    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ryan Homes (Tampa, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Filled out initial application online, was contacted next day via email to do a phone interview. Scheduled it online with special credentials given in email to access calendar. Set it up for the following morning. The phone interview lasted a little over 30 minutes and went through a pre-planned agenda of reviewing my resume and then a battery of questions followed with the opportunity to ask questions to the interviewer at the end. Interviewer was very willing to answer questions and share information about the company. I was asked to go to level 2 of the hiring process, which was to fill out section 2 of the online application (only accessible after a successful phone interview) and to do a 2 hour online behavioral test. I just finished those items and am awaiting their response.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Ryan Homes.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely long and grueling. It began with the online application. Then i received an email from hr recruitor about a phone interview. That lasted about 30 minutes. Then i did a long on line assesment that consisted of over 300 behavioral questions, a math portion test, and several more logical tests. That took 2 hours to complete. I then received a call back almost two weeks later , even though i was told that I'd be called back in a week regardless. They set up a three panel interview to meet with managers. Each individual interview lasted almost 1 hour each. The questions were completely behavioral and very redundant. The managers would ask the same questions in different ways. After investing about ten hours of my life to this process. I received a dissapointing email of rejection .Saying that my sales experience didn't fit the experience they were looking for. They didn't even have the professionalism to tell me this over the phone. A complete joke of a process and huge waste of time.

    Interview

    Make sure you can speak to your past accomplishments using percentage of increase in sales from year to year. They wanted details about my salary and how much I grew from year to year. Very pleasant but in depth interview that lasted an hour. First interview was about 15 minutes.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ryan Homes (Pittsburgh, PA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    1st Lengthy phone interview went excellent! Salary, benefits, job requirements, commissions, hours, training possible start date and next step/second interview were discussed. I was really led on..... I was led on to believe I would get a second interview. I received an email (not even a phone call) that they did not plan on moving forward. It was really unprofessional because I was led on to believe would at least get a second interview. My advice to Ryan Homes is to not discuss salary, benefits and next steps until the second interview.... -or- do not post a job opportunity that is not open.....
