Pompous money-grubbing shysters
Past maintenance supervisor (Former Employee) – Sarasota Fl., Bella Sol apartments – February 25, 2015
As a maintenance professional of over 20 years spanning the Suncoast of Florida from Gainesville to Sarasota, I have gained a bit of experience in dealing with "personalities" of a company. I will let you in on certain tell-tell signs and situations that were present in this one.
First, a maintenance shop in disarray, scattered out over many "storage rooms" is a signal (at Signal Point) that employee turn-over is frequent, usually due to either poor hiring technics (low pay) or simply employee dissatisfaction.
Secondly...when they drop the "we do this as a calling" line on you at interview, expect a sub-standard pay rate.
Thirdly, when a company demands "honesty" from you when you deal with them, yet also expects you to lie to residents when it comes to why their requests aren't being fulfilled, you can bet your bottom dollar these people aren't honest themselves!
And lastly, speaking of swindling company practices, when the owner of the properties and the owner of the stewardship contractor are actually business partners (thanks LinkedIn) and drive around company vehicles with defunct business names still on the sides of the vans, you can expect these people are unscrupulous and liars...as is exactly what this company personifies.
And I wont even get into the racial bios that permeates from the upper management, all of which are Jewish, that they are superior to all their residents...especially the Latino population at Bella Sol. Trust me, what is said behind closed doors is criminal and sickening.
