phone interview was star type questions and then she told me she would call me to schedule an 1:1 on-site. I was set up for a few days after the phone interview.
The hiring manager was friendly and his questions were pretty standard about scheduling and abilities. He mentioned the position was slightly different than what I had applied for so I asked him if he thought I would be a good fit and he said very positively that I would. I got a canned rejection letter 2 days later. I emailed the recruiter and asked for feedback. I never received a reply.

VP Sales not really a people person didn't ask any questions. I received a call about a week later telling me they were going to pass on me for the position.
