    Pros

    Fieldstone was very family-oriented. Executive management knew everyone's names and even personal life, which you rarely get in any companies. They will stop you down the hallway just to ask how you are doing. You get a good feeling when you go to work because you have a lot of friends there. The company knew how to treat their employees in terms of company events and perks. It was one of the best companies I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    My supervisor did not show any heart or gave any recognition throughout the 3 years I worked for her. Even up until the week I left she did not notify the company I was leaving, which I think was a big deal seeing I do the company's payroll. She had no trust in what I did, which was odd seeing all the emails I received when I emailed the company myself saying I was leaving. Even co-workers out of state who I rarely see begged the HR department to try and keep me just so they wouldn't work with my supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees fairly and get to know them. They deserve praise and recognition when it's due.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fieldstone Communities (San Antonio, TX) in December 2008.

    Interview

    My initial contact with the company was a phone interview with the HR Director in CA. I had gotten information from the external recruiter about the company and the person I would be talking to. I didn't know much about the industry, so did a bit of research ahead of time. The interviewer was very thorough and I was very candid about my past experiences. Paid off because she appreciated me sharing more than most candidates had before. Got me to the next step in the process.
