The average starting salary for a leasing consultant is $12.00 per hour. You receive $50.00 commission per new lease agreement, and $25.00 commission per renewal lease agreement. If you are a top sales performer, you may also be able to negotiate 25% off of your rent if you live on site. Full-time employees enjoy a great health insurance pkg provided by Cigna, and have paid sick, and vacation benefits that accrue based on the hours that you work. Part-time employees receive no benefits, paid vacation time off, or paid sick leave, however they do receive commission as well as renewal bonus. Some additional perks are through the vendors used by the properties, as they also pay commissions when you recommend and sell their services. Working for this company in a full-time position would be my recommendation, as the benefits and pay are great. Berkshire believes in promoting from within, and many employees of the company have been with the company for many years because of this philosophy. I have seen this first hand. However, I would not recommend working for this company as a part time leasing consultant. Part time leasing agents are used by this company to support properties that are not big enough for a full leasing staff. So, your job will be to provide the Property Manager and Assistant Manager (if their is an assistant manager) relief on the weekends, and for their paid holidays or sick days, or to work extra hours if occupancy goes down. You get NO benefits, and are expected to except part time status, even though you may be pressured to work more than 35 or even 40+ hours per week regularly with no pay. When occupancy is up, you go back to 25 hours scheduled, yet continue to work extra hours for no pay. Also, management makes no secret of letting you know that "everyone" works more hours than what they are paid for. It is expected. Part time with this company is brutal and thankless.
