    Pros

    A reasonably relaxed work environment a freight job. There are several perks beyond the strict pay structure. Over all they tend to promote a culture of family and success.

    Cons

    Hours don't match what is typical for the industry (they advocate longer hours), while they preach having time for friends and family and the importance having time off.

    Advice to Management

    To keep the best and brightest, you need to pay them.


  2. Horrible Company to work for.

    Pros

    There are no pro's for this company.

    Cons

    If you want to make a decent living definitely avoid Clayton Homes. Long hours, corporate bs to deal with on a daily basis. The pay is terrible, 2 holidays a year off. Take my advice, stay away from them at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Quit screwing with sales people's pay based on screw ups from the service dept.

    Pros

    Not only does the company invest in their employers, they have a great wellness department and gym, basketball and volleyball, a great greenway jogging trail, and healthy greenway cafeteria!. They manage to maintain outstanding sales and has great backing as a Berkshire Hathaway company.

    Cons

    Need new positions and more innovative employees to help lead the wonderful talent they have. Quicker growth opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in current employers and create new roles that are essential within a company of their size. Would suggest looking at how similar businesses are structured.

    Pros

    Company and manager are very family oriented and therefor flexible with scheduling when a family emergency or event comes up. Pay structure is nice, salary plus commission. They are closed major Holidays which shows they care about their employees.

    Cons

    Still retail and sometimes includes working longer hours and some holidays. A lot of time and work invested before you see commission on a sale.

    Pros

    Lots of open positions lots of people and opportunity.

    Cons

    Started as a temp working customer service..very unfriendly staff. Do NOT work temp here. I then asked them if there is a high turnover because I know they lose everyone and they said..no just apply. I applied and they said that I had possible negativity. Is negativity asking why they have so much turnover in order to save myself a job when im looking for a career opportunity? i just wanted to work for the right company. I can't believe HR told me this when i worked for them. I am the most positive person on earth. Wrong judgement. I would never work for you if you hired me right now despite my previous interview process. HR, you are the reason that the company is negative. You can't tell someone that. Create the atmosphere you want. YOUR Loss. I'm a college graduate , top of my class, and worked in customer service for a very long time. Everyone knows im a positive person. It's not my fault you are horribly managed--and I'm taking the blame for that. Ive never had someone say that to me ever and I'm so insulted.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to stop being dramatic. If you want hard workers higher them. People are going to ask you about your reputation and if you are not going to hire someone because they are curious about working there, then it's too bad you have a worse reputation than you had before. I don't have anything to prove, my credentials speak enough. Where as you do. Prove to me that you are worth working for, or I go.I can't believe that's how you operate. You all need some positive HR people because i will never EVER recommend this to a friend and I HAVE gotten interviews and turned them down because my recommendation got let go the same day. Who would want to work for such people? Not me. Good luck finding a college graduate like me who is very skilled, professional, positive, and a go getter.


  9. Overall a pretty good company to work for although they need to focus more on their employees

    Pros

    A reasonably relaxed work environment for a sales job. There are several perks beyond strict $$ compensation. Over all they tend to promote a culture of family and success. You are selling a product that truly is top notch and the company always puts customers first ALWAYS.

    Cons

    Hours don't match what is typical for the industry (as they are much longer), although they preach family being important its hard to take time off, compensation is extremely low when compared to the independents in this industry.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement as General managers are quitting everyday, even from profitable stores

    Cons

    New financial regulations have made it difficult fro people to buy. 20% down, 12% interest rates, bad terms and conditions. Bad reputation for supporting managers that were crooks, if they were giving a bottom line to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get REAL! You have totally lost touch with what is going on at the MHC level.
