Great fun work environment. Always something new going on with the events and staff fundraisers. Every year The Shops at Wiregrass partners with local charity's such as American Cancer Society. This allows the team to work together to raise funds for a great cause!
Regional Security Manager (Current Employee) – Michigan Region – October 10, 2016
Forest City has been a great company to work for. Excellent support from management and co-workers. Provided excellent training and opportunity for advancement. Unfortunately they are selling their Michigan properties and I am unable to relocate out of state. Providing a safe working and living environment for our staff and tenants has been a challenging yet worthy experience.
Resident Relations Specialist (Former Employee) – North Chicago, IL – November 3, 2016
Typically each day presented itself with a variety of challenges allowing for growth beyond the competition. The most enjoyable part of the day was meeting Military members that have traveled throughout the world. The most difficult part of the day was that it went by so fast.
Resident Services Coordinator (Former Employee) – Richond, Va – August 12, 2016
Compensation/Benefits and training are GREAT, it the management team in your Richmond, Va office that need reviewing. I would recommend extensive management on fair-housing and and work place ethics. I worked for the company for several years the last 1 1/2 was the hardest of my career. There were lots of favoritism throughout the office.
Custodian (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – July 25, 2016
A typical day would be getting vacant apartment units ready for the next rental. The co workers were nice and we worked as a team to get the apartments ready. the most enjoyable part was that it was a day shift job.
Office Administrator II (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – July 10, 2016
Need better advancement opportunity and more daily duties. It was okay to work downtown but prefer closer to home. The co-workers were nice and was able to learn more in excel and learn computer skills.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Silverdale, WA – January 29, 2016
Working for the Navy contracted residential management team was not only stressful but difficult to establish direct chain of commands or company guidelines. They changed on a daily basis as well as the management staff. Communication between departments is sorely lacking. Co-workers were also not up to par or capable of handling the job given the lack of direction. It felt like a steady sinking ship.
I enjoyed serving the Navy community and families.
Lack of management training and professional employees
Building Engineer (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – April 21, 2016
Good learning experience. I enjoyed my time here most of the time. I would change a few things. It was pretty laid back. I liked my co-workers. The hardest part was trying to teach myself different things.
Assistant Property Manager / Accounting (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 2, 2016
I was hired on with FCE to work in the one of the Denver locations. While they will welcome you with open arms and portray this is a company to work for and try to make a career.
The lack of training that you will receive will lead you to have a overview on what your job duties are but they will expect more out of you so management does not have do the work. As you prove more and more that you can do that particular task more is put on to you until you are unable to handle the work load.
The office is a younger group in all denver locations with a culture of profanity and inappropriate behavior/talk.
Talk with the corporate offices and they will trickle down your complaint to the local offices while the property managers will look down on you and make your life miserable.
Residents are always complaining of the turn over and the lack of respect that they get from the staff members within the denver locations as well as the corporate offices
Nepotism, lack of quality training, and poor management.
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – September 13, 2015
Management was the worst very clickish, a lot of nepotism going on in the company. If you have an opinion, a different point of view or don't mind management taking credit for your ideas then this company might work for you.
They hire unqualified people putting a burden on the qualified employees. I would not recommend this company to anyone.
