    Pros

    I liked that they were wiling to train you and help you succeed in your career. Even with no prior home building experience, I was promoted 3 times in 4 years.

    Cons

    Not sure if this is really a con, but given the nature of the industry, 50-60 hour weeks were the norm. Had to put in long hours to get everything done.

    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.

    Pros

    The strucutured selling training was excellent and by far the best part about the whole experience. Great place to learn if you want to get started in the business.

    Cons

    Long hours go with the job. Management's focus was on gross sales numbers; write the contract and see what sticks.

    SALESPEOPLE BEWARE

    Oct 4, 2008 - New Home Sales Associate in Irvine, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company does seem to strive to satisfy it's 'external' clientele. I never had an experience where a customer's legitimate complaint or concerned was not addressed and remedied. The incredible disconnect between this mode of operation and the obvious lack of concern for employees is baffling.

    Cons

    A horrible environment for sales people. Long hours and absolutely no concern for an employees desire to balance or even have a personal life. Senior management is openly hostile towards salespeople and would certainly replace them with robots if the opportunity existed. It is an exhausting place to work.
