Great culture, hard work, great training, decent compensation.
Builder (Former Employee) – Carrollton, TX – August 9, 2017
David Weekley has high standards for its employees, and educates them well. Training sessions are frequent, and they inundate you with their company culture, which isn't a bad thing.
Salary was fair. They treat their employees fairly well. I liked most of the people I worked with. Opportunities for advancement were somewhat lacking. Not too much in the way of promotion that I witnessed, or have heard about since leaving. Some upper management were let go for what I felt were reasons beyond the control of the employee.
From a construction management perspective they run an extremely tight budget to create a great product. They will be flexible with the budget on behalf of their customers. Worst move to make at this company is to allow a customer issue to get out of hand. You won't last long without near perfect surveys.
My company experience was good here, but I was given quite a bit of work that I was not compensated on (taking care of multiple closings for other builders and not seeing any bonus). Because customer is king (although they preach that the employee is), it is hard to handle a high volume houses within their system while giving proper attention to obtain a good survey. They at times will flood you with houses, creating this situation.
I'm glad I worked here. I gained valuable experience and learned how to work under enormous pressure, with high standards of building and customer service. If you get on board as a CM, better be ready to work!!
Great corporate culture, great learning experience
High stress, mediocre pay, limited advancement opportunities
