    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Not only does the company invest in their employers, they have a great wellness department and gym, basketball and volleyball, a great greenway jogging trail, and healthy greenway cafeteria!. They manage to maintain outstanding sales and has great backing as a Berkshire Hathaway company.

    Cons

    Need new positions and more innovative employees to help lead the wonderful talent they have. Quicker growth opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in current employers and create new roles that are essential within a company of their size. Would suggest looking at how similar businesses are structured.

    Pros

    You get to work with customers face to face. Income can be anywhere from $24 thousand to osix figures. Great incentive trips.

    Cons

    This is a big ticket item type of sales and is not for everyone. You have to get a high sales number to make a decent income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be very knowledgeable about the current General Managers you have at your Sales Centers and their current sales techniques and state of mind.

    I worked at Clayton Homes full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with a couple really great people who kind of compensated for a ineffective manager and his office pet who had totally separate rules to follow than other employees from dress code to attendance, and those rules were altered almost weekly to fit her needs. She had no sales but got all the advantages as if she did, all sales people were penalized for her lack of production.

    Cons

    This manager does not manage professionally, totally changes and disrupts posted schedules on a knee jerk reaction like a 12 year old pouting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be much more selective in your managers, if employees are having an issue and coming to upper management address the issue instead of doing the good old boy sweep it under the rug.

    Pros

    Lots of open positions lots of people and opportunity.

    Cons

    Started as a temp working customer service..very unfriendly staff. Do NOT work temp here. I then asked them if there is a high turnover because I know they lose everyone and they said..no just apply. I applied and they said that I had possible negativity. Is negativity asking why they have so much turnover in order to save myself a job when im looking for a career opportunity? i just wanted to work for the right company. I can't believe HR told me this when i worked for them. I am the most positive person on earth. Wrong judgement. I would never work for you if you hired me right now despite my previous interview process. HR, you are the reason that the company is negative. You can't tell someone that. Create the atmosphere you want. YOUR Loss. I'm a college graduate , top of my class, and worked in customer service for a very long time. Everyone knows im a positive person. It's not my fault you are horribly managed--and I'm taking the blame for that. Ive never had someone say that to me ever and I'm so insulted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to stop being dramatic. If you want hard workers higher them. People are going to ask you about your reputation and if you are not going to hire someone because they are curious about working there, then it's too bad you have a worse reputation than you had before. I don't have anything to prove, my credentials speak enough. Where as you do. Prove to me that you are worth working for, or I go.I can't believe that's how you operate. You all need some positive HR people because i will never EVER recommend this to a friend and I HAVE gotten interviews and turned them down because my recommendation got let go the same day. Who would want to work for such people? Not me. Good luck finding a college graduate like me who is very skilled, professional, positive, and a go getter.
