      Pros

      Good luck trying to find some

      Cons

      When you get hired you are fed lies about how amazing the company is, how questions are welcome and everyone is there to help no matter what. I learned none of that is true, it was like survival of the fittest. You are expected to learn and do EVERYTHING on your own with no assistance. This was the worst, inhumane, cruel, malicious, and HORRIBLE work environment I have ever worked in, there are not enough words to...

      Pros

      Not a single one I can think of.

      Cons

      Besides being the worst, cheapest home builder the atmosphere sucks here. The use T-ply for exterior sheathing. Which for people who don’t know that’s a fancy cardboard. Once you start working there you really realize how bad of homes they build. Then the atmosphere in the company sucks. They are currently in the works to create a team to help with retention of employees. That’s how quick people leave here. If you look...

      Pros

      Health insurance plans are affordable Mileage reimbursement

      Cons

      The office culture is toxic. Management is click-y and there is a lot of bad-talking/gossiping about customers. On an almost daily basis employees either internal operations or in the design center make judgmental comments towards customers. The negativity spreads like poison throughout the office. Company is currently working on a much-needed retention plan because employees keep leaving. They hire left and right and...

      I have been working at Fischer Homes

      Pros

      Great management Solid Product Beautiful Homes Not a bad place to start, but in sales this is a stepping stone company.

      Cons

      22 sells counselors selling 300 homes a year. Other companies MI (20 doing 600) Rockford (9 doing 300) Fischer Homes hires to many counselors, this floods the sales floor and makes us earn about half of what our bigger competitors earn

      Advice to Management

      Quality over quantity, there is a reason our #1 sales counselor company wide in 2017 is now working for MI. Also get rid of the pod system and let us cross sell, who thought of that?
