    Pros

    Smaller company, no corporate crap
    Management knows who you are
    Compensation is good, and there is a base salary for sales plus commission
    Great product

    Cons

    Having a sales partner sucks
    If you are lucky enough to have the community to yourself, you'll only have one day off/week
    No time off the first year
    No scanners in the office...company wastes a lot of paper

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid internal drama and increase sales success by having one sales person per office with an assistant.

    I worked at McGuyer Homebuilders full-time

    Pros

    Only pro is you can make good money but it takes a lot of hours and you sacrifice your family and personal time.

    Cons

    -micromanaging at every level
    -work on your days off all the time
    -team building activities that you're required to spend your own money on
    -required to waste your gas on marketing activities
    -they don't care about you just if you're making numbers. I understand this is sales but this is the worst situation I've ever been in
    -way too much turnover
    -managers that don't know what they're doing
    -brand new construction managers that have never built a home in their life
    -sales is required to do homeowner intros and not the construction managers. Makes no sense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the micromanaging and invest in your employees. A happy employee is a good employee and possibly one that will stick around for a while.

    Pros

    One of the best homebuilders to start with, get experience and learn about the industry.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of opportunities for advancement due to the tenure of management. They also hire top management outside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has good leadership and are well respected in the industry but employees need to be compensated for their hard work.

    Pros

    Great training, great commissions, great product. I do not believe upper management is aware of all things that take place.

    Cons

    Area Management DOESN'T possess functional leadership skills, selfish for their own needs & in times of company crisis, you pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair, what's good for the goose, should be good for the gander. The geese supply your business & success.
