Run away
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Houston txSeptember 24, 2018
I was working at K.Hov homes almost 2 years. My manager was demanding, disrespectful and unprofessional! Look else were to work!
Not very often people will stay here more then a year. It tells you something about the company. Few people who are more then a year in and mostly if they worked for another manager. Run away from this company!!!!

Management was not qualified in my opinion to handle day to day concerns/issues with trades and schedules. Low focus on quality and high focus on numbers.

Great place to start a career. Trade partners were responsive, but lack of available growth was the reason I left. I asked numerous times for a promotion and was denied.

Great company, but a huge company, so at times you would have to deal with the red tape.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Four Seasons at Mirage in BarnegatJune 16, 2018
They had a tremendous training program, and always encouraged people with Bachelor's to get their Masters. As long as you got a B, they paid in full.

I also got great pay raises and quarterly bonuses.
Pros
Training
Cons
Dealing with a little red tape

Opportunities to advance
Arch Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Carpentersville, ILJune 10, 2018
I have learned a tremendous amount at my current position, however without management retiring, advancement is difficult. The daily routine is never constant, which is a blessing.
Pros
Challenging environment with good people

IRS KGB CIA all rolled into one.
Sales (Former Employee) –  Canton, OHJune 4, 2018
If you would like to work for a company that has meetings just to schedule meetings; do reports for the sake of reports, and relentlessly train associates in the art of the "seven steps to a strong start", but not train them the difference between a footer sump and a floor sump. Then this is your company of future employment. All you have to do is inquire about the employee turn-over. It is tremendous and the true testament to the corporations lack of dedication to their employees. I saw the writing on the wall after only one week of working for KHOV and should have left.
Pros
If you're a competitor, it is easy to compete against them. They are their own worst enemy.
Cons
Bureaucracy, red tape, inflexibility to change to local market conditions

Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Landover, MDMay 16, 2018
The Maryland Division management lacks any sense of culture, integrity, appreciation, loyalty... etc. Favoritism across the board. Worst of all corporate would rather turn a blind eye than to deal with the real issues as to why the MD Division has decreased in sales, reputation and financial strength. Run... and thank me later!
