    Pros

    Good work environment if you're in the right department. Positive attitudes. Lots of bonus opportunities. Good hours. On-site gym and cafeteria.

    Cons

    Can be hard to move up in the company if you are not an experienced networker. More about who you know than what you can do sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Need to compensate better for the amount of work people do.

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits.
    Quarterly bonus was usually very good.
    Tight knit group of coworkers several of which are still great friends years later.
    Hours were normally very good.
    Excellent work life balance.

    Cons

    Extremely hot in the summers.
    Some areas are back breaking.
    Hard to advance. Great people but very much a 'good ole boy' network.
    PTO was a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Management within the building are some of the best.


  3. Horrible Company to work for.

    Pros

    There are no pro's for this company.

    Cons

    If you want to make a decent living definitely avoid Clayton Homes. Long hours, corporate bs to deal with on a daily basis. The pay is terrible, 2 holidays a year off. Take my advice, stay away from them at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Quit screwing with sales people's pay based on screw ups from the service dept.

    Pros

    Some coworkers were great and the only thing that made it tolerable at all. Customers were great too cute the most part.

    Cons

    Management and their non performing pet employee who was allowed to stay and drag the whole does numbers down.

    Advice to Management

    Try making decisions based on something besides who kisses up and shakes their backside for you. Try enforcing dress codes and attendance requirements equally for everyone.

    Pros

    Company has a talented management team that quickly adapts to market conditions. Further, and for the most part, the company is cognizant of internal and external dynamics in the market place and has the ability to capitalize on social trends, etc. They believe in their product from top to bottom and the people I worked with there were excellent.

    Cons

    I had a bad experience with the company, mainly due to personnel and personal issues, but I believe that to be the exception, rather than the norm. Other than that, I can't say this company has any real con's.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I could have offered at the time was regarding the specific market segment that we were in, but I believe the company no longer really serves this market segment.

    Pros

    Incentive programs were excellent and bonuses as a team were also great!

    Cons

    If the over all sales quotas aren't met as a team there is a chance the location will close down, (cease to exist)

    Advice to Management

    Keep a closer look out on upper management, store managers tend to break rules for personal reasons.

    Pros

    A reasonably relaxed work environment a freight job. There are several perks beyond the strict pay structure. Over all they tend to promote a culture of family and success.

    Cons

    Hours don't match what is typical for the industry (they advocate longer hours), while they preach having time for friends and family and the importance having time off.

    Advice to Management

    To keep the best and brightest, you need to pay them.
