    Busy work everyday but you can not really learn something

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
    Vienna, VA

    ProsProvide you 10% discount of your rent if you rent the apartment from their communities

    ConsMany people seems busy but they did not work efficiently. Supervisors are demanding, giving a lot of unnecessary pressure. The company use very traditional way to manage their files.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The best and the worst type of family business

    Associate (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsEveryone genuinely cares about you as a person. Everyone also genuinely cares about the future of the company- but doesn't have the best way of showing it or have the best methods. Generous flexibility with personal time. There is also a great culture of employee-initiatives being made into standard practice.

    ConsVacation days for beginning employees are brutal: no vacation for a certain number of months, then under five for the first year. Management in the corporate office seems to be different from the off-site management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate the off-site management and better train managers to handle conflict.

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

    Unheard of...

    Janitor (Current Employee)
    Wytheville, VA

    ProsThere is paid vacation time and the option of a full 40 hour work week.

    ConsManagement was more concerned with control than managing. Janitotial service always being understaffed remaining over comlicated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven management has roles and assignments that should be followed.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Job seeker beware

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMiddle management was great. Expectations at middle management were realistic and honestly there is some middle management that should be running the show rather than being micro managed by their upper management.

    ConsProject ADD.This company has no clear direction. One day I would be working on one project the next day they would cancel that project and have me working on something entirely differently. I was hired under a position title that I never even did the job for. There was confusion and misdirection and blame shifting from upper management every step of the way. I was fired at a moments notice for someone elses mistakes to cover them up. When interviewing for a position with this company ask for a chance to meet everyone in your chain of command before accepting the job, that would have saved me alot of trouble.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis advice would be to the CEO or CFO. Check the reputation of the companies you hire your upper management from. I found that someone came from a disreputable company with a very high turn over. Also, keep upper management from micromanaging those that middle management should be handling. You have good middle management that should be filling upper management positions.

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

    work at covington

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

    Prosthey have a great salary to start out. it gets better if your a manager of a branch. overall everyone works as a team. love the job

    Consthey have a weird bonus scheme for asst. mgr. its call chinese overtime. what it is really just the more you work the less your overtime is paid. for instance. you work 80 hours a week you have a salary of 800. that equals out to $10 a hr. but you work 96 hrs the whole week. they take a percentage of your overtime from the first and second week and come up with this crazy formula so the first week you had 9 overtime that pays at 5.45 hr. the second week your 7 hrs overtime is 4.85 hr. little weird

    Advice to Senior Managementchinese overtime to the csr. not the assistant. why should the csr get time and a half?? the asst has more hanging over his head than csr. and alot more hours into collections and just being at the office. reward the asst. maybe not time and a half but this chinese overtime is just crazy!!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
