    Not a great place to work

    I worked at Grand Homes Inc.

    Pros

    Great looking product, excellent web site, financially sound, decent working environment. Well known within the industry, better than average sales training.

    Cons

    Homes are overpriced compared to the rest of the market. Level of standard features are the lowest in the industry. Endless non-productive sales meetings. Management is not receptive to input from lower levels. Deceptive pricing and promotions. Extremely, repeat, extremely high turn over in sales positions. No benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on the sales meetings and training sessions. Let community managers have some days off. Respond to requests from the field. Price your product according to the market.

    I worked at Grand Homes Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I met some great people.

    Cons

    The turnover rate is astounding, and for good reason. Be sure to ask the question, what is your turnover rate? They will lie, but in truth this company has had 7 Sales Associates quit or be fired in the last 90 days. Because the average Sales Associate only lasts 90 to 120 days, the company gets free labor. It is very difficult to see any income in that short of a time, however you will work 60 plus hours a week and be required to attend non paid trainings and day long meetings that will prevent you from selling. The culture is toxic and you be subjected to various forms of intimidation, and emotional abuse. The CEO creates an environment where employees must "request" their hard earned money, and at anytime he can take "his" money back. Most Sales Associates owe Grand Homes money, due to the system of draws and back charges. It is literally possible to do everything right, make a sale and the CEO decides that you receive NO Commission at all. Ask to speak with three active Sales Associates that have been employed less than a year and don't be afraid to ask the hard questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating human beings as disposable. Pay your Sales Associates minimum wage, if you require them to work scheduled hours and waste entire days waiting around corporate. Your motto is "People Matter", start with your own people.

    Pros

    Bi Monthly Pizza Party with food and drink during disguised Rah Rah Sales meetings

    Cons

    Very dysfunctional company and culture......In my 20 + years of sales I have never witness a more screw up company.....Grand Homes sales managers/associates consistantly average 70% turnover rate for sales personnel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the kiss butts and replace upper managers with quality managers who can tell the owner What he Needs to hear, Not what he wants to hear.

    I have been working at Grand Homes Inc.

    Pros

    -Work is easy, basically consists of helping the sales managers perform their duties.

    -Get a $250 bonus if you help sell a home.

    Cons

    -Paycheck is bimonthly and you are responsible for getting your hours faxed to the corporate office so if they don't get in they don't pay you until the next pay period. They consistently loose time sheets...

    -long commutes to different subdivisions (about 30min)... so you spend a lot on gas

    -They only give you 32 hours a week.

    -No health insurance for sales assistants

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to retain quality people you have to pay quality wages
