    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.

    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
