    Pros

    Good company with a really solid foundation

    Cons

    They do a draft which really gets some employees in a deep hole to start with.

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

    Pros

    I've been associated with the retail division of Clayton Homes for over 20 years and they are currently the most innovative company in the business of manufactured housing. There is no other company in this business I would rather work for.

    Cons

    In retail the hours and multifaceted aspects of the job can be demanding. The number of hats a manager wears seems endless as we essentially operate shallowly staffed "mom and pop" locations.

    There is no college reimbursement available for retail employees yet there is for corporate office employees. Also corporate office employees get specific holidays off while retail employees in the field do not. It would be nice to see mutual respect for retail employees to get something similar even if it is not the same days off.

    Advice to Management

    As a manager, I would like to see salespersons comp better from the start instead of there being a year of hard work to graduate to a higher pay comp. As an employee I would like to see a stronger 401k match and better benefits and an equity reward for xx number of years of tenure that increases and gets better with time. This would encourage others to stick with this career for much longer.

    Pros

    Good ideas and lots of opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Upper management is not versed in digital marketing, so it can be difficult to justify and gets action approved for the department.

    Advice to Management

    Better education about the world of digital marketing for upper management.

    I worked at Clayton Homes (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my case, employment with Clayton was highly rewarding on both a work and a very personal level. The people I worked with for 2+ years were engaging, capable, dedicated and personable. I enjoyed my work and my team and it was wonderful to see how we 'gelled' and met our goals.

    The bonus program that allows everyone to benefit from the company's hard work was a great benefit. Investment in their employees, work/life balance makes them an employer of choice in the community.

    Cons

    I didn't experience anything at Clayton that I would qualify as a 'con'. Clayton is like most companies in that there are always situations / restructurings that occur during the course of any work relationship - it's up to you how you handle it.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Clayton Homes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have nothing positive to say about this place. One of the worst jobs I've ever had.

    Cons

    You have absolutely no freedom to be an individual. You are constantly monitored and cannot even make a small joke without having to talk to HR. There is no "Team atmosphere" like they love to claim, everyone is out for themselves and will gladly throw you under the bus if they think it will be helpful to them.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management would be to let up a little. Don't come down on peiple so hard for the tiniest thing. It makes almost all your employees unhappy.
