    I have been working at New Home Star full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company does everything and anything to set you up for success. New Home Star is the most employee focused company I have ever worked for. If you have ever asked yourself "why can't my job appreciate my hard work?" or "Why will my job not help me get ahead?" then this is the job for you! They will always put you first and appreciate everything you do. There is plenty of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    This is a job that with great reward comes great responsibility. If you are not driven to work hard then this isn't the job for you. Every employee at New Home Star will tell you that this company will change your life but you have to earn it as well. I promise you will not regret it.

    I have been working at New Home Star full-time

    Pros

    I've been in this industry for a while. The training that I am currently receiving is world-class. I love the team-oriented culture. It is much better than the "being on an island by myself" that I experienced elsewhere. I love my team!

    Cons

    As of right now, no cons. New Home Star is a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your new hires and leaders. Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at New Home Star full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You end up working with very nice and caring people and make good friendships but it is hard to make money

    Cons

    It all depends on which management you end up with. The promise of making $100,000 per year is not true

    Advice to Management

    Hire consistent managers that follow and believe in your system

    I have been working at New Home Star full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Finding New Home Star was a complete and total life changer for me. The support, leadership and personal development this company provides is more than I ever could have asked for. From my first day of work, I could tell this company truly cares about their employees and is invested in their success. They are the reason I am now a licensed real estate agent and the training program gives you all of the skills and knowledge needed to be successful. I love my job and would not change anything about it. I highly recommend taking this once in a life time opportunity.

    Cons

    You will got out as much as you put in, so self management and motivation are key factors for success. It is a 1099 position without health benefit so be ready to manage your money and save for taxes. It is well worth it and you will not regret it!

    Pros

    Excellent team environment, very supportive leadership, easy access to resources that may be needed.

    Cons

    The only negative I could ever say or imagine saying is the fact that we have such an awesome overall cast of a workforce and we only get to meet everyone once or maybe twice a year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you've been doing. This job and company is the best thing thats ever happened to me in my lifetime!

    Pros

    If you hope to never need to do a job search again, consider New Home Star. You can see in all of these ratings the culture is strong. The company goal to provide great careers is real. The opportunities to grow, learn and explore are countless. The ability to move to another area of our country if you wish and stay with New Home Star is unique. Hold your hat it is a wild and wonderful ride with countless opportunities and unwaivering support.

    Cons

    The only cons can be tied to job fit. Be sure your behaviorial traits and goals align with being part of a fast pace, driven toward ongoing improvement, challenging and competitive team.

    Advice to Management

    It is great to see this leadership team continue to train and push themselves. Keep it up!
