Do yourself a favor and dont work here ! It is not worth what they will put you through.
sales associate (Former Employee), phoenix – December 21, 2014
Pros: working 24/7
Cons: ruthless environment
Absolutely the worst company to work for. They have a horrible reputation. Management is incompetent and lack leadership skills. Instead hiring friends and play favorites. They will use you and try to keep you in fear for your job. They have created a Morales and unethical work environment where friends of management are awarded for stealing your clients. – more... They would rather see you fail then succeed if you have a good work ethic you pose a threat. Employees are uncoperative, caddy and rude. They will steel your clients backstab you and this is encouraged by the sales manager because she wants only her friends to succeed placing them at better communities and lets them practice unethical behavior. Sales manager is not a licensed realtor and has never sold real estate lacks the experience needed to lead and is moody she practices a, " I am never wrong attitude ! " This is a high stress environment due to the way it is managed internally they have a lack of training and will ignore your requests for help because management doesn't no how to do most job tasks themselves. You will be treated poorly when you have a question. Constant turn over everyone walks around looking unhappy because they are ! – less
Home Care (Former Employee), Colorado – June 28, 2014
Pros: my direct supervisor was awesome i appreciated him.
Cons: using personal cell. upper management at main office
Have to use your personal cell phone for work which leaves all homeowners and trades knowing your personal tele number and trust me they call you 24/7. Also was forced to download email on my phone so you can never get away from work. I had to stop carrying my cell on weekends. Very stressful work environment. Management is always behind in helping – more... the employees. They do knee jerk reactions instead if being proactive.
Money was ok. Benefits ok.
If you like a ton of stress then you will do fine working for Richmond. If you have no life than you will do well working for Richmond. If you enjoy knee jerk reactions and like dealing with cranky people than you will do fine. AND if you like lots of useless "POSITIVE" meetings where you basically get told what all you did wrong than you will do fine – less

New Home Specialist (Former Employee), Rancho Cucamonga, CA – August 20, 2013
Pros: lots of training
Cons: very micro managing policies
I learn a lot on my position, the company grows very slowly and the corporation have all the decisions made at corporate level, which make the growth very slow and without the input of the locals who are in contact with the Real Estate industry and local markets unheard at those levels.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Phoenix, Az. – July 10, 2013
Pros: constant training
Cons: working weedends
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 – more... changing which made it hard to build stability. The company as a whole was a very rewarding place to work. – less
Land Development Coordinator (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – April 22, 2013
I only worked for Richmond American Homes for a while as I was laid off during the building downturn. If I had the opportunity I would gladly return to work for RAH. I had great supervisors and I like the atmosphere. Very family.
High Energy Work enviornment with my Sales Partner!

Pros: unlimited income potential
Cons: work till you drop attitude
Worked in several Sub-Divisions while employeed at Richmond American Homes. I had a mixed experience while there . My partner was great. The company however seemed to be in a state of transition. I was dealing with some personal issues as well. I left after about a year to deal with my personal issues.
This is total B.S... This company is the worst I have ever worked for.... unless you like working for a money laundering snake then hey this gig is just right for you.

Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee), Phoenix,AZ – December 3, 2012
Cons: micro management
Busy but managable Mangament was not the greatest nothing was good enough for her even when work was completed on timely manner and accurate. Co-workers were great and felt the same as me. Hardest part that the utility bills were sitting on Management office for 3 weeks and service were disconnected for the models homes.
Regional Recruiter - Desert Region (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – November 9, 2012
Pros: good benefits, a great team environment.
Cons: the cycle of homebuilding
Careful cost control and resisting the temptation to overbuy land are trademarks of this cautious but aggresive builder. Seasoned , intelligent senior leadership that has a heart and takes the time to connect with employees.
