  1.  

    I worked at America's Home Place full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at America's Home Place

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people that I worked with were great. The office was very nice, supplies were maintained and it was a very clean environment. We always had Sundays off. If the right Superintendents are in place, they build a good house for the cost.

    Cons

    Benefits were horrible, personal growth was minimal, work schedule left little time for family. Pay was less than other area builders. Had multiple people at corporate with the same responsibility which made getting something accomplished take entirely too long. Offices have little to no freedom in Marketing or ads. No direct deposit offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to trust your employees at the retail locations and provide more recognition. We always heard about the parties and events going on at Corporate but our Model Center never had any kind of event or recognition. Step up your benefit package, if you are going to offer meager medical at least compensate with more time off. Listen to what the Model Centers have to say about their Market.

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

    I worked at America's Home Place

    Pros

    In the right region things, for what I hear, are great...My region, I would be hard pressed to find Pros beyond a regular check

    Cons

    benifits, no raises, no advancement, no leadership, no support...taking advantage of the economy and loading up current employees, knowing they need the job, and not hiring...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none, the best people have or are leaving...the rest can sink
