      Terrible All Around

      Apr 1, 2021 - Junior Sales Representative in Conroe, TX

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Employee discount on homes after certain amount of time working there - Big Salary if you want to have no life - Easy to sell

      Cons

      - Culture is awful. It's sales so be prepared to work with two faced people who will do anything to beat you in commissions - Coworkers are trashy and uneducated - Corporate events are drunk fests - Terrible Management; they were distant and unhelpful. They often seemed like they were trying to find ways to write up employees. Treated us like numbers and not people - LONG Hours, required to work until the sun goes down (You basically will never have time off even on your "off days") - You will never really have time for your family, kids, friends, etc. outside of work - Backlog is very extensive - Commute is long most days in training (average of an hour drive to the neighborhood). Neighborhoods are very spread out and in the middle of nowhere - Only one Saturday off of work every 6 months - Training salary is extremely low (roughly $13 / hour) - No structure to training, very much sink or swim - They live by "the customer is always right" even if the customer is completely in the wrong and verbally attacks you (happens often) - Customers will treat you like their servants and expect you to bend over backwards constantly even when they have unreasonable requests During COVID: - Management did not enforce any employees to wear masks even though there were multiple outbreaks in the office frequently - Management kept outbreaks a secret from sales reps out in the field

      Pros

      D.R. Horton is the industry giant for new home construction. Having that backing with the amazing management the Greenville division has makes for a perfect work family environment. Income is as much as you put it. They give you all the tools to break a six figure income. Highly recommend this company if you are thinking of the new home sales industry

      Cons

      Hours are not ideal to work.. just like any job you'll have bad coworkers

      Pros

      Great benefits. Work/life balance. Laid back environment.

      Cons

      No training. They pretty much sit you at a desk and tell you to figure it out. All ideas are null and void as they feel they know what they’re doing even if they don’t have the numbers to show it. Management on a regional level is not on the same page as corporate and corporate is so far removed from how the real world works its insane. I’ve personally never been with a company as large as them and so disorganized.
