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

    Pros

    There appears to be earnings potential .... maybe.

    Cons

    The company is not interested in innovation or improvement of process. Local management does not want critical thinkers. There was practically no training provided.

    Advice to Management

    I was only at UBH for 22 days. During that time I had success filling what had been a relatively empty pipeline. I received practically no training on the UBH process yet was expected to "drink the kool-aid". What training I did receive, the sales methods seemed to border on sketchy. To me, buying a home is a big decision requiring full trust in the process and the people that you are working with. At UBH, they seem to...

    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...

    Advice to Management

    If a manager has an increasingly high turn over rate, it is possible that it isn’t the employees but the sales manager causing the problem. If a sales office isn’t selling it is possible that the sales manager is chasing off good sales people and potential customers due to unprofessional and disrespectful behaviors.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Either sell the company or stop treating it like it’s a personal checking account to approve applications. If they would get out of their own way, they’d make so much more sales and profits. Lower the rate, Take more risks, and stop micromanaging. They’ll never keep a competent sales team if you keep making policies and goals that are unattainable and then telling people they just aren’t working hard enough.

    I have been working at United-Bilt Homes full-time

    Pros

    Privately owned company with large margins

    Cons

    Executive management unaware of issues due to isolation and remote locations

    Advice to Management

    get more personal with field offices to learn the truth about activities and how your policies go unfollowed and create stress for no reason. Need to acknowledge the double standards and hypocrisy that exists.

    Pros

    If you get a good manager you can succeed.

    Cons

    Baton Rouge, management is just downright rude unprofessional and Not willing to help you suceed. When you were getting a sale no one acts excited or really cares if you close the deal. This job is terrible for sales people no security whatsoever and it’s a long hiring process. The way you write a sale is pathetic. I know online application for getting preapproved and the manager acts like He knows everything just because...

    Advice to Management

    If the managers are going to be licensed loan originators then call them that. They should be equal status of the sales person who is paying everyone’s check
