    I worked at D.R. Horton full-time for 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.

    I have been working at D.R. Horton full-time for more than 3 years

    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.
