Definitely a learning experience!

Leasing Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at Home Properties part-time for more than a year

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

ProsGreat Maintenance Staff, good benefits.

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

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

I have been working at Home Properties full-time for more than a year

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.

It was good.

Leasing Consultant (Former Employee)
Vienna, VA

I worked at Home Properties

ProsPromotions can happen pretty easily as long as you know the right people.

ConsPM's do not typically share with the leasing staff changes that will be happening...very tiered oriented instead of being a teamwork office.
