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.

    I worked at Meritage Homes (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on the person and their priorities, one can succeed here ... but there is a cost - mostly to time with your family.

    Cons

    People seemed to be second to profit. Perhaps management finally is realizing the "us" and "them" dichotomy within the culture and improvements can occur. Changing out HR was a good start

    Advice to Management

    Get good people first working together - profits will follow. unfortunately, the good people have choices - always remember that.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    30 minute phone conversation with 2 members on the TA team. Pretty standard discussion but what I did not like in anyway is they asked what my salary was and what I wanted to make but they refused to tell me what the salary range was because team level employees were on the call. It's very unprofessional to ask salary related questionshbut then not disclose what the range is because team members are on the phone. If that is how they look at it, then said team members do not need to know what I was making and what I want to be making. I was not asked to move forward but I got a personal call letting me know about getting declined which I thought was a nice touch.
