    I worked at New Home Star full-time

    Pros

    This place is overall a great place to work, and the leadership truly shows that they care. Their unique social platform allows you to learn, and connect with everyone around the states. The training is second to none, and will set you up to be successful. The culture is professional, yet they know how to have fun, and make it a good time. If you earn the opportunity, you can certainly make a lot of money, and a great living.

    Cons

    This position holds a heavy amount of responsibility. Things can be very stressful, with many things that are just out of your control. If the account builder does not have any opportunities for you, you can find yourself sitting, and waiting for an opportunity to arise, which mentally beats up someone that is just ready to sell. Even after the opportunity comes to sell in a community, you are at the mercy of how productive the builder will be. Which will determine how, and when you get paid. This line of work is truly hit or miss. If you are fortunate enough to work for a reputable builder under NHS, and you are in a growing community, you will be set up very well. If not, then you can grind, and grind until your time comes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, and I know the future will continue to look bright. Find builders that hold themselves to a higher standard, and represent the same culture, and values.

    Pros

    Caring Leaders
    Endless opportunity
    Excellent training
    Continuous improvement
    Technologically advanced

    Cons

    Honestly I have not ran into anything at this point that is a con. Like any company there are struggles, I will see as time progress but I am sure they will never outweigh the pros.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The culture that has been created here is rare. We must all work hard to keep it up and we must never stop improving.

    I have been working at New Home Star full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I feel compelled to reply to a review that was left on Oct 24th that had some INCREDIBLY mis-leading information in it.

    Virtually every single thing said in the review I could pick apart about how it inaccurate it is, but the main thing that really hit a sore spot with me was that New Home Star just "dangles bring shiny false dreams in front of millennials".

    Well, as a millennial that had a bright shiny dream dangled in front of my face (in a time when I didn't want to believe that it was true as my builder was converting to New Home Star's services after I'd worked for that builder for almost 3 years) it was NOT a false dream! I can also speak for the multiple other members of our team here that had bring shiny dreams dangled in front of their face and that put in a ton of hard work and are also living that dream.

    For anyone reading these reviews and maybe questioning if New Home Star is the right place, I would challenge you to reach out to the manager for the position that you're interested in, I'm willing to bet that they'd be willing to answer some questions and meet with you to further discussing this amazing organization and everything it has to offer, and you decide for yourself what your gut tells you.

    Cons

    The only "con" is that there is a LOT of hard work needed to accomplish those dreams (but what job isn't there) and there's accountability (but isn't that a good thing if you're doing your job?). So if you're ok with working hard and ok with being held accountable to your goals that you set and the expectations for the job, then disregard!

    Advice to Management

    This is something that is already happening, but always strive to continue getting better and be open to HONEST feedback (unlike the review from a few days ago) that can help the organization grow. There's always bad apples that run the risk of ruining it for everyone by being dishonest in their reviews or what they're posting on social sites like this, but there's plenty out there who have real and honest feedback, and we should continue to learn and grow from it, like we have been!
