I have been working at Standard Pacific full-time (More than 10 years)
Strong, supportive culture which leads to great teamwork. Standard Pacific's focus has been on the move up buyer and building a better quality home. It shows in overall customer satisfaction. Merger with Ryland homes will create more diversity.
Like any sales position, there is the ongoing pressure of meeting company sales goals. Management works with you though to help meet those goals.
Advice to Management
To maintain supportive, team oriented environment in merger with Ryland Homes. Also, to continue current benefit package and salary structure.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Standard Pacific (Jacksonville, FL) in May 2013.
Initial contact to hiring manager was through a friend who worked in the office. First interview with Vice President of Construction went fairly well, although two hours long. He even brought in the H.R. manager to go over the benefits package, towards the end of the interview. We left with them saying that as soon as the Background Check comes back, we will give you a call to go over the next step. They said the BC would take about three days, which it did, because I received an email from the BC company three days later.
After not hearing from them for two more days, I made a follow up call to the VP of Construction and had to leave a message. Two days later he calls back saying my BC came back good and they wanted me to come in for a second interview with the Area President of Construction. That interview did not go so well. He was in a hurry. I could tell he did not want to be there and frankly made me nervous. Needless to say, I did not get the job. The rejection letter came in the mail four weeks later...Great follow up.
- VP went off of a list of 25 questions, none of them seemed difficult or unexpected. Some just seemed redundant. Answer Question
