    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at KB Home (Houston, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Started out with a very sweet and professional recruiter calling for a phone interview. I then, went to their central office and took an aptitude test. Once I passed that, I had to do another phone interview, and then they set me up with an interview with the person who would be the manager of who they were hiring. I drove to the location and was sent home because the person stepped into a meeting even though the planned my interview days in advance. Drove home, (it is a 30 minute drive each way), recruiter called and told me to go back. I get all the way back there and was told to go home again. The recruiter couldn't have been more apologetic. The only thing was, once I finally got to interview with the manager, he wasn't friendly, didn't appear to even want to listen and or ask questions, and never once apologized for not being professional and being there on our planned schedule.
