    Pros

    Great benefits package, discount stock purchase, discount home purchase, bonuses paid quarterly

    Cons

    Bonus amount never reached the level that was promised at initial hire. It is "discretionary" but there is a formula but it is never explained by division president They pay cheap in comparison to competitors No communication from division president on future work load Hostile work environment caused by division president(s) HR is petrified about reprimanding poor or negligent performers at non-exempt level which puts the manager in a bad position when company projections are not met No annual employee reviews or wage increases One of my subordinates told me that most of the staff felt like senior management did not care about our group White people work in management and people of color work in the field and although there has been inclusion discussion at the highest level of the company it has not changed anything at division levels

    A truly great company

    Oct 25, 2022 - Sales Representative 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I feel like this company really enriched my life. It pulled things out of me that I always knew were there but had been to afraid to bring out on my own. Not to mention, the income potential led me to making the most money I had ever made.

    Cons

    It's sales so the hours and days I worked weren't always my favorite.

    Pros

    This company was foreword thinking, proactive in the marketplace and created their own marketing niche. They pushed employees hard and expected results. Good pay and benefits with a solid reputation.

    Cons

    Management philosophy changed from backing the employees to treating them as replaceable non-entities. Loyalty vanished and accounting took over with little consideration for excellent productivity and past and current performance. New management cut 15 days vacation to 10 days and counted sick days as a “vacation” day.

    Great money!

    Jul 29, 2022 - Real Estate Sales Representative in Orlando, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This job changed my life and brought me to a new financial level. You can make a 6 figure income in commission annually without investing any of your own money to marketing or getting leads. Benefits, medical insurance, 401 K plan, opportunity to buy company's stocks with a discount, they pay your Real estate annual fees, they pay for your marketing and networking events, they reimburse all your lunches and other goodies you bring to Realtors to market them, so outside Realtors bring you leads.

    Cons

    it's hard. no days off. Even if you are officially off, you'll be working either from home or having showings or doing networking events that are in most cases mandatory. it's not just sitting in the model home and selling homes to walk-ins.... LOL it's a LOT of networking and marketing outside Realtors to bring you leads. Most top outside Realtors are being very loyal to particular D. R. Horton agents who've been with the company longer. Sales quotas: if you don't meet the quota, you have a couple of chances to get better and start selling more. They give you time to get used to the new position though and give you time to start selling more.

    Great company with room for improvement

    Aug 26, 2022 - Sales Agent 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great company to work for with a very rewarding income potential. Some managers are great, good pay structure and draw.

    Cons

    Benefits are not great because it’s a high cap insurance so it’s like having no insurance unless you have a big health issue, PTO for a sales job shouldn’t be so low in my opinion because you make what you work for, the commission structure for sales agents it’s ok but should definitely improve since sales agents do a lot more than buyer agents (marketing, outreach, transaction coordinator, closing coordinator and sometimes even lender coordinator) also the pressure for lender cap is uncomfortable. The metrics for how good of a sales agent is shouldn’t be based on prefer lender retention (that should fall on the lender) while completely disregarding the production $$ category we’re sales agents not lender agents.
