Pros

Great opportunity for job growth.

Cons

There are some mid and upper level management structure issues being weaned out. Because ACC is a fairly new corporation this should be expected. They are doing a great job structuring.

    I have been working at American Campus Communities

    Pros

    As the headline states, this position is an easy going summer job that provides you with your own room in the dorms and meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) for the entire summer. I worked with a great team, friendly, outgoing and willing to help each other if we could not or had plans during our shift. The property manager knows what it's like to be a student, stays out of your hair and communicates with you only on a need to know basis. He's pretty relaxed himself.

    Cons

    Not many in comparison to the benefits you receive from working here. The biggest problems come from the groups that stay in the building over the summer. Some feel that in a dorm they should receive service on par with a hotel when dorms aren't really set up for that. There are times when you wish you received more information from the property mgr. as groups come to you saying they were promised this and that service.

    There are also the work shifts. The worst On Call is Saturday, because unlike any other shift you are inside ALL DAY for 12hrs. This can be killer in the summer time when you want to hit the beach or do any other daytime activities. Desk shifts from in the obscene late night hours can be hard on your sleeping habits, but you make it through with an internet movie or two. Sometimes you feel the on duty shifts get in the way of your personal life, but so will most other jobs in your life. This is still a very relaxed job/work environment. These are CONS almost anyone would accept for a summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide senior leaders or the front desk with group contract information so that someone in the building knows what the group was promised facilities wise and what they made up or are asking for last minute. Too many groups do this and it's annoying not to have the proper information.

    Send out a midsummer evaluation email stating if there are any problems or if there are none and everyone should keep up the good work.
