Good place with decent opportunity

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at D.R. Horton full-time for less than a year

ProsThe product a sales rep is asked to market is first rate for the pricepoint. Awesome buildingmanagers for each community, and a management team that listens and looks before they leap into a community

ConsAs with most builders, the commission only stricture. Need to find a way to pay trips salary plus bonus, or, at least continue to pay a draw against commission earned.
Benefits reasonable, but could be better.

Advice to Senior ManagementRevamp compensation package, otherwise, this of a great place to work

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Big Company with Big Company Attitude Toward Employees

Sales Consultant (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at D.R. Horton

ProsHorton sells homes in all major areas in the surrounding areas of Houston. Good floorplans and homes are well built.

ConsHorton is known for major shakeups every few years. Division President and Vice President as well as several heads of departments were let go as well as changing commission structure and days off allowed (down to one a week).

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees with more respect - not just lip service from Corporate Manager. Find ways to improve morale, not ridicule people.

Pays good but top heavy

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at D.R. Horton

ProsGood pay. Bonuses are good when economy is good.

ConsWho you are sleeping with can help save your job. Typical corporate America. The fat should be trimmed at the top but it starts at the bottom during hard times.

Advice to Senior ManagementRetain employees that work hard and deserve a job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

An okay place to work for the most part.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I have been working at D.R. Horton

ProsFairly well compensated for what was otherwise a pretty easy job. 8-5 workdays. Standard benefits.

ConsExecutive management makes stupid and un-iformed decisions. There are no rewards/ incentives for working hard. However, if you suck up to the right people you might go somewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open to employees ideas. Reward those who work hard.

It comes down to the community

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at D.R. Horton

ProsSchedule is somewhat flexible, good benefits package and commission. Company is buying communities so you will have a product to sell for some time to come.

ConsMay vary by region or city but they are going about acquiring communities in reverse. They buy the land then set a price for the community based on a profit margin despite what homes in the area are selling for. Lack of creative thoughts or ideas and being profitable is more important than anything. Yet if the model looks bad you'll scramble to fix it and waste money at the last minute. It all comes down to the community you get, if it is priced correctly in a desirable locale you can be sucessful. Otherwise good luck.

Advice to Senior ManagementBuy new properties based on the home prices in the area. If your 20k over priced because of land cost and local realtors are telling you that LISTEN! If your top agents are so good put them in struggling communities and reward them if they can turn them around. Don't force new talent into financial holes because management made a bad purchase.
