    Pros

    Training is AMAZING. Management is supportive and has integrity. We make a LOT of money. We have amazing company parties. Sometimes these parties even include huge expensive cash prizes for the sales reps based on their performance. Sales reps can sleep in because offices open at 10am and 11am everyday. Some days are super busy, which nicely fly by. Other days are super quiet, and we use those days to get all our admin work done, meaning we have good balance so we don't get stressed out.

    Cons

    Health benefits aren't great. Sales reps are required to work every Saturday and Sunday, meaning you're unable to spend time with your family on the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    When sales results are low, micromanaging doesn't help. Instead, create a process for improvement by restructuring the sales process in the region itself. Micromanaging simply interrupts our workflow.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KB Home (San Antonio, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Recruitier called, asked a few question, then schedules Personality Test. If you pass, you get a phone interview. If you pass that, then a panel interview(mine was 5 men)

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interview is basic & easy. Panel interview is a bit intimidating: Why do you want to work for KB, Tell me about yourself, How many homes have you sold......   Answer Question
