Too many levels of management. False promises to advance and value. The idea of the mission and values are great. Unfortunately they get lost easily by too many middlemen.
Pros
Successful homebuilder
Cons
Grew too fast, quality went way down

Really depends on your role within the company
Warranty (Current Employee) –  gta12 April 2018
Some people really float by while others work well over 44 hour work week for less pay. Warranty has a very high turnover..its a very very stressful role with little thanks. Lucky if you have a strong manager to help you out ( or at least make you feel better). Really fun culture if you can get over the job itself ( fun paid for work events)
Pros
Free weekly lunch/ Fun social events

Lots of room for growth
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON4 February 2018
With different divisions, and many different job positions within each division, any employee can explore many different avenues for expansion within the company--should they choose to. The company shares its successes with its employees by holding special gatherings where the owner himself acknowledges and thanks all the employees for their hard work.
Pros
The company is very generous to its employees
Cons
Office politics in certain departments/divisions

High Intensity very fast paced environment
Site Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Milton, ON14 January 2018
Requires extensive knowledge of the building process for residential homes from excavation to final occupancy inspection.

very fast paced environment that demands fine tuned organization, planning and the ability to change direction at any moment.

Its not just one house you're building, it could be 40-50 at the same time. All at different stages of construction which means you must be able to communicate to a large variety of trades every single day and also be able to schedule the trades to follow.
Pros
benefits, wage, job security, community of employees
Cons
long hours, cold weather, very stressful and demanding

Overworked, under paid
Handyman (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON17 December 2017
Some management should not be management, lack human compassion, and empathy
They are only concerned with budgets and money, and not the employee's
They are strict with production schedule though, which does benefit the handyman somewhat
Pros
wages, benefits, nice co workers
Cons
vehicle allowance too low, punch a clock

Everyone is kind and helpful/lack of leadership with managers
Warrant Administrator (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON30 September 2017
I enjoyed meeting different trades. I gathered a lot of information on the building of a house. Management are bullies, and do not take responsibilities for any errors. You are yelled and screamed at, called names, your work gets sabotaged. Managers will do anything to keep their jobs.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Lack of communication and isolation

Contract Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB17 September 2017
This was a challenging role but exciting, constantly looking for cost saving measures in both design and materials. Working with suppliers and framers to improve design and efficient builds. Management was hands off giving your room to grow, but there in the back ground for assistance if required. Managing people is the hardest part of the position looking for the win win solutions. Most enjoyable was seeing progress in the reduction of costs.
Pros
Office Gym and Showers
Cons
Length of Service
