    Current Employee - New Home Sales Associate  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - New Home Sales Associate in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Richmond American Homes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Amazing Management (Keep open communication with them and they will be open with you)
    -Compensation (If you aren't on target to make over $100K you are doing something wrong)
    -Brand Loyalty (Richmond is a household name and buyers recognize Richmond for their quality of home)
    -Support (My manager and the marketing team have been very open to new ideas and helping me grow my community)
    -Awards (Silly, I know, however it feels good to know you did a good job!)
    - Training (Richmond provides the best traning program I know of. You have daily training calls and they empower you in your personal / professional life.)

    Cons

    -Work / Life Balance (Plan on working 50+ hours a week and recently we have had training on our days off. I'm going into my 4th 1 day weekend. This is NOT a position for someone who wants to do the bare minimum and just "get by")
    -No Base Salary (They pay on a draw system, so while you may be receiving a check every 2 weeks, it will be months before you see a real paycheck.)
    -Partners. (Richmond has created a very competitve sales floor. I have heard the good and bad. I am neutral about my sales partner. My partner has been with the company for a few years and while I enjoy working with my partner, he/she has put me in many tough situations that I have felt could cost me my postion. This is true with ANY home builder, not just Richmond.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Schedule training during work hours. We work VERY hard on our scheduled days and need a 2 day weekend to recharge.
    -Assign tasks to Sales Associates in each office, so one Sales Associate is not stuck doing EVERYTHING. I have often felt it would be easier to have my office alone than with my sales partner. I do 99% of the work and my partner only shows up for the glory moments. There is no way to bring this up to management without throwing my partner "under the bus".
