    The current team is small - 2 people in upper management. I interviewed with the Tax Director and Financial Controller. I believe the tax practice is not looking for growth in numbers as much as its trying to plan its succession.

    Absolutely terrible follow up... Unclear on exact intentions. I had to persist with follow up and never received final answer regarding position over 30 days after actual interview.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Richmond American Homes (Las Vegas, NV) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received subsequent phone call from a recruiter. It was a phone interview,,,relatively boiler plate..The interviewer turnout to be feckless and no help in getting to a real decision maker. Maybe the times have changed and 3rd year recruiters now make hiring decisions on top level sells people. It is extremely frustrating to put your career in the hands of a novice who has never sold a egg biscuit.

    Interview

    Recruiter called and went over the general job information; pay, benefits and schedule. Attempted to set up an interview with the Sales Manager for the next day, that fell through and didn't hear from them for a week. Very fast paced call with the manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Richmond American Homes (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter 1 week after I submitted application. Brief phone interview about my experience and why I want to work for Richmond. Went to corporate for a "group" interview with 8 candidates. Filled out a questionnaire and had to sell a product with a partner, that's it. Took a personality assessment the next day and received an email a week later saying they went ahead with someone else. Wasn't very personal and seemed rushed, like they didn't care.

    General Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Richmond American Homes (Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO).

    Interview

    I received a call from someone in HR who knew very little about the position. She said "the team will better answer" to the simplest of questions. Phone call took about 20 minutes. I then received a call to interview in person that week. The day of I got a short email saying my interviewer had to push back the meeting. Since I work I can't always check my phone, a phone call/voice message would have been the best way to notify someone of this. I went in for the interview with 2 managers and was surprised when there were 4 people sitting in the room. Had I known it was a panel interview I would have prepared more, and more questions for all to answer. The interview was very short, 40 minutes long. With irrelevant questions. I got the hint that they hadn't interviewed candidates before. With no system to questions, they kept interrupting each other. All but 1 interviewer seemed disinterested. It was difficult to stay energized when the vibe in the room was dull and all 3 interviewers looked bored and distant. It has been 4 weeks and no one has answered my follow up emails. The position title is much better than the actual job. The actual job is a glorified admin assistant who travels to all their properties, doing the grunt work of a few teams. After the unprofessional ways of the interview process I feel a little relieved that I dodged a bullet. High turnover in any company is a bad sign.
