    I have been working at The Dovetail Companies part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Very flexible around school schedules
    - Probably the best job you could have while in school, very laid back
    - You learn a lot about dealing with different personalities (mostly residents)
    - Early closing hours, so you still have a lot of time outside of work to have a social life.

    Cons

    - Not really any type of training, kind of just throw you into the job
    - There is a strong presence of favoritism between management and employees.
    - Not really any opportunity for promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Try to figure out a training program for new employees.

    The corporate office makes an effort to stay involved in every realm of the company.
    Great working atmosphere

    Asking for vacation time during the months of July and August is prohibited
    Some employees are very unprofessional & it goes unnoticed

    I worked at The Dovetail Companies

    Pros

    Fun working there while in school but lots of pressure to sign new residents. However, if you succeed and excel in that area the rewards are nice.

    Cons

    Opportunity to grow and continue with the job after school if you enjoy the work and the fast pace and customer relationships formed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand that if you are working there while in school that for most people school is the number one priority.

    Good for part-time, definitely not a career

    Pros

    As a leasing agent in college, you make good money. For the most part, managers work around your class schedule. Lots of free stuff - t-shirts, koozies, bar nights. Highly discounted rent at apartments. Good commissions structure - can make more money than most college students.

    Cons

    Zero work life balance, especially for managers. Managers don't get paid a lick. Very long work days, and weekends. Constant 24/7 on call. NOT the smartest people to work with. They use accountants as customer service agents, resulting in disastrous results. Zero training for new employees. Fast food restaurants are run more efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Install some type of training, anything. Run more like a bank than an Arby's. Increase your base salary for managers.
