    Pros

    Excellent management and maintenance staff, flexible hours, good benefits. Very knowledgeable crew that keeps it laid back while maintaining a hard work attitude.

    Cons

    Honestly, there are no cons of working here. The only real negative aspect applies to the people who aren't employed at Roland. It's a very small, family-run business so there usually aren't any openings in the year (other than temporary turnover positions).

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing. There is a reason why Roland has maintained such a good reputation.


  2. Hard work

    Pros

    great pay, get to keep what you find. Co-workers are very interesting people and one of the more respectable leasing companies in champaign.

    Cons

    You have to work long hours. Some of the places are gross and the work is not universal across each group. Can't clean your own apartment and the regular workers get to clean the nicer places. There are times with no a/c.

    Advice to Management

    hire more reliable people


  3. Great Temporary Summer Job

    Pros

    Easy to get hired for either session 1 or 2 during turnover season, Physical work but not overwhelming. Great pay for the time you put in, expect overtime which you are paid accordingly for. Free range to listen to music and very little rules other than get done what you're assigned.

    Cons

    None, it is what is. They don't hide anything. If you are willing to roll up your sleeves and get dirty cleaning up after college kids for a week or two, then its worth doing.

    Cons

    -Often a lack of organization as everything is run by students -Training for the job took a long time as different people only knew certain things -Required to work a lot of hours but you earn a lot of money

    Pros

    Roland is great for working with your school schedule. Another awesome element is the culture - super chill and fun. If you're a people person and enjoy some friendly competition, you'll do well here.

    Cons

    While they are pretty good about working around your schedule, sometimes they are late to letting you know the schedule. Also, a lot can change quickly. Communication can always be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we are students, things change (or we lack planning skills, deal with it). Don't throw all standards out the window. Some employees clearly put in a greater effort than others.
