Extremely demanding company with no leadership above the community level.
Community manager (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – February 16, 2016
A very demanding yet rewarding work experience at the community level. Very very busy office, JVM tends to under staff so there's always plenty to keep you busy.
I learned a great deal at JVM, I learned how to learn by hitting the ground running! I learned to be a great leader, but experiencing what NOT to do. I learned to utilize the tools provided for me and I learned to never ever ever trust Human Resources.
The community managers are amazing. Strong network of managers always willing to help one another.
The regional manager is completely unprofessional and has no clue how to lead. She manages by intimidation, humiliation and bullying. If you have any human emotions at all, this is probably not the company to work for in Kansas City.
Corporate management seems completely out of touch with things happening at the community level. A lot of decisions are made from the top without much research or communication with the people it will effect.
Hardest part of the job was dealing with the regional manager.
The best part of the job was the demanding nature of the job. I grew a lot in a short amount of time. The community teams are an amazing, top notch group of intelligent, hard working people!!!
hard work, people, benefits, beautiful communities
