    Working in one of the businesses inhaled by K. Hov back in the early 2000s. The business had a strong competitive advantage based on a solid business model. It also had a strong commitment to efficiency, value, and customer service. Working for this business (now a division of K. Hov) feels like working for Apple when Jobs left the first time. The new management? Gum on the bottom of Steve Jobs' shoe.


    K. Hov's handling of this fine little jewel of a company has been absolute dog crap. They carved up the company like a christmas turkey with no consideration of the core business model, destroying theur competitive advantage. An underlying indolence pervades K. Hov national management. Accountability suffers, and mid-level cost center managers get away with murder, because they can.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the companies bought in the early 2000 buying spree. K. Hov is cash poor and owes a ton to creditors. Time to stop living a self-delusion that K. Hov can operate outside of the its core business. Attempting to be a master of the universe is an expensive hobby. Sell the little guys. You will be doing them a favor. They were better off without you.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bluffton, SC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at K. Hovnanian Homes (Bluffton, SC) in August 2015.


    Phone Interview, fairly lengthy, but went well and wasn't stressful. Lady was at a distant office, but was very down to earth and personable. After talking for 30-45 minutes, she sent me an email to fill out a few more things and was going to try to get an in person interview set up with the area manager.
