    Company will stand behind work, and always make sure customers are satisfied. Managers are very easy to contact and to get answers from at rapid pace.

    Cons

    Friendly competition being able to cross sell, retail, working weekends.

    I have been working at Rockford Homes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company provides an excellent opportunity for you to utilize your talents and work with some very respected leaders in the industry. Everyone here appreciates a strong work ethic and supports new ideas and initiatives.

    Cons

    As with any homebuilder, there has been a shortage of good trades supporting our efforts and growth. Finding quality subcontractors that can handle the increased work load continues to be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people and they will be loyal and willing to do what it takes today, tomorrow, and in the future.
