I worked at UDR full-time (More than a year)
Commission structure, hourly wage, and spiff opportunities are higher than industry average for Leasing Consultants. If you're money motivated, it's a great fit. It's a publicly traded, multi-billion dollar company so the resources are there to help you thrive and keep you motivated. They do have district wide events. Christmas parties, company picnics, etc etc. So you get to interact with a lot of people in the company. They also have some decent benefits, vacation, etc. You'll gain a lot of knowledge regarding operations of property management. Definitely opened the door to my future.
Weekend work can be a little harsh. Also, some properties require the leasing consultant to also act as a concierge, so the customer service factor might be overwhelming at times. People that live in an apartment complex can be a little demanding especially in the Washington, DC area so it can be a bit frustrating.
Advice to Management
PLEASE hire a full time concierge during the day for some of your larger communities. It'll take the burden off of your front line. Also, please ensure that Community Directors know what the lease says.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UDR (Washington, DC) in October 2018.
The interview process with UDR was very smooth, and average speed. Tosha Brewer was my recruiter and set up an initial phone interview with me. Tosha was very friendly and easy to talk to. During the call we discussed my experience and what working with UDR was like. After the call, Tosha arranged an in-person interview at the community, where I met with the on-site team and managers. After the interview I was given a tour of the community, and received an offer two days later.
