    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lennar (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The day after I applied I got a call from the Division President and we did a quick phone interview for about 15 minutes. I then interviewed in person in a coffee shop and was offered the position on the spot. It should have been a red flag to me that they have a hard time keeping good people because of their poor business model and awful customer service.

    Interview Questions

    • Not a question, but a comment from the person I interviewed with. "I'd like to hire you today." This was after only meeting for less than 30 minutes.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked for more money, they turned me down. I stuck to my demands and they ultimately gave me what I wanted but turned the extra I was asking for into a monthly bonus instead of on my salary.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lennar (Miami, FL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Found out about this job through a recruiter and they set up and initial phone screening with the Director of Audit and the Audit Manager. After making it through the phone screening I was asked to come in for a face to face interview. The Director of Audit grabbed me from reception and took me straight to the Audit Manager's office where the first thing she did was hand me a piece of paper with three short answer questions relating to Audit/Accounting. After finishing my first short essay exam since I finished grad school, we stepped into the manager's office and began going over my resume. She warned me that she would also be asking me accounting specific questions from her list of random accounting questions she had on her desk. After she was done with me it was time to speak to the Director of Audit. The Director of Audit just sold the position and wanted to know if I had any questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Here are the short answer questions I was told to answer at the beginning of my interview:

      1. You are testing the balance of a liability account and you discover that a journal entry is not supported. How would you write this audit finding?

      2. Bob is a controller and has the ability to do the following: Create/modify vendors, approve invoices, create and approve journal entries. What are the segregation of duties issues here?

      3. How would you test revenue was recorded in the correct period? What is this type of test called?

      Questions I was asked from the random list of accounting concepts the manager had on her desk:

      1. What is the difference between a process and a control?

      2. What is the journal entry for an insurance payment?

      3. What are some testing procedures you would use to test for unrecorded liabilities?   1 Answer
