    Pros

    - Very supportive Customer Service VP.
    - Great benefits & bonuses.
    - The people are great.
    - You learn a lot about building a house.
    - Limited manpower! You'll most likely get offered more money by a recruiter.

    Cons

    - Hostile Work Environment, everyone in senior management yells and cusses at each other.
    - The Customer Service VP is constantly stream rolled by the other VP's because they're in it for profit and commission.
    - This is America's largest builder because it's the fastest. Quality has gone out the window, and Warranty cleans up the mess.
    - Severely unreliable trades; never show when they're scheduled, and when they do show they just point fingers at each other.
    - Limited Manpower! Your trades will most likely get poached by an on site recruiter.
    - Ancient technology serves finance side of things. Company relies heavily on FAX and Email.
    - Absolutely no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Try finishing building your homes. Seriously. Finish those Orientation lists. Your Warranty Reps would work much harder and actually trust management if they didn't feel like they were constantly thrown under the bus.

    I have been working at D.R. Horton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefit program, 401k, and many locations to transfer.

    Cons

    Pay is determined by community you work (commission only), no loyalty to employees due to high management turnover, several reports to be completed every week, back office is a mess and will cause you to lose sales on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to ensure managers stay with company and do not announce when you are coming to visit if you want to observe how divisions are truly being run.

    Pros

    I worked at D.R. Horton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plan out a community and get to meet great home buyers.

    Cons

    They reduced pay, work very long hours, upper management don't know what they are doing and it is all about looks. Once you sell a lot they will fire you to keep your commission.

    Advice to Management

    Take training and a day in the Sales Consultant position. Don't be liars. Corporate management, stop letting your regional managers ruin the company and company name.

    Pros

    Good pay if you can wait it out. They allow you to share commissions with other agents if you worked together ( corporate frowns upon this)

    Cons

    Little to no training, Management was a joke, they don't care if you steal buyers from your co-workers, Too little time off (you are expected to market 2-3 hours before your work shift, work 8 hours and still attend corporate meetings after work).

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together, train your managers to lead people, instead of only being concerned about their bonus

    I worked at D.R. Horton full-time

    Pros

    Large company with lots of benefits and perks

    Cons

    They don't control their starts. Be prepared to have 30-60 homes under construction simultaneously. Whatever they can get permitted in your community they will release no matter if you're the only super for that area/community or not. They have no problem overloading their supers to a stressful breaking point. No Warranty Dept whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Even-flow your starts and if you're going to be controlled by shareholders and just want more, more, more, make sure you have both the Construction and Warranty manpower.
