Pros

Work hard, learn fast, and are somewhat aggressive...you can make a very good living

Cons

Many times things are done on a home sale which are not in your customers interest but put more money in for Clayton and the Sales Center. Encouraging people to take out high interest loans from Vanderbilt. Playing games with home prices much like a car dealer!

Advice to Management

Clean up your group and get more NEW individuals to run home centers. The risks of going door to door in a trailer park to solicite business and putting up sogns that look like a "for sale by owner", etc. are dated and Clayton offers a nice product! Just sell the homes!!

    Pros

    Customers are directed by internet advertising to Home Sale Centers so there are numerous prospects/leads.

    Cons

    They expect a lot for a little bit of pay you will sell the home, help obtain financing, prepare paperwork for several different closings on one sale, apply for permits, coordinate the contractors to build homes, visit job sites, etc. not a very organized process. The corporate office makes you jump through so many hoops to close one deal. You are also expected to go out in the field each week and put up signs on roads to help direct traffic and generate leads. Three jobs in one I would say for very little money. Recently lowered pay to 24,000 a year with no draw to pay back but lowered commission to on each sale. Very dissapointed in the process.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for the work they have to do. Bigger commissions along with the base pay to make it worth it.
