    Pros

    Some wonderful people to interact and even work with.

    Cons

    Far behind in technology; poor, insecure practices that should've been addressed a decade ago. In some groups, personality and rank drives some baffling decisions where input is neither solicited nor respected.

    Advice to Management

    Outsource IT

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

    Pros

    Meet great clients, can make more than the CEO as long as you keep your pipeline going, can put great people in great homes, never a dull moment, can make company trips, win gift cards with fun contests. Sales process class is great

    Cons

    hours are horrible, only 1 day off per week. Senior management acts concerned about what goes on in the sales level but just tells store manager to make the problems go away. Store manager stays drunk and barely comes to work so our sales manager is actually doing the job of manager, insurance is horrible. we cannot have bariatric surgery coverage. This is not understandable on many levels as we are the ones that keep this company going. Without a healthy sales staff, there would be no Clayton Homes. Managers forewarn each other when auditor is in town and when Senior management is in town as well.

    Advice to Management

    relook insurance to add weight loss surgery, get some undercover people to come in to check on managers,

    Pros

    You are helping families own their own home.

    Cons

    This company has a hard time keeping their promises to customers even though they drill it in they will always do the right thing. They make the customers wait far to long without resolution and make the sales team seem like liars for making the promises.

    Advice to Management

    Take care if your customers quickly and accurately everytime! Small town areas do really shop for products and they will not stand for being taken advantage of no matter how wonderful and expensive your product is.

    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.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    The hood thing about working here is that you can get off when you need to.

    Cons

    No business half the week we could go without having one customer. The GM does not get in a hurry to submit your applications for customer houses to the bank.
    The money is not as good as they promise because not many customers show up

    Advice to Management

    Hire a new general manager, one who will push to get there employees apps approved

    Cons

    Upper management is not where it needs to be and at scale does not match surrounding area need a lot of work done to machines but don't allow maintenance or the mechanics time to provide it.

    Advice to Management

    Re evaluate pay scale and cost of living.
