This job was stressful at best and not fufilling.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Nampa, ID – April 23, 2014
I worked in the office with applicants for apartments. The contract was always read to the applicant and any questions answered. We opened the office and checked to make sure that everything was in order and working properly. Then it was time to check the apartment units that were for rent, to make sure they were ready to go and available. All the time, there were questions to be answered for the different tenants. There were opportunities for doing advancing clerical duties, The deposit was made and balance with the computer. Calls were made to tenants on issues with apartments, non-payment of rent,destructive use of the apartments.
The owners(managers) were in a different town and sometimes they were hard to get hold of, when you needed them. The co-workers and I got along great, we all knew our duties and the standards that we met for the overall good of the business. The hardest thing was having to meet with someone that was not following the rules of the complex and they either had to follow the rules or leave. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to meet with people and showing them the excellent apartments and answering questions, and being able in the spring to walk around the complex and see how beautiful it was.
Not enough management involvement.
