Maint. Director (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 1, 2016
They say if you leave on good terms you can always come back. Not true , left on good terms and have applied many times for positions I know I was over qualified for and not even a reply. Corporate events turn into an embarrassing situation from people grinding on eachother to embarrassing moments by company officials. Favorites within the company can do no wrong.
Community Manager (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 3, 2016
They are having growing pains and everyone can feel it from the top all the way down. There are some talented people in the Corporate office who's heart is in the right place. Then there are those that will throw you under the bus instead of relaying what is truly happening and why, because it might make them look bad.
Visual Inspector (Former Employee) – Signal Hill, CA – January 14, 2016
I didn't have to work with my hands to much as I was a integrity inspector and my job was a visual inspector as well. I learned a lot working with Conam in a new job placement as an inspector. It was an honorable position and I enjoyed it!
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Ahwatukee, AZ – July 8, 2015
Working with CONAM was a great experience that taught me a lot about the property management industry. Upper management was very supportive and always eager to teach and challenge employees to do better and grow. It was a fast paced environment at my location which I loved because it challenged me to always think on my feet and helped me grow that much more.
Property Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 4, 2015
Daily I would ensure the property looked good for potential residents, meet with the Maintenance staff every morning and go over the turn schedule for the vacant apartments. Market and lease the apartments while going through a renovation of the property. Worked on renovation schedules, inventory control and business plans. I learned how to really get a hold of time management. My co-workers were great always there to help. The hardest part was having to leave once the 100% rehab was done on the property. The most enjoyable part was putting everything together and maintaining control.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Brighton,CO – January 3, 2015
I don't necessarily see Conam as a poor company as a whole. I do however feel that the regional office here in the Denver area leaves a lot to be desired in terms of representing the companies core values and building value with their employees within the company. I had several incidents with my direct supervisor, going above and beyond to make my life as miserable as possible. I presented these issues to both the RPM and HR and had my issues initially responded to but all further attention and assessment that was promised to me left at the wayside. The company essentially sets you up for failure, my first day on the job i was asked simply to "change the locks". This was before I knew anything about the property, I didn't even know where the maintenance shop was. Their training program is horrendous. I was held accountable for systems and work orders that I hadn't even received training on their software. The regions professionalism is often called into question from a professional and moral perspective.I received my company orientation 6 mos into my employment! My particular property had numerous resident complaints about the PM. When she left the company, she was brought back 3 months later never receiving so much as a write-up for her negligence.This was after numerous other employees had complained about the employee including the RPM! The RVP always had a condescending tone and anytime she was on a property, all employee's feared for their jobs. She even went to the extent to admit in a Supervisors meeting for corporate that once you hit a Maintenance Supervisor withinmore... the company you had pretty much reached your ceiling. If I had the funding I would have sued the company for the treatment I received from my direct supervisor.
On a positive note, the pay and bonus programs are decent. But I must admit that the biggest positive from my time with the company was the regional maintenance director. Chris was knowledgeable and never shied away from answering questions or attempting to train and educate me about company policies, he was always professional and pleasant to be around while on my property and his criticism was always constructive.less
NDE/VISUAL Inspector (Former Employee) – Pasadena – June 26, 2013
clock in review up coming job (turnover) . Learn about what's coming up or to expect for the shift. Management, most with this company was fairly good. Co-Workers, confident and great attitudes. Hardest part of job? climbing down a tower. Enjoyable part of job? Knowing the client was happy.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 21, 2013
I work at an apartment complex where it is just myself and the community manager running the office. Being only two of us at a 180 unit property communication and team work is essential. Upon arrival making sure the community is clean and there are no visible eye sores is one of my first task of the day. Along with answering phones, checking emails, posting rent monies, maintaining residence retention I also sell my property to prospective residence. My manager is amazing, she has taught me the ropes on how to become a community manager. She makes sure I understand the task that I am learning to the fullest. Lucky for her I love to learn new things and I am the person who wants to make sure I am doing the task right. There are two hard part about my job. The first is renting an apartment and having the prospect be so excited and then have their rental application be denied. The second is evicting a nice residence especially if there are children that live in the home. I am thankful that happens very rare at the properties I have worked at. Which brings me to the best part of my job- getting to know my residence. I love to meet new people and find out about them. Talking to them is not only interesting but it builds a great customer relationship for the business.
