    Started off good but went south quickly

    Property Manager (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

    ProsQuiet low stress situations and a lot of down time.

    ConsCompany is very unstable.
    I started working there and they had 20 properties in town and by the time I left 2 1/2 years later they were down to 4.
    I was receiving notices in the mail saying if a payment wasnt made immediately the sheriff was going to lock the doors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Non-Existent professionalism

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Ormond Beach, FL

    ProsI would really like to think of some pros but I just can't...this place is freaking miserable! If you're offered a position here I'd say run! Having no job is better than this job

    ConsNo mileage reimbursement for a position that covers 60 sq miles, district management is disorganized to the point of detriment. For a company that has no idea what they're doing, you would think they would try for a little professionalism but nope, quite the opposite!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up! Get some goals and work on them, anything to cut out the amount of disorganization

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Disappointed

    Property Manager (Current Employee) Naples, FL

    ProsYou work independently, hours are good and pay is not bad in todays economy.

    ConsNo training or support. Upper management expects you to know what your doing the first day you walk in the door. Health insurance for family coverage cost more than you make in a week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little encouragement and support would achieve your OAR promo. Take a good look at your current DM's.
