Some managers don't belong in that position.... no management skills treat employees and residents very badly.... very rude..... others let them slid... residents are living here to have a better life... miss treated... when a manager talks down to people it makes for a bad work environment
Property Manager (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – December 9, 2017
Great place to work if you are dedicated, honest, hard working and treat people with respect. Over the past few years there have been a number of changes in leadership, with the most recent changes being very positive. Paid time off, pay and benefits are extremely competitive and fair. The company is growing and very focused on employee engagement. They can do better job communicating messages from corporate to the sites and making site staff feel more a part of the Winn team. In some ways a corporate feel but still family owned. Overall very good employer.
Benefits, pay, job security, opportunity to travel or relocate
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Ft. Campbell Ky. – November 26, 2017
I started working for Winn through a temp agency at $13.00 p/h thinking surely as qualified as I am as a maintenance tech I would get $17.00. All they will pay is $15.00. I've spoke to my coworkers and some who've been there years and are very productive are still getting under $16.00. The time off is good, but if you've got no money to spend on vacation what good is it. So anyway, you've been warned.
Executive Legal Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 16, 2017
Overwhelmed with work that didn't pertain to your position, which I didn't mind because I learned a lot but they don't like to pay. Good team to work with, generous with time off but don't like to pay overtime.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Beaufort, SC – November 16, 2017
Horrible plain and simple. Highly unorganized management who does poor planning and is always lying to their workers. Poor compensation for the amount of work and NO RAISES! All management does is smoke cigarettes all day and can never admit when they are wrong about anything. It’s an everybody for themselves environment. Only 30 minute lunch even on 10 hour shifts. Union contract is in place but they’re always going against and do a lot of underhanded things. Please save yourself some time and energy before thinking about applying to this company.
Full-time Logistics Specialist (Current Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – November 14, 2017
You work from 7am-3:30am, as a warehouse clerk, your customers are your technicians. You make sure you provide their daily parts, place special orders and maintain item accountability, prepare reports and other documents. The bad thing is, everyone thinks you don't do anything else because you are in a building with AC. The warehouse is very relaxed.
Employees are great and understand each other
Pay, some employees get paid the same amount doing half the others are doing.
On the job training, stressful and lots of corporate reporting. Winn places higher value on training, the environment and culture is very busy and a lot of last minute task are passed down from corporate to all site staff.
Cleaner/Maintenance (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – September 30, 2017
Managers should take anger management classes. Learn how to Manage employees. Never say anything nice. Always negative never gave praise for doing something good On call every two weeks is difficult when you have a family
Interact with diverse clients to help service their needs.
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 23, 2017
It was good to work with a company that provide housing to low income residents. Winns followed the compliance regulations to ensure that each person that applied had a fair chance as well as the lottery. It was very busy but fulfilling to because you had multiple tasks and each day was different. Some days, I interview the clients, review applications, collect application & credit check fees, run credit check & tenant report, show apartments, check apartments for repairs, and prepare leases for lease signing which is an all day affair.
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – September 5, 2017
The training I received at Winn molded me to the professional I am today. They are intense with the workload but it has challenged me to prioritise and balance work and life. Lease ups are great and its compensation but starting salary could be better. The employee's are welcoming and willing to train with no hesitation.
Senior Development Accountant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 26, 2017
Over the past year, I have had a miserable time with my manager. He is not helpful at all. He likes to micromanage. He throws the employees on his team under the bus to make himself that much greater. He harassed me over not paying for a $700 course that I would be reimbursed for 4 months after paying the bill. I could not afford it as my spouse was out of work and it was none of his business. He kept badgering me with "I thought you wanted to grow and learn in this company"
It is a low income based property of 198 units and the other property is a section 8 property and I work between the two one is more challenging than the other, but I love working with the residents, assisting them in how ever I can to make their lives a little less difficult.
A typical day might be helping fill out job applications, trying to find rental and/or rental assistance, seeing where I can get free food for them, passing out flyers about an upcoming event I am bringing to the properties.
The hardest part is convincing the residents to participate more in the events that I bring to the property.
The most enjoyable is when if it is only 3, 5, 10, or 15 of them satisfied with their day then I'm happy also.
