Meritage Homes – Why Work For Us?


It's About You More Than It's About Us.

Some might say it's important to tell you that we've been around since 1985. Or that we've won a slew of awards ranging from Forbes' Platinum 400 Best Big Companies of America to being the recipient of Texas' Builder of the Year five times, or being named ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year. But we're about practicality and doing things that actually make a difference in your life and the way you live.

For instance, you're probably a lot more interested in knowing that Meritage builds new, beautifully designed, energy-efficient homes that can save you as much as 50% on your utility bills.* Or, that we were the first national top 10 homebuilder to have every home we build be 100% ENERGY STAR certified. That means it saves you energy and money.

With more than 100,000 homes built, our focus, since day one, has been to build incredible new homes and communities in prime locations for fantastic prices. We build them for real people: People with families and those without; people with everyday, busy lives, and those who are now enjoying a more relaxed lifestyle. But more than anything, we build energy-efficient homes and communities for people who appreciate a home being built the way it can, and should, be built. For you it means having a new home that comes standard with ENERGY STAR features that save money and energy, month after month, at no extra cost to you.


We Help Build Great Careers, Too.

From the homes we build to the careers we offer, we’re about doing things that actually make a difference in your life and the way you live. Meritage Homes is a thriving company that believes in building beautiful, incredibly innovative and energy-efficient homes people adore.

And with more than 100,000 homes built, our focus, since day one, has been to build incredible new homes and communities in prime locations for fantastic prices. But more than anything, we build energy-efficient homes and communities for people who appreciate a home being built the way it can, and should, be built. And for the staff at Meritage Homes that make this all possible, we believe in having the same standards of quality and reward that make for an enjoyable career.

    I have been working at Meritage Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have only been there for a little while but love the culture here. I love the product and I have been showered with kindness and thoughtfulness since starting. I can't believe this job exists. The pay is amazing and I am so lucky to have this job. I've worked for many non ethical and noncorporate companies and have had awful experiences. The workplace is beautiful.

    Cons

    Corporate is a big office and when u pass by others in the hall no one says hi or looks up. It's weird. I just smile more and say hi more. Petty but this is the only thing I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for hiring me. I love it here. :)

    New Home Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Meritage Homes (Atlanta, GA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A short email with a schedule of times to come to a hiring event. It was about 40 people at the hiring event. Four employees explained the company and what they will bring to the Atlanta, GA area and the homes being built. After 15 minutes they invited 4 applicants at a time to 4 tables behind a screen. No one was hired on the spot and all the conversations were open like a networking event. I received an email with they are going with someone else. Initially they were building at least 8 new communities now I look online they are building 27 communities. I think they already had a pool of applicants selected and this was just a learning and networking session to get the Meritage Home name out there to buyer agents. I plan to visit every home being built and hope see at least one black man.
