    I have been working at Continental Properties full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have only been here for about 7 months, but I absolutely love working here. My favorite part about this company is the people. EVERYONE around you wants you to succeed including my team, those outside of my department, and even the CEO. Your opinion and feedback is valued and actually taken into consideration by executives at the company. I am constantly thanked and appreciated for the smallest tasks, which really means a lot, as well as says a lot about our company culture. Managers take the time to get to know each employee in their department, and strive to ensure that their career aspirations are achieved. I could not be happier that I chose to join this company, and I look forward to what the future holds for Continental!

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but some people may not be able to adapt to our pace and expectations. With the industry we are in, we must continue to raise the bar each year to succeed. With that being said, the environment is very fast-paced and expectations are high for each and every employee.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take employee feedback into consideration when making decisions/changes, as that is what seems to allow us to continue to be so successful!

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Continental Properties (Milwaukee, WI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was close to 6 weeks long and involved a video interview, in person, phone, another phone, another video then a 7 hour flight out to the corporate office after working all day to interview the next day (which I had to take the whole day off of work) with 5 people 2 of which were in a loud busy airport where I was scheduled to take my return flight home (another 7 hour flight). 10 interviews in all and over 30 hours of my personal time plus missing an entire day of work to be told the next week they were going to go with someone with lease up experience.
