It is great to interact with the public and to help them move into affordable housing. However, the management team constantly gives you new tasks to complete on top of your already overwhelming duties and you still are expected to perform at a high level. They also do not give you all the tool like "training" to do your job properly.
The Asset Management Dept. here is the worst department to work for overall. Training is little to none.The shadow method is used without any formal follow-up. The management lacks professionalism in treating employees with respect and dignity. The work/life balance is a joke. The initial venture seems good until you become a part of the company.
If your a woman don't apply for a field rep position they won't hire you
contractor (Former Employee) – Cincinnati area field inspector – January 3, 2016
I worked in the field of property inspections for 5 years, then contracted with cmha, when a full time position opened and my contract was finished I noticed they had no female field reps. I applied for the position I had been doing for 2 years and I didn't get the job. Now my performance was perfect, but I was truthful on every assignment and they weren't happy, I wasn't suppose to fail the properties like the job called for. So like I said if your dedicated to do a great job, and your a woman, don't even try to get a field job with them. If your a man, take the job fill out the assignment in your car instead of going in the property, and you'll get 10 years on the job before you get caught. lol
