Worst employer in 20 years of employment
Report Writer (Former Employee), Greenville, SCMarch 18, 2014
Pros: middle management
Cons: upper management takes credit for work done and blame shifts for things their own fault.
This company has severe Project ADD.I worked at their corporate headquarters. They had no clear direction. One day I would be working on one project the next day they would cancel that project and have me working on something entirely differently. I was hired under a position title that I never even did the job for. There was confusion and misdirection – more... and blame shifting every step of the way. I was fired at a moments notice for someone else's mistakes to cover them up. When interviewing I would ask for a chance to meet everyone in your chain of command before accepting the job, that would have saved me alot of trouble.

This advice would be to the CEO or CFO. Check the reputation of the companies you hire your upper management from. I found that someone came from a disreputable company with a very high turn over. Also, keep upper management from micromanaging those that middle management should be handling. You have good middle management that should be filling upper management positions. – less

Branch Manager (Current Employee), Anderson, SCAugust 18, 2013
Pros: advancement oppertunity and values
Cons: long work hours
My day starts with a short meeting with my employees share the plan I have made for the day. I also delegate who should do what. I spend most of my day talking to customers and making credit decisions at the same time as getting my employees to follow me and train and equip them with the skills they need to manage. The hardest part of my job is balancing – more... out how much time I spend at work. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to influence other people and educate them on how important credit is and getting to know my customers. – less

Gregarious Personality.
Administrative Leasing Professional (Current Employee), Silver Spring, MDMay 1, 2013
Pros: i love the company and it's training process.
Cons: my scheduled days of the week.
My day is typically fast paced, I've learned to multitask and prioritize my work load, essentially making a productive work week.
I do my best to lead by example which primarily creates a healthy work environment amongst my team-member of co-workers.
The hardest part of my day is late mornings up until early afternoons when the traffic is high with – more... phone calls, future residents as well as current residents and contractors.
What I enjoy the most from my job is knowing that I have made an impact on someones life, turning an upset resident into a calm and appreciative resident. – less
