Pros

you can make a lot of money but YOU must get out there and do the work. No one else will take care of your business.

Cons

If you dont have a good manager in retail then it will be a tough job. But you cant blame your bad sales for there faults. I made plenty of money with a bad manager in charge. It cost me alot of time and stress. but if you truly want to make a good income its 100% up to you

Advice to ManagementAdvice

cut 50% of the jobs in the corprate office and more will get done. To many chiefs, politics, and "recordintg for training purposes". We need to stop worring about hurting feelings of the people who arent doing there jobs. It takes 5 people (not counting there supervisors) to do what 2 did 3 years ago.

    I have been working at Clayton Homes

    Pros

    Fun people, they do throw a lot of good contests out there and keep the competition up to succeed. Problem is they provide no tools to succeed. You will find yourself involved in a lot of non - revenue generating tasks that pay you nothing and keep you sliding into a hole of draw. Such as finding land, building houses, battling with county offices on code and getting building permits. Not worth it. If you just sold homes, that would be fine, but 70% of the time you are coddling corporate for paperwork they already received or paperwork to get loans approved which is not a home salesperson's responsibility

    Cons

    Long hours, no support, management changes constantly. No ramp up period to learn product, you start digging a "draw" hole from day one and it's hard to recover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No field support? You will just burn your people out and they will not stay....

    I worked at Clayton Homes

    Pros

    Seemed like a great company, Berkshire Hathaway song & dance, but employer beware, it's a mess inside

    Cons

    Long, I mean 60 hour long work weeks, was not disclosed in the beginning. I showed up and found out the whole team had quit only to then be brow beaten into working LONG hours and continue to go into the "draw" hole. Don't do it, no training, no support, no money... I have moved on and am so much better off!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spunging off salesforce, help them, don't cripple them
