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

    Pros

    There are no Pros that I can speak of.

    Cons

    Everything that are the reviews say is true I worked through a temp agency and was there for 2 years and like you said when they found it that I was not convenient they got rid of me there's lots of inappropriate behavior the CEO yells and screams and cusses at the employees and people throw chairs they do favoritism they rarely do anything in person everything is done like they said in emails and faxes it really is ridiculous place to work for I'm surprised it's still going the houses are very cheaply made there's lots of phone calls to the corporate office about things that are happening with houses that are only one or two years old. I'm giving zero stars for everything.

    Advice to Management

    Act more professional

    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.

    I worked at D.R. Horton full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, great opportunity to learn a lot about the home building business. Quality home builders.

    Cons

    Long hours, low morale and lack of support from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees. Stay up to date on performance reviews, discuss future goals and growth in the company. Acknowledge and appreciate their job performance so you can build a winning, motivated team. A manager is only as good as their employee's.

    Pros

    Great company, was impressed until someone who had no clue ran it.... over

    Cons

    Company sent a woman to manage with no experience and let's just say it was the worst! If you kiss butt and you are good. No prior experience and the whole sales team was affected and probably still is! Because you can't fix stupid

    Advice to Management

    Hire a broker that is going to manage and up lift your team not bring them down. Not lie on them and make them look bad every chance! Doesn't even do her proper paperwork for state compliance.

    I worked at D.R. Horton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits are better than some companies out there. Reasonably priced for health, vision, and dental. 401k and life insurance available.

    Cons

    Management rewards sucking up rather than job performance. If you kiss up to the right person, your job performance won't matter.

    Advice to Management

    Hire executives and managers that are more concerned with being good bosses than in getting their egos stroked. Nepotism is also strong in this company.

    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

    A lot of houses to sell. That is about it.

    Cons

    A lot of inferior people in management to put up with. No one knows what they are doing. They hire inexperienced management and administrative employees. Everyone that was good at their job has left or been fired. DRH has no loyalty to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to look and see what was working compared to what is NOT working. Mid level management lacks education. Watch what is happening behind your back. Pay attention.
