    Excellent Employer

    I have been working at StyleCraft Homes full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Strong organization that has the structure and discipline of a national builder without giving up the human element of a family owned company. If you are looking to work hard, grow and be a part of an expanding company then I would recommend this company.

    Cons

    No real challenges as long as your work hard and are their for a career and not just a "job".

    I have been working at StyleCraft Homes full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people working at StyleCraft. And I hope that every single one of them gets out before Richard Kuhn and his team of “directors” ruin them.

    Cons

    There’s not one person outside of the group of “directors” who enjoys working at StyleCraft. You have a head of operations who spends a good portion of his time fixing the screw ups of a project manager (who also happens to be his brother-in-law) and another in charge of HR who was thrown out of her last job for serious ethical lapses (you can look her up on Google. Seriously.) She also spends a great deal of her time snooping in everyone else’s e-mail. The fact that these people are in positions of power at StyleCraft drastically undermines the credibility and effectiveness of Richard Kuhn to lead the company. Richard spends tons of money on consultants and supposed experts and little to no time even speaking to his own front-line employees. And, after all that, StyleCraft build homes which are dramatically overpriced for what you get and, depending on the neighborhood, falling down or lighting up the warranty phone lines soon after they’re built.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the basics, because choking your company with meetings and processes clearly is not working. You are part of the problem. Not part of the solution.

    I have been working at StyleCraft Homes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rewards those who are skilled, and work hard. There are no free rides here. If you want to be able to make an impact and be recognized for those contributions, then StyleCraft is perfect. Fast paced work environment. Great coworkers. Large, successful family owned businesses are rare in this industry and this company does it well. Very nimble. Lots of internal growth potential. Leadership is extremely fair & honest - they always do the right thing for customers, vendors, and employees.

    Cons

    There aren't any cons, unless you don't like actually working. If you want get paid for doing nothing, you won't last long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great atmosphere

    Pros

    Excellent employees who really care about homebuilding and the customers that they serve. A name that has been synonymous with quality for some time.

    Cons

    Dispassionate greedy management who could care less about employees and treat customers as though they were enemies playing for the other team. Production team is overworked and underpaid and the sales team is underpaid, has low morale and are treated as expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves and hire someone from the outside to really transform the potential of the company.

    The hours were very flexible. The people were great to work with.

    Cons

    My only complaint is working 7 days a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers were very friendly and offered valuable feedback. They always offered their assistance and made sure that supplies and home literature was replenished.
