    Pros

    Lets be clear, in sales RAH has surpassed every expectation. The Company culture is not only understanding of "Sales" and the 'Sales" process, but they give you every tool to be successful. From detailed training, sales systems and aids, to management and their accessibility. Earning potential is strong. The market research and competitive advantages are tangible. There's truly is no ceiling on your earning potential, amazing.

    Cons

    Its not so much a downside as a commitment. Weekends are the busy days. So weekends are work days.

    Advice to Management

    The fact that all management is fully committed to the success of our sales force stands alone as a reason to join the team.

    Pros

    The leadership does a really great job of pumping you up as the employee and getting you excited to be a part of the company. I cannot say enough good things about Tom Zieske specifically. It is so nice and refreshing to have an executive level manager who has a genuine interest in their employees. Tom encourages personal growth and professional growth and is always available for guidance and support when you need it. The company benefits, outings, events, etc. are just the cherry on top for what has been the best professional year of my career.

    Cons

    If there is a problem employee that several people have had complaints against it is still very difficult to see any change or for that person to be terminated.

    Pros

    Coming from a small family builder to Richmond American Homes I was expecting a totally different atmosphere. I was planning on just being a number in a sea of people lost in a traditional corporate atmosphere. I couldn't have been more wrong! They have an amazing training program! The day I started out in the field I had all the tools needed to blend in with other associates that have been here for over 15 years +. They have an excellent work-life balance and great benefits. Finding that a huge portion of other employees have been with Richmond for over 5 years was great, then you find another portion that have been here for 15 years which was amazing, and after that there is another huge portion that have been with Richmond for 20 years WOW! There is a growing number of companies that do not have the tenure that Richmond American does. Seeing that once someone starts with Richmond they stay, is huge.

    Richmond has an excellent product that backs up everything you are selling to your customer. After 200,000+ home sales it truly shows they know what they are doing and are very well at it. They strive to have an excellent culture throughout the company from head quarters to the divisions and it shows. After working in several different places this by far has been my best experience with any employer.

    Cons

    When starting with Richmond American Homes they have a slow tedious process. It is like that for a reason. Like all aspects of this company there is a process for everything and this is one of those processes. If hired on be patient, it will be very rewarding.
