    Definitely a learning experience!

    Leasing Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company is open to employees suggesting new ideas.

    ConsTraining was way off target as to what the job entailed. Leasing consultants are mystery shopped and are required to hit numerous criteria in order to get a good rating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate training; make sure systems being trained on work and mirror that which is available on the job. Ease up on the criteria for the mystery shopping--a leasing consultant can still be effective and provide a client with a good experience without making sure they ask them a hundred questions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pay way too low for large amount of time spent on call during nights and weekends plus doing all snow removal.

    Maintenance Tech (Current Employee)

    ProsDental plan is pretty good.

    ConsYou are on call frequently for an entire week during which you have no life and can't attend to your family and the pay is way to low to compensate for that. Even if maintenance were not on call, the pay is too low. Also making the maintenance staff do the snow and ice removal on top of everything else we do for the same low pay is wrong. During this past winter some of my older coworkers got sick and hurt from the long hours working on snow removal. A decent company would have landscaping vendor do snow removal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay the workers more, especially the maintenance staff. Why do you think you have constant maintenance worker turnover...because the pay is too low and too often we have to be on call plus we have to do all the snow work. Have landscaper or other vendor do snow and ice removal.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Over Worked, Under Paid & UNAPPRECIATED!

    Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) Alexandria, VA

    ProsGreat Maintenance Staff, good benefits.

    ConsOVER WORKED, under paid, lack of leadership, VERY low employee moral, lack of good leadership, schedules and training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on employee retention, require management to go to employee relations training, have a more open door environment without retaliation from management. Respect your employees and pay them for hours worked.

    Thank you for sharing your response. Employees do tend to stay so it can pose one of those "this is a good problem to have" scenarios. As a result we try to help employees grow within their role ... More

    Not a good company to work for. The Regional Property Manager in North NJ is very unprofessional.

    Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) Newark, NJ

    ProsWorking with the residents is a pleasant experience. Meeting and helping people is the best part of working as a leasing consultant.

    ConsThe lack of respect that the regional people and the property managers show the staff is NJ area is appalling. There is no continuous training and the company does NOT value it's employees. Home Properties cares only about pleasing its shareholders and the bottom line - its earnings. To earn a promotion in the Northern NJ area, you have to be the Reg. Property Mgr.'s drinking buddy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire a better class of managers, both at the property level and especially the regional level. Value your employees - not only your RPMs and RVPs! Do exit interviews to know the true reason employees leave this company.
