Head Concierge (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 4, 2018
I have a very good working relationship with planned but when it comes to advancements and hard work it goes unnoticed. To get a raise (no union) is nearly impossible. To go on vacation is very tough as well due to you have to find your own coverage and they will not supply a employee list. Using a sick day may cause friction between yourself and management, even if you use the sick days in accordance with their guidelines. I have had the pleasure of working with a few really good managers from planned companies but their turnover rate on management is very high!
No breaks, got to fight really hard for a raise, unprofessional employees
Concierge at 66 Rockwell (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 19, 2018
I worked with this company for 3 years. although I was promoted through the company, I really did not have the upper management support. Mandated double shift became the norm. Circulating managers created a hostile environment as each one tries to assert themselves to employees. ultimately, the infighting and upper management politics keeps this company from truly flourishing.
Concierge Services (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – June 13, 2018
my days at work are pretty smooth. i didn't learn any new skills at this job.on some days the packages that the residents receive are pretty heavy and that can be the only challenge picking up such large boxed over 90 pounds. The most enjoyable is seeing people coming in from work and saying hi and the smile they give me it makes the day worth it.
seeing the dog and the babies
the heavy packages the residents sometimes recieve

This company is so cheap when it comes to they pay for the hard work you are doing.they want to pay a little 15.00 dollars an hour for a superintendent position.Are they out of there mind.They are just taking advantage of people and this is an job agency not a direct company.They are also based in New Jersey and New york.since new jersey has a different minimum wage than new York they are really having fun over there taking advantage of people.i think they should be reported to the proper authorities.
The management here assured you that ur presence is necessary
Concierge (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – June 4, 2018
Wonderful company to work for. They make you feel wanted for all properties you work for. They train u on every position so that you are ready to fill in at any time Assist our residents at any time. The fields managers don’t think it strange to visit one of your sites to check in on you and update you or any new changes
Planned? Planned to keep you in the same predicament.

It is what it is with this company. No real advancement or benefits. 5 days a year paid vacation and minimum wage pay. The best thing to do is get experience if you need it and leave for a real job. Management doesn’t care about their employees and will harass you when your sick. The benefits are too expensive for what you are paid also. I am in a much more successful and happier place since leaving. This is a good job if you are right out of high school or ready to retire but for anyone else looking to advance or make money it’s a good idea to try elsewhere.
Maybe the schedule not much else
Short lunches, minimum pay for maximum effort, short vacation, no perks or benefits, no advancement, constant mistakes on payroll
Security Guard (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 3, 2018
It was not a career that was rewarding. Rich people looking at you like you're less than nothing was a daily occurrence. There were a few nice people that I encountered. But nothing special about this job.
Concierge/Security Guard (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 7, 2018
The company itself is ok but if your looking to make a lot of money this company is not for you. It's nothing you can do if someone does not relieve you. They will make you stay and sometimes those hours won't make it to your check. Hopefully the company has gotten better over the last two years but when I left they were barely keeping workers a float.
Residential Concierge (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – May 1, 2018
An average concierge occupation. Little accountability from the company which is a step above a temp agency. The only upside is that they provide permanent assignments where as a temp agency's assignments lst typically through one day.
This company is a good company to work for, you have some great OPMS and then you have the sarcastic ones who take their authority too far. The hours are completely poor, they don't work with you so make sure you are reliable to them. I recommend anyone but not highly. Goodluck!
Custodian Worker (Current Employee) – Monroe NJ – April 16, 2018
Where do I start ?? Low pay, overload you with work, no benefits, no supplies, most employees just sitting around doing nothing. This is a real low class company that employs only the feeble minded. Please don’t do it. You’ll be sorry.
