    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.

    Pros

    Great training program, 401k, uniforms.

    Cons

    The compensation not equal to responsibility. Sales reps are responsible for generating almost all of their own traffic, getting all needed documents for home loan counselor, calling buyers to check on loan status, scheduling all appointments from contract to close. The only holidays the sales offices are closed is Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day and New years day. Management only communicates to ask how many sales you have for the week and if you don't have any, they don't care enough to ask why. They somehow overlook the dishonest sales reps, because as long as they are making sales, KB doesn't care WHAT the sales rep lied to the buyer about, as it is clearly stated in the contract that they can not be held liable for anything that the sales rep said. The employees talk trash about each other, sales managers talk trash about sales reps in front of other sales reps(from different properties).
