Okay job
Custodian (Current Employee), Dalton, GAMay 10, 2015
Pros: Nice hours, Easy job
Cons: Bad pay
I love my managers but, the pay sucks and you don't get paid when school is out anymore unless you work summers and summer hours are bad and they don't do part time summer workers.

Not good place to work
CUSTODIAN (Former Employee), Montgomery, AlabamaApril 27, 2015
This company was very unorganized. Not a professional and a bad environment to work in. You were not given the equipment that you needed to complete the daily job assigned to you.

Overall very learning experience and great work environment.
Custodian (Former Employee), Dalton, GAApril 14, 2015
A typical day working for southern management required me to be in a awesome environment with large numbers of children and people. The job also required me to be alone without any supervision for many hours every night of the week. I was responsible for making sure the schools were cleaned properly every night.

Working for SMC...
Leasing Professional (Current Employee), Beltsville, MDFebruary 19, 2015
I love working for SMC. My co-workers are great! It feels like we're family. The residents are nice and I love what our resident service team does for them. We have events for them such as bingo nights, back to school supplies for the kids...it's an amazing feeling. The only down fall is how micro managed we are. Speaking for myself, that is, I can not work in that type of environment.

Excellent Customer Service Culture
Assistant Property Manager (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: long tenure, good pay
Cons: no supervision for leadership
Great place to work. Pays well and as well as invests in team members. Company believes in hiring from within. Tenure tends to be long due to these factors (good). however, it causes you to sit in the same position for a wile due to higher positions being held longer by tenured team members.

Very Strict place to work.
Bill Collector (Former Employee), Orlando, FLNovember 23, 2014
Pros: after collecting $10, 000.00, 10% will be your commission thereafter.
Calling on past due accounts for different projects such as collecting or settling for apartment complexes and also for video news.

What I learned there was how to be a very strong collector and collect money.

My co-workers at that time were very pleasant and were also very helpful.

The hardest part of the job was not being able to practice any type of customer service, since I do enjoy helping others in need.

The part I did enjoy at this job was able to interact with co-workers and learn how to deal with objections.

innadequate training
Manager (Former Employee), Mountain City, TNMay 25, 2014
Pros: bonus program, most weekends off, several paid holidays
Cons: huge turnover in company, difficult goals to meet, long hours and late nights when goals were not met
A typical day at work consisted of going in and calling customers who were past due on their payments, overseeing general operations of office, accept customer payments. The most rewarding part of the job was being able to assist customers and loan them money when they really needed it. The worst part of the job was the negativity you received from customers who refused to pay and the fact that the goals were set so high each month they were almost impossible to achieve. I learned a lot about dealing with different personalities. There is a huge turnover in the company I worked for so I had to learn to adjust to many different personalities which I feel I handled very well.
