Decent place to learn the industry but not financially rewarding
Site Manager (Former Employee) – Pageland, SC – June 9, 2016
As an on-site manager, the typical day lasts the full twenty-four hours despite the fact that it is considered a part time position. Although the tenants at the property I managed were overall wonderful people, they would call me after hours and stop by my home when I was off duty to tell me about things that should have been directed to maintenance. The company has its own online "academy", and the trainings provided are very useful for learning the business. The president and vice president of the company were both very knowledgeable. I believe that following the resignation of the previous regional director, the company began to go downhill in this territory. My primary coworker was the maintenance caretaker. There were three over the course of my four years. The first was there for about twelve years and truly made it feel like we were a team in caring for the property. The other two were not there quite long enough to develop any attachment to it. I think it is important to have a heart to help people if you want to keep your sanity in the on-site position. There will be stressful days, stressful weeks at times, but the reward is knowing that you are helping to provide people with affordable housing.
Working near home, training, interacting with residents
Low pay, no room for advancement
