    Pros

    Great support, good training, "do the right thing" culture. Was given good training when I started and ongoing as needed. Always had supportive bosses and others who had influence on my tasks. They let me do my work but were available and always willing to give advice, discuss options, and work out solutions if needed. They were not afraid to spend some money if it meant doing the right thing, unlike many others builders. Customer focused more than dollar driven. Had great people when I was there and morale was higo, a family feel. This changed a little before I left but was still a great atmosphere. Very good benefits with an emphasis on health care.

    Cons

    At the time I was there the advancement opportunities were limited and pay was not as much as I hoped for. Although I was offered a promotion to stay, the pay was still short of my new opportunity. Some important tasks were not priorities to all which impacted my work, making it frustrating at times. I guess this is true everywhere to some extent.

    Advice to Management

    Share long range plans with everyone. Better forecasting is necessary to ensure stability and positive outlook of employees.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at K. Hovnanian Homes (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    The District sales manager called me first to see if I may be interested in switching builders/employers. Then a Recruiter contacted me, I completed a Phone interview first, then completed an online questionnaire and sent in my resume. I then had an in person interview with District sales manager off site, then in person with the Division President at the corporate office. Overall a very easy transition, I was made to feel very valued and appreciated.

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a start date that was most beneficial for me. I hadn't attempted to negotiate the intaitial draw and payback period, but in hindsight I would recommend exercising your negotiation skills and see if you can get any amount of time paid without having to pay back completely.
