Administrative Assistant to Purchasing Manager (Former Employee), Itasca, ILAugust 10, 2014
Pros: great perks - nice lunches, outings, etc., however not fruitful for the production aspect of the workload

24/7
Home Care (Former Employee), ColoradoJune 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 Salesperson (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVMay 6, 2014
The sales environment is very much like working at a car dealer. Do whatever it takes to make the sale. Often times with no regard if your actions are ethical

Excellent company overall
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

No job security they like to cycle through people every 3rd quarter.
Corporate Office (Former Employee), Denver, COFebruary 27, 2013
Lack of direction, no support, they lay off frequently. Mostly bring people in then replace you with lower paying people.

No sense of loyalty to employees who want to succeed.

All decisions have to go to the top and managers/controllers have very little decision ability.
