OUR PEOPLE ARE OUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET

McBride Homes' skilled management team reflects a harmonious blend of leaders with diverse educational backgrounds, including advanced degrees in law, finance, and construction management.

Directing the day-to-day operations with McBride Homes' scope and magnitude requires a broad range of talent and knowledge, and the firm fosters an environment which gives employees considerable opportunity for growth and advancement.

STABILITY IS OUR STRENGTH

Progressive management systems, fiscally conservative business practices, and a diversified approach to corporate planning have established McBride Homes as one of the most stable construction firms in the homebuilding industry.

To meet ever-changing demands of the industry, McBride has achieved consistent growth and steady earnings through the formulation of business strategies which anticipate and readily adapt to economic cycles and industry trends.

As a result, its long-term financial strength and stability have earned the confidence and trust of customers, business associates, lenders and venture partners.

In 1946, a carpenter named Joseph C. McBride started McBride & Son. The company was founded with a mission: to provide affordable housing for returning G.I.s from World War II.

With a loan for tools, McBride entered the construction business, building his first home in North St. Louis County. The company’s modest profits, always reinvested, resulted in conservative but steady growth.

During the 1950s and 1960s, expansion led to subdivision housing and apartments. Although construction slowed nationally on the 1970s, McBride & Son was chosen by a major lending institution to develop a large, historic tract of land which would provide upscale housing for 4500 residents.

Growth continued throughout the folllowing decades, as McBride Homes grew under Joseph McBride’s belief that a builder is only as good as the last house they built. Through site selection, plat mapping, architectural design and the finest crafts people, quality construction stood the test of time - remaining the hallmark of every McBride Homes’ product.

Today, McBride is not only Missouri's largest home builder; it has the highest market share of any builder in any top 30 market across the nation.

And our philosophy is simple – provide our customers with excellent service and superior craftsmanship to build the highest-quality homes that meet or exceed their expectations in design, quality, value and customer service.

With more than 70 years of homebuilding experience, our mission is to continue providing a wide range of homes and products, while obtaining quality craftsmanship, affordability for our customers, and the best locations in the St. Louis metro area.

    I have been working at McBride Homes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for McBride for 4 years now, and coming to this company was truly a catalyst for some of the best progress and experiences in my life. In this position as sales manager, you get back what you put in - so being a self-starter who thrives on achieving goals can lead to some pretty incredible results.
    One of the most impressive things about the company is how personable the relationship is between sales, design studio, corporate, and management. There is transparency, emphasis on growth, accountability, and real effort towards maintaining a positive and fun work environment.
    Regarding the sales position itself, it is incredible to sell a product that you stand behind. I am constantly impressed by the integrity of leadership at every level. There are no grey areas in terms of protocol and expectations, which helps to provide stability for home buyers during one of the biggest purchases of their lives. In my experience, all of this leads to homeowners who feel validated, appreciated, and most important, happy.

    Cons

    The requirement of working weekends may be perceived as a con, but honestly I love it. Because you're off for 2 days during the week you don't have to use up your time off for obligations such as doctors appointments.
