    I am in my 40th year of employment with Peabody Properties. They are an excellent company from their benefits to their HR/ facilities/ management / marketing/ sales/ maintenance divisions . They hire qualified individuals from all skill sets. They are an equal opportunity employer. The executive staff of Peabody Properties takes an interest in each & every employee & their families. They have established core values & a mission for their company & its employees. Having longevity with a company should demonstrate what a wonderful company PPI is to work for. They afford their employees with an array of opportunities from educational reimbursements to training. Their mission is to help each employee achieve their goals. Peabody Properties takes great pride in not only the properties that they manage but also in each & every employee. They truly foster employee growth.

    Property Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Braintree, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Peabody Properties (Braintree, MA).


    There could have been more communication and the process took too long, 5 weeks. Each person you interacted with however was kind, friendly, and professional. The interview itself with Senior Mgt, was comfortable, allowed for questions, and I left feeling a "valued" candidate with a very positive outlook on the organization as a whole.
