    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new supervisors because the ones they have had for a couple of years..they don't work heck they don't even get there hands dirty

    I have been working at Clayton Homes full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Incredible benefits - Insurance for my family was cheap, had a matching 401K, etc. The culture is positive as the company truly wants what's best for all (customer, employee, etc.)

    Cons

    Working every Saturday. We never had a scheduled Saturday off. This varies store to store so in some cases it will be no problem. If the manager would give one Saturday out of four off, I think it would help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the company...keep up the good work.

    I worked at Clayton Homes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits were available but not a great plan

    Cons

    Very poor management at this particular store, open door policy is useless when those above the manager ignore Managers inappropriate comments and actions and behaviors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage fairly to everyone do not give special treatment and free passes to just one employee and not to others. If you offer a "Special Commission" on a particular lot model honor the deal you offered, do not conveniently forget it once the sale is made.

    Pros

    Helping people get into a better situation. It's nice to see smiles on the child's faces knowing you've helped them.

    Cons

    I worked for Luv Homes which is still Clayton and GM was a joke and coworkers are two faced sluts trying to hook up in lot models and lie behind your back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a shame whenever a GM sends out inappropriate text messages to team and nothing happens, even thou the CEO was informed. The Ethic line is a joke, once you report and issue, it's turned on you and your forced to leave the company. Total joke, Mr. Buffett doesn't know how his company is being ran, only see's $$$!!

    I worked at Clayton Homes as an intern

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with friendly coworkers
    Fantastic cafeteria, super healthy options
    Clean gym with incentives to work out
    Decent internal mobility
    Good benefits (health, 401k match, dental, etc)

    Cons

    Because the company is starting to get older, some processes are becoming inefficient.
    Certain departments and positions are only filled externally.
    Pay depends a lot on company performance, so you have to accept variability in your income, which can be uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay skeptical, keep looking for improvements
