    Architectural Drafting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Richmond American Homes in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted and pre-interviewed by a Richmond recruiter for a drafting position. She then passed my resume on to the department that was hiring. After a few days they called me to come in to interview with the department heads. There were 2 of them that I sat down in the interview with. They were pleasant and did not ask any crazy questions. The questions were all related to the position they were filling. One note is the recruiter said the job required some communication with outside contractors, etc., but the department heads said it was basically a strictly drafting position.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Richmond American Homes in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was long but worth it especially in the type of financial and economic state the country is and was in at time of interview. The interviewers were fair, straightforward and asked intelligent questions focusing on past performance and use of skill sets. Once the 1 on 1 interview was reached and satisfactory the process speed up and went quickly. Getting to that point, however, was a slow and without updates.
