Always hiring because of constant turn over
No work life balance, terrible management, prevent you from selling, will take your commission and give to new hires for “training” pay, no support, 3 or more sales people per model home.

The training program is top-notch. I thought I would be overwhelmed by the amount of information I’d need to take in when I got started, but they broke it down in a way that made it digestible and even fun. As someone who’s experienced the flipside where I was thrown into a sales job with minimal training or knowledge of the product whatsoever, I appreciate the fact that they took the time to set up such an amazing program, and I can also attribute my success with this company to the thorough preparation. All in all, it’s a good place to work and I definitely recommend it.
At the end of the day, preparation and support can only get you so far when it comes to sales. It’s challenging, but the payoff is worth it.

Amazing teammates and a very helpful training program. Good resources for continuing education in sales training
Higher corporate management is very hostile. Owner threw his wallet at sales staff during contract presentation on multiple occasions. Houses are so over priced, they almost never meet appraisal. Even at base features.Continue reading

Great looking product, excellent web site, financially sound, decent working environment. Well known within the industry, better than average sales training.
Homes are overpriced compared to the rest of the market. Level of standard features are the lowest in the industry. Endless non-productive sales meetings. Management is not receptive to input from lower levels. Deceptive pricing and promotions. Extremely, repeat, extremely high turn over in sales positions. No benefits.Continue reading

I have attended a lot of their training classes and they work really hard to motivate their sales staff. I help shop other properties to help them help the sales people do a good job. They are always offering bonuses and trips for the sales people. I have worked with them on a Habitat for Humanity house and I love the generosity they show the community.
I don't have any Cons for Grand Homes

Fun Company Culture, Great Bonuses and Rewards for Builders/Sales Associates, Great Training, Managers Care
None that I can think of. It is the home building industry so there are some seasons that are busier than others.
Thank you for your great review of Grand Homes! We're happy that you're enjoying your time with us. Have a great day!

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.

Great floor plans and designs. Good training program by sales managers if you are new to the industry. Support for sales from all departments is very good. The problem is managers have no authority to approve contracts, change orders, sales concessions, etc. due to micro-management by the owner. Even at the Division VP level any and everything must be approved by Mr. Brooks or his son if it costs money.
Serious micro-management problem. Very slow to get homes started. Some deals taking over 9 months from contract to just applying for the building permit. Then another 8-10 months to build. Way overpriced. Company wants very high margins which is good for the owner but not the commissioned sales personnel.Continue reading

To get new home sales on your resume.
Too many to list. Constantly moved from properties. Impossible to succeed. Sales training is an acting class for clown school.Continue reading

At Grand Homes we work hard and play hard. Building a home is the single most difficult thing anyone will go through. Not everyone is cut out for this industry. We are here to improve the lives of our customers. We are involved in every phase of the process and are thrilled to bring a home owner's dream come true. It's why we do this. Grand Homes is fully involved in charitable work here and abroad, building homes in Tijuana and providing microloans in underprivileged countries. We have training to help make sales people and builders successful. We have a culture committee fully committed to make a fun-loving work environment and help our employees in times of need. We have company functions like a huge formal holiday party that is second to none with sit down dinner, awards and dancing. Quarterly pep rallies with open bar and appetizers. The people and passion are what makes this company great.
This isn't just a 9 to 5. it's long hours sometimes. and it's worth it to change the lives of our home owners bringing them quality product and services. if you're in sales, you work weekends. Home office support staff are known to be at the office til 6 or 7 pm sometimes. The owner of the company is very passionate about the success of his employees and his company which can be taken in a negative connotation when he becomes extremely animated in meetings and seminars. If you're easily offended and have thin skin this may not be the place for you.Continue reading
