Advice to Management
Great program keep doing what you're doing it really gives us an advantage in interviews to have a little bit more research and background information to make a better decision.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lennar (New York, NY).
The first 2 interviews were awesome, the first two managers were amazing and it really hyped up my excitement at the thought of the potential opportunity.
On 3rd interview, showing up 15 minutes early, I was told the executive I’d be meeting with was running behind and they’d be with me “shortly”. I was left sitting In the lobby for for over an hour and half. I understand schedules fall behind, but this was also rescheduled 3 times. When I was finally moved to his office, I was left there alone for another 25 minutes. The gentleman passed the office several times within that time frame, laughing with another man and casually strolling.
Once he finally decided he had time for the interview, we chatted for about 30 mins before he asked me to move to the conference room where I’d present the deck I had put together to the rest of the team. Once there, he said the other team members were “in another meeting” and asked if I had 15 minutes to wait. I waited for nearly another 45 minutes before they joined. (Mind you, when I walked by the managers office who was “in another meeting”, she and her assistant were standing, giggling and eating m&m’s). Her door remained opened, which I could see into while waiting. No meetings happening. I presented then we parted ways. They followed up requesting MORE examples of work. I politely declined. While I’m sure they’re a great company to work for (most executives I met with were there for decades), i was uncomfortable with the level of professionalism held through the final interview; leaving a potential employee waiting for hours is extremely disrespectful and shows that you little respect/value the prospects time. But I’m sure they’re a great company! And I bet the right person would love to work there. I prefer a mutually respectful relationship when taking a position.
I’d also like to add- they made a point of saying that this particular position required being in the office before 8am and most days not leaving until after 7pm. The position is 100% digital- meaning it can always be done remotely and they’re aware of that fact. While I understand and love being in the office for a full 40 hours, expecting more than that for a job which can be done regardless being in the office/home- they showed they provide little work/family balance. Other employers for the same position/salary- recognize this jobs ability to be done anywhere and respect that as long as your jobs done, working 12+ hours a day isn’t justifiable.
