Current Employee - New Home Sales Counselor in Houston, TX
Current Employee - New Home Sales Counselor in Houston, TX

No opinion of CEO

Pros

-Great potential income
-You get a draw check when you have no closings (caps at 10K)
-usualy laid back place to work

Cons

You dont get paid any commision up front, so you can starve until closing.

You will not recieve the hot communities to sell in unless your close with the district manager

You will be treated like a child ( it is not uncommon for your DM to call your appointments to make sure your not making them up, then your buyer comes in wondering why your boss was checking on you)

You will be required to attend "Call A Thons" where you drive to corporate with all of your reg cards so they can listen and make sure your actually calling your buyers.

VERY POLITICAL ENVIROMENT

Get used to being the badguy as you watch shady practices be used on buyers (EX: two of your buyers family members get killed in a natural disaster overseas and even though construction has not begun on his home you are told to not give him back his earnest money.)

Advice to Management

Quit and let more inteligent people fill your roles.

    Pros

    KB Home is at the forefront of the home building industry- if you are going to work in this industry, make it with KB. Great "Green" initiative, large corporation but intimate environment, executives treat the little people as one of them.

    Cons

    Business is slow these days, but that's probably temporary. Few windows and harsh lighting in some areas of the building.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints here whatsoever. Thank you for treating us like humans.

    Pros

    There are some very small rewards but the cons outweigh the pros

    Cons

    Lots, forget about your family life, KB will be your life. Favoritism, lack of respect for its sales force. Promotes an unhealthy working environment amongst sales partners.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales people, take them seriously, show respect, consideration and true appreciation. Cut the favoritism and the back stabbing, be honest with them and adequate compensation for hard work and show loyalty to your people.
