    Very rude, seemed uninterested the whole time, argumentative, and were just looking for a reason to not hire me it seemed, maybe they already had someone else in mind. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

I received a call a few days later with an offer, after that it was a background check and drug test. In all it was a very pleasant experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at K. Hovnanian Homes (Matawan, NJ) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by their in-house recruiter about a week after emailing them my resume. The recruiter was very friendly throughout the process and responded promptly after every step. First I had a phone screen with the recruiter, after this I was asked to come in and meet with a few members of the team for an interview. The following week I was asked to come back and interview with two of the department heads. Shortly after that I interviewed with the CIO as well. About a week later I was invited back one more time just to meet with HR and review all of my information and the position itself.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at K. Hovnanian Homes (Matawan, NJ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was asked to provide examples of previous work completed. During the process of the work previously completed being reviewed HR reached out to do a phone interview. I was asked later in the phone interview to visit the Matawan office to take a few skill tests and be interviewed by a board of managers. After about a week of completing the skills test and board interview, I reached out to HR to follow-up on the interview. During this time I got the news I would be receiving the position I applied for and an offer would be sent over to me the following day. Upon receiving the offer I had to complete a background check. The HR team was very intuitive with a great level of communication. The managers I met with for the interview were professional, intellectual and maintained a high level of communication. The interview process wasn't hard but it is very professional.

    Marketing Administrator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at K. Hovnanian Homes (Richfield, OH) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively straight forward and as timely as possible. It started with email communication, followed by a phone screen by a recruiter in NJ. At that point, she scheduled an in person interview, too (so I must have said something right!) with the local marketing manager at their office for the following week. I met the manager who was punctual and straight forward. Gave me some background. She was new to the position (I was interviewing for her former position) and there was also a vacancy in the role above her (regional manager), so the whole department is in transition and I definitely got the sense of frustration from her a little bit, both that she felt that there was a lot of work to manage but also a lot of reshaping to be done. She was super nice, though, and I really felt that I could empathize with what was going on from my own experiences in a shifting department and I was eager to help contribute. She said they were hiring either one or two administrators but that was to be determined after discussing with the local director. I felt that she and I really hit it off and my interview, scheduled for an hour, lasted an hour and a half and she rearranged a phone call to stay talking with me. I was asked to bring a portfolio of collateral, which I did. We talked about my strengths/weaknesses and also how I best work/what type of environment I like to work in. We talked about her vision, the immediate needs that this role needs to fill, and the scope of the department she would like to see down the line. It definitely sounded like she inherited some mess, for lack of better phrasing, that she was really focused on cleaning up. Very organized, very clear on the expectations of the role, etc. and I was told after she discussed with the director they would reach out if selected for a second interview and that they are looking at making a decision by the end of April (which was two weeks from the time of the interview). Ultimately, after reaching out twice (I now realize why there was a delay in getting back to me) to the NJ recruiter, I was told that the marketing director wants the regional position filled first before filling the administrator role(s). I was asked if I wanted to wait out the process which I told I would. I asked for a general timeline/where I stood as an applicant, though, and didn't hear back. I realize those may be hard questions to answer at the time, but would appreciate an acknowledgement as such, especially since I feel we hit it off so well. So my experience with the individuals was good, obviously, but I am a little frustrated by the change in process, but that's how it goes sometimes and I understand the need for it. So for now, I am waiting! Overall good, though.
