Great Organization; both Mission and Structure

Property Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at National Church Residences full-time for more than a year

ProsThis organization has an amazing set of online policies and procedures that never leave you guessing on how to proceed in any situation. Management is very supportive and available. The organization has a mission that is innovative, compassionate, and adaptive to an aging America. The only reason I left is because they didn't have any properties where I relocated to.

ConsJust like any organization there are some downsides, but they are negligible compared to how you feel at the end the day in a great organization.

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

Unbelievable waste of time. The most you'll ever work is 3 years.

Maintenance Tech I (Former Employee)

I worked at National Church Residences full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe only pro was the first month. training and meeting all the new residence assuming responsibility, Then finding out the company has back bills,low pay,impossible turnover and no way to complete your job duty's because to many rules and zero cash.

ConsOverworked crab fest ,low pay, bad management,unbelievable write ups, managers lie about everything, You have to sue the company to get your benefits,
No one listened in management,the paychecks were all goofed up and there was no way to view your log in or out. Vacation was not paid, sick-days not paid on time.
Surf job openings proves the fact Ohio and VA is the worst possible place to work. during a near depression work goes unfilled because the word has got out about this employer.

Advice to Senior ManagementDuring my 3 year tour I worked for 3 different boss's . witnessed 5 wrongful terminations.
My advice to management is to cease and desist, You cannot run a company when your employees are training every 6 months. Your turnover rate is beyond burgers 400%
In my division YOU terminated quality elder employees for non quality young employees.
(directly against the advice of warren buffet who says the young employees have horrible grades and lack of ambition).
You as management haven't bent to listen, and when you did listen you devoured the wrong info hook line and sinker.

Sr managers who treat their staff with disrespect, HR turns a blind eye

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at National Church Residences

ProsDecent pay. Good corporate mission.

ConsFavoritism is blatant and bad behavior by certain Senior, long time management employees is prevalent. HR seems to feel that their job is to argue that it isn't the case when brought to their attention rather than advocate for the employee. Steer clear of employment here unless you are desperate... And keep your resume updated.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not treat employees as if they are expendable. Do not condone a culture where power is amassed into the hands of a few ladies who behave as if they are Jr High School bullies. Consider fielding some genuinely anonymous feedback from employees about how they are treated by their boss, bypassing the protective 'good ole girl' network of HR leadership.

Potentially great company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at National Church Residences full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVery good resouces, knowledgeable re: future directions of housing, great opportunity with potential growth, impressive employee benefits and above board standards. Motivational and direction based company and highly reccomended for beginning leadership based opportunity. Company values are excellant with high moral standards.

ConsManagement seems to get lost in it's growth and seems to get lost in basic communication with it's employees at times. Wants uniform activity across the country whether big city or small rural communities that is not realistic and sometimes sets programs up to fail because of their inability or desires to see the differences. Quick to criticize but slow to praise. Often criticism comes from their own inability to communicate what they want or expectations from individual sites . If employee is quick to realize that they will be left to figure out the expectations with no direction or direction which is dependant on whether or not they have a good manager then they will succeed, if not the road will be rough. Frequent changes from upper management are expected with reorganization so adaptation on a regular basis is to be expected. Often asked to do extra collection of information with no clear direction or indication as to why and employee is left to re figure the data on a regular basis depending on who gave the initial direction. Company seems to be lost in it's size.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more initial training and clearer expectations in the beginning of employment. Recognize employees strengths and take advantage of employees abilities and their individualism. Communication seems lacking with basics but is great for communication as far as what will be irrelevant for most. Get to know your employees better and they will perform better. Treat employees the way that it is expected that employees treat our individuals.

It's a place to develop your skills and receive some valuable e-training and skills.

Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at National Church Residences

ProsNational Church Residences is Christ centered organization. I agreement wholeheartly with their misson and their vision, which is mainly to provide housing for an aging society.

ConsNot enough support staff to assit on properties. On smaller sites the manager is responsible for performing the duties for all the job titles. Example, leasing agent, compliance manager, assistant manager, and manager. It's even more difficult when one manager is hired to run two sites, which doubles the duties to be performed. There is also not enough contact between site management and leadership.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement might want to make themselves more available to on-site staff with additional training to strengthen employees where they may be experiencing difficulty meeting company expectations.
