    Pros

    The VHDA mission is as strong as ever. New people to the executive team are bringing non-government ideas. Overall, associates are very invested in the mission and work together to make the biggest impact possible. The wellness program is great. Free parking and the gym are excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Decisions are occasionally made based on personal relationships, not qualifications. The culture is 'we have always been successful, so the way we do it is the right way regardless if there is a better way.'

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to the new hires, both the ones on the executive team and at all levels. Keep hiring people with diverse experiences.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Virginia Housing Development Authority (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    Lengthy and in-depth hiring process. I met several different people from different departments. Although it appeared like a very efficient process, I learned later that it was just a very practiced one. The job requirements for the position I was eventually hired had not been approved by the department head, and changed half way through my job to something I wasn't interested in doing.

    Interview Questions

    • Probably the traditional, "What is your greatest weakness." My answer was, "Kryptonite."   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little negotiation.
