    I have been working at Grand Homes Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company builds a fantastic product and their training and support are unmatched. I came from another Builder who was a disaster. Grand has their act together and they support their employees

    Cons

    There aren't any cons. This is Sales and in Sales you have to hustle and be able to support the needs of the company and your Buyer

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing exactly what you are doing.

    I worked at Grand Homes Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice exterior elevations, great land positions.

    Cons

    They turned over 100 salespeople in a calendar year when I was there. That SHOULD say it all, but it doesn’t come close. I don’t even have them on my resume. Not a place for a sales professional to work. Pay attention to the negative reviews. Most of them are on point.

    Micromanagement, management has a tendency to promote under qualified individuals and leave the employees who strive well in the field to make them look better.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire them to do a job, trust in them to do it.

    Pros

    Great Bonus! Good commission rate; good benefits, support, training; good seminars, some meetings are actually informative and constructive;

    Cons

    Ongoing and going on and on training, repetitive training. Every week some kind of training meeting to take you away from model/sales or your day off (which you need). High turn over. more professionalism at corporate needed in attire, language, gossip, drama among office staff, sales and management,

    Advice to Management

    Refreshed and rejuvinated, rested salespersons produce and give the best results. Salespeople some were and are brow beaten by management/ owner. Contract process needs change. New change. After contract process is exhausting. Taking contract to corp; sitting, waiting, sometimes for hours to get a contract executed. (did I mention waiting, waiting, zzzzzz) waste of time to sit there 1/2 day for contract to be executed (or not); or approved when it should be your division manager who should get your contract approved so you can move on. Some changes in management needed; management should promote from within. Division managers should not be salespersons! what's up with that?

    I worked at Grand Homes Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Bonus structure; great % rate when total commission. Pay each 1/3 during build process rather than wait to the end at closing to get paid.

    Cons

    Hmmm. favoritism; constant change for a sales person to a new community at a whim without notice. No explanation as to why. Lots of turn over; however that is due to a productive status. This is a productive based employment

    Advice to Management

    Management, owners, need to understand that their employees have lives outside work. Constant meetings, constant training. Training should be different from the new hires than the senior sales persons who have paid their dues.
     Award sales people with a weekend off at least quarterly when performance is exceptional. Hire back assistants to give the sales person a break. On going training, seminars are great, however, repetitive, repetitive, repetitive.
     There is no price for peace. I had a wonderful experience, this time with this company, made a very nice living; great 401K; great incentive, when you achieve your goals. Management should keep their positions professional and not get personally involved in sales persons personal life. Some managers it is definitely time to retire. They have old habits of sales techniques and constant repetitive meetings. Sales Persons need to be acknowledged, not favored, answer and make commitments to achieve goals, encourage and provide help when needed. Not personally involved.
