A typical day at UDR started with a morning meeting within the team. Then the opening of the rentable units, preparing the office for customers, and getting ready for clients. Then as customers come in, selling lease. As current renters stop by, offering customer service and problem solving suggestions.
UDR taught me to deal with all types of personalities and how to solve difficult situations while keeping all parties happy.
Porter (Current Employee) – Mission Viejo, CA – July 11, 2018
I have worked for the company for several years. While the job was initially enjoyable with reasonable pay, over the past year or so, the company has been showing signs of financial struggle. Maintenance budgets have been shrinking, residents are seeing more miscellaneous fees, and the workforce has been shrinking. Many properties are losing qualified employees and struggling to find replacements. In addition, low level positions are now being reduced or eliminated. I would only recommend working for this company temporarily.
Flexible responsibilities, decent pay
Small budgets, shrinking workforce, lack of job security
Fast-Paced Work Place with Many Career Opportunities
Intern (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – May 21, 2018
This internship provided me with the customer service skills, time management skills, and taught me how to better work under pressure in a fast-paced environment to reach a deadline. The company does a wonderful job offering opportunities for advancement and making sure to recognize success of individual employees.

I learned a lot working at UDR. It was a wonderful opportunity and helped advance my career. The people working there were great and its more about who you work with than where. I'd recommend working here to anyone.
Marketing Associate (Former Employee) – Oregon – April 9, 2018
I worked for UDR many years ago. It was my foot in the door to start my career. My supervisor training me well and when she left she hired me to follow. It was a fair company with great training. It started my career and I am very thankful.

I left UDR to to a career promotion within a different company but loved my district and would go back with no hesitations if things didn’t work out at my current job. Commission was awesome and that’s what I miss.
DISTRICT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Newport Beach CA – March 12, 2018
Very stressful job- beyond the norm. Poorly managed and very poor work culture. Property Management is an amazing career but the environment at UDR is unhealthy and not productive. Poor working conditions- excessive turnover due to lack of passion and support by the executive level .
Investor Relations/Public Relations/Event Planner (Former Employee) – Highlands Ranch, CO – February 7, 2018
I learned a great deal working for UDR. They treat their employees well and established a culture that fit nicely with my personality. There were stressful days, but I always felt rewarded for going the extra mile
bonuses, great environment, employee perks
often long hours and occasional weekends during quarter end.

First thing in the morning u have to bow to the Princess (Property Manager) then u can try to do a turn in 1 day..At ur interview they say u have 5 days to do a turn but u have 5 days to do all the turns, so if 6 people turn in keys all 6 apts have to be done in 5 days, so get ready for 10-11 hour days, week ends ,and 2 weeks on call,2 weeks off, Get ready to set a timer when doing work orders, before u enter an apt,.set ur timer and when u come out stop it.Its too bad because the office staff is great, the residents are really nice people and the cleaners awesome. You will work all these hours,,week ends, nights on call but it wont be enough for UDR.
Resident Relations Coordinator (Former Employee) – Newport Beach, CA – January 6, 2018
This is not a company to work for if you are looking for management support and encoruagement to increase your career. They are very demanding yet alwasy look for ways to avoid paying overime and compensating the employees for the hard work demanded of the job. It is unfortunate becasue the coworkers were fantastic and the culture could have been terrific but management managed to affect the overall demeanor of the team.
