    I worked at America's Home Place full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    America's Home Place really cares about its people.

    Cons

    Only located in the South East

    Advice to Management

    Great people! Thanks for the amazing opportunity the past 12 years.


  2. I worked at America's Home Place full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great working environment with tools to make you successful. Learning the most innovative ways to sell custom homes in a depleting sector of the industry.(Scatter Lot Building).

    Cons

    Discussing cons about company is difficult. The company gave me all of what I needed to achieve maximum results. I chose to leave because of declining sales during harsh times of building homes .

    Advice to Management

    Great job on coaching and teaching the right things keep up good work.

    I worked at America's Home Place full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are a building consultant in a good market, you can do relatively well financially. However, the pay per unit is nowhere near what many other national builders pay. I was treated like a rock star by regional management, until the economy started to falter. So I left. And in the end, so did he. Otherwise, good people and a sincere desire to treat people by the Golden Rule. Barry means well and he's a good man...he can't be everything to everybody in a day. Beautiful model homes. Good product in my region.

    Cons

    I see on many of these reviews, that their are too many chiefs. I can see that things haven't changed. I'm unsure if AHP still does this, but when I was with the company, there was always some new "program" that upper management had drank the Kool-Aid and believed in: a book, a training program, some guru, etc. I used to call it the "management style of the year." To succeed in sales with AHP, it is best to just ignore that mess and keep concentrating on SELLING! I feel that the construction supers were often "used up" by upper management in busy offices. I also feel that production employees were often envious of sales incomes.

    Advice to Management

    Update the platform on the construction side to free superintendents up to do their jobs. Pay for sales team should be better vs other builders. I know what your profit margins were.....salespeople should be paid at least what a real estate agent would make to represent a buyer's side of a deal!!

    Pros

    It's fun to be a part of building a home for a family .

    Cons

    There are not many job titles so it's very difficult to move up in a branch office, maybe at the corporate office it would be easier.

    Advice to Management

    There is only one person that I have dealt with personally that needs help in leading a team, there is a fine line between being a leader and being rude to your employees.

    I worked at America's Home Place full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my experience working here. I am a well-educated, highly motivated individual who puts forth 1005 effort in any job I do.

    Cons

    I found that management did not always do what was promised for either the customer or the employee. Most people are reasonable and understand situations arise; especially in the ever volatile economic environment of the past few years. If you are in the middle of a promise between management and a customer, you can not always be responsible for the outcome.

    Advice to Management

    Always do what you commit yourself to. If that isn't possible, let your customer or your employee know as soon as you know that what you promised is not available. Do not let people "think" one thing while you deliberately know that something else is about to occur. It just simple common courtesy, do the right thing.

    I worked at America's Home Place full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with customers is very rewarding and exciting!

    Cons

    Low pay & commissions for the Building Consultants/Salespeople. America's Home Place is the only sales company I have ever worked for that didn't recognize their top sales people with a formal rewards ceremony or company retreat in a vacation destination.

    Advice to Management

    The money makers of the company are the building consultants that actually sell houses and bring money into the company. Show them respect, give them recognition for their efforts and pay them better.

    Pros

    I get paid on time.

    Cons

    There is a lack of leadership, no way to move up in the company, no future.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the reins, allow some freedom to work. The paperwork bottleneck is unbelievable.
