Community Manager (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – July 13, 2018
This company will reel you in with the pay and benefits, but please stay away!
This company was the biggest disappointment in my professional career. If you would like a work/life balance, time with your family, time for yourself, this is not the place for you. No matter how many changes they made through the years to re-organize themselves or to change their reputation, the company still runs their workers through fear. You will end up doing at least 3 positions, as the turnover rate is extremely high. You will be overworked; as a Community Manager, I worked over 70+ hours a week w/ absolutely no support. The higher ups in Michigan are completely clueless or pretend to be clueless to the kind of tyranny-based management that is taking place in Orlando. If you are looking for longevity with a company, Mckinley will never be that. The morale is extremely low, no matter which property. Everyone is on the verge of quitting, everyone is looking for a new job within 1-2 months. You will live in constant fear of losing your job. You will have to fight harder and perform better to KEEP your job. This company literally represents "The Hunger Games".
Pay & Benefits
Everything else; there is nothing positive about the company.

The company is a pretty good company. Your management will vary from location to location. I was lucky to receive very great managers and team members. Pay is good for the job, no commission, but possible quarterly bonuses.
Hours are long.
Great culture, caring managment, good benifits, possibile to move up
Long hours, mandatory overtime in busy months, none allowed in slow months.

Sticking to the core values will allow you to do well with this company. You have to be prepared for change as the company is constantly evolving to enhance overall operations. Employees work hard but they are also compensated well. Resources are always readily available, and leadership does a great job with supporting its team members.

Having prospect come in every day to apply fro our lower income property. Stressful since we have traffic all day long and the application pages are long and I was the only leasing agent. Phone ringing all day non stopping.
Worked a little while ago. But as I see in the comments nothing has changed. At the time there was a fire-the-first-employee-you-see culture that still happen today. A very toxic-burn-out work environment, not healthy for nobody. Thank you for a great pay which I used to visit doctors for stress associated ills.

I wanted to get back to real patient care. McKinley offers that and much more! The team is supportive . On any given day, you will laugh with teammates. Then, there are other days, you may cry with teammates. The patients you care for come from ALL walks of life. Management, however, may not see the hardwork you do. But if you're okay with that because your goal is to make a difference if the lives of patients, this place will allow you to do so.
I have been working for McKinley for about 5 months. I think the position offers competitive pay, great team environment, and most importantly the stability I have been looking for. I really appreciate how we always put customer service first.
Team Environment, competitive pay, opportunity for growth
I was so blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of a great company, And such awesome women . What a wonderful place to work, There never was a single day that I did not want to go to work. What an experience, Wonderful team. The property was resort style, family oriented and I decided to live on property.
Worst place to work no directions how to do things , horrible , they if you don't go with the flow doing bad things and lying to residents you are out,dealing with old employees is very hard , management is horrible they want you to kiss their foots to get in their group , don't listen new employees , believe me don't even think about to work with Mckinley,,,,,, you'll find out ,,,,treat new employees like animals

Mckinley expects you to work 24 hours around the clock, whether or not you have already worked 50-60 hours that week. Management is awful as well. If you have a family that you want to spend time with, you may be able to a few hours on Sunday. Make sure you never make a decision without checking with management first, they don't allow you to be the Community Manager of your own property.

The first day is always the roughest considering that you don't know what you're walking into. Everyone spoke Spanish so it wasn't diverted. Soon as you head to the location, you are on your own. You have to be ready to work outside for long hours
Customer Care Associate/ Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – May 4, 2017
This company is extremely unorganized. I had my days when I loved my job and days when I hated my job. I would not recommend anyone working here unless you are a suck up. If you are not a favorite, you are treated very poorly. I was always told that I was a favorite but there's no room for growth, no recognition, only negative feedback if given.
