Exterior Painter (Former Employee) – Ft worth Texas – February 13, 2019
When i was offered the job they told me id be making $15 an hour and i would be doing framing which is what ive done for 17 years. After i started they had me in a whole other department that i didnt know how to do and was working with nothing but hispanic people that couldnt even speak english. In fact out of every one there less than a hand full ever spoke english at all. Then when i got my check i found out they were only paying me $13 an hour and they took out $75 for my drug screen. I went from a job were i made over $500 a week to there and my first check was half that i would have never took the job if i knew it was gunna be the way it was. That place is a scam id never recommend any one working there.
The management is very unprofessional , they will talk about employees and tell your business to others when you had a personal conversation with them. They also are not personable at all to your family issues and children at home.
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – January 10, 2019
Busy but enjoyable.Learned quite a few skills , from laying tile to light fixtures. Management was very demanding because the product had to be finished on time.The culture at work was pretty good because just about everyone got along with one another and helped each other as needed.The hardest part of the job was to have to finish the amount of work assigned to me in 8 hours. And the most enjoyable part was the 7am to 3pm schedule.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Seguin – September 12, 2018
They will not hire experienced people from the industry because they already know what a crock palm harbor. The entire industry for that matter is like swimming with snakes. Mobile home sales make used car and time share salesman look tame. The only ones making money are the managers and they use very creative accounting to make that money. Stealing your deals is common and not getting paid what you thought you had coming is to be expected. Basically everything they try to tell you and that carrot that is dangled is al a lie. It took me years to recover from working in the industry. It will literally give you PTSD.

12 plus hours a day 6 days a week, can’t turn your back on anyone
I should not have been hired when I was. The GM lost the office manager and had to take on the role of almost three jobs. No one had time to train properly and answered questions on half attention and therefore gave wrong or no answers at all. What should have taken a hour to accomplish took weeks due to refusal to educate, misdirection and personal priorities. There was also an office romance that resulted in my first two sales being stolen from me. They pay Less than minimum wage and deduct from each check during the first three months making it even less. Impossible to work here as a single person without savings to eat into.
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Plant City, FL – July 5, 2018
As a Service Technician with Palm Harbor Homes, I stayed out of town Monday thru Friday. I was never at home during the week. I had a disagreement with Management therefore leaving the company. I wanted to be at home more often instead of living out of town.
Tile Setter (Former Employee) – Plant City, FL – May 31, 2018
Lots of potentialn to gain a lot of valuble knowledge working here. Very fast pased and not what you would comsider an easy job but a valuble experience if you have the right attitude you'll learn things that will stick with you for life.
Worse Management. Threats, lies, manipulation. Had to fight for my commissions. Manager would take commissions and bonus money from my sales. Manager would kill deals as means to discourage sales people. Worse experience in my career. Manager yelled and screamed at employees.
Lot Manager (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – April 10, 2018
Great experience working there doing lot management and maintaining all manufactured homes. Most enjoyable part of the job was being able to decorate homes to my liking and listening to music while cleaning.
