    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Franklin, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NVR (Franklin, TN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    There was an online application which after submitted and reviewed, I was sent a link for a personality test and a form for additional information. A few days later there were two phone interviews which was with an individual who did not work in the local office, I believe with HR in their corporate office. After that they scheduled an in person "round robin" interview with people in many positions in the company.

    Applications Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reston, VA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NVR (Reston, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Had to take 270 question personality test from home, then a timed, seven part logical reasoning test. In both cases, there were many trick questions that kind of weren't fair. The in-person interview was four hours of 30 minute one-on-one interviews without a break, up to seven people total. I ended up explaining the same thing 2-3 different times and began losing my voice by the end. I was given a surprise technical quiz on paper (10 questions) and later a verbal technical quiz. The experience was draining, almost cruel, and ruined me for the rest of the day. Not worth it.

    Interview Questions

    • Almost all technical questions were about OOP principals that don't really come up in the day-to-day work and are background theory, like "What is SOLID?" You will only pass if you happen to remember the definitions of terms you never think about.   Answer Question
    • What's the difference between a reference and value type?   Answer Question
    • What are the keywords for reference and value types?   Answer Question
    • Identify which of these variables are reference or value types: string, int, decimal, date   1 Answer
    • X = 1. Y = 2. Switch the value between these variables without using another variable.   2 Answers

    Capital Markets Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NVR in October 2017.

    Interview

    Had multiple recruiters contact me about applying at NVR. After about the 5th time I decided I would get it a try.
    Initial phone interview with the was very basic and easy. Tried hard to push me towards the loan officer job, but that was not the one I was interested in. Sent me a link to a questionnaire that took about 30-45 minutes to complete. You will need a calculator for it, or you will not do well on the math section.

    After the questionnaire I never heard back from NVR. Even after emailing the recruiter. Wasn't really upset about it since I wasn't completely sold on working there, but a little professional courtesy is always appreciated.

    Initial communications were through HR department and a personality test was given online, then had a phone interview scheduled. Met with 3 manager for over 2 hours.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at NVR (Reston, VA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Process was not difficult, seemed more like a feeling out process as I had more experience than the position required. Seemed to be a position not fitted for someone looking for advancement.
