Fun Place to Work
Homes Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lillington, NCSeptember 18, 2017
Very Fun place to work. Management and co-workers were great. Everyone helped each other make money. A lot of phone calls have to be made and a lot of appointments. I was just in a bad spot in my life.

Beware of the General Mgr. in Ocala
Office (Former Employee) –  Ocala, FLAugust 14, 2017
This Manager is not qualified to be in management.
He treats people with total disrespect,
Has an exploding temper over smallest things.
Acts all sweet and nice to your face when he wants to, but then stabs everyone in the back. He puts on the "nice" act, but he is just the opposite.He loves to talk DOWN to you and anyone he can.
No matter how good you are, you will not like working for this narcissistic individual.
He breaks almost every HR rule in the book.
Trust me.

Long hours, low pay
Sales (Former Employee) –  TexasFebruary 24, 2017
Not really any training. Leads are stolen and fought about, too much drama. Paid a small salary for a few months than strict commission. Work hours are long. I was told we would have alternate weekends which was not true. If you want to lie to customers and raise your salary you have to push additional products and raise the price on everything , including the shipping price of each home to make a living. Training was all about the managers egos. It is possible to make six figures if you want to lie to customers and inflate prices on each home. It felt more like the "car business" than the home business. Too much drama with some of the other sales staff about the leads. I made less than $7,000 in 3 months time for 50-60 hours a week! In the short time I was there my family suffered with the long work hours I was putting in and the drama in the office. It was not worth it, so I walked.
Pros
Meeting new people
Cons
Low pay
