    Good company that has strayed too far from its values

    I worked at Standard Pacific full-time (more than 5 years)


    SPH builds good homes and builds them well. They pay attention to customer preferences and try to stay ahead of the trends.


    Employees are expected to do more and more with fewer resources and less autonomy. Salaries were frozen during the economic downturn and never recovered. When I started with the company, the focus was on the customer. By the time I left, it was all about profit margin. Volatile and disrespectful employees were tolerated as long as they produced the right numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider employee value as equal to shareholder value. Do a salary analysis to ensure the employees are compensated fairly across the organization.

    Construction Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Standard Pacific in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact to hiring manager was through a friend who worked in the office. First interview with Vice President of Construction went fairly well, although two hours long. He even brought in the H.R. manager to go over the benefits package, towards the end of the interview. We left with them saying that as soon as the Background Check comes back, we will give you a call to go over the next step. They said the BC would take about three days, which it did, because I received an email from the BC company three days later.

     After not hearing from them for two more days, I made a follow up call to the VP of Construction and had to leave a message. Two days later he calls back saying my BC came back good and they wanted me to come in for a second interview with the Area President of Construction. That interview did not go so well. He was in a hurry. I could tell he did not want to be there and frankly made me nervous. Needless to say, I did not get the job. The rejection letter came in the mail four weeks later...Great follow up.
