I have been working at CastleRock Communities full-time (More than a year)
The owners are actively involved and the company encourages that you grow professionally. Each quarter, you're given the opportunity to do a book report from the companies library and every book available provides valuable information to grow personally and professionally - you even get paid! If you meet the goals given, you're taken on a free vacation. Competitive, great pay, great bonus program and privately owned company.
It can be stressful at times, but the rewards are far greater. If considering a career with CastleRock, stay organized!
Advice to Management
I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CastleRock Communities (Houston, TX) in November 2017.
I applied on a Thursday, got a call the next day, & had interview scheduled for Monday. Interview was at one of the model homes with the Sr. Construction Manager & the Project Manager. They were both extremely nice and very informative. They gave me a good amount of detail about the company and the position. My initial impression was excellent!
I was notified the very next day that they wanted me to join the team and I would be getting an offer letter by email later in the day. The offer letter came a few hours later...
The offer was slightly lower than I had expected (based upon the Glassdoor average for this area) so I tried to negotiate an increase. They held firm at their initial offer, but did offer to review again after 4-6 months.
I accepted, completed drug screening on Friday (which I had to pay for...they’ll reimburse after 90 days of employment) and should be starting within the next week.
Extremely smooth process!
