Best Job You'll Ever Have

Share This

In 1977, Palm Harbor Homes was founded on two basic commitments:

  • To build the best manufactured homes.
  • To make working for Palm Harbor Homes the best job ever.

They continue to guide Palm Harbor Homes today. In fact, these commitments form the foundation of the company's mission statement:

"To build and sell customers' dream homes that exceed their expectations. To build life-long careers and have all associates act as owners."

Together, we ensure each of us continue to make and keep our promises to each other and, most important, to each and every Palm Harbor customer.

Commitment to Excellence

Our commitment to excellence is a continuous evolution. Since the formation of Palm Harbor Homes in 1977, the entire company has looked to make each day better than the last. In 1987, Palm Harbor's executive team established a commitment to continuous quality improvement throughout the company.

Each individual associate plays an important role in Palm Harbor's success. By working together for our customers, we are able to achieve dramatic results and improve our company each day.

Performance Based Compensation

In order to attract talented people possessing an entrepreneurial spirit and desire to learn, Palm Harbor has developed a compensation philosophy that treats our employees as owners and rewards results. Most of our associates receive compensation directly tied to the results they achieve. This allows top performers to enjoy unlimited earning potential based on their contribution to the company's results.

In addition, Palm Harbor Homes provides associates with a competitive benefit package, including medical insurance, life insurance and 401K.

Personal and Professional Growth

Palm Harbor is looking for talented people with leadership potential. We have a strong belief in promoting associates from within our company. Through programs such as our manufacturing division's "Rising in the Ranks," we highlight associates who have advanced in their careers. We take pride in providing opportunities for our associates to build life-long careers at Palm Harbor Homes.

Approximately 80% of our managers have been promoted to their current position from within the company. This includes our senior management team. Our commitment to learning provides opportunities for all associates to grow, both professionally and personally.
