Don't be fooled by free apartment!
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 23, 2017
ZERO work life balance as a maintenance guy. This job totally consumes your life and every other maintenance guy there is burnt out. They don't pay any better than other property management company but the main issue here is they really don't care at alll about their employees. Very High turnover, the only ones who stay are the ones trapped by the "free apartment" which you get paid less if you live on site but they don't pay you enough to live within 20 minutes of the property but expect you to be on call and respond at all times of the night, every night, multiple times, without sleep and go to work and keep working by yourself because they don't hire enough people to upkeep luxury standards. They don't seem to understand that when you triple rents, tenants have high expectations but they refuse to spend a dime on workers to meet that expectation and they seem to think that changing the staff around will solve the issue. Upper management is very incompetent because they never lifted screwdriver in their life and have NO idea what it takes to never sleep, work hard physical labor, and never get to leave the property...all to make unfair pay.
They still pay 90s wages in 2017 Denver market but can't afford to pay better when they triple rent and rip off tenants. I get it's a business but there is a lot of greed in this company. Wait for your 40 cent raise...then they have a conference bragging how they have 11 BILLION in buyer power this year.
Happy job searching!
Free apartment not really free, low pay, way too much work for amount of employees, discriminating and hostile environment, no sleep, time lost from family, high turnover, political
