UNIT SPECIALIST/MAINTENANCE (Former Employee) – Cambridge, OH – January 22, 2017
Park Place Apartments is made up of four brick apartment complexes that share the same small road next to the city's park. It's a great location for people with kids and older people with no kids as well because the city's main street is not to far from the apartments. The buildings themselves are rather old being built in the 70's but are in great shape for their age. We gutted and remodeled ever unit by putting up drywall, painting, laying flooring, putting in light fixture, plumbing and electrical work. The balance between my work life and my time away from work ran into eachother a lot but I was on call and lived where I work which didn't bother me much after a while. All in all I'd say the builds were not that bad after remodeling and painting them. The location used to have a bad name with drugs and drunks in and out but we cleaned that up rather quickly after taking over the property. We also did better background checks to keep them type of people out.
It was easy to get along with tenants, location was great
Plumbing under the building needs redone, noise complaints(thin floors&walls)
I enjoyed the company.They would sometimes take us to breakfast or lunch.

Park Place Apartments was a property owned by Wilkinson Real Estate Advisors and I must say that I have no complaints. I loved not only the coworkers I had, but also the friends I made. I will forever miss my job at Park Place. Even though no day was the same, every day there was a day doing what I loved. I learned how to be patient in a busy environment, open-minded about every situation, and friendly no matter what was going on. The hardest part of the job was actually leaving the job.

A typical day at work would be cleaning apartment grounds, cleaning swimming pool, and fulfilling work orders. I learned to be more productive and self sufficient. My co-workers were friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job was any time I had to stay to complete work after job hours.
Park Place Apartment OK to work for if you don't have family and have a second steady job.

I start patrolling property grounds at 9pm til 4am. Ive learned that there are a lot of crazy things that go on at night. I gotta be aware of my surroundings at all times. The people I worked for were good people we shared a lot of laughs. I worked patrolled and responded to complaint calls alone. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the same people for the same reasons. The knew what and was not aloud but the keep doing the same things that would cause me to write them up or give them parking violations. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the people living in the complex I worked at.
