    Great company and a great place to work. I worked for Ryland for 33 years before retiring. I miss all the great people I was able to work with!


    The position I filled required to much travel.

    Homebuilding Supervisor III Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


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


    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.
