Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Not necessary to have a college degree to advance within the company; a lot of training offered throughout the company.

Cons

Difficult to predict when you would be expected to work long hours as mid level management. Was expected to stay 16-18 hour days if GM or PM was angry with production.

Advice to Management

Stop the management merry-go-round and let your production staff solve their own issues and take ownership of their product, good or bad.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Solid Corporate Structure
    Good Communication from Corporate Office
    Freindly People from the Knoxville, Tennessee area (Corporate HQ)

    Cons

    Each sales center operates as the manager sees fit, regardless of his experience and management style
    Home centers away from Tenneesee area are treated differently than those in the south
    Pay should be based partially on locale. West Coast is WAY more expensive to live than rural Tennessee or Kentucky.
    Poor home center managers are left alone to manage poorly as long as sales figures are being met.
    "Home Consultants" should not have to adopt a used car salesman mentality. We could sell cars and get paid more quickly.
    The draw system of pay sucks, especially when the economy slows down and sales drop off. A base bay plus comission structure woud be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the used car salesman mentality and allow people with good sales and personal interaction skills to shine and act in a way that works for them.
    Promote good, young employees and let poor sales center managers leave.
    Remember that certain areas of the country differ from the south. Customers in Washington, Oregon and California (for example) expect to be treated differently than "trailer lots" in the south.
