    I worked at Associated Estates Realty (More than a year)


    Excellent training academy; some great team leaders in various places, not all.


    Impossible to reach budgets when important input is given by team leaders and the budget stays the same as previous year. Bonuses were not competitive and insurance was high.

    Advice to Management

    Properties age annually, listen to team leaders who know the actual market, not just by what corporate thinks the markets are. Not all competitors give actual input. Sometimes upgrades are needed to keep up with the new properties and markets. There shouldn't have been terrible communication between Executives and lower management and their teams during the "merger with Fairfield" transition. So many people were left in the dark, then we find out that many hard working people didn't keep jobs.

    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Associated Estates Realty (Cleveland, OH).


    Applied online, standard forms. Received an email asking that I take a profile test through people answers. Mundane questions asked over and over in different ways. Received a call a week later for an in person interview. After interview went for a drug test and had to wait for the background check to come back. All in all it took about 3 weeks to be officially offered the position.
