Run!
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLAugust 5, 2018
Work anywhere else! Cut throat culture. Hostile work environment. Company steals your commissions. CEO and Divsion Management have no clue regarding Florida market. CEO stated that monkeys could sell his homes. Divsion Sales Manager cusses and rants continuously stating sales people dont do anything and are not needed so just fire them. Hire the next poor slob. Not in business to sell homes; rather, to take the preferred lender loans and sell them on secondary market. That's where this company makes its money. Their preferred lender can do no wrong. Zero communication from lender with sales or buyers. No rhyme or reason ever. Just throw the s#@$ at the wall and see what sticks. Just say no to RAH!

Not a bad place to work
Superintendent of Construction (Former Employee) –  FloridaJune 8, 2018
Ability to move up and top pay for positions. Stressful environment but so are all production builders you work for. Vendors are in demand so hard to get them to show up so you can stay on schedule.

Pay, ability to be promoted

Stressful

New Home Sales Associates are paid too low
New Home Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 7, 2018
Richmond American Homes is a very profitable builder and doesn't need to sell a high volume of homes like a DR Horton or a Lennar. The salesperson suffers because they can't make the volume of sales they need to make to earn a great living and often they are stuck at a community that isn't selling.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMay 9, 2018
Great bosses who are very supportive and want you to succeed.

The amount of income you make is based solely on what community you are in. Placement is based on seniority meaning your first year is rough financially.

Home Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Denver, COApril 2, 2018
The culture has changed within the company, adding more work to the Home Care Department. The accountability has become null with other departments. Lower management understands stresses daily but upper management seems to look the other way.

Management throws any question back on you
Home care Warranty Specialist (Current Employee) –  ColumibiaMarch 26, 2018
Ask for support or back up on a issue, and they shuffle around it until it comes back as a bigger issue.
Homeowners call you all hours, so you need a throw away phone to keep for work only.
Pros
On your own
Cons
No support

Being Cheap leads to unhappy employees.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Mid AtlanticMarch 20, 2018
Management is out of touch and doesn't want to be held responsible for their own poor decisions which directly affect everyone else's potential to earn. People who should have been sharing information within their own departments won't for no good reason. Favoritism abounds. I T system is riddled with problems making getting answers to simple inquiries near impossible.
Pros
Not much micro managing
Cons
No security for workers leaving late into desolate parking areas. Being cheap is the guiding rule.

Richmond Is A Corporate Builder
New Home Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 16, 2018
Management was accusatory, unhelpful, and acted like they didn't want you to succeed. Like selling with your hands tied behind your back because they would only release homes to sell that Upper Management decided to do. So, if you sold a lot of homes you were left with no inventory to sell. Pretty awful feeling for a sales rep.
Pros
Base Pay, Some Co-Workers Were Nice
Cons
Personal Cell Usage, Long Commutes, Long Hours, Micromanaging Bosses

Design Consultant and Merchandising Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZMarch 2, 2018
RAH runs lean and has unrealistic expectations of the work load their employees can handle. Burn out rate and turn over is high. Things are promised that don't come to fruition.

Assistant SuperIntendent/Home Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mesa, AZFebruary 22, 2018
My days usually consist of calling homeowners regarding warranty issues and any customer service tickets submitted, then drive around the community with the Superintendent to make sure everything on site is getting done and is nice and clean. I came in with very very little construction knowledge and now I feel as if I have learned and grown so much from the company.

SENIOR DESIGN CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAFebruary 13, 2018
Very stressful job & too many hours to work to complete tasks but I loved the job. Worked with many wonderful customers and other employees. If they hadn't lowered the commission rate I would not have left.

I liked that I was appreciated and rewarded for the work that I did.
Pros

Cons
lowered commissions & poor management
