It comes down to the community

  • Comp & Benefits

Pros

Schedule is somewhat flexible, good benefits package and commission. Company is buying communities so you will have a product to sell for some time to come.

Cons

May vary by region or city but they are going about acquiring communities in reverse. They buy the land then set a price for the community based on a profit margin despite what homes in the area are selling for. Lack of creative thoughts or ideas and being profitable is more important than anything. Yet if the model looks bad you'll scramble to fix it and waste money at the last minute. It all comes down to the community you get, if it is priced correctly in a desirable locale you can be sucessful. Otherwise good luck.

Advice to Management

Buy new properties based on the home prices in the area. If your 20k over priced because of land cost and local realtors are telling you that LISTEN! If your top agents are so good put them in struggling communities and reward them if they can turn them around. Don't force new talent into financial holes because management made a bad purchase.

    Pros

    Office supplies available without expense.

    Cons

    Hortons are puppet-masters. They ridicule personnel every chance they get. Each Monday morning is an exercise in slavery to the Kings. In monetary terms, please know: 1) They advertise the individual's cell number and offer NO payment for the use of YOUR phone 2) They did not pay me the "back-end" commissions of deals left by the previous Counselor 3) They did not develop building sites to keep up with my sales pace. I was dead in the water

    Advice to Management

    Heartless group who would ignore advise, if given. They know it all.


  2. Do your homework before you accept a job or particular community.

    Pros

    Compensation can be good if you're in a good community, especially if you exceed your quota. Health benefits are ok. Nice coworkers.

    Cons

    If you're stuck in a bad community, I hope you have a lot of savings, because you might just sit there forever. Management is slow to make changes while you starve to death. They do not share information with you either, so you are left to wonder if you'll ever get help or get moved. No weekends off and very little work/life balance, but that's new homes for you!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They know what they need to sell. Make sure there's a work/life balance and that they have the tools to be successful. Show that you care. It goes a long way with employees.
