"I worked with KHOV for over a year and a half as a Community Construction Manager in an very busy 55+ active adult community. Coming from having spent the previous five years with Lennar Homes, I was afforded an intimate glimpse at the differences between two of the country’s largest production home builders. While there were many similarities, there were also glaring differences. As a results of these experiences, I have developed the knowledge and skill sets necessary to confidently and consistently manage a ground up build from permitting to delivery, consistently, on time and on task."

"K. Hovnanian Homes--a great place to crush your soul."

What do you like about working at K. Hovnanian Homes?

"Well, prior to being laid off after 5 years of tenure, I certainly LOVED the grueling 60-70 hour work weeks, massive amounts of red tape, and the total lack of managerial comprehension with regard to what was done in the field. Other than that, it was business as usual...just like working at any other production builder."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"When the housing market recovers in 3-5 years and hiring begins again, best of luck to those who would seek a job in the trenches again."

What don't you like about working at K. Hovnanian Homes?

"The mantra that Our greatest resource is our Associates. What a corporations really expect us to drink the Kool-Aid"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Get a clue. The housing meltdown is attributable to a failure in corporate leadership at the highest levels. Greed, pure and simple, is the driving force behind any publicly traded company. Smart business choices and well-thought strategies for growth were all too commonly discarded for short-term decisions that would provide a temporary bump in the stock price."
