Community Manager (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – June 15, 2018

Management (Former Employee) – New York State – February 9, 2018
There's so much to say. This really is the worst place I ever worked. Between the constant change of management to the inconsistencies in their procedures, you couldn't get anything done and it was a constant run around. Upper management was not readily available and it was like pulling teeth to get responses to simple requests. And, it seemed like everyone was cramming up someone's butt trying to keep their job. HORRIBLE environment!!!
Benefits were good.
Rarely got to take full breaks, constant change of management
Not enough time in the day, large range of ever changing changing responsibilities
PROPERTY MANAGER (Former Employee) – NY – October 13, 2017
A typical day could range from, showing apartments, getting pages and pages of new tenant paper work and leases signed, entering payments into the property management system, depositing checks/ money orders by scanning them into the bank, calling prospects, answering and responding to phone calls from tenants, agencies, or vendors, verifying tenant incomes, collecting payments from tentants who stop in the office to get a hand written receipt, preparing a monthly resident activity calendar and newsletter, keeping up to date on any new compliance rules, regulations or new forms, inspecting apartments, passing out flyers to tenant apartments, following up on any maintenance requests, planting flowers in beds outside of the building, inspecting the inside an outside of the building to assure it is being maintained to company standards, responding to prospect and corporate emails for information, preparing and maintaining the yearly and monthly budgets, to settling a tenant dispute or planning and shopping for tenant dinners or dealing with an emergency when computer monitoring systemns go down.
Opportunity to learn every changing industry rules and regulations, online training classes, pleasant fellow employees and tenants, never a dull moment
Not enough time to complete what is required by company and /or agencies, let alone take a break, low pay, insurance fees are decucted from pay checks weekly-not really much of a benefit
MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 22, 2017
Ambiente de trabajo familiar en todo momento. Buenos entrenamientos en todos los ámbitos durante todo el año lo cual ayudan al desarrollo y crecimiento en la compañía. Fácil poder trabajar con la administración gerencial lo cual facilita el desempeño en tu trabajo. El poder desarrollar las habilidades dia a dia, y trabajar con un equipo de personas interesadas en mantener satisfechos a las residentes de los diferentes complejos de apartamentos.
en ocasiones el personal parece poco para la cantidad de trabajo que puede surgir.
Management cut you down every chance they get. The residents are treated like children instead of adults. They'll give them something and post a note about it then say but if you do this well take it away.
Loved the residents
Management one person can ruin it all not professional at all.
Sr Project Manager (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – March 30, 2017
I approach each day with a list of important items to complete then am diverted to other projects due to other employees/departments needing information immediately. I've learned to set boundaries while still being helpful to co workers if I am the only person they can rely on for assistance. I am able to accomplish my responsibilities by utilizing methods that assist in prioritizing my work while still being an effective collaborative colleague.
Management is supportive when asked for assistance.
I enjoyed my direct interactions with the majority of the employees.
The hardest part of the job was not seeing any opportunities for career advancement nor an appreciation for a job well done. Not enough laughing at the daily events or collaborating with other colleagues.
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning from and working with my direct report.

Community Manager (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – December 6, 2016
The job itself was great. I learned how to handle all ages of residents. Management was pretty bad. They never answered their phones or returned emails if I had a question. It would usually take few days to get my answer. Their expectations were over the top. They tell you on a Monday that they need things done and give a deadline for 1 or 2 days later.
