    Pros

    Great culture with continued growth and dedication to our team members. We strive to provide the best experience possible to all of our internal and external customers.

    Cons

    I have been here for 18 years and have not experienced a down side to this company. We were able to still remain profitable thru the housing crash of 2008 and continue to grow in all areas. We are dedicated to building happiness, one home at a time.

    Our leadership is dedicated to growth and team member fulfilment. Continue to make our team member and customers the focus of our business.

    I have been working at Clayton Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family Oriented - great benefits - great opportunities - great values

    I have been with Clayton for two years and was a contractor for them before that. I work at Corporate in Maryville, TN as a Computer Analyst.

    Just like any company there is some office politics but all in all, I feel the company genuinely care about its employees. I have had several different managers in the past two+ years and with the training that they all go through I have never had a horrible one. I have never had a problem with letting the manager know if I have a work related issue. We have always been able to work through them.

    I also feel that Clayton believes in what they do. I do believe that they want to see customers in homes and does not leave the customer after the purchase is over.

    The benefits are great, their benefits rate up there as one of the better ones that I have had, even in this day and age.

    Cons

    There is office politics with every job and this isn't any different. Although, I am not usually affected by the politics, I know they go on.

    90 days before benefits kick in, this includes PTO. I understand this is common but it is the first time I have ever had to deal with it.

    Pros

    Possibility to really make some money. Good incentive trips.

    Cons

    Long hours, had to clean and move a lot of furniture between houses.


  10. "Experience"

    I have been working at Clayton Homes full-time

    Pros

    The company is what you make it. It is a great company owned by Warren Buffett who takes care his employees. As long as the salesman are selling homes your job security is good.

    Cons

    The hardest part of the job is just trying to get a customer to visit a home center when they are unsure if what we offer is the right fit

    Advice to Management

    Experience with management was positive and the room for growth and opportunity for advancement are present. Culture was well defined in the workplace
