Just look at their stock price.
LEASING CONSULTANT (Former Employee), Jacksonville, ALSeptember 16, 2014
Campus Crest Sold off multiple properties in the event they over priced their stock. My property was sold off and my job created less secure. Not a good company to work for.

Too much too manage
Sales Manager (Former Employee), Abilene, TexasApril 22, 2014
Pros: great monetary and prize incentives, team outings once a quarter, networking, marketing, training sales associates, traveling to meet equal campus crest employees, benefits, event planning for the college demographic, free apartment, provides annual manager in training program
Cons: long hours without compensation, minimum to no work/life balance, unrealistic expectations, unsupportive senior managers, high turnover of sales associates, young residents
The good stuff: Traveling for sales conferences, annual meetings, assisting others in your same position, meeting other young professional who share your passion in sales, inspiring your leasing team to be their best, networking, event planning, incentives, benefits e.g. 401k, providing great customer service to residents and guarantors, marketing with – more... different medias

The training was insufficient as far as how the day-to-day/hour-to-hour should go. The traveling managers don't give the on-site managers or the staff members the attention, acknowledgement, or credit needed. They are unsupportive and unsympathetic. They give you false impressions of being motivational.

Management is expected to pick up the slack when any position is vacant. They are expected to complete the full-time duties as a manager on top of the work of 40% missing staff AND still meet sales goals. The sales manager position is impossible with the expectations from senior management. The supervisors are young which is fine. However, they tend to react quickly instead of accessing the situation calmly and keeping emotions aside.

There is a ridiculously HIGH turnover rate for leasing consultants. This particular property struggled for a few months without a general manager. The sales manager, maintenance supervisor, and staff members had to pick up majority of general manager tasks.

Campus Crest let employees go temporarily for 3 weeks during the winter with 1 day notice. I'm not sure what ethics they hold when reporting numbers either. There are budget cuts almost every quarter and special permission must be granted for the purchase of necessary office materials such as paper. Once you're gone, don't expect to retain any professional business relationships with the company.

I learned that there is no work/life balance in this job; it consumes you. If you are willing to work 70-hour weeks plus weekends (and not receive compensation for your efforts), then go for it! – less

Lacking Professional Senior-Level Management
Property Manager (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCJanuary 4, 2014
Pros: environment
Cons: lack of assistance and resources from corporate
The company is poorly operated from the top down. The hiring and recruitment process is a joke. The corporate recruiter lacks communication skills and any professional qualities. In addition, senior level management is young and regularly fails to provide support. Facilities vary by site level; however, are poor and few financial resources are available – more... to successfully do one's job as a property manager. The pay scale for campus crest is also poor. Others in the industry offer better compensation packages. The company seems to have great potential; however, are never able to actually meet the mark. – less

Great for college students
Administrative Community Assistant (Former Employee), Troy, ALJanuary 14, 2013
Pros: pays for apartment
Cons: limited hours
This is a great job for a student looking for an answer to room and board expenses. But thats about all this job does. It only pays for the onsite apartment, there is no opportunity for advancement, limited hours and the management system is poor

Watch your back!
General Manager (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC home base (all over US)June 11, 2012
Pros: great staff at property level
Cons: horrible management, no job security, not family orriented, senior management is too young and has no idea what they are doing
Co-workers were probably the best part about working for this company. But watch out if you think you job is secure, they'll fire you in a heartbeat for no reason. The management of this company is horrible!!!

The hardest part of the job is meeting the unrealistic goals the company sets for its properties.
