Steer clear of this company... At least in this area.
Custodian (Current Employee) – Topeka, KS – December 22, 2015
This company management in this area needs some serious help. We are discriminated against, always understaffed and the workload is increasing as those of us who remain at our facility have to take up the slack. The area manager is unable to perform his duties, the lead custodian is constantly threatened with being fired, as are the rest of us.
The hiring practices are a joke. The company only cares about warm bodies. Training is non-existant. The area manager's method of motivating the staff is to insult us and threaten to fire us.
Other regions might have better management, but in my area, not so much. This is just a low-wage and dead end job. Steer clear unless you are looking for something temporary. If I had another job lined up, I would not look as I walked away.
Some of the co-workers, Interaction with our customers
Overall nice laid back work environment. Grew fast. Making adjustments to realign in 2015.
A/R Accountant (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – July 17, 2015
Great coworkers. Need to be very self motivated to anticipate management questions and provide explanations on the spot. Management could benefit from more control out in the field vs corporate spotlight.
Free lunches. Access to upper management that are friendly and personable.
Maintenance technician ( Supervisor) (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – May 2, 2016
A typical day at work for prestige maintenance is full of surprises and uncompleted job assignments from the previous shift, The lack of concern for qualified candidates makes for a less than desirable end result. The reason for attracting unskilled candidates in my opinion is a poor vetting process. No employee training, low compensation. Little to No raises or resources, No PTO, No holiday pay, No over time, No bonuses, and No benefits! The hardest part of the job for me would be making sure that the contracted obligations were met on a day to day basis with little to no help or support from upper management or corporate. My position as maintenance mangier/ shift supervisor is to over see and execute all fields of contracted job assignment. Starting off I had four employees. And now due to corporate budget cuts I'm down to one part time employee. This is my story of just one of prestige maintenance's contract nightmares.
The building i was contracted to work in had some of the best poeple you would ever hope to meet
No employee training, low compensation. Little to No raises or resources, No PTO, No holiday pay, No over time, No bonuses, and No benefits, and short lunch's
Maintenance Technician Washington DC (Former Employee) – Washington DC – March 2, 2015
Astronomically high turnover rate with maintenance technicians. Too much micromanagement. Techs are under staffed and overworked. Trust between techs and management is minimal at best.Watch this company, they make you promises they don't intend to keep. When you need to contact the management team they are conveniently unavailable. They routinely throw you under the bus for the missteps they take.The techs are way under payed for the amount of work they do. Pay periods are supposed to be bi weekly; instead some are 3 1/2 weeks. Management will double talk you. Smoke and mirrors ! Beware !!!
Senior Purchasing Agent (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – February 2, 2015
The work environment was very positive and the people I worked with with very nice. The work load was very heavy and the there was too much work requests from the employees in the field. Prestige is a national company and there was very poor planing of projects and this always put more stress on trying to get supplies ordered and shipped to the stores
once a month we had free lunch on fridays, soft drinks and water were available at no cost.
poor planing by management for projects that required ordering and shipping supplies
Maintenance Director (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 19, 2014
Rachel Sanchez in my opinion, is probably a great leader but has no idea how poorly her management team treats employees.
Under immediate management, be prepared for NO communication so you're on your own. And communication is ONLY by email as they discourage direct contact with employees.
There are NO corrective measures or warnings for employees if mistakes are made... other than termination.
They do NOT deliver on promises made!
They have NO idea about what they're doing but instead depend on outside contractors to bring in professionalism or take their best guess.
Do NOT attempt to inform them about current laws when there are violations, you'll pay the price on that one (those that have certifications/licenses beware!!!!!!).
Beware of taking positions you assume are normal, you'll usually end up as a sub-contractor working for another sub-contractor to the actual client... they like to keep that a secret until after you're committed.
They'll tell you proceed in one direction, and then require another direction when you least expect it. They'll want people to take charge, and then micromanage anyway.
Janitor/Maintenance (Former Employee) – Johnstown, PA – December 3, 2014
At typical day consisted of cleaning restrooms and sales floor. I learned how to clean those as quickly as possible. Management was accommodating and kind. Both co-workers trained me. The hardest part of the job was the stress and the speed required to accomplish my tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job was my interaction with customers and employees.
Regional Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 8, 2012
Every day was a new experience and challenging but rewarding at the end. I had flexibility and great support. My immediate supervisor was encouraging, supportive and a great motivator. My payroll analysts and the HR dept. were great as well as senior management.
Custodian (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – December 18, 2013
I have always enjoyed my day at work. I love to learn and clean. I multi task a lot. I have always prioritized my work day so I could do a good job. Sometimes the debris in the restrooms weren't so pleasant to clean up, but it really didn't bother me that much. I always got along with management and my co-workers.
Custodian and Porter (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – June 18, 2012
A typical day at work would be Long but friendly hard working. You would learn a lot of various techniques and many different life handling skills. Co-workers i would have to say some are friendly and some-well you just have to learn how to get along. The hardest part of the job i would say is staying up and awake all night and day on your feet. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the elders and spending time with them and assisting them as well as getting to know them like if they where part of your family.
a lot of cherishable memories with the elders & co- workers
Facilities Technician (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – July 16, 2013
I would recommend Prestige maintenance to anyone. They treat their employees with respect and are eager to compensate fairly for any work done for them. Family atmosphere, great management, best company I have worked for ever.
