    New Home Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at KB Home (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was recruited by their own company and it was a very quick process. The recruiter interviews you and asks you questions. If they like you, they set up a time to visit a corporate location and take a 60 question skills test. If you pass the recruiter calls you for a recap and a short interview. From there they relay the information to management and see if they would like to do a panel interview. That's as far as I got.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of example questions about sales techniques and situation/open ended things.   Answer Question

    Interview Questions

    • I really connected with recruiter and loved the hiring manager, but went for "final stamp of approval" with director and that was it. His interviewer skills were terrible and uncomfortable to sit through. After all the successful interviews, I was going against his personal bias and was not reviewed accurately based on my capabilities.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KB Home.

    Interview

    First a one on one conversation with an excellent recruiter was held. She said they Vet all of the applicants and only the very best get past her. Then she called to set up the next interview. Upon arrival for that interview I found there were several potential new hires were bought in at the same time, without being told it was a group interview. There were more "qualified" candidates than places to sit. After a group interview and test, each candidate was called in for a round table interview with the sales director and two sales managers. Then finally an interview with the Area VP.

    Interview Questions

    • His first words to me before I said anything at all were "When a sales person tells me it sells itself I know they don't know what they're talking about, so tell me really, how do you plan to sell my houses?"   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at KB Home.

    Interview

    After applying for the position I started talking with a recruiter who set me up with an assessment test at the KB Home location. Upon passing the assessment test I completed a phone interview with the recruiter then had a face to face interview with the VP of Operations. After the face to face interview I met with 3 other people to make sure that I would mesh well with the company. Everyone is extremely nice and personable. The interviews are pretty generic without many tough questions.
