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
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – VA – April 1, 2018
Property manager wanted to micro manage everything, but missed at least 3 days a month and was never at work on time. Wrote me up for doing a job she insisted I do but failed to tell upper management she told me to do it. There was inappropriate relationships between office staff and management. Property manager would tell you to do one thing, regional would tell you to do another and then corporate would come and tell you to do a whole different one. They would write one employee up for doing something and not say anything to others for doing the same thing or worse. One of the worst maintenence companies I have ever worked for.
Good pay, great benefits.
Poor management, lack of respect, management belittles employees
This position was extremely rewarding. To meet and learn about many diverse school age children in a community. Having a position to be able to assist in their education and have a positive influence on their life.
Resident Services (Former Employee) – Virginia – January 12, 2018
I worked in Resident Services for some time and the idea of what this department does is awesome, however everything is poorly executed. It is a very cut throat atmosphere and the upline of supervisors are rude and condescending. I did not enjoy it at all.
Rude supervisors, not enough resources to help the residents, cut throat, no clear job duties
Senior and Multi-Family Housing (Former Employee) – Berryville, VA – July 8, 2017
I Only worked here for a year but I have to say everyone is so polite, must be a Virginia thing, and my RM was wonderful. He was always there to lend a hand, take a phone call, anything I needed he was there to help. You could email anyone at Corp and get a respince within 24 hours or at least, any ill get back to you when I can. They never left you hanging. 100% class act company to work for.
Resident Services Coordinator (Former Employee) – Martinsville, VA – May 11, 2017
It was not a good place to work. It was very stressful and there was no upward mobility. I would not recommend this company to anyone and I feel that the company did not do anything to help its employees.
Good organization with good employees but I was lied to.
Development Officer (Former Employee) – Florida – April 27, 2017
The organization is a good organization with good people. However, I was told that they didn't expect any production from me for 3 years but then I was let go after 8 1/2 months. In addition, I was actually doing good work.
Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – April 14, 2017
A typical day at work would be me being responsible enough to handle my daily job task. I learned the importance of safety. Management was great always willing to help. The workplace was different locations most of the time. The hardest part of the job was getting to the locations and most enjoyable part was the people I came to meet.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Portsmouth, VA – January 9, 2016
A typical day at work includes completing and filing Hud, tax credit, section8 files, managing work orders, collecting, posting and depositing income in a timely manner, filing court documents in a timely manner. My co-workers are easy to get along with, helpful,and takes our job seriously. The hardest part of my job is getting tenants to turn in recertification documents in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping people with low income acquire a nice apartment.
