    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KB Home (Denver, CO) in February 2008.

    Interview

    First interview was in hotel at hiring conference set up thru recruiter. The interview seemed very informal--more than my other interviews that day. This put me at ease and made the interview go more smoothly. Questions consisted mainly of behavioral questions and questions designed to gauge my interest in the position.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was done through written correspondence. This gave me the opportunity to respond with well thought out questions.
