    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KB Home (Denver, CO) in February 2008.

    Interview

    First interview was in hotel at hiring conference set up thru recruiter. The interview seemed very informal--more than my other interviews that day. This put me at ease and made the interview go more smoothly. Questions consisted mainly of behavioral questions and questions designed to gauge my interest in the position.

    Interview

    Initial written assessment to determine management style and minor organizational skills. Pretty straightforward responses and some problem solving required but not anything confusing or tricky. Followed by face to face interview and phone interview. Sounds like a great company to serve.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interviewer told me that he usually only hires from BYU and BYU-Idaho (so apparently it hurt me that I went to a much higher regarded school). He also talked about his Mormon mission. He then noted that I went to a catholic junior high school, and asked if I was Catholic. I answered yes. I didn’t get the job.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KB Home (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2007.

    Interview

    I was called by the staffing agency, who set up an appointment with me for the very next day. I arrived and was asked to fill out a physical application, and escorted to the testing room where I was given a personality test, and skills test. Then I was interviewed by the recruiter, who then passed me to the executive who needed an assistant. They needed to fill the position immediately, so they made a decision right there. It was good not to have to wait around for days. I started the following week.

    Senior Customer Service Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at KB Home (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call from an outsourced recruiter. Did a quick resume review/job description and scheduled an onsite assessment. The assessment took about 45 minutes in their office and consisted of reading (ie critical thinking) and math questions. The recruiter had prepped me for the type of questions. I felt it was tougher than other pre-employment assessments I've taken and left questioning if I had passed.
    The recruiter called me 1 day later and told me I had passed and then scheduled a phone interview. The phone interview was star type questions and then she told me she would call me to schedule an 1:1 on-site. I was set up for a few days after the phone interview.
    The hiring manager was friendly and his questions were pretty standard about scheduling and abilities. He mentioned the position was slightly different than what I had applied for so I asked him if he thought I would be a good fit and he said very positively that I would. I got a canned rejection letter 2 days later. I emailed the recruiter and asked for feedback. I never received a reply.

    Land Acquisition Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KB Home (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter who was almost surprised at how well my credentials fit the position. I had a quick phone interview, followed by an on-site assessment, and a follow up interview. We scheduled a time for my in person interview. I get a call mere hours before that they need to cancel because the person who I need to meet with has the flu. At this point it has already been a good three weeks since I was originally contacted. I eventually had my interview, which I thought went very well. Was called by the recruiter saying I did not get offered a position. Later that night I sent a follow up e-mail thanking her for reaching out and the opportunity to interview. No response.

    Interview Questions

    • General background questions on experience, pretty straight forward, nothing designed to trip you up or make the experience completely uncomfortable.   Answer Question

    You will have at least 2-3 interviews to get your position, the first was with the VP of sales and the second was with a regional sales manager. Both interviews were pretty easy going and if you can hold a conversation you should be fine. All in all it was a pretty standard process though. M
