    I have been working at Clayton Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is crazy good. You get a $20,000 base salary and then earn commissions and yes you start out at a lower commission rate but they ramp you up the more you sale and if you are consistent you can make over a $100,000 a year easy and in some areas double that. Then they do contest all the time and top performers can earn a once a year trip that is always top of the line spare no expense vacation and they even give you some spending cash to boot. And they promote from within and there is all kind of opportunity for moving up. And great vacation time and crazy good benefits.

    Cons

    If you are good and have a lot of deals working it can be a challenge to keep on top of all of them and get them to the finish line. But there is challenges in all jobs.

    Advice to Management

    I would just say help your salespeople don't get afraid to talk to the customer just because you are in management.
