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

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement as General managers are quitting everyday, even from profitable stores

    Cons

    New financial regulations have made it difficult fro people to buy. 20% down, 12% interest rates, bad terms and conditions. Bad reputation for supporting managers that were crooks, if they were giving a bottom line to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get REAL! You have totally lost touch with what is going on at the MHC level.

    Pros

    The pay is great and the experience with the customers is fulfilling. Good rewards if you make it to the top 25% of the sales force copany wide. Nice trips, extra earnings etc.

    Cons

    Many managers within the company are either incompetent for the job, or just shady people,either way the employees and customers lose. Managers expect you to work open to close all the time and that can be 10-12 hours a day.Training is a joke also!

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at who you have leading your sales centers... could they cut it as sales people? If not they shouldn't be there. A manager who does not have the skills, and the knowledge to be a sales person will never be a successful manager. The other thing that is completely ridiculus is the "bull-pen" office you have for the sales people. It is so unprofessional. All the remodeling to take out each person's office and combine to this method was a huge mistake. Customers deserve to sit down with someone in their office, where they have all the tools needed to sell the house. They system now of the bull pen and they closing rooms are counterproductive. Trying to make a phone call with three people all in the same office ... what a joke.
