Leasing Specialist (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 23, 2018
My experience with Waterton actually began as a college student, briefly living in their Presidential Towers site. It was really excellent as far as a living community goes, given that the site has four fifty floor towers - which never really impeded their management skills. I lived there briefly as a subletter during the summer (which I think is the busiest time for the city of Chicago, especially the West Loop), and loved to come home because of how vibrant and alive the building always seemed to be. Anyhow, some years later I became a leasing agent for the same company and found my experiences to be still pleasant, yet a little more realistic. I realized that the reason residents love the Waterton properties so much is because of the diligent work that goes on behind the scenes (mostly by the lower level employees). The work environment can be a bit strained with such large properties and so many residents to tend to - but there is never a shortage of tasks or ways to be helpful on site. I really did love my time working with the company, even if it can be a bit taxing with the long days (weekend included) and slightly rapidfire leasing style. Management is overall superb, just a bit methodical to the point of seeming like well oiled robots.
Communication with supervisors/managers is excellent, great benefits
Long work days, mandatory online trainings
