    I have been working at Schumacher Homes

    Pros

    Built a nice home and worked with the Home owners well and cared a great deal about the process they were going through.

    Cons

    Pay plan was bad. You got a company vehicle but the bonus program was non existent when I was there and the salary was poor.

    Pros

    No pros to the job other than a paycheck for a time.

    Cons

    Effectively, the company is predatory in the way they handle their customers. Customers do not know that they are not receiving a complete house. Have never seen brand new houses not appraise for what the company sold them for until I worked for these people. Effectively, they get a construction loan which they revert to a mortgage at substantial completion and transfer it to the homeowners name prior to closing. Substantial completion does not include driveway/walkway/grading/landscaping of any kind. I saw customers crying on the street because the house did not appraise for the mortgage amount. They have to refinance in order to get in the house yet Schumacher gets paid the full amount at transfer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus upon the product as opposed to tricking people out of their money through entrapment within a contract.

    Pros

    Builder is provided company vehicle to check individual projects.

    Cons

    Builder has to cover many miles each day to oversee his/her projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to see more promotion from within the organization instead of bringing in management from outside the organization who are unfamiliar with the way things are done within the organization.

    I worked at Schumacher Homes full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the sales people and all of our subs. I enjoyed working for most of the homeowners

    Cons

    management personell who were making the high salaries had a way of refusing to pay bonuses to builders if issues were beyond the builders control, such as subs that we were forced to use

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your builders when it comes to selecting subs in their area. Don't flaunt your extravagant vacations when the builders know they are paying for it..

    I worked at Schumacher Homes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice looking homes. Especially the models which are not a reflection of how homes are finished with standard features. Owner does cares about his company, but doesn't have a clue what goes on in field.

    Cons

    Owner does not have an inkling of what goes on in his satellite offices. There is no team spirit and there is so much money wasted. Pay is horrible. Compared to other sales jobs in new home sales the pay is paltry. Builders are nickel and dime'd to death. General managers are given all power and are often abusive with it. There are no corporate perks to speak of. Very unlike other builders I have worked with. Insurance is Ohio based. My co-workers in other states paid higher co-pays because the insurance didn't cover them the same. Small company with small ideas and small vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees from different sites do talk to each other. We know the difference in our pay. We know not everyone has to work every weekend. There needs to be more training and there needs to be rules that ALL must abide by. Your General Managers should have managerial experience and people skills.
