Great company to work for with great pay/benefits!
Sales Associate in Training (Former Employee) –  Thornton, CODecember 6, 2016
The people who work here are so helpful and willing to help with the newcomers. I learned how to be a great salesman, and how to operate the CRM and E1 computer systems, in which training really helps teach this. Training is very extensive, but well worth it once on the sales floor. The hardest part of this job would be the computer systems.
Pros
Training is very helpful, and the pay is great!
Cons
Have to work weekends

Wonderful environment for fostering creativity while maintaining professionalism
Design Consultant (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CASeptember 11, 2016
I LOVE my job, but my husbands work is forcing this relocation. RAH is a wonderful place to work for all departments. It truly fosters a team-building environment and the entire division's ability to band together during challenging times is testament to our achievements in AVID.

Do not advise working for this company.
New Home Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  ArizonaJanuary 14, 2016
Forget getting a opportunity to succeed, your fired before there is a chance. They want robots. Even the handful of employees that seem to stay employed have such an ridiculous amout of work they want to quit. You're lucky to get fired rather than not knowing if you'll have a job or not, and if you do, you hate going to work. Just move on.
Pros
Non
Cons
They do not care about their employees.

Richmond American Homes - Production Coordinator
Production Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDNovember 9, 2015
At the division level this is a great place to work. However division management has little to no say in how they operate/ achieve their goals. I think the company as a whole would fair better if they allowed divisions more freedom because each market is different. Corporate continually hamstrings their divisions but never changes their expectations.

Great homebuilder
Regional Recruiter - Desert Region (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 15, 2015
I can honestly say I enjoyed going to work every day at RAH. The team atmosphere was collegial but driven by spirited competition to be the best and take your co-workers forward with you.
The company produces a product to be proud of and many employees are also product owners.
The leadership of the company has been in the industry a long time and recognizes and manages the cyclical changes in the business.
Pros
good work life balance
Cons
Slow salary growth

sorry company due to upper mgrs
Complete all customer service work and sign offs (Current Employee) –  columbia mdJune 2, 2012
company does not value employe, only the cheapest cost. they let the top people go ,and then re-hire at a smaller salery,in some cases the new-hire had no experience as a superintdent. You are under the target every day ,to possible job loss . the top mgrs at the md division have not paid their dues in the bussiness,but some how MDC Holdings love the fact that they are good at threats,and keeping others scared of possible job loss . The quality is useing the cheapest products .and cheapest contrators with the supers running 2-3 jobs.miles from each other and no gas allowence. This is the same thing done by all big builders.

Excellent company overall
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, Az. July 10, 2013
This was a company with a lot of positive energy with my co-workers. The tools that were given to us as sales associates were fantastic allowing us to do a better and more effective job. Our upper management team was incredible. The only negative was as the economy started slipping people were being let go on a monthly basis so the management was constantly changing which made it hard to build stability. The company as a whole was a very rewarding place to work.
Pros
Constant training
Cons
Working weedends
