    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New Home Star in January 2017.

    Interview

    Strange. Had phone interview and was supposed to hear from Director for regular interview. No follow up from company even after I called them again. They did not even answer the phone at headquarters. Director never called even after human resources said expect to hear from them for the next interview. Weird. Are they going out of business?

    The interview process was thorough but a quick process. It started with a phone interview which lasted about 10 minutes. After that, they set up a face to face interview with the Sales Manager. That interview took about a half hour. Finally, I met with the builder partner and then was offered a position shortly there after. The whole process was about a 10 days.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, SC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New Home Star (Greenville, SC) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Things you need to know about this company. It's 100% commission based. You will be driving very very far to get to your neighborhood of sales. You can not sell real estate without a license, so I suspect you have to obtain one, or you will be splitting commission with someone who has one. You will likely be going weeks or evens a month without a paycheck. This job is not good for someone with a family, or who has bills to pay.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Geneva, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at New Home Star (Geneva, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Found Ad in Indeed.com. Initial phone call was about 45 minutes. Agreed to meet at neutral location and spent about 2 hours taking.
    1:1 interview was mostly small talk. From there, we went into a small group interview, and questions got tougher by the client - which was welcomed.
    Personality assessment was assigned afterwards via email -- but somehow I was sent the answer key, not the questionnaire. When I called *and* emailed them to let them know they sent me the key, I was told to "just do the best you can"... so I re-read the answer key, copied the answers and sent them right back as a completed task. It didn't feel right, but I did make the effort to let them know in the first place.
    My offer came less than 48hrs after that.

    New Home Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at New Home Star (Orlando, FL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    There were a few phone calls prior to a face to face meeting. The calls were to acknowledge receipt of my information, test my knowledge, and get an idea of how I "handled" myself over the phone. There were two face to face interviews. After the first interview I was asked to read a book about new home sales and to call the manager back, which I did. Shortly after the second face to face interview I was offered a job as a trainee, with plans on becoming a full time sales consultant. I dealt directly with the home office to process paper work and a lot of the communication was done online.

    Interview Questions

    • What was the last new home sales book you have read in the last 6 months?   1 Answer
    • I was asked to role play as a new home consultant and the interviewer pretended to by a potential buyer. It was like the twilight zone. Picture if you will, a man entering your model home, dressed in a particular way, asking these 5 questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Non negotiable, this is what we are offering, but here are the compensation possibilities. In addition, if successful and the desire was to be in management, that possibility existed.
