    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at K. Hovnanian Homes in July 2017.

    Interview

    First, the recruiter called me on the wrong day. She realized this and said in her voicemail that she would call me the following day, which was our scheduled day. She missed the correct appointment, then asked that we reschedule. She proceeded to miss THREE more appointments! When I finally flagged her down and we spoke, she was describing a job that was different than which I had applied. I decided to give it a shot anyway; we discussed when I would come in to interview and she said she would follow up with an assessment (am I the only person who hates these?). She never sent it and I never heard from her again!

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at K. Hovnanian Homes (Red Bank, NJ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    My first contact was a phone interview which lasted approximately 45 minutes. It consisted of all the typical interview questions i.e. what is your greatest strength and weakness (really??). This appeared to go smoothly although most of the questions were rather canned. The next step was a battery of psychological, background, and skill tests. This testing took upwards of six hours to complete. I can only hope they were selective to whom they sent this battery...because it was time consuming and although I was extremely experienced with the software the tests were not user friendly. I then had been told I would receive a call Monday of the following week. I never heard from them. Not even the courtesy of a return phone call to my inquiry. This is not a very professional organization. A week letter, I received a form email. I was warned by a previous employee about their corporate ethos. I should have listened and not wasted my time.

    Interview Questions

    • A very telling question..."How would you handle an angry homeowner?" I guess really it depend on why they were angry....I can only imagine.   Answer Question
