You must fit the mold and love hierarchy
Resident Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – May 22, 2018
The person I directly reported to was truly extraordinary, they were collaborative, creative, pushed me to be my best self as an employee and supported my visions. The culture of the company however, was very different, the language that was used within the company suggested that they were open, collaborative and creative, their actions showed otherwise. I realized early on that what to company is really looking for, are people who keep their heads down, agree with their managers, and don't make waves. They also have a "good 'ol boy" hierarchical structure, that says you MUST go through the "chain of commands" and you cannot speak to people above your pay grade. This is archaic. The culture was more about being a good cog in the system, opposed to creating new solutions and pushing the company forward. This is not the kind of environment I thrive in. If you like being a cog, than check out CHP, but if by nature, you need to innovate, create and find better solutions than I would recommend looking elsewhere.
You have the opportunity to work with incredible community members
They expect you to keep your head down and avoid making waves
