KB Home, a great place for liars to work.

New Home Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Jacksonville, FL

I worked at KB Home

ProsGreat training program, 401k, uniforms.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementNone, 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
