    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Clayton Homes (Texarkana, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    You have to pass a personality test. You have a phone screening. Then you have at least two interviews. Drug test and background check. Interviews were very long, so plan ahead. Both of mine were roughly 2-3 hours each. They also will give you a run down of do's and don'ts per company policy, the commission scale, the work schedule, and also give you some handy product knowledge.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of questions about past work history. Very conversational, otherwise.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Clayton Homes (Maryville, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Initial HR rep call, then call with IT HR rep, phone call with small section of SharePoint group, Caliper test, then in-person interview with group (including supervisor), waited for other interviews. kept waiting for a response from company or recruiter and got neither. recruiter stopped trying after a month. position is no longer listed. Overall interview process was fine. My only issue was spending 3+ months of investing time and never got a single follow up post-interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Clayton Homes in August 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online but the hiring manager knew me as I currently worked at a fitness facility she was a member of. Initially had a lengthy phone interview as my hiring manager loved to talk. After that I had 2 different onsite interviews. 1 with all of my future supervisor superiors and a 2nd with my future coworkers.

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much. It was pretty competitive with other local opportunities plus a generous quarterly bonus.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Clayton Homes in October 2013.

    Interview process was minimal but then I had a Real Estate background so it was understood that I knew sales and home sales in that arena.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Clayton Homes.

    Interview

    Was contacted by an HR rep within two hours. Did a preliminary interview over the phone. Did a second one. Then was emailed a link to perform their psychological assessment (CALIPER.) That took 30 minutes. After passing that, I interviewed with the General Manager. Then interviewed with the Regional Manager. Then took the background and drug screen. To be honest, I thought it was ALOT for a sales position but am glad I did it. Took about 3 weeks total.

    Negotiation

    Wasn't any negotiation. Their pay plan is pretty straight forward. (Production Based)
