    Pros

    Phenomenal 8% match for 401k, higher base salary than industry standard (lower com. %) David Weekely himself seems great, too bad his values are not being carried out.

    Cons

    Heavy emphasis on team, when team means being part of the GOB in your area and not speaking out against very inappropriate behavior. Your trainer may very well be someone who is assigned as your mentor that is a competing coworker. Hopefully they won't set you up to fail and leave out key elements of the position. Sales is disposable and you must be willing to be talked down to by builders or project coordinator if they do not like you or are in a bad mood. They are the employees that are valued. If you blow the whistle on unethical behavior of a tenured employee, you will pay the price severely in backlash. Politics are more important than anything, even more than your success with sales and customer satisfaction. You will have to fill out surveys via email that everyone knows are not confidential and say everything is great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually follow the values set by David Weekley. Don't force employees to be friends with one another in order to be considered a team player. Just allow them to go to work and do their job and be professional. Teamwork should be about taking care of customers, treating others the way you would like to be treated, and helping coworkers get sales for the company. Understand that if a sales person becomes successful they will often become a target by jealous employees, especially if they are new to the industry. Do not judge employees based on whether or not the clique accepts them.
