    Sales and Marketing Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews. Don't seem to really care about what you have to say. HR seemed emotionless and boring. I certainly hope the phone interviewers aren't or haven't done any selling!

    They have no idea what they are doing. They hire kids with no degrees with very little sales experience yet don't hire a seasoned salesman with consistent quota hitting history. Huge joke. They will suffer in sales.

    Production Supervisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NVR.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume and several months later I was contacted for a phone interview. After the phone interview I moved on to the in-person interview. In this interview you are asked behavioral based questions. Do your homework ahead of this interview to make sure you have answers for any potential question asked. However, it is very difficult to anticipate all of the questions you might be asked; you are going to be caught off guard at some point.

    Sales and Marketing Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at NVR in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was certainly an undertaking, but it was very thorough and professional from start to finish.

    Initially I received a phone call from the HR Dept and went through the phone interview process (spent about an hour on the phone). This interview consisted mainly of background questions followed by a brief series of behavior interview scenarios (i.e. Name an instance when you faced conflict and how you overcame it, etc.).

    Following the interview I was asked to take a personality/behavioral test online and this took about an hour as well. It was just your typical behavioral questionairre.

    After the initial phone interview and online test I was asked to come back for an in person interview. This was made up of a panel of interviewers (2 sales mgrs and one district mgr) and was more in depth with the behavioral inerview questions. Be prepared with some quality scenarios in mind before stepping into the interview. This panel interview took most of the morning to meet with all three panel members.

    Lastly I was asked to meet with the regional VP of sales and she was a tough interviewer but things went well and finally they called to make me an offer.

    Mortgage Loan Officer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at NVR in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were through HR department and a personality test was given online, then had a phone interview scheduled. Met with 3 manager for over 2 hours. Each interviewer had a different technique and they asked progressively harder questions. The process was very long and answering the same question being asked 3 different ways was frustrating after 2 hours.

    Loan Processor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NVR in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    This interview process was set up through the Aeroek staffing agency for NVR in Columbia, MD. Interview consisted of being asked personality questions suggested by a program after a personality test. The questions are catered to find more on personality traits that may be a hindrance post-hire. Each series of questions are asked one on one with several individuals over an hour or so.

    This went very well, however, if you don't meet their 3.0 GPA requirement then you will not be offered a job. Even though zero publications list this as a requirement and the fact the staffing agency knew nothing of this, NVR decided to implement a 3.0 or higher policy 2 weeks into my interview process. In sort, to even be considered for the job you must posses a 3.0 despite work history. Unfortunately, my 2.8 did make the cut and I wasn't offered the position.

    Interview Details

    Took a long time to hear back, never heard back from my recruiter after asking for a location transfer, very intense and fast paced. It seemed like a high stress environment as many of the managers sounded stressed out and like they were undergoing a lot of changes. They said there wasn't a lot of consistency among the company- which deterred me
