    I worked at America's Home Place full-time

    Pros

    Moved to a different position not because of money but location. Being a building consultant is the best job at Americas Home Place in my opinion. You have to be very knowledgeable about construction and CAD. You also have to be very good with people. If you haven't already been to school they can send you, and have an in house school.

    Cons

    The only con is you have to work long days sometimes, but that's how you make good money.
    The interview process is very extreme, but very rewarding if you are hired.

    I worked at America's Home Place full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great working environment with tools to make you successful. Learning the most innovative ways to sell custom homes in a depleting sector of the industry.(Scatter Lot Building).

    Cons

    Discussing cons about company is difficult. The company gave me all of what I needed to achieve maximum results. I chose to leave because of declining sales during harsh times of building homes .

    Advice to Management

    Great job on coaching and teaching the right things keep up good work.

    I worked at America's Home Place full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are a building consultant in a good market, you can do relatively well financially. However, the pay per unit is nowhere near what many other national builders pay. I was treated like a rock star by regional management, until the economy started to falter. So I left. And in the end, so did he. Otherwise, good people and a sincere desire to treat people by the Golden Rule. Barry means well and he's a good man...he can't be everything to everybody in a day. Beautiful model homes. Good product in my region.

    Cons

    I see on many of these reviews, that their are too many chiefs. I can see that things haven't changed. I'm unsure if AHP still does this, but when I was with the company, there was always some new "program" that upper management had drank the Kool-Aid and believed in: a book, a training program, some guru, etc. I used to call it the "management style of the year." To succeed in sales with AHP, it is best to just ignore that mess and keep concentrating on SELLING! I feel that the construction supers were often "used up" by upper management in busy offices. I also feel that production employees were often envious of sales incomes.

    Advice to Management

    Update the platform on the construction side to free superintendents up to do their jobs. Pay for sales team should be better vs other builders. I know what your profit margins were.....salespeople should be paid at least what a real estate agent would make to represent a buyer's side of a deal!!
