Steer clear!

Housing Consultant (Current Employee)

ProsYou can make lots of $ if you're motivated

ConsExpect to work 11 hours a day despite what you are told initially. Managers have autonomy to be there when they feel like it and sales covers 8am-7pm. So, if you have no life, jump right in. NO training until you defeat the odds and look promising, which I was able to do. There is very little sales support or construction support so you will sell homes, build them, be a receptionist, interface and juggle warranty issues from the house you sold last month and the person who bought 5 years before you got there. All this and an expectation to keep on top of building sales momentum. I am successful here, but the more successful, the less personal life you can have because you will go back to having 7 houses to build, calling trades, visiting sites, etc... oh, and no gas/car reimbursement. If you are motivated and want to make money but do not care about your family, a great place to work. I used to have weekends off, but when one our fellow salespeople didn't make it, it was put on us to be there all day every day and every weekend and I forgot what "vacation" means.

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your sales team. We work tireless hours while you are home with your families. Give us a construction person to handle what bogs us down. We pay YOUR salaries.
