Fun and active place to work.
PT Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 11, 2016
As of right now the days go by slow, due to weather and students getting ready for mid-terms. My leasing manager does a great job in helping out with daily tasks and my co-workers are great to work with as well as having conversations with.
Pros
Free food, free promotional items, great and flexible schedules

Horrible Place to work for! They do not care about employees at all!
Full Time Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCFebruary 2, 2016
I was a leasing consultant for peak campus, specifically station at five points, in Columbia SC. The management is absolutely horrible. They are all liars despicable human beings. They do not care one bit about their employees and will throw you under the bus if their apartment is not leasing. DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER THIS COMPANY. It is infiltrated with people who are despicable. I have never seen such horrible management in my life. I was underpaid and disrespected by the property manager who is CLUELESS about what he is doing.

Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) –  Lawrence, KSJanuary 18, 2016
No two days are the same. Each day has its own set of tasks and responsibilities that keep the workplace moving all day long, it's definitely a fast paced environment.

Overall, a BAD experience!
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  MinneapolisJuly 25, 2015
This company is the most unethical company in the portfolio of property management companies. They will overwork you, underpay you and your work will go unappreciated. This is the cheapest company I've ever worked for. Their properties are dirty and filled with rude people. You will move up the ladder if you kiss up and LOVE being micromanaged. They make college students sign leases without being screened and/or being approved. If the student cannot find a guarantor, they are still obligated to pay the lease in full. I don't plan on staying!
Pros
Opportunities for Advancements, Benefits
Cons
Training, Pay, Unorganized, Unethical, Stressful

Inconsistent Management for years!
Leasing (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCMay 27, 2015
Spring Place has lost it's focus on what it takes to be a great property. They go through managers like there is no tomorrow because they either hire someone who is unfit for the job or treat them poorly when hired. Unless you're from corporate your opinions or ideas don't matter and half most of the timr they don't even know how to do their job. You can excel at everything there is to do there and still get fired for not having the right "mindset". Overall you'll be overworked and underpaid. In 3 years they've gone through 5 leasing managers, 3 assistant managers, and 6 property managers! This is not the place to start or grow but instead to end your career or settle for less. They don't care about the staff nor residents and are desperate to keep their numbers up because that's all they care about. You'll probably still apply cause you need a job but don't consider yourself lucky if you get the position. You'll just be the next one to bite the dust.
Pros
It's a job, Location, Some staff
Cons
Management, Corporate, Pay

Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  St. Louus,MoMay 12, 2015
A maintenance Supervisor is just that a Supervisor. I would never consider working for you as a Supervisor when you want me to be a technician also.
You can't get two job descriptions performed for the price of one....shame on you.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Bad Management. Clique environment.

Negative work environment
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) –  VirginiaAugust 19, 2014
Horrible place to work! The management staff is clearly overworked and they take their frustrations out on the leasing consultants. There is poor communication between corporate management and the managers onsite. The people you will work with are rude too. The property has had several 3rd party management companies which may contribute to the overall hostile working environment. This is a sink or swim type job. You will not be trained and you will not be given "constructive criticism" when you make a mistake. You will be belittled, chided, and subsequently you will be written up.

The residents feel the same way about management. They hate the management team and they will not hesitate to tell you. The company will offer gift cards to the residents, but make the residents jump through hoops just to get the gift cards. If the residents would like to speak to a manager, the managers will tell you to give them their email address, which isn't a bad idea but the residents normally feel blown off. The residents complain daily about the A/Cs, washer and dryers, and the cleanliness of the apartment. The model apartment looks great, but the actual apartments look nothing like the model.

This job can be fun and flexible. It is busy and fast paced. It is a good opportunity to earn some extra money and get cool merchandise (i.e. t-shirts, sunglasses, snacks, events) but the negative, unorganized work environment is enough to make you think about quitting everyday.

If you apply to work there, you've been warned.
Pros
free stuff, compensation, fun events
Cons
rude managment, gossiping co-workers, poor communication, unorganized

Dysfunctional work place with poor training and questionable business ethics.
Leasing Manager (Former Employee) –  VAMay 26, 2014
The company appeals to the overly ambitious Millenial who is willing to do whatever it takes to get ahead. All aspects of the position are micro-managed. Peak Campus is a 3rd party property management company. They cut cost by hiring college students (All-Stars) to do the job of property managers and leasing consultants and compensate them on a work for rent program. These part time employees are not trained properly or qualified to perform the everyday responsibilities of experienced managers.
Peak campus also takes advantage of young students who are new to the rental market. They pressure 1st time renters into signing a lease even if they don't have a co-signor. If the qualified applicant cannot produce a co-signor within one week the lease is canced but the applicant is still responsible for the full amount of rent over the entire duration of the lease term. Collections will come after the applicant for the money, their credit will be destroyed and they will have to pay even if they never were a resident at the property. This policy challenged my business ethics and a result I decided to seek other opportunities.
Pros
opportunty to advance if you fit into the business culture
Cons
poor leadership and lack of flexibility within rigid corporate policies.

Cliquish
Property Manager (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXAugust 8, 2013
If you did not fit into the mold of who your boss expected, then you were not given any chance to prove yourself, especially if you were not their first choice to run the property.
Pros
good compensation
Cons
most expensive in town with no specials offered to keep competitive in mkt
