I have been working at Inland Real Estate Group full-time (More than a year)
The salary is above average for the industry!
They have great benefits!
Smaller company so you appreciated more for what you do.
Bonuses are great for the industry.
Great people employed with them who are always willing to help (other properties).
Corporate is so clueless. No one ever seems to know whats going on when you reach out. IT is useless.
They assign people to important positions who have little experience in the industry.
Training is obsolete and is through an online portal.
When lower positions have great ideas, they are always shot down.
Gives in to customers too much; and not to the right kind of customer.
Needs to develop a better reputation in the industry and develop a brand.
Needs to put more money into the property for events and major repairs.
Too many restrictions on all systems so you can't get anything done. when you email the contact at corporate you need to move forward, they ignore you or are out of the office.
Advice to Management
Look to other bigger management companies for help and examples on how to improve. You could do much better overall but are stuck in old school ways.
I applied online. I interviewed at Inland Real Estate Group.
Received an email for a phone interview. Had the phone interview with the hiring manager. The phone interview was about 20 to 30 minutes It went well so they scheduled a face to face with the same manager. That lasted about 30 minutes. The manager never asked different questions from the phone interview. I tried asking different questions a little more pointed. The manager was pretty vague with his answers. He had me submit a background check. After a three week process I received one of those generic emails that said, thank you for your interest but the position has been filled. What is even funnier is that two days after I received that notice there was a "new" job postings for that exact same position. I found it a little strange that I never received a phone call or explanation.
