    I have been working at Grand Homes Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great product to sell, easy process and technology to learn. Tons of training and assistance. Great living to be made.

    Cons

    Some of the training doesn't really correlate to whats happening in the field. They do not close at 6:00 during winter hours like other builders, it can be a bit dangerous.

    Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate your honestly and integrity! Real Estate in general has long hours - it does take perseverance and dedication to sell homes - new or used! So glad to have you on our team!

    Pros

    loyalty to employees. I appreciate the training over the years and the opportunities to grow in my department. 401k match is good. Many long term employees with experience. I enjoy coming to work every day.

    Cons

    health insurance rates for a family seem high even after the company's contribution.

    I worked at Grand Homes Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, Room to Grow, Beautiful Floor Plans, Great People

    Cons

    Long hours, Be prepared to deal with long periods of time between paychecks since homes take months to build, high stress and constant pressure to make sales goals, you get what you put in to the job, you have to be very resilient and be thick skinned.

    Pros

    Great commitment to sales training

    There seems to be a high turnover rate among the sales ranks. You have to be committed to work hard, but if you do it is very rewarding.

    "Never seen a more dysfunctional management team in my life. If you value your family or morals run away!"

    I have been working at Grand Homes Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nothing, Salary is average and bonuses are unrealistic due to poor management.

    Cons

    Management from the bottom up is terrible, you will realize taking this job was a mistake after your first “builder training” if that’s not enough to make you regret your decision then give it time. Cause if you care more about your family, morals, health, or anything more than their narrow minded vision. You will find yourself where I did a year down the road questioning how I made such a bad decision trusting what I knew was lies the whole time

    I worked at Grand Homes Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Independent work environment. Phone allowance for the iPad they provide.

    Cons

    Was told I would receive training based off the builder training checklist. The checklist was to be completed and turned back in to corporate. That never happened. The on boarding process did not happen the way I was told it would. The production manager kept saying he would meet up with me to teach me the ropes. That didn't happen as promised. Not to be a victim or shun responsibility, I wasn't setup for success from the get-go.
