Family comes first at this nationwide homebuilding company. Prospective employees often participate in Key Influencer Visits, where they are interviewed (often in their homes) alongside family members or close friends to help hiring managers better understand their personalities and backgrounds. The practice is helpful for prospective employees, too, allowing their nearest and dearest to gain some perspective on the job and helping them talk through the decision to work for David Weekley Homes. There’s also an internship program designed specifically for employees’ children and a discount on homes sold to staffers and their family members (a set percentage based on tenure). One worker says, “It really exemplifies how the company puts the employees first, even before customers.”
