    Great Corporate culture

    Community Manager (Current Employee) Dinuba, CA

    ProsThey are industry experts in home building. I learned so much.

    ConsBusiness model stretches out management, it is hard to manage construction off site

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't take middle managements word as scripture. Get out to each site regularly and unannounced.

    Depends on where you live...

    Sales Consultant (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsWorking as a sales consultant in Houston,TX was a wonderful experience. The market in Texas is steady, Texans are laid back so it was not stressful, and the managers apreciated the work we did. Of course, every manager is differet... My day as a sales cosultant started around 10am usually. Four to five hours in the model home could be spent napping given the number of people that come in on a weekday morning. I usually spent this time doing reports, follow-ups, marketing busy-work, or gossiping on the phone. When clients came in, put on your game face and sell! The only issue with this job is working Sundays until 6pm. I think work/life balance in the US is a joke period and this industry is a great example of that. However, the pay was great and the stress was low. A wonderful place to work if you do not have young children. Pros:
    Beautiful environment
    Great pay
    Lots of vacation time

    ConsThere is really no chance of upward moility for sales people. Most make their money and move on, very few ever get to management or corporate positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate that everyone has a family! It is a waste of money and bad business to keep sales people in an empty office on Sunday night.

    Great place to work

    Sales Professional (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsK. Hovnanian cares about employees; has a great perspective on work/life balance, and has opportunities to advance. Each division is independent enough that you can rise to your greatest level of competence.

    ConsThe real estate industry is tough, so if you are looking for a place to make a boat load of money, your timing might be off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it a meritocracy. People were promoted based on their performance and that's the best way to do it. Kept everyone motivated.

    Highly motivated company!

    Sales Consultant (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsKHOV is very organized internally. They are highly motivated to sell homes, while not losing focus of customer satisfaction and quality. KHOV has one of the strongest construction teams I have ever been a part of.

    ConsKHOV is a bit rigid when it comes to its employee organization. You are not allowed to directly contact anyone that is not your direct supervisor. They also do not promote independent thinking. Every decision has to go through a chain of command.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are pursuing a sales career with KHOV, I encourage you to negotiate your terms of employment.

    Great Company, many great people and opportunities to advance

    Community Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsStrong group of people, challenging work and opportunity for advancement

    ConsThe current economic situation has caused the company to severely cut-back and I see very limited opportunities for the near future.

    management

    Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee)

    ProsI think that some of their management staff were some of the most respected managers in the business today, they are caring and understanding. They would encourage you to keep up the good work, but as you know anywhere you work you some good and some bad things that can happen. Their overall score for the company is very high.

    ConsThe downside is that they tend to promote those who take others credit, and they tend to promote those who have family members in top positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat everyone the same and promote those who deserve the promotion. If you should hire someone that family is in a management position you should always have them earn their promotions not just give it to them because they are related to someone who works in a top position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
