Overworked
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 May 2019
Only cares about sales. Management always on your butt. Overworked and long hours expect to work for a minimum of 40 hours a week even as a sales associate.

Long hours, only care about sales, not your well being

Worst of the worst
N/A (Current Employee) –  Calgary13 March 2019
Culture is poison. Management is inept. Poor workers are rewarded while team players are thrown under the bus. Very High Turnover of good staff. Those that aren't fired - quit.

If you want to be under paid, under appreciated and pressured and harassed by upper management every day of your life then this place is perfect for you.

Horrible finger pointing, never good enough, fire anyone at anytime for stupid reasons. Gives them the excuse and budget to stock up on the already bloated executive team.

Do something good for yourself, avoid this builder like the plague.

Poorly managed builder
Rather not say (Former Employee) –  Headoffice10 May 2018
Management rarely communicates expectations with staff. Top down mushroom management style where staff are lied to, and treated like dirt. Funniest thing to watch is the surprised look you get when you submit your resignation.

What needs to improve;

1. Overhaul of senior management
2. Hiring process - keep in mind this is the best you will be treated and this is mediocre at best.
3. Stop blaming staff for your mistakes. You never asked their input or opinion yet blame them for the failure of your plan.
4. Small minded execs who love talking smack about their staff and will tell everyone except the staff member concerned.
Pros
Free parking
Cons

Enjoyable place to work
AREA SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Okotoks, AB2 January 2018
I really enjoyed my time at Excel Homes. The opportunity to engage and develop relationships with customers was plentiful. The potential to earn a very good income was there for those who worked hard.

The only issue I had was with the sales managements inexperience.
Pros
Great earning potential
Cons
nothing bad to say

Awful place with a ton of brown nosers
Former employee - sales (Former Employee) –  Calgary4 May 2017
Sales is goal # 1. Management wants only sales and if the staff have to get beaten up to achieve this results, they will even train people to beat you up. If you're a brown noser, you'll love this place. Excellent benefits and perks. Management cherry-pick their favorites to run the show who are mostly bullies. They fool you to believe that the company has a great culture. The closer you work with management, the more you'll have to endure.
Pros
Excellent perks
Cons
Leaders don't know how to treat their people

Great product and ideas, mismanaged execution.
Sales Co-ordinator (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 August 2016
Company is very sales-oriented meaning the other departments bear the burden. Office environment is negative and stressed due to poor leadership and conflicting priorities. Expectations are very high giving two results: 1) competent co-workers, 2) poor work-life balance. Managers don't understand the concept of time management. Lower level employees are basically expected to manage themselves and the company's priorities with little direction and often incomplete or inaccurate information. Perfect place to work if you love doing things two or three times over.

Good benefits and training are provided for those who want to move up - you just won't want to.
Pros
Training provided, benefits are good.
Cons
Misdirection, misinformation, and miscommunication; poor work-life balance.

Great people and a great workplace
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB17 March 2015
I learned many new skills in construction. I've learnt the process of building houses and all the necessary skills for Framing, spray foaming, drywalling, painting, etc. Everyday changed depending on the situation and progress of each and every House that we were building. some off the harder days were spent digging a trench or moving heavy material between the houses.
Pros
good hours and a fun/ hardworking people
Cons
site clean
