Total Lack of Concern/Respect for Employees
Community Representative (Former Employee), Frederick, MD (Linton townhouses)November 24, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: zero concern about employees.
I worked for Drees for three years with nothing but positive feedback from agents and customers. When a new agent was mistreating me, I notified management asking for help with the situation. When I didn't get a response and the mistreatment escalated (agent tossed my framed family photo in her garbage can, belittling, condescending tone/words, false accusations) I reached out to HR. The following day I received a call from my boss stating that "my services were no longer needed."

Two weeks prior to my termination, another coworker told me that this female agent had an agenda to get rid of me and that my job was already posted on Indeed.com. Sure enough, I saw it posted 2 weeks before being let go (the week I asked management for help with the situation).

I have never witnessed such blatant disregard for employees until working for this company. If you complain, they simply get rid of you. I would encourage someone to think twice before working for Drees Homes. If you're looking for a loyal company that cares about their employees, this is not the company for you.

Good company but be ready to work extremely hard
Builder (Former Employee), Raleigh NCDecember 15, 2013
Pros: stable company
Cons: long work hours
As a builder working for this company I worked at least 60 hour weeks and had long commute times. It is a good company but if you think you are up for this kind of schedule be sure and negotiate your salary so that you will be compensated fairly.

My spouse worked her for over a decade
Builder (Former Employee), RaleighNovember 15, 2012
Cons: everything.
This is the worst company to work for. They are racist and sexist. They have a bunch of men that work there and their company outings are all involving alcohol consumption and going to stripper places. The managers are mean and they only advance their buddies. Worst place in Raleigh. If you speak up you get FIRED.
