Fast paced environment but small enough to have working relationships with all staff

Company pays well and has great benefits however the work environment is very hostile.

I would not recommend anyone I like to apply with Decatur Housing under the current management.

Busy work place but productive
Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Decatur, GAAugust 23, 2012
The most enjoyable part of the job was moving in new residents who were well pleased with their apartment. A typical day at work was being kept busy with daily work. I learned all aspects of human behavior the good and the bad. My co-workers always worked together to fulfill the need of the Housing Authority. The hardest part of the job was evicting families with children.

The most enjoyable part was interviewing and having great conversations.

A typical work day consist of helping bricklayers, electricians, or carpenters by cleaning up mortar, cutting bricks to a specific size, wiring light fixtures, wiring service panels, installing mini blinds and removing garbage for residential units.
