Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Regional Management was hands on and very active in each sale. Systems management tools are created by the local division. Allowed for fast timeline to get projects online.

Poor management

Poor management (Tampa South). They will push you until you break so they are able to claim their bonuses. Customer satisfaction is NOT on their list of priorities as much as it was mine. You can learn a lot from the field trades but the lack of compassion will absolutely drain your happiness.


Freedom to run your job site


Management is a bunch of buddies who promote each other and couldn’t care less for your well being.

What is a typical day like for you at the company?Arrive at your desk and stay there for 8hrs. You will be watched and micro managed.

DR Horton - Tampa South Division Sarasota, FL - HR and Management Struggles

DR Horton is a great company! Be very mindful about what division you'll be working for! TPA South is very number driven at the time of this writing.


Celebrations on reaching milestones, meeting new people with different skill sets


Short breaks, high employee turn over, no vehicle, no gas card and no re-imbursement on tools, or supplies needed out in the field.

The jobs itself is not but but I feel like I’m going insane with the amount of stress this job brings. Quantity over quality and that makes the supers jobs 10x harder because you are dealing with upset homeowners and closing homes that should not be closing.

Great potential

Cut-throat corporate environment, even amongst peers. Otherwise, great job. Good people, opportunities for growth, limitless potential for pay and knowledge acquisition. Great benefits but larger than advertised work load

Great company, OK pay

The company as a whole takes care of their employees and great health benefits. Salary is not as high as other builders and they don’t reimburse for gas which is frustrating when they want you to be out in the field driving around.

Great pay potential for sales reps

Solid company, you definitely sacrifice your personal life for the pay. But it can be very financially lucrative. It’s been a good experience just know what you’re getting into.

Terrible place to work

The manager or better yet anyone at this place does not care about you. Employees are underpaid and over worked. This is the worst job I have ever had and I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to have to work at this place

Great company, if your regional management is compititent.

Great model, Great company, my regional management was subpar. Had it not been for that I would still be there. The spec sales model makes the process easy and pay comes quickly (aside from supply chain issues which they could not help). Before you apply, get a read on your region.

Awful, Unprofessional Company

They expect you to work 12+ hours a day AND bring your work home with you, all while paying you a joke of a salary. They constantly fire people and let people quit without finding replacements, they just dump the ex-employees work in someone else's lap until they are so overwhelmed that they burn out and break under the pressure. All while refusing to give you raises for doing your job and the job of 3 other departments.They implement random dress codes after you've been there for years without one and only enforce the dress code on POC & Women. They give you PTO but treat you awfully and threaten your job if you ever dare to use it. Seriously, you can't even take a day off to take yourself to the doctor or your car to a mechanic without your manager giving you the third degree and threatening you the next day. Managers will throw you under the bus and frame you for mistakes they make, and make up lies about you if they don't personally like you, regardless of how well you do your job.I finally quit during COVID, after they made it clear that they were not going to follow CDC guidelines while forcing us into the office and cramming us into our cubicles like sardines. Best decision I ever made. They do not care about you or your family, but expect you to give your blood, sweat, tears, and first born child to them.The worst part is that they build some of the worst homes in this country. I'm talking brand new $500,000-$700,000 homes with leaking ceilings, sink holes, uneven floors and trims, among a million other nightmares. Then they have the audacity to call themselves - 


They sometimea feed you


They overwork and underpay, unprofessionalism

Best job

This was the best company I have worked for. I recommend anyone looking for high income and a challenge to join. Only negative is working every weekend and most holidays. But the income get you over that.

Good job security

Big company with lots of employees. Good job security and likes to advance employees from within. Depends on the department that one is in, as being in some departments offer one zero chance of advancing.
