Start work at 7AM and completing my day by 5PM. First start by reviewing the finishing work from the prior days with my schedule in hand as well as the task from the previous day to view what can be released for payment. Day varies from meeting with numerous trades and home owners while maintaining relationships with them as well as city officials. Keeping the neighborhood clean, busy and profitable is the 3 main keys I focus on while constructing new homes

Construction manager will lie and scream at clients to save his own hide. not a place I wanted anything to do with. Clients hate the experience and upper management cares about only the bottom line...

DR Horton is a great man to work for and I recommend it highly to hard working individuals. If you don't like to work 50 hours a week then this is not the place for you.

Everyone is pulling for themselves. Nobody is pulling for the company, nobody’s pulling for the customer. Total chaos. They make promises and don’t keep them.Management seemed clueless at times. The company direction and motivations were never clear.
Pros
None
Cons
Unreal expectations

This company is an average company to work for. Driven only by profit and did not put customer service as a priority for the new home owners. Good people worked for the company, but the corporate mission was driven only by quantity and profit.

need better leadership in the field, superintendents need more power to make decisions based on day to day operations with regard to sub-contractors and better vendor lists for work

Great company to work for, just not for me. Very fast-paced and high-volume. There is a lot of work that goes into each home, and it is very difficult to maintain quality and production on over thirty homes at once and keep up with all the extra paperwork and honestly complete the required checklists on every home.
Pros
Insurance and benefits
Cons
Extremely stressful

90 day temporary agency used to get staff started. Management extends probation indefinitely no matter how many goals have been achieved. Some personnel have been extended beyond a year! Management will tell you whatever to keep you on through the temp agency as long as possible.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with DR Horton. I had a excellent Management Team and great coworkers. I came into this position without any prior project management experience. During my time there I learned to manage the construction of multiple homes in a timely and efficient manor. It was a very stressful job with lots of problem solving. However that was something that made it that much more interesting and fun. In the end i was moved to a different division of the company which was not a good for me.
Pros
fun enjoyable job
Cons
Lots of driving, high stress levels, and occasionally long Hours

Starting salary and benefits were very good, but there is a lot of pressure to perform with little support to succeed.
I learned a lot about reducing construction schedules and driving subcontractors to the breaking point.

Six different area managers in 10 months, all from outside the area.

I found most of my coworkers to be easy to work with and helpful.

Hardest part of the job was dealing with the shortage of subcontractors.

Interacting with subcontractors and homeowners.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
No local administrative support, few local subs.
