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

    I worked at Shea Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, Hours were ok once we were made hourly (no OT ) benefits package is nice but pricey . Close to home

    Cons

    Before we were made hourly end of year was horrific long hours in the dark trying to prep homes. Management seriously stop looking for a piece of paper plenty of qualified people to promote with tons of experience but the degree is all that matters to them. Don't have an opinion and share it even if you have ideas for resolution as well Management knows best. Atmosphere is directly affected by all of Managements for choices. Stop taking test and look at the people hire. They all cant be yes people. You have to have a balance which they don't. You say no or have opinions forget it you will go no where. HR what HR they direct you to Management which then tells the whole issue resulting in a poor working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what has been said in your exit interviews. Re-evaluate your current Management team seriously look at the mass exits that happen with Management changes. You have managers that hire to their personality not to what a company needs or wants. Management should have a backbone to their homeowners stop giving the farm away. Have some confidence in your employees. After all you literally hand picked them.

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

    Pros

    The employees are professional, nice to work with and the benefits are good.
    Onsite there is a health club with a large swimming pool, a small market place as well as a full restaurant and there's also a spa.
    The area is always neat and clean.
    The job isn't hard, there's just a lot of work (which can make the day go by pretty fast).

    Cons

    Working weekends...EVERY weekend.
    There needs to be some sort of rotation so that a social life is possible.
    This part of the job is devastating and really wears on you after a while.

    Advice to Management

    All sales staff should have some sort of weekend rotation, even if it's only one weekend a month.

    Pros

    Very supportive management, great benefits and personal time off. Our management team supports our decisions and are only interested in our members, homeowners concerns. Well designed houses, well built by smart and driven Field Managers.

    Cons

    Enough staffing to get the work completed, which means heavy work loads. Deadlines are moved up which increases stress in the field. Some projects are poorly planned and then implemented without much forethought.
