Supervisor (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – February 1, 2016
Been through many a sales but this one was the worst. After 2 months of waiting for the close due to no funds we start off with no help. No training, no welcome to ginkgo speeches, nothing. Manager quit, supervisor quit, and now looking like 3 others too. They ask way too much out of the staff from a day to day perspective. Never have I or never will I see the amount of records you have to do on a daily basis not to mention the weekly, monthly, and yearly records you have to keep. No knowledge of how to run a community even if it's 200 units. Managers and regional are lost and from what I've seen they walk around laughing at people as well as making dirty jokes and just dirty talk. Good luck to whoever works here, I hope you find better.
No money, losing properties, no help, no training, upper management is a joke and needs air housing, insurance is worse then any place hands down, not put together at all.
Working at Ginkgo Residential was a very rewarding working experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my job duties and gained a wealth of knowledge and understanding in accounting during my tenure there. Co-workers were very helpful.
company paid for parking for all employees and worked with great individuals
most fringe benefits were taken away because company downsized
Full Time Leasing Consultant / Leasing Manager (Former Employee) – columbia, SC – May 28, 2013
it was a great company to learn from a typical day at work was answering all phone calls, responding to all email leads, market reports, outside marketing, touring prospect that is interested in the community and closing the sale to the best of my ability. call backs everyday.
good team work and getting things done in a timely manner.
Workplace is easy going though sometimes stressful.

Its a fun company to work for and you have more pros than cons. If you love to work with people and know how to communicate well with others I would strongly suggest at least trying to work in the field. It is what you make of it and could be so much more. I've learned different skills that I would have not had any knowledge of going into the company. I wouldn't really say its a hard part to the job, but the most enjoyable one is meeting people and sales. If you're good at selling then this job is PERFECT. Overall the enjoyment of meeting people and helping someone along the way...
manage daily employee and customer related issues by providing appropriate resolution; respond to inquiries regarding policies, procedures, programs and current market. The hardest part of the job is the working solo on a high traffic day. The most enjoyable part of the job are the residents and dealing with prospects.
