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.

We were the first national top 10 homebuilder to have every home we build be 100% ENERGY STAR® certified. 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.

When joining Meritage Homes, you and your career can benefit in a number of ways, including:

  • An entrepreneurial work environment that encourages creativity and innovative ideas from every level

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

    Pros

    Meritage Homes is a great company that really puts their employees first. There has never been a moment in my career here where I felt like my voice wasn't heard or that people weren't constantly pushing me forward. I am constantly getting the motivation from my peers as well as my managers to give feedback in order to make Meritage even better. I must also mention that the quality of the product we sell exceeds our competitors by a long shot and it is easy to see why!

    Cons

    I would love if they had potato chips on our side of the office... I have to walk over to regional to get them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building the business at the regional level. We have an amazing product that is recognized nationally, but we have a long way to go with making our brand a household name.
