Peak Campus – Why Work For Us?


Founded in January 2011, Peak Campus is the second largest privately-owned student housing management company in the United States. We currently manage over 48,000 beds across 99 assets valued at over $2.6 billion for investors in key college markets spanning from Maine to California. 

When it comes to professional student housing management and development, Peak Campus stands out. We are an institutional-grade student housing company, with a seasoned staff that has extensive experience and a track record of successful, long-term relationships with private owners of student housing assets. Peak Campus takes great pride in our ability to very selectively partner with owners and investors to help drive property performance that will lead to future success and opportunity for both parties.

Open Letter to Current Associates, Former Associates and Potential Candidates,

Thank you, each of you, for your candid reviews of Peak Campus on Glassdoor.com.  I am grateful to those of you with positive things to say.  I strive daily to make Peak an employer of choice and foster a culture where people matter most.  As I have said time and time again, we wouldn’t be where we are today without each associate around the country owning it, being the best, doing the right thing and providing industry leading customer service.  I am honored to work alongside each of you every day. 

I also value the feedback from those of you who came to this site to get an unpleasant experience off of your chest and those of you who provided constructive feedback for our Company.  As I truly believe we are a “people business” and as humbling as it is to see negative feedback, we want you to know we heard you and we will continue to be an organization where “good just isn’t Peak enough”.  We will continue to be an organization that invests in its people, provides world class training, and strives to make every associate’s experience at Peak world class.

If you are here and desire a career path in student housing then I encourage you to strongly consider an opportunity at Peak.  As a national Company with an industry leading reputation, we look forward to the Company’s continued success.  Should you join our Company, I am confident that where you are in your career today will only be the start of greater things to come. 

Thanks for reading. 

All the best,

Bob Clark, CEO

Peak Cares offers a company-wide challenge that encourages our entire portfolio to provide charitable services towards local organizations.  Throughout the year, various stories and pictures around the country are shared with our Peak Cares committee. One charitable organization is selected as Peak’s service partner of the year, and the property that volunteered with the organization is selected for the “Spirit of Service” award, which is presented at the Annual Leadership Conference.  The properties also organize “Clean out for a Cause” during move-out and move-in so that residents can donate items to local organizations, as well as donation of toys to “Toys for Tots” during the holidays.  In addition to volunteer opportunities, Peak offers fun activities for all of its employees for team building or to simply get a break from the office.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Peak Campus in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email for an in person interview later that week. The manager was very friendly and gave me alot of information before hand. The in person interview went great and lasted over an hour and a half. I was told I would be contacted the next week for a second interview or if they were moving forward with other applicants, but she reiterated I would be contacted either way. The next week I didn't hear anything, so I emailed her and was told the regional manager was out of the office, so they hadn't made a decision. A couple weeks went by, and still no information. I reached out again and was told by the manager I met with she didn't have any information, but would check into it and get back to me. That was two weeks ago. It's been 5 or 6 weeks, and I never got a call or email either way. I guess it is safe to assume I didn't get this role, but the process was unprofessional.
