Negative work environment
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) – Virginia – August 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.
