always something to keep you busy
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  San Marcos, TXSeptember 21, 2017
community manager and maintenance supervisor always have something for you to do. a typical day at work consists of trash duty, work orders and any other work the manager has for you. most enjoyable part of the job is that you dont have a supervisor standing over your shoulder all day long.

Poor work/life balance
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Collins, COAugust 21, 2017
Constantly fielding complaints from customers and management. Management doesn’t want any complaints from customers, customers don’t want to pay rent and complain when you try to collect, a never ending cycle.
Pros
Free housing
Cons
Everything else

wonderful place and company to work for
Guest services coordinator (Former Employee) –  Narvon, PA 17555July 27, 2017
I loved every minute working at Lake in woods. We had previously been seasonal campers there. The facility is a five star resort and the customer service is exceptional. Most weekends the campground was full to capacity and all personel were kept very busy. The atmosphere was electric. Most activities were for the children and went on all weekend long. From ceramics to mini-golf tournaments, pet parades. Each weekend was a different theme with some form of live entertainment.
Pros
able to use all the facilities ammenities when not working
Cons
none

not a good company to work for
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Traverse City, MIJuly 15, 2017
although the people you work with are good people the company itself cares less about its workers. upper management are arrogant and self-serving. the work its self is fairly easy.the hardest part of the job is wanting to get up in the morning to go to a nowhere job. the most enjoyable part is the end of the day when you get off.

Typical day at work
Office Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Marcos, TXJune 14, 2017
Fast paced environment, always busy which made time fly, the best part of working for Sun Communities was the staff. We were such a small staff that we were like family. Sun Communities cared about their employees. We were visited regularly. Sun Communities cared about making people feel like if they were valued and invested back into the property to ensure homes were safe, repaired when required and gave people the opportunity to be able to buy the home they rented for so many years.

Not a healthy environment
Assistant Resort Manager (Former Employee) –  Naples, FLMay 13, 2017
Company policies are not followed. Advancement is difficult if you are not well liked. Professional abilities were not considered when decisions making was made for advancement. Depended on who you would follow and who you would not.

Life Balance not existent...Corporate Culture good
Manager (Former Employee) –  United StatesMarch 10, 2017
From my limited time with the company, this area has a "throw hours to it mentality", meaning just work more to fix the problem.

Pays is adequate and if you work toward your goal the potential is there to make a more than adequate salary.

Depending on your role and how you handle stress may be how you to decide to work here.

Meeting goals are more important to them than making ethical decisions.
Pros
Fair pay and corporate culture
Cons
Do whatever you have to do to meet your goals
