    KB Home great company but needs help in Atlanta Market

    Oct 4, 2008 - New Home Sales Associate in Atlanta, GA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    KB Home has a very good track record in business and manages the company well. They provide incentives to sell, vacations and CASH as a way to motivate. The on job training was absolutely fabulous when I began with the company. Plenty of role playing and continuous on line classes to stay on top of the game in the business. They continuously involved the agents with realtors and rewards to draw them into the communities.

    Cons

    The Atlanta market had many changes in the past couple years. They opened communities for sales agents and without telling them of what is to come, closes them down. The agent is left to inform the buyers of the changes. They have long hours with sales promotion weekends beginning from 10am-midnight, expect to stay. Movement of agents just when you start to sell, move you to another community. Which removes you from a large portion of the commission. Safety, was never top priority. Security systems that were not paid for, to save costs.

    KB-Great Company- LONG HOURS

    Jan 28, 2016 - New Home Sales Consultant in San Antonio, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great training program, most of the management team is understanding and helpful. Great company benefits...Health care was top notch! You have the opportunity to make a ton of money.

    Cons

    You really never have a day off. You are glued to your phone dealing with issues that arise on your days off and on vacation. Absolutely no work/familylife balance. Plan on working every holiday except Christmas and Thanksgiving. Long hours! Most offices are 2-3 man shops so you are constantly having to fight for leads.

    Professional yet deceitful.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Beautiful work environment. New studio. Company training modules. Nice base.

    Cons

    During interview working conditions were not disclosed. Very stressful environment due to passive agressive and petty asst mgr. Unfair scheduling tactics and bonus system EGREGIOUSLY unfair to consultants. Loyalty and contributions mean nothing when your experince is diminshed in favor of younger, inexperienced employees and studio admin is coddled and collusion is mandated --and rewarded.
