Accounts Payable Associate (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 22, 2018
Not much room for advancement nor are raised given to corporate employees. Perks and bonuses are preferred to be given to field (properties / Regional Managers). Hardest part of my job is work load and lack of structure
Worked for the company for more than two years and had difficulty communicating with corporate management about job security. When it was time for the property to be sold I felt I had a good chance at staying with the new company but was let go without any proper warning.
Communication, Job security and no job advancement
Love everything about Peak. Fast and growing, awesome corporate team, even the CEO is down to earth. Nobody makes you feel little, everybody helps you get to where you want to be. This company is amazing and I hope everybody can find a love for their company like I love working for Peak
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – East Lansing, MI – October 17, 2018
The maintenance supervisor did very little work. Spent more time with the VP and going on 2 hours lunches with he actually came into the garage. All he would do is complain about how he is overworked and underpaid and yell and scream at people for no reason. Very poor management. The only time he wanted to work is to handle complaint and complained to the residence about his employees and how he is the only one that knows how to do anything around their.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – October 13, 2018
It was a good company but we went through 5 or 6 managers in 3 years. In the end I was terminated when I got a complaint from a girl who didn't like me handling her clothes when she had her machine packed 3 times as much as it should be. Then after I knocked Like I should and went in I stated I had to grab a tool and would be back in 1 minute, they left the door ajar I announced hello Before entering again this is why.
University Edge, Leasing consultant (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – July 31, 2018
This was a very unprofessional work environment. The managers gossiped, leasing consultants did the jobs of janitors and we were paid minimum wage. They have a high turnover of employees because working there is not a great experience.

If you work for any other location other than the CWE location in MO you will have a much better experience than I had.
The property management would make you feel completely small in front of the entire team.
Because the property manager was always stressed about personal things, the energy passed down to the rest of the team and made it difficult to create a high energy and fun work environment. It was if the property manager would take out her stress on the team, instead of leaving it at the door.
I loved the management company, the tenants, the leasing team and maintenance. It was the property manager that was the issue. If the property manager was different, Im pretty sure i'd probably still be with the company.
The managment comapny itself is awesome and supportive
CWE Property Manager makes you feel very small and stressed
Peak is given the best place to work award for a reason
Property Manager (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – July 6, 2018
A typical day at work is filled with great connections with all areas of the company. There is no one group or person that an employee does not feel connected to. The welcome for new employees and the ease of the new hire process is second to none. By the time your first day rolls around you feel like you have been a part of the team for years. When you need help, they willing and graciuosly supply it and the processes that are in place are very helpful.
Hourly pay is terrible. $8/hr is really not much for you to live off of if you guys arent leasing. Our price went up rather quickly so it was hard to lease coming into the new year. We ended up getting a new manager and he is actually great. He came in and made HUGE changes in our property. I can say that was the best decision peak has ever made. And he also got us a raised bonus, ($45/lease) which is great! But now you have employees who get jealous if your leasing and would try to take your lease and make it seem as if they were first point of contact. Its really not worth the headache but it is a great experience to work to start off in like the retail field!!

I love Peak - I've never felt so at home. The training department and programs is unmatched. They strongly work to promote from within and retain the people. My supervisors have always been great, and good communicators. You definitely get a bit of red tape here and there, and sometimes I get annoyed with busywork and micromanagement, but I also understand that there have to be standards.
I'm a strong supporter of the home office crew, and I've loved the vast majority of my co-workers.

I came into a slump of the season for leases and quickly met our regional manager, as well as national leasing specialists. While they you learn a lot about what you do for a job but also the company you are a part of. Great company to be a part of if you are full time or a part time college student.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Urbana, IL – April 13, 2018
I worked as a maintenance technician at Campus Circle for a little over a year. The leasing office could be a drama show at times, with the consultants competing for leases. Overall, the maintenance manager and property manager are relaxed as long as you are doing your job. Stay busy and don't let them tell you things more than once.
Generally, the whole team tries to have fun and makes it a great place to work.
Maintenance manager is a cool dude, free food during turn, team-competitive environment
Long hours in the summer time, on call for maintenance, wealthy tenants
