    Pros

    I love working for Mckinley. I really feel supported working here moreso that other property managers I've worked for. Budgets are reasonable and goals are clearly defined. Regional is flexible and understanding and they pay well so its not hard to keep your staff. Good benefits good culture. Hard to get into with lots of interviews which was a con when interviewing but a pro when your in. Now I know why it was so hard and love it.

    Cons

    Property managers should be more involved in budget process. Computer systems are dated and hard on remote.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep trying to improve.

    Pros

    Mckinleys the best company I ever worked for. Took this job because pay was better than drywall and love working with Mckinley. Are team is made of great people and everyone pitches in to make sure that the site looks good for the residents and don't just leave it for maintenance. Terri always makes ways to give us fun stuff and feel appreciated.

    Cons

    Snow removal and oncall are rough and we could use more guys to help in those times. Hard to keep up with turns when you gotta spend all day picking up snow.

    Pros

    Like everyone else reviewing I think the pay and benefits are awesome. McKinley gets it right by there employees on that. But more than that we get to really make a difference for our reisdents everyday. McKinley isn't just another company with hollow mottos like I've worked for before. They care about us as employees and more so they let us do whatever it takes to keep our residents happy. That's important because working for other companies upper management just hung us out to dry and get reemed by residents. At McKinley they make sure you solve the problem. I love that.

    Cons

    It's hard work. It's good to always be busy but sometimes theres a lot thrown at you. They pay you for it but I've never worked so hard before. Rush is stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More bonuses than quarterly.

    Pros

    Everything. I love my job. I did't know anything about property management until I came to McKinley and they were patient and taught me enough to get into a management role which I could never envision. They paid amazing even when I was in sales. I was skeptical until I saw it. Lease, lease, lease and get the rewards!!!! Regional team are amazing and always there to help with questions and goals. I couldn't recommend Mckinley more to anyone looking to get into property management.

    Cons

    Probably gonna have to buy more properties for more leadership opportunities to open up in regional level jobs I'd think. More input on budgets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you. Keep taking chances on good people who maybe don't have alot of experience.

    I have been working at McKinley, Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The money. Best sales job I ever had. Most companies either pay no base salary or something really low and have commission minimums and stuff. McKinley flat out pays and it's the best sales job I ever day. They don't overwork you and have a great work life balance. Upper management cares about not burning employees out because you get a lot of PTO and the holidays where the sites close. Our team is cool and fun to work with.

    Cons

    The work is fun but demanding. We lease and renew at higher rates than other companies and expect to keep getting better. That's pressure on sales people but if your good you can make great money. It's been fun watching how successful we've been over the last couple a years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a higher level of sales jobs or maybe increase commissions more based on rent increases.

    Pros

    Great people, plenty of resources to do the job, great pay, great benefits and the company is doing really well. Can't ask for much more.

    Cons

    Not a lot of cons. I've enjoyed my time at McKinley thus far and don't see any negativity. Our team is good and I think our regionals are supportive and positive.

    Pros

    They treat you right. It's hard work but you get paid for it and get rewarded. Never worked no where before where maintenance got bonuses to. Hourly pay and ot is good. Work order system is good because it lets the resident's praise maintenance when you do the work orders which usually is overlookd.

    Cons

    Alot of turns and work orders especially in the summer. Winter is no break because of snow removal. Hard work and fast turn schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more maintenance

    Pros

    The CSM, some residents, and co-workers were a joy to work with.

    Cons

    Literally no life outside of work. I would have 1 1/2 days scheduled off, though realistically it was just 1 day off, a week. The CM was pretty rude to both employees and residents. Doesn't show employees appreciation. It's kind of baffling how he even has the job. Management never stepped up to do the work I was told during my interview that I would have some weekends off, but sometimes I would have a weekday off and work one weekend day. Well, I ended up working EVERY weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of bad talking your employees straight to their face, actually offer constructive criticism. Also, please step up whenever the office is short handed, which seemed to be the whole time. Hire and train someone instead of making someone do 2 jobs and run around with their heads cut off. Also, please learn how to communicate. Employees were never in the know.
