    I have been working at Richmond American Homes full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Richmond American Homes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Field team was nice, big company , nice models .

    Cons

    Not enough support from office management, too many homes one person to effectively manage and build a quality home.

    Advice to Management

    Crazy work load. Every superintendent should have an assistant so that the superintendent has the time they need to manage their subdivision and supervise the project to build a quality home.
