    I worked at K. Hovnanian Homes full-time

    Pros

    Paycheck clears every 2 weeks

    Cons

    Days were too long, even as a salaried employee.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the broken systems in the build on your own lot division. Actually do some research and learn what it costs you to build the home.

    I have been working at K. Hovnanian Homes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Upper management believe in giving back to employees for working hard. A few hours paid time off before every company recognized national holiday. Paid lunches just because. Lunch with the CEO once a year just to name a few.

    Cons

    If lower management does not like you your career will go no where and they will constantly write you up for things they may or may not talk to others about and always have you on pins and needles wondering is this the day they are going to terminate me. Other managers know it and just look the other way.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally if your going to be a true EEOC

    Pros

    There is no good reason to work K. Hovnanian Homes

    Cons

    Management does not give hourly employees respect. They only support the supervisors. It does not matter how hard you work and give your time without any acknowledgement from management. The supervisors are back stabbers and when they fell threaten by your work performance, they find away to get rid of you. I was there for 4 years and I seen a lot of hardworking hourly employees let go or they quit.

    Advice to Management

    The 4 years that I worked there I only seen 2 people get promoted to a supervisor. Their choose was the brown noser's.

    Pros

    Free coffee, some really great coworkers, a paycheck. Best advice: if you are lazy, become friends with VP's and HR so your antics will be swept under the rug.

    Cons

    High turn over. Trouble hiring quality employees. So many good employees chased out of the company. So many good trades chased away. This place is for you if you enjoy working in a drama filled office. Negative emotions, mean girls/guys, petty rule making for kicks, falsifying work and information.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing can be written here that you don't already know.

    Pros

    They work hard to get the newest technology to help do your job. Good PTO and personal days.

    Cons

    Upper management fails to listen to the people below them or choose not to listen to certain ones (very clicky). Behind on the times with other builders around them. They also fail to change any designs or implement new designs or options that homeowners ask for.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times and look at the other local builders around you and see how they are progressing ahead of a nationwide company.
