Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – February 1, 2018
It’s a great place to get a foot in door some where and learn the property maintenance business. Other than that it’s very stressful, regional manager never admits making mistakes always puts blame on others. They don’t give compensation for certificates earned in hvac. Don’t call HR or you’ll have a target put on your back. Maybe it’s the region I worked in but they were not organized at all. Supervisors never did much work, I had a supervisor take credit for my own work. So make sure you document all your stuff. Be careful what you say they like to twist your words around.
Great place to learn maintenance that’s it
Unorganized from regional manager down, Supervisors aren’t helpful, Low pay
Fair housing. All residents and employees should go through the same rental verification and rules. Such as criminal background. Drug free. Etc. All should be treated the same. Respect and grateful for a job well done. No not at all. U can be at 100% complience, above and beyond ur goals, but ur name wont appear anywhere. The pay is an insult with someone with a degree, knowledge and skills . Years of experience!!?? If a conflict arrisses it w ont be addressed in a suitable time frame. So I am penalized for it? I emailed IT. I spoke many times to my supervisor and still today had problems that is out of my control but affects my ability to perform my job the way i should be able to. I take very detailed notes and right now I'm so very thankful I did. Plus made copies of all I have done well. Still waiting for answers I asked over a month ago. I was told the training is right there on my computer, everyone else got a weeks worth and if I started to train I was pulled and asked to do something else. More than a just a few times.
Bonus if you keep track and see them.
Pay, employee discount on rent, not eveeyone dollows the same rules and process.
Community Manager (Current Employee) – MN – June 21, 2018
You will wear a lot of different hats in a smaller community. Staffing issues for one person site you will run into will be coverage for vacation and PTO request. Also, advancement opportunities are uphill battles if you are running a smaller site less than 150 units. nepotism is a reality at this company. Now for the pros pay and benefits are on par for the industry. Residents are a pleasure to work with.
When I was hired there was a manager for about a week. Then they sent over a another mgr. from a different location every week. I could not even do my training correctly. I worked mostly by myself. They have a major bug problem that was not getting addressed correctly. They have alot of work they need to do at that property. Would not recommend working there.
This Company showed so much appreciation and made you feel like you were a part of a family. The Manager was second to none and miss working with here. The upper management was amazing and always showed appreciation to you and your team.
Home Office Employee (Current Employee) – Home Office – October 13, 2017
There are two sides of the company: home office support and on site management. Regarding home office support, the work day is a classic Mon-Fri 8am to 5pm with an hour for lunch. The coworkers are great, mainly because the president has maintained the down-to-earth culture he grew up with on a farm in North Dakota. He hires home office workers that are qualified, hard-working, collaborative, and willing to serve others-especially their coworkers. The caveat to this conservative culture is that it is slow to adjust and adopt worker-focused initiatives that are becoming commonplace like standing desks, etc. The culture is also unique in that as a small to midsize family company, their is limited or slow-coming opportunities for career advancement, depending on the home office department you are in. Although career advancement in the home office is slow to come, compensation is made competitive at regular and appropriate intervals.
Competitive pay, great co workers and company culture
Slow to adapt employee-centric workplace trends, limited advancement opportunities
Community Manager (Current Employee) – Minnesota – September 28, 2017
I have worked for this company now for a little under a year and in multiple different roles and am extremely happy with my experience. The home office and everyone in the field are such wonderful people and truly care about you as an employee.
They dont follow what they preach. People dont matter. All about the money. They treat employees like they are replaceable and of no value. Upper management are power hungry and speak to their employees like they are nothing. If you don't fit in their perfect box you wont last.
Upper management, unorganized, no compassion or morals
This is the worst place I have EVER worked! I never write reviews where I work but this place.... I have to! Management- no clue of how to manage an office, people, or telling the truth. Management plays favorites, games, lies to tenants, I had to fight for pay on hours worked and the list goes on...
Commision if you can rent on the spot other wise you lose!
Nasty Bug infested buildings, no benefits, not truthful on hire
Community Manager (Former Employee) – Clermont, FL and Ypsilanti MI – June 10, 2017
One of the best companies I've ever worked for. They encourage they employees to reach their highest potential and they really do want to see each employee succeed. I worked for them twice and both my Regionals were GREAT! They are still and will always be my mentors. It's a growing company but still has that small company feel. The President knows you by name...which says a lot.
Community Manager (Current Employee) – Saint Cloud, MN – May 24, 2017
Timberland Partners is a great company to work for if you are a hard working, highly motivated, professional that wants to be a part of a fast paced, and growing company. There are many opportunities for advancement and additional training. When you first start with the company, you are paired with a mentor that helps you learn the ins and outs of your position. The home office team is supportive. The president is outstanding and he truly cares about his employees. What makes the company great though is all of the hard working individual teams at the sites, service teams, leasing consultants, and community managers that work to provide an outstanding living experience for the residents.
Great team members, supportive leadership, training, career advancement opportunities
hard work and no gratification from anyone in leadership roles
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Danville, KY – May 5, 2017
no real reason to try to get a job here because you never move up and you will stay a temp unless the few full time workers they do have either quit, get fired , or retire. no room for growth with this company and no benefits.
I apologize for your poor experience. Can you please advise where you worked? I noticed you have a location in Danville, KY. We don't have properties in Kentucky and do offer benefits to all of our full time employees.
