What kind of people work for
Temps For Tracts?
Experienced new home sales people who
have sold out a community will frequently work for us until their next
community is ready. If their builder is not planning to build another
community soon, the sales person may then work for Temps For Tracts in
order to find a sales position with another builder.
Residential resale agents often
want to try new home sales and will work for us in order to decide if
this side of the real estate industry meets their needs. Not only does
it allow them an opportunity to learn a whole new area of real estate
sales, but it also allows them to work for a variety of builders and
some of the best new home sales people in the business.
Newly licensed sales people wanting
a career in new home sales are provided with on-the-job training by our
experienced Field Trainers who work alongside the new person at a job
site. Thus, questions can be answered on the spot and direction given
so that the new person quickly gains skills and confidence.
Part-time workers are
frequently needed just for weekends or for a few days a week on an occasional
basis. Some people who have other jobs may want to work in new home sales
on the weekends as a way to determine if this is a career they wish to
pursue or perhaps they have childcare or family situations that will
not allow them to work a full-time schedule.
Temps For Tracts is an Equal Opportunity Employer and
is committed to providing a work environment
that is free from unlawful discrimination and harassment.

Q. Can Temps For Tracts guarantee
me 40 hours of work each week?
A. No temporary personnel service can guarantee you any set amount of work
per week. Our employees who consistently work 40 hours each week (and there
are many who do) have several things in common: they are good at what they
do, they are reliable, they are able to get along well with any type of sales
person or customer, and they are flexible as to when they can work and where
they will work. In addition, they make it easy for us to reach them when we
have work assignments available.
Q. Will I be able to get
work close to home?
A. We will try to keep you working close to your home, but that may not always
be possible. As a condition of employment, you must be willing to drive up
to 45 minutes from your home.
Q. How much will I be paid?
A. Our employees are paid an hourly wage which varies depending on experience.
We can discuss this with you when we receive your resume. Employees are paid
as employees, not as independent contractors, and thus required state and
federal withholding amounts are deducted from pay checks.
Q. Will you help me get a
full-time job with a builder?
A. Yes. We will do everything possible to help you secure a full-time job.
Our builder clients look to us for job candidates based upon certain pre-selected
qualifications as well as recommendations from us describing your work history
with us. Keep in mind that much of your success at getting a job with a builder
will depend on you: your attitude, your work ethics and the quality of your
Q. Do I have to pay a fee
to Temps For Tracts if you get me a job?
A. No. If one of our clients wishes to hire you as a result of your working
for us at one of the client’s new home communities, then the client may
be required to pay a conversion fee.
Q. Do you provide training?
A. Yes. On-the-job training is provided for new hires who may need the support
of our experienced Field Trainers who will work alongside you, providing
direction and guidance. In addition, each of our employees is provided with
a copy of our comprehensive Training Manual. We have found this type of training
to be far superior to classroom instruction alone.
Q. I am an experienced new
home sales person. Do I have to go through a training program?
A. No. During the interview process, we will discuss with you the job requirements
along with our expectations, but we will not require you to sit through a classroom
orientation or training session. You will be required, however, to read our
Training Manual and our Employee Handbook.
No boring classroom training here! For our newly hired
employees who have limited new home sales experience, we provide on the
job training. This allows you to work alongside one of our experienced
Field Trainers who will guide you through the intricacies of new home
Here are just a few of the things
you will learn during your field training:
• Opening and closing the sales office and models
• Inspecting the models and identifying specific selling points of each
• Learning your way around the sales office and figuring out the topo board
• Determining neighborhood amenities and the selling features of each
• Greeting customers and discussing community amenities
• Explaining Mello-Roos and Homeowner Association fees
• Learning which questions to ask in order to determine the buying needs
• Demonstrating various features in the homes
• Effectively handling telephone calls and taking messages
• Explaining the deposit and reservation requirements to customers
• Getting customers to complete registration cards
• Completing “traffic” reports and other sales office documents
This hands-on approach to training allows our employees
to quickly become confident in their own skills and helps to alleviate
many mistakes often made by newly hired sales assistants.
“ I began working for Temps For Tracts in 1992 because I wanted the flexibility
that a full-time job would not allow. When my husband needed after-surgery care,
Temps For Tracts found work for me close to home. After he passed away, I needed
to work a lot! They made sure I stayed busy. Now, my schedule is really crazy
and yet they continue to find work that fits my needs. Many of the staff members
at Temps For Tracts have become personal friends over the years and I feel like
“ If it weren’t for Temps For Tracts, I would never have had the
opportunity to become a lead sales agent at Wild Iris, a new home community by
Pacific Coast Communities.”
“ I have over 25 years of real estate sales and management experience,
and my association with Temps For Tracts is one of the most rewarding relationships
of my real estate career. Why? Because they are professional and ethical, organized
and consistent, compassionate and caring; elements sadly absent from most modern
day relationships. Yet, these are the minute by minute, day by day hallmarks
of Temps For Tracts. The staff and owners are a credit to the industry!”
