Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The e learning training is good which helps along the way but initial trading is zero. Some of the end products of house are really bad and some are really good. It Varys from site you site. The structure and procedures are good also and the compliance side of things.

Pros

Some colleagues

Cons

Senior management don’t really care and expect unrealistic targets.

Stressful, pressurised culture

The management are extremely domineering ‘micro managers’. Working for this company as a sales advisor is stressful and pressurised. Very sales and profit driven culture with little concern for the well being of employees.

Workplace

Working for David Wilson was fantastic they looked after their workers. Any problems would be solved straight away. The managers where brilliant at their job the site would run efficiently and everyone just did what they had to do. Once the build was done then the manager and CEO would come out and thank everyone even the trades that were working there

House builders

Started at this company only to find they were selling out to Barrett Homes. Decided to move rather than be pushed out on "last in, first out " basis

Demanding with lots of training and procedural culture

Aspirational culture, the company excels in its support and training and its attentions to procedures and customer satisfaction focus, can be a competitive environment due to the amount of management training on offer some can be disappointed as manager positions can take a while to become available.

Pros

Training and pay

Cons

tendency to micro manage

Fun job

The hours were good and the pay and the job roll was different every day but I had to leave because of unfortunate circumstances and I do miss the company the staff were enjoyable to work with

Good work place

It was a good place but when it rained there was no work, but they do give good bonuses every few months. Most of the people are really nice but there are some with serious attitude.
