    I worked at Mercedes Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mercedes Homes inc takes pride in the home building home buying process. Mercedes Homes Inc wants every home owner to feel 100% satisfaction with their purchase

    Cons

    There seemed to be a large number of lengthy meetings each week that sometimes conflicted with scheduling arrangements when sub contractors needed to coordinate service times with homeowners.

    Advice to Management

    Less meetings or more one on one community specific meetings with on-site coordinators

    Incompetent management. Infighting among sales staff was ignored. Caps on sales hindered income potential.

    Corporate should monitor it's divisions more closely.

    Pros

    Leave you alone single man office

    Cons

    too long to start a home and too long to close a home. Not able to compete on land with other builders due to the B word.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck. You need specs and good land possitions to compete out there. Pay half commision on to be builts to your sales or they will be so far in draw before one closing happens with the amount of time it takes to close a home.
