    Good hours

    Cons

    Low pay

    Work on pay scales; better bonus plan that builders can meet; upgrade standard features to be competitive; Train GM's in mananging people correctly.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The work space is in a model home, which is nice, and the people are generally good, with the usual exceptions.

    Cons

    Poor management from the top down. A high turnover in employees and builders results in frustration from all sides, customers and associates.
    A weak pay structure that provides for no increases and rather than reward good performance they make you work longer hours for less.

    Advice to Management

    Change your work culture, the overbearing "corporate" feel turns people off. Train your managers better, most of them seem to have little or no people skills. Take better care of your employees, reward the good ones and maybe they will stick around longer.

    I have been working at Schumacher Homes full-time

    Pros

    Salaried plus commission and bonus, family owned, PTO quality people

    Cons

    There are no downsides if you are in new home sales. Family owned is a plus at will contract, work weekends

    Keep the same management system works well, have assistants for sales personnel

    Pros

    I can honestly say this is the best job I ever had. Our motto "Work hard, produce results, have fun" genuinely describes the atmosphere of the company. The company sets aside time to celebrate our accomplishments & have fun. There is opportunity to advance your career if you are willing to work for it.

    Cons

    I have no cons to list. If someone has cons maybe they should go work for another company to realize how good they have it.

    Advice to Management

    Never stop growing & continually striving to be the best on your lot custom home builder.

    I have been working at Schumacher Homes (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can’t believe it’s been 8 years I nervously parked my car in the parking lot to start a new career. I am proud to say I work for one of the best companies around and have grown into who I am today because of the awesome experiences and friendships I have developed here through the years. It’s such an empowering feeling to grow along with a company and be a part of something exciting! Two more years till I get the 10 year anniversary ring

    Cons

    Every job has cons and each person is different, it only matters how you handle those cons. I can honestly say that I don't personally have any cons with Schumacher Homes.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would to keep up the growth and career opportunities providing the local areas.

    I have been working at Schumacher Homes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Owner / management not afraid to try different approaches, implementation is what i what I'd call detailed-expedite. What works is retained, what doesn't is put on the shelf.

    Team work is a constant, and strongly emphasized.

    No one is just a number.

    This is a culture of caring for one another.

    Cons

    Nothings coming to mind at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your department / company as one who leads, not as a leader. Leaders have this power/authority thing going on, My way or the highway type of thinking. Those who lead, inspire their teams and help them be their best.

    Pros

    Schumacher Homes is a growing company with a great vision for the companies future. The company has outstanding leadership from all levels of management. Being a family owned company it has been my experience that they treat employees like part of the family. With ongoing training and interaction with management, I feel that my voice can be heard and that my opinions matter.

    Cons

    As with any growing company there will be challenges with growth. Meeting these challenges as a team can only make the team and the company stronger. There are no major cons to working here, in my opinion.
