      I worked at Perry Homes full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Money is good They act like you are important at first but they really do not care about you.

      Cons

      Long hours, frown about you taking any time off. Management comes from construction so they dont know sales process like they should.

      I have been working at Perry Homes full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Direct path to advance that is clear and attainable for those that work hard. This is a career that can provide a good living. I’ve had months were my bonus was over 10k, and that’s on top of a 5k salary. In a good neighborhood bonus typically averages 2-3k for a phase I.

      Cons

      It’s necessary to work half a day most Saturdays when you start. Once you become efficient at the job, you can typically get everything done during the week. There’s a lot of stress, especially at the beginning because you might not know what your doing. The first year you’ll work long hours. Once you get the system down, it becomes easier and much less stressful.

      Advice to Management

      Install French drains and build it into the price. It’ll pay for itself.

      Company offers growth and stability. This is a goal oriented company with a great reputation.

      Cons

      Some systems and processes are outdated, however, management is open to new ideas and change. It is only going to get better as time goes on and it's already a great place to work. I could only imagine how it will be in years to come. I am excited to see what is in store for the future at Perry Homes.
