    I have been working at The Ryland Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work. Always changing, never a dull moment. People in this industry love helping make a future home for people of all ages. Ryland is no different.

    Cons

    Long hours which is typical for the industry. Very political, and you only get promoted if you know someone and wear pants. Many construction companies are still a mans world. Again, Ryland is no different. Higher up mgmt needs to get out of the box. There is more than "Ryland's" way to do things.

    Advice to Management

    Read Cons above. It's a real shame that a few bad apples can bring an organization down. Ryland's heart is in the right place.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at The Ryland Group (Houston, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the area VP. The first interview was with him and after the interview I took the personality and IQ tests. The second interview was going to be with the area manager that I would be working for but he was not available so a different area manager interviewed me. The third interview was with the area manager that I would be working for, all of the interviews were the same routine. I will say that I never felt very welcome, all of the people I interviewed with were rather cold. Also, I requested a copy of the benefits package multiple times but it was never provided to me. I did get an offer but have yet to accepted it because I have another offer from a different home builder.
