    I worked at KB Home full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    KB Home prides itself on its brand and general employee morale. I enjoyed my time at KB and would likely still be there if construction hadn't come to a grinding halt.

    Cons

    Management above the local division level did not care to understand the specific local issues confronting our division. They assumed that due to their company's size they could dictate timelines to local municipalities. It created a slight cognitive dissonance for the rank and file employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the great atmosphere, but listen to the local division mangement.

    Receptionist/Operations Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at KB Home.

    Interview Details

    After applying for the position I started talking with a recruiter who set me up with an assessment test at the KB Home location. Upon passing the assessment test I completed a phone interview with the recruiter then had a face to face interview with the VP of Operations. After the face to face interview I met with 3 other people to make sure that I would mesh well with the company. Everyone is extremely nice and personable. The interviews are pretty generic without many tough questions.
