Productive, and learn to work in an diverse environment, enjoy the ability to cross-train, and multi-task.
Porter (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – December 17, 2013
Pros: holiday gatherings
Cons: no cons
Everyday was always a challenge, but enjoy learning while working. I learned how to be team oriented, how to treat customers as I would have wanted to be treated, enjoyed the seminars, enjoyed the annual recognition programs(s). Hardest part of my job, was to be directed by more than one supervisor, and not being able to complete task, or not being – more... able to, cooperate when the communication among management, and supervisors is poor. I really enjoyed doing maintenance, and team work, with co-workers. – less
Pros: staff tries their best to get their work done in spite of the poor leadership.
Cons: low morale
Executives profess a positive culture but act contrary to what they profess. This is reflected in the way they treat staff and when they profess concern for the residents but sometimes act in their own (Exec's) best interest at the expense of the residents. Staff morale is "in the basement". Executive decision making reflects a lack of experience in: – more... real estate, business, property management, facilities, construction, people management, etc. Personal favoritism rather than most qualified seems to be the way appointments are made. Executive do not have an "open door" policy that would provide for positive feedback from the staff in the field. The Executives seem to make decisions in their own little vacuum. If you don't agree, you are tagged with "not being on the bus". Don't you hate that expression! SAHA's staff is the saving grace; for the most part a good group of people. The "old timers" hold their own and do their job but have given up trying to make suggestions to improve their areas. They feel that suggestions fall on deaf ears. Continuity of mid-level management is also a big problem. People are moved around too frequently or quit. As soon as their staff become a team or they get familiar with a property they leave. Other than that it's a good place to work :) – less
Senior Housing Assistance Specialist (Current Employee), San Antonio, TX – May 22, 2013
Pros: great benefits, tuition reimbursement and pension
Cons: federally funded, not much room for advancement.
Staff under paid for multiple jobs assigned. Federally funded program which does not leave much room for advancement. This is a fast pace environment all day everyday, which I enjoy. My co-workers are all great as well as my staff. There has been so much that I have learned from this organization, which has placed me in my position today. I enjoy helping – more... clients and my staff with any concerns and or questions. I enjoy training employees or outside clients about our program. – less
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), San Antonio – September 13, 2012
Pros: good security
Cons: poor leadership
On several occasions we were advised to perform unethical procedures for applicants who complained, such as: * advise we never recieved their paperwork * advise the applicants they turned in paperwork late..when the didn't.
SAHA is a very interesting place to work everyday is a difference, working with the public one never knows what going to happen.
Complaince Specialits (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – September 2, 2012
See client review there paperwork. What I learned was that every family has their story and one learns everyday. Management is good and understanding with the employees. Co-worker we all tried to work together as a team. The hardest part there's none, only the change of management constantly. Going to work and the camaraderie in the co-worker.
your a link in a chain cant get ahead do nothing they wont leave you behind.
