    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Meritage Homes in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a referral and interviewed at Meritage Homes. Local management was great and had straight forward questioning. Just wanted to know your qualifications and see if you would fit in on the team. The regional corporate level is where things went south. The interview was more about who you knew as opposed to what you knew. They then lacked follow up and communication.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Meritage Homes.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter for Meritage Homes to gauge my interest in the positions and completed an initial phone screen during the initial call. Later that day I was contacted by someone in the HR department to come in to the San Antonio office that week for an hour long face-to-face interview with the regional VP. About a week after that interview I was contacted again by someone in HR and was asked to drive up to home office in Austin, TX to meet with various people in their finance and accounting departments via an all-day panel interview process. Was contacted a week later by the regional VP and asked to meet for lunch, at which point I was told that they thought I was a good fit for the job and that I would be receiving a job offer but it would take some time for HR to process the offer letter. After not hearing anything for over a month I contacted the recruiter to see if there were any issues, at which point I was told that during the interview process I asked too many "tough questions" that made them feel as though I wasn't confident in the company's future success and that they had decided to interview other candidates.

    Questions such as: "In your view, what effect will rising interest rates have on your company's growth strategy going forward?" or "With new home mortgage applications at a low point versus historical averages, what is your company's approach to attracting new homebuyers to drive revenue?" are apparently not acceptable questions to ask in an interview to be a financial analyst at Meritage Homes.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Meritage Homes in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called about a week later about setting up a phone interview for a job. I went through a first phone interview with a company recruiter a few days later and it went very well, lasted about 20 minutes and he only asked me very basic questions. Set up a second interview in person, and about a week later went to their Houston office to interview with someone in the department of the job I was applying for. The interview was basically the same, it only lasted 20 minutes and he just asked me very basic questions. It seemed that I was a good candidate for the job and he told me his boss would want to speak with me soon because they would make a choice on their candidate within a week. During this interview I was also told the salary for the position was 36-40K, which seemed high to me for a position that didn't require a college degree. (I do have a degree and as a new college grad with 2 yrs. experience, I was just hoping for 36K, so I was happy.) A few days later he did call and we had a phone interview that day, but the interview was again very basic. He said they'd want to speak with me further, but I was never called again as promised. Unfortunately when I emailed the manager to ask him about it, I got a generic email saying they'd filled the position. I wasn't really disappointed at that point due to the lack of communication and the way they shuffled me around to different people to be interviewed, but didn't give me any answers on the process.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Meritage Homes in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was very informal. There was a job posting at my university to which I replied. I spoke at length with the recruitment department, and then had an interview with my area sales manager. We talked about my education, experience in the industry, certifications, etc... I was hired on the spot.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corona, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corona, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Meritage Homes.

    Interview Details

    Went through a initial phone interview with the human resource director. 2 days later, had another phone interview with the department manager. But interviewers were extremely professional, called exactly on the hour the call was scheduled, polite, and asked relevent questions. The questions were about specifics to the job and also about soft skills such as how one would handle a conflict at work. Next step, hopefully I will get there, will be an in-person interview with the department head. Overall, a professional and reliable company.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions. I think this company mostly is concentraiting on core competencies and the potential talent of individuals than specific skills, which is very refreshing.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Meritage Homes in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process was very quick and direct. About 2 weeks after I applied for the job, I was contacted by the corporate recruiter to schedule a phone interview. A few days after that I had a phone interview with he corporate recruiter. I was almost immediately scheduled for an in person interview with the hiring managers. After about a week I was offered the position. The process was very easy and straight forward.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewers did not play mind games, they simply asked questions that pertained to the job. I was asked alot of situational questions like "What would you do in this situation." The questions all were job related and since I had experience in the position already, they were not difficult to answer. I definitly could not have faked my way through the interview though. The questions were very specific to the job and to the local market. There would have been no way to fake the answers and be successful in the interview. I really had to know what I was talking about.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was made an offer via email. I called the recruiter and countered once. The hiring managers accepted and I accepted the offer the same day.
