Busy work place but productive
Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Decatur, GAAugust 23, 2012
The most enjoyable part of the job was moving in new residents who were well pleased with their apartment. A typical day at work was being kept busy with daily work. I learned all aspects of human behavior the good and the bad. My co-workers always worked together to fulfill the need of the Housing Authority. The hardest part of the job was evicting families with children.
