Great place to start a sales career if you don't mind working weekends.

Pros

It was a perfect way to start off my career in sales. The pay and commission structure is good and so are the benefits.

Cons

You will have to work every single weekend. I also always felt guilty taking time off. You can never feel good about taking vacation and they don't even spell out how much vacation time you have because you are technically a commissioned employee even though they pay you a decent draw around $50,000 a year. There will also be a lot of mandatory after work activities, call nights, and you will have to come in for meetings on your days off. Sales meetings are always held at the corporate office which can be more than an hour from your actual community.

Advice to Management

Let people feel good about taking time off and give them specific parameters as to your exact number of days off.

    Pros

    Great people in the field. Fun work environment before the housing bubble burst. Tremendous in-house training opportunities. One of the best benefit packages I've ever had.

    Cons

    Not a fun work environment after the housing bubble burst. Management considered themselves before their employees in the face of adversity. Base salary was not competitive. Management had favorite employees and it showed. Management typically had no field experience prior to holding their positions which caused them to make poor business decisions. Management treated employees like children.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that division, area, and senior levels of management should have field experience in Construction, Warranty, and/or Sales. It helps to understand how the business operates than to make a 'best-guess'.

    Pros

    Culture is amazing, you find they hire people who are similar to you and have the same interest as you. When the market was good, life was good.

    Cons

    Unless you are in sales, you had no opportunity to take part in spiffs or receive awards. Not everyone can be in sales.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the politics
