REGIONAL SALES MANAGER / PERFORMANCE COACH (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 9, 2018
I only left due to my husband accepting a job in Phoenix. Houston is an incredible division. The team there has a high level of integrity and was one that I did not want to leave.

DAILY UNITS MANAGER FOR AUSTIN DIVISION (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 24, 2018
It really depends on which department you want to work in and making sure that it fits the persons skill-set. It can be an great fit if the person is equally selective about the requirements and expectations.

Competitive Floor is bad for customers and divisive
Jr. Sales Counselor (Former Employee) –  OhioMarch 28, 2018
As a sales person in Ohio, I was disappointed by the continuous fake motivational like, “you got this, who’s got the next sale, and we are here to help you”.

No real motivational techniques were used just old worthless sayings and platitudes.

Most sales managers in the North eastern region were of no help. Boiler plate saying all the way. Also a collaborative floor is more productive. It was frowned upon when a Buyer from Toledo wanted to work with me and my partner. Customer ended up being disappointed and bought at a competitor with collaborative floor and better service.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Stress/ poor management assistance

Productive fun work place
Sub-Contractor (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 10, 2018
A typical day at work at KB homes was always different. Either do trim outs, Punch work or customers services. Most of the supervisors are very nice and easy to work with. Twice a year they would hold bass competition, that way everyone could get together at a fun place. The hardest part of the job I would say would be breaking in a new supervisor. The most enjoyable part of the job would be doing a different job everyday and not being monotonous.

Lots of turn over in management and staff
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Riverview, FLFebruary 6, 2018
For the most part nice people to work with but management expects you to do far beyond your job description with little opportunity for advancement. It’s a do more with less environment. Lots of turnover.
Cons
Not much room for growth and big expectations of staff

Be careful if you aren't a favorite
Sales Counselor (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXFebruary 3, 2018
It's an average sales job, with better than average training. Like all jobs though, if you aren't a favorite of the management you get the least desirable communities and don't have anyway of protecting yourself if anything goes wrong.
Pros
stable company, good training
Cons
Bad mid level management that played favorites

Fast-paced Public Company Enviornment
Market Research Analyst (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CADecember 21, 2017
Work days varied, which was good. I focused heavily on analysis of market. Great co-workers and managers (for the most part). Enjoyed freedom to be pro-active and the fact that I wasn't micromanaged. However, the company is public and only cares about the bottom line.
Pros
Good work-life balance
Cons
Public company. Cut throat.

False promises
Land Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 4, 2017
Being a yes man, lying and promising more that reality can achieve and blaming you for not achieving it, is how management runs the group. Throwing your team under the bus, may make you look great, but you won't get you team to anything more.

Stressed by Management - Degrading Employer
New Home Sales (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 17, 2017
Not such a good company to work for unless management has changed significantly and the people at the top have begun to care more about their employees. Blame the victim mentality to protect their friends and keep their friends in their positions when they should be fired for being horrible people and bad at their jobs. Very political and internal workers are passive aggressive and at times unprofessional - they get nasty for no reason.
Cons
Bad people with minions
