    I worked at Clayton Homes as an intern

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with friendly coworkers
    Fantastic cafeteria, super healthy options
    Clean gym with incentives to work out
    Decent internal mobility
    Good benefits (health, 401k match, dental, etc)

    Cons

    Because the company is starting to get older, some processes are becoming inefficient.
    Certain departments and positions are only filled externally.
    Pay depends a lot on company performance, so you have to accept variability in your income, which can be uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay skeptical, keep looking for improvements

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn about multiple industries. Can be a fun work environment, depending on the team and department you work in.

    Cons

    Management does not care about training new employees. What you learn here is what you teach yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get up to date with society, stop thinking that the more you make the less you have to work.

    Pros

    The on site wellness center is nice. And the quarterly bonuses are nice. Some of the departments are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Unrealistic project deadlines and upper management that does not fully understand what is being implemented. Sometimes when there is a problem they go to everyone but the person who can help solve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes you need to listen to the people directly involved with a problem and hear their side of things.

    Good Compensation - Dishonest Employer

    Former Employee - Home Sales Consultant
    Former Employee - Home Sales Consultant

    I worked at Clayton Homes full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation is unlimited if your are willing to work for it. Trips are great. Loved my customers.

    Cons

    Incompetent and dishonest managers. Long and demanding hours, unprofessional atmosphere. Managers only care about their earnings, too bad for everyone else, including the customers. Office culture /model will never work the way it is. Benefits are okay, but insurance was getting expensive when I left for what you were getting. Many of the Best Senior Managers and VP's have left the company. That is never a good sign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people based on realistic work environment, not what you think it is. Fix a very broken office culture, including that open office with all sales people in one big room. Find some managers with some integrity towards the customers and associates and fix a broken compensation system for them so they are not motivated to cheat their way to earn a living. The system with outside contractors is also very broken.

    Account representative, collections

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Clayton Homes

    Pros

    On-site gym
    on-site restaurant
    Opportunity for advancement = A-
    Generous sick time and vacation time
    Sufficient training
    sufficient manager feedback
    Fair and structured bonus system
    Some really great people are and have been employed by this Corporation

    Cons

    Costs of living, dollar value and micro economics is not considered when hourly workers are reviewed for annual reviews/raises. Raises are based on merit. A 7 cent raise to an hourly wage is insulting.

    The company's benefits are self funded therefore, costs are high for limited coverage. Meets the minimum required after the "Affordable Care Act"
    $1000 deductible medical, a lot of $ out of pay checks, very limited number of in network doctors, many of the specialists are out of network, regulatary costs increase 5%-18% annually, yet co-pays increase along with others, emergency room visits. You are encouraged to go to urgent care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take into consideration the cost of living when annual raises Take place. If it is based on merit and somebody gets a raise of seven cents they should've been fired.

    Take a look at benefits of Fannie Mae and other self-funded competitors with 14,000 employees. The penny-pinching tactics provided by the limited benefit coverage is borderline unacceptable.

    Keep up positive reinforcement, it's a winning system.

    I worked at Clayton Homes

    Pros

    None. Too few to list. Predatory requirements for waiver of employee rights as a condition of employment, no benefits, long hours, limited opportunities, no training.

    Cons

    Required to work 58 hours per week by unprofessional manager that was rarely at the home center and did not provide any training. Three of us were hired at the same time and all of us quit within 3 months due to poor management. Dead-end company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage your managers
