Pros

Great training program, 401k, uniforms.

Cons

The compensation not equal to responsibility. Sales reps are responsible for generating almost all of their own traffic, getting all needed documents for home loan counselor, calling buyers to check on loan status, scheduling all appointments from contract to close. The only holidays the sales offices are closed is Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day and New years day. Management only communicates to ask how many sales you have for the week and if you don't have any, they don't care enough to ask why. They somehow overlook the dishonest sales reps, because as long as they are making sales, KB doesn't care WHAT the sales rep lied to the buyer about, as it is clearly stated in the contract that they can not be held liable for anything that the sales rep said. The employees talk trash about each other, sales managers talk trash about sales reps in front of other sales reps(from different properties).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None, they know the company has a high turn over, and they know why.....they just don't care, as long as they are getting a paycheck.

    Allow for longer build times, and provide up to date technology for employees.

    Pros

    A leader in the industry. Very well respected within the homebuilding industry. You learn a ton because there are proven processes, procedures and performance measurement in place. Great place to start if you want to develop in the Homebuilding industry. Fast paced. At edge with current industry trend all the time. Good leadership. Driven and knowledgable staff. After proper training, you will know what you are supposed to do and how your performance being measured.

    Cons

    Hard working. Cyclical industry. You may loss job with the next downturn. Your boss maybe a old fashioned manager who knows a lot but at the same time has bad temper. Pay is based on performance with a large portion coming from bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the KBnxt alive. Force the Divisions to follow the practices as close as possible. Stay on course.
