    Pros

    Really good company to work. They supply uniforms including work boots, spring and winter jackets, hats ect. They also are very safety oriented so you arent expected to do a two man job on your own or anything that might seem dangerous.

    Cons

    The starting hourly rate is low. The medical insurance is also not so great. As a single guy it cost me around $60 per wk out of my pay and high co pays when I need to use it. It ends up being pretty expensive if your salary is already fairly low.

    Advice to Management

    The management at the property where I work is very good. They are friendly and treat their employees well. Even their slogan is "home safe tonight"

    Pros

    Meeting all kinds of people and you are able to grow within the company and advance to a higher position.

    Cons

    Low compensation and long hours would be the cons, also having to work weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Offer higher compensation would be the way to go to attract quality people and make them stay longer.

    Pros

    great benefits. The insurance was affordable and great quality. The company offers many intensive to do your job wells

    Cons

    varied schedule, low pay.Great company, but the sites get less perks then the corporate office. If a holiday is on the weekend you do not get off.

    Advice to Management

    Close on major holidays. Keep up the bonus. Make more consideration for employee safety, for example, showing apartments late at night

    Pros

    I started off at Home Properties as a Waitlist Compliance Specialist, then became the Office Book keeper. This is a company you can definitely grow with.

    Cons

    My only challenges were some of the resident and learning how to follow the compliance rules of HUD

    Pros

    The actual leasing part of the job - finding a home for families - was fun. I enjoyed most of my co-workers and the residents.

    Cons

    Given too much work and too little time to do it. Too much delegation. No downtime. Worked pretty much every weekend - and since managers have every weekend off, the weekends were short staffed and could be very stressful at times. Sometimes had to work overtime without getting paid.

    Advice to Management

    The training in the corporate office was great, but there needs to be a better in office training program for new hires. I was often left to figure out my job, make mistakes, then get told how to do something instead of being clearly shown what to do. Also managers encouraging employees to come in early and stay late without getting paid is illegal.

    Thank you for your feedback. I have to agree, finding a home for families can be fun. Home Properties would never support or expect employees to work without getting paid. I encourage any employee to ... More
