Very,Very fast paced with very high expectations
Utility Person (Former Employee) –  Portland, TNMay 7, 2018
Very hot in Portland,TN warehouse

They expect you to do massive production and expect you to do this within a few days, unrealistic expectations.They are always hovering over you pushing you to get your numbers.

It is very hot inside

I tried to work here with the ethic quality first, production second but that turned out to be opposite.
they expect you to be able to do everything within two or three days

The 8 hour day consists of start work at 6am then you get a 10 minute break at 9am, you get a 30 minute lunch at 12pm then you go home at 2:30 most of the time.

equipment is old and breaks down all the time
you are required to bring your own tools like a tape measure, hammer, pliers,etc.

If you don't do production plus or miss a day don't expect to get a raise

In the winter when home building slows down expect to get laid off,their policy is if you are laid off for 3 months you automatically get terminated.

No work/quality manuals on products you build
Pros
it;s a job, health insurance is standard
Cons
impossible production wanted, always hovering over you pushing you to achieve them, no production bonus

Wish I was still there
Field Sales Administrator (Former Employee) –  Huntersville, NCMarch 23, 2018
This was the job I had hoped to retire from. Great environment and wonderful colleagues. Ryan Homes really believes in helping an individual grow and accomplish their career goals. The benefits are outstanding. I would give anything to still be working there...but the housing market the way it was, I was laid off.
Pros
Interesting exciting work
Cons
Don't really have any

Burn-out job with poor mangement and no job security
Mortgage Loan Originator (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 1, 2018
The customers are incentivized to use you, so management holds sales team accountable and responsible for all roles in office. There is no accountability for the inside staff. Management is never present or around. Turn-over is incredibly high. Company runs off of a culture of intimidation and bullying. Often worked 60 or more hours in a week. They sell you on "all of the money you can make" but it's not nearly as much as they make it seem.
Pros
incentivized business
Cons
hours worked, stress, poor management, no job security

training has opportunities that need addressing for new hires and management needs coaching on people skills. they have the knowledge but relating the message is not always in the best way.

Great Place to Work
Truss builder (Former Employee) –  100 Apples Church Rd, Thurmont, MD 21788February 14, 2018
NVR is a great place to work, but I will say it is not for the laid back type. The work environment is very demanding and stressful at times. Long hours during their night shift. It is a place of production, so numbers and performance does matter. Even with that said I did enjoy my time at this company even though it was short. Advancements are there but require hard work and time to get them.
Pros
Great Pay, Good team, Great workers
Cons
Maybe too fast paced for some, does take time to advance, long night shift hours

Pjm role
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  SCFebruary 7, 2018
A day in the life of a NVR (Ryan Homes) project manager typically goes something like this: You arrive to the site early (7AM), you review your schedules, check your calendar for appointments, update your rain log/BMP map and walk your houses under construction. In the first walk of the day, you send out contacts to contractors scheduled to ensure you're hitting your schedule appropriately and order any necessary materials needed to keep all critical tasks moving. Throughout the day, you're typically solving a lot of problems, making lists for contractors and answering emails, phone calls and texts. Towards the end of the day you will confirm work is being completed correctly and your next contractor is going to hit the schedule. This job is very rewarding when you see the complete product and a happy homeowner. Management is very hands off; they will let you learn and grow. As long as you are getting your work done, there are no issues. The hardest part of the job is keeping unreliable contractors on schedule and ensuring their work is completed with 100% quality and in a reasonable amount of time. It is a great job for anyone who hates sitting behind a desk. You're out in the field all the time, which is great.
Pros

Stress, heavy work loads and high pressure
