    Pros

    Good team atmosphere. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Job security tied to real estate market. More of a starting point for a career than an ending point.

    I worked at D.R. Horton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best friends that I have for the past 9 years developed from working relationships made while at D.R. Horton. We all worked our tails off and had a great team. The paychecks were good for years until the market turned.

    Cons

    As a loan officer, they required us to bring in retail business as well as the builder business. Our underwriters were not comfortable underwriting retail loans and that caused issues. You can't keep convincing realtors to send us their loans when our underwriting would deny them or underwrite more strcitly than other mortgage companies would.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems like a mixed message to want the loan officers to focus on builder business AND retail business. Once a loan officer builds up enough retail business they will just leave the builder and take the realtor relationships with them.

    Pros

    health insurance is cheap, I guess it's nice to be healthy while I job shop

    Cons

    they treat people like owned slaves, make everyone work for free-office, construction and sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get real, now that the market is changing all these people who have been over worked and under paid are going to go to the other builders who are going to explode.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers.
    Benefits
    Clean office
    Discounts on appliances, furniture from old model homes.

    Cons

    Some of the middle-management was out of touch with reality and didn't understand processes very well. Made changes mid-stream and didn't realize the ripple effects of their actions and the extreme amount of extra work involved to make certain changes.

    To make the changes, you had to work extra hours without pay.

    No raises at ALL (3 1/2 years nothing)
    Being told "You should just be happy to have a job here"
    Being bullied into working late hours/weekends without pay at all.
    No mileage reimbursement for personal vehicles
    Favoritism within certain departments

    No room for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that everyone isn't a "yes" man that works with you. Take responsibility for your own actions and respect people of all employment levels and their personal TIME.
