    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Clayton Holdings (Denver, CO) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and then had a 30 minute phone interview with H.R. Local recruiter called to set up a face to face interview and she was in a huge hurry- needed me to meet within the next 2 days. I set up a time and had 2 interviews scheduled with 2 different panels of 3 people each. I arrived on time (even though directions and parking instructions were confusing at best) and found I could not get up to the floor the company is on without a security code. The building receptionist had never heard of the company. I called and was told I must have been given "old" instructions and someone would come and get me when they had time. After being escorted upstairs I waited about 15 minutes and then was called back to interview with 3 people (they said the other 3 people I was supposed to meet were out that day). They could tell me very little about the actual job I was applying for. Questions were run of the mill interview questions, "what are your strengths and weaknesses? "what can you bring to the company that sets you apart from everyone else?" They said they would be making a decision in 3-5 days and despite this after 2 months I have not heard a word, but according to their website and H.R. Department the job is still open and I am still under consideration. I am kind of annoyed at their disorganization and unprofessionalism so I doubt I would consider working there even if they did contact me after all this time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Clayton Holdings.

    Interview

    I was referral by a current employee. I submitted my information via their career website. I was then by a recruiter via email to complete a case study and writing sample. Once that was complete, she called me by phone to set up a in person interview with the hiring managers. That took about two weeks after I submitted the writing sample and case study. I interviewed with three managers first, and the Operations manager after. Questions were very standard - they want to get to know you and test your knowledge of the industry to see if you would be a good fit. They will ask you a number of stiuational questions that you need to be prepared for. Always follow the SBO rule: Situation, Behavior, Outcome. Always remember to state the outcome and if you are able to provide some numbers to back what you did, that is always a plus.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Clayton Holdings (Tampa, FL) in November 2011.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume, I was emailed by the HR director and instructed to complete a questionaire and write an essay on the causes of the financial crisis. After a few weeks I was contacted again to schedule an interview. It was a pretty standard interview with them asking questions about my background and what I was looking for in a career etc.

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Clayton Holdings in May 2011.

    Interview

    Got called for a phone interview about two weeks after I applied. The phone interview went well and then I was emailed a case study and writing sample that I had to complete. About a week later I got emailed back saying they liked what I submitted and wanted to have a one on one interview as well as a panel one with three different managers. They asked me a lot of the same questions that were in the case study as well as some different ones (for ex. a particular house in a neighborhood has depreciated x much in value can you give some reasons why?). They all asked a lot of questions not too tough more of your past experiences and how you've overcome obstacles/worked with other people etc. I was told I'd be contacted shortly as they were trying to make a decision quickly but it was three months before I was e-mailed to tell me that I hadn't been picked.
