My Role With Premium Properties
Resident Property Manager (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – November 21, 2017
I had been working for Premium Properties for 4 years before they decided to part ways with me, along with providing no reason for the parting. The building I lived in was the building that I was Resident Property Manager of. My role was to assist Residents with any issues they may encounter (i.e. lost keys, locked out of unit) and clean up around the building and common areas.
In the beginning it was enjoyable and my Supervisor was easy to get along with. Unfortunately, as time passed, that all changed. The main issue was that the company I was working for really had no interest in making and keeping the tenants happy, it was all about the money and turning over each unit. There was a lot of head butting about what should get done around each building. I lost a lot of fights for the tenants because of this. This entire aspect was also the most difficult part of my job.
The best part of the job though was meeting all of the tenants and becoming friendly with them over the years. Also hearing the tenants tell me how happy they were with the work I was doing and how I helped make the place feel like home again. Since my Supervisor did not recognize the work I did, it was a great feeling hearing it from the residents.
Meeting new people. Contributing to the cleanliness of the neighborhood.
Difficult Supervisor. Company unwilling to do quite a bit to make tenants happy.
