    Marketing Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at D.R. Horton (Fort Worth, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Don't even bother with this company. If you apply directly, noone from HR will contact you back - NEVER. Their internal recruiters are so bad, they hire multiple 3rd party agencies to help fill roles, but if you are "in their system" you don't qualify to be submitted. Move on and dont waste your time. The added bonus us their pay is not even remotely competitive unless you are used to being underpaid and desperate.

    IT Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Myrtle Beach, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at D.R. Horton (Myrtle Beach, SC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It is a three interview process,the first is the IT Manager, second with City Manager, and last with the Division's CFO. They are very nice and the company has a friendly environment, but their way of not offering jobs is to not email or call the interviewees. This almost cost me an offer with another firm waiting on them. Luckily I was able to accept the offer at the last hour from the other firm.Overall the experience was below average, but It could be worse if the HR personnel was not on the ball. HR was the only one carrying the load when it came down to communicating with the interviewees. When I did talk to management during the interviews, they seem very nice and cared a lot about the company. If the firm improves the interview process a little, it will easily be an above average experience.

    Market Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kirkland, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at D.R. Horton (Kirkland, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on their company website and got a response two days later for a job interview via the phone. The email process was fine; the interviewer was 20 minutes late to the interview that she set the time for, and very abrupt/short/rushed sounding the entire time. I felt I learned a lot about their company and the position, etc., so at least that was good. The company itself sounds like it's great to work for, but maybe not that specific office. The interviewer was clearly interested in me - loved my experience, etc. But then immediately after I told her my salary expectations (which I told her I was open to negotiating depending on the package deal offered as well), she immediately told me that even though I have great experience and a great resume, etc., she was looking to hire someone for substantially less... something to the effect of "you have the right amount of experience but we don't want to pay you as much, so we'd be open to hiring someone more junior so we don't have to pay them." Maybe it was just the way she worded it, but it sounded like she was more interested in the person being in her budget (not that she was paying them fairly or market value for the position that she was hiring for)... especially because she admit that I was asking for a fair amount given my experience level. Overall, it was moderately easy interview process, but the interviewer definitely rubbed me the wrong way. I would not apply to work for them again, at least in that office; sounds like each of the offices are run individually.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at D.R. Horton (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    It was very relaxed and laid back. They asked quite a few construction based questions as well as a lot of questions on my self and my background. The panel was very easy to talk to, only con was that they made it out to seem like they were 100% offering me a position and then I was never contacted back from them.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at D.R. Horton (Atlanta, GA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I didn't get the job but the interview process was very simple. I was told that I wasn't a good fit at this time and was advised to reapply at a later time. I know where I went wrong and may reapply in the future. If you know anything about selling a new home and can describe how you procure and close a sale you should be a good candidate.
