    I worked at KB Home full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers and I agree with other people who reviewed this company, management were nice people but NO training. Benefits were very decent. Quarterly days off for offsite meetings and usually very fun.!! (bowling, golfing)

    Cons

    NO TRAINING. Many sales people sold homes to customer only to have to go back and tell the customer the home they choose does not fit on the lot they bought and THE CUSTOMER would have to pay more for the correct lot. The companies computer would allow salespeople to add options they AFTER the customer paid a deposit they were told the options are not available but they still have to buy the home or lose their deposit. When people complain about the training management tell them to stop complaining and "Just sell houses"

    Advice to Management

    Provide adequate training. Listen to employees complaints, sometimes they are legitimate and maybe there will not be so much turn-over. That being said, management are nice to work for, decent personalities.
