I worked at D.R. Horton

Pros

Great career advancement opportunities. Working with customers and homeowners very rewarding. You need to be tough skinned and energetic to be a success.

Cons

Many hours of work and difficulties to deal with. Overall the focus is on the bottomline production numbers and not so much the satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The best course of employee development is empowerment and positive feedback. The age of the ancient construction worker is fading out and technology is becoming more key.

    I have been working at D.R. Horton

    Pros

    They are family oriented. You work with fantastic people. They have a work hard, have fun attitude. They're flexible with your schedule if you need time off.

    Cons

    Some of the HR policies seem a little antiquated. The benefits aren't the best either, but you pretty much take what you can get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've been able to lead D.R. Horton through the worst part of the recession, and are a stronger company for it. Maybe consider updating some of the HR policies regarding new hires and paid time off and benefits.

    I have been working at D.R. Horton

    Pros

    1. Good pay. 2. you are your own boss for the most part. 3. Lots of vacation days to take after 5 years.

    Cons

    As the company navigates it's way through this down economy after laying off about 80% of the work force "we are asked to do the job of 5 plus employees without receiving any extra compensation. We have lost bonus money and no raises have been giving out for 4 years. Also as field construction employee you are left out of most company functions. The past for years has been very stagnant place to work with no light at the end of the tunnel as far as advancement or salary increases. All in all you get the feeling that the company could care less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the employees that you have choosen to keep because they are great at what they do. offer the same opportunities to all employees. let your employees know how valuble they are especially when you cannot give out raises.
