Service Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 11, 2018
I truly don't remember how the interview went, but I do remember that it there where questions asked on how ( I would go about problem solving and what did I in enjoy most about maintenance) maintenance has been my life for over 37yrs.from building to renovations.
Assistant Community Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 18, 2018
First Communities may be an amazing company but my suggestion is to check who the owners are and the regional is for the property. I love the culture of the company but the particular location I worked not so much. The manager made sure not to take any responsibility for anything. Don't low ball yourself with the pay. You will be responsible for so much while the manager is making a little over double!
First Communities doesn't make anything good/better
Leasing Specialist (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 12, 2018
Through a period of time, you will notice upper-level management/maintenance change to appease the appeal of the landowners. It's a pony show between management and maintenance that tenants can ride on daily as a courtesy for their rent payment. Many disagreements behind closed doors go unresolved with no next level managerial support. This is a company that truly believes that strength is in numbers and that the truth is not a foundation for moral practices in their various levels of operations. If only First Communities knew when to bow out like it should have instead of creating an inhouse group to cover flaws.
Good work schedule, Social Engagement is achieved, whether it is good or bad.
Lack of Ethics and adherence to their own rules and regulations.
Leasing Manager (Former Employee) – Lithia Springs, GA – June 22, 2018
I love the structure that First Communities offers and benefits. You can typically know how much that you will be getting paid. Schedule vacations and coverage. Willing to let you grow and providing marketing material to grow your business.
Vendors who are approved easy to get your job done Love Yardi
Comissions were pretty low for the cost of apartments.

maintenance supervisor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 14, 2018
The work was challenging but not overwhelming. Great coworkers to work with . I learned all about property maintenance and customer service towards tenants The hardest part of the job was traveling all over the country. And the compensation/pay wasn't adequate. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a completed thorough job and seeing happy tenants satisfied with your work.
Community Director (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, Fl – March 8, 2018
Never for a moment have I ever felt like a number on a spreadsheet, I have incredible leaders who continue to help me grow and advance in my career. You get out what you put in, so if you are just here to collect a paycheck it's probably not the place for you. Strong work ethic, dedication, drive and loyalty are keys to success. If you show that you want to succeed, they will help you get there. Culture is fun and inspiring.
Community Manager (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – February 22, 2018
First Communities is a Great company you just need to make sure what protfolio you are in. Some are self managed and make to many changeds to the rules and the upper management staff so you never have job secuity, if you do not play by their rules which are not always the correct rules you are out.
Leasing Agent (Former Employee) – Reserve at Twin Oaks in Clarkston, GA – December 11, 2017
I enjoyed every minute of being a leasing agent. This industry is perfect for go-getters who enjoy counting commission! Residents are the nicest most of the time, especially if you treat them the way you would want to be treated by your property managers.
