    I worked at United-Bilt Homes full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The top 10% do well. You can earn a company truck.

    Cons

    They pretty much will not work with outside financing. You have to use their in-house financing and they charge 9.47%. About 1 out of 10 applications get approved. They are $20k-$30k higher than almost every other builder. They charge a custom home price and build a low quality home. The do almost no local advertising.

    I worked at United-Bilt Homes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is okay as a whole to work for.

    Cons

    There needs to be stricter policies in place regarding work place bullying. Certain managers feel they can make sexist, prejudicial, and rude comments without repercussion and it’s true. When reported to Human Resources, nothing is done but a threat to all sales office employees that if they don’t get along everyone will be let go. Certain managers feel they have a right to scream at employees. Certain managers will sit in their office with their feet up all day and not sell a single house in a year, but accuse their PCs of undermining their earnings.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at United-Bilt Homes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Helping people custom build their homes.

    Cons

    Once an application/sale is taken the next step is overcoming in house financing from being too greedy or stingy. It’s easier to sell the customer than it is to get an approval from the finance committee. Micromanagement from the top all the way down. They can’t keep employees long enough to promote from within and so they have a revolving door of incompetence.
