    Current Employee - Intern in Tempe, AZ

    I have been working at Pulte Homes part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture here is incredible. The emphasis is around having each other's back and trusting one another to get the job done the right way the first time. I truly have nothing bad to say about this company. I was welcomed with open arms and given every opportunity to succeed and learn.

    Cons

    Truly nothing bad to say, you will be treated fairly and get as much out of this place as you put into it.

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

      Pros

      Flexible schedule, Travel, exposure to executives, Team environment. The main office is new and very nice.

      Cons

      They sell you on travel to big metro cities, but you are traveling to suburbs, sometimes hours away from cities. Only allowed to stay in sub par hotels with minimum perdiem for 2 weeks at a time. Barely enough to cover normal expenses. They tell you the department is a fast track to a division role, but it is not. Director has her own agenda. Two separate instances where the director helped others in other departments...

      "Will move you to keep from paying your bonus, or raise the quota as you meet it"

      Former Employee - New Home Sales Consultant in Washington, DC
      Doesn't Recommend

      I worked at Pulte Homes full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Beautiful Model Centers, great sales managers (except that they earn their bonus off total profit. Your bonus takes away from the total profit, so they are motivated to keep you from getting what you've earned. Don't expect to stay in any community that you make successful!) Solid construction! Well built homes that they stand behind on quality.

      Cons

      I hated taking a slow moving community, making it successful, just to get moved after hitting my bonus. They also failed to pay me my bonus earned, and they raise your objectives as you reach them. They did not pay me my full commissions earned. They will cheat you out of your commission every chance they get. Avoid being a commissioned sales person for Pulte Homes. Attorney's want 15K just to take the case, so be prepared...

      Advice to Management

      PAY your experienced sales personnel. Stop cheating your employees. Earned trips should be compensation not punishment (cost of $2000+ for employee portion of expense for tax, etc., paid vacation-should be "paid" not run off of "well you're making commission so we don't compensate for time off".
