I worked at Riverstone Communities full-time (More than 3 years)
The pros of Riverstone was having a regional as a support system at any cause. I had this when I started with the company back in 2014.
Being provided with 2 or more regional managers made it impossible to gain a set pattern when each regional had their own way of doing things, not a problem. I am one to start using or implementing whatever policy, procedure and structure set out of respect those in charge and around me and to get the job done. It was really hard to exit the company because I knew there was growth down the line, but without a GREAT regional manager along side you, you will fail, the communities will fail and the company will fail without notice. Riverstone is not a bad place to work, it's the people that you have running your organization; regional, human resource, property managers, maintenance and the list continues. Without showing that you care for each individual in the same pattern as you do everyone, it only shows the likes and well-being to some and not ALL. If you continue to sit back and view most employee as bad individuals without taking note to who is really creating the issues, you will continue to allow GREAT people to leave your organization, and I was one of them. I never had an issue with human resource as they really show the respect, care and concerns without taking one side for anything. I never had any actions taken against me during my employee with Riverstone because I tried my best to maintain and do what was right by the policies and procedures. You must find better ways to maintain who you have and not who you can gain as a new employee. I can remember hearing a regional say, "We Can Replace Them". Wouldn't you want to keep them if time and money is at a cost to the company? As a regional or property manager and all it is a duty to maintain good current employees, not run them away! Riverstone has revolving doors and this is not a great look to new comers and especially if they are ROCK STARS!
Advice to Management
This goes out to; property managers, regional, human resource and maintenance. If your attitude is controlled by what you believe Riverstone is in a negative way, you will never grow from that and will always stay in that one state of mind without room to grow. Success lies in those who believe in themselves by making a difference in your communities!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Riverstone Communities in March 2017.
I was contacted by a regional manager in Michigan via email regarding an open Property Manager position in South Florida. I responded to the questions in the email and was subsequently asked to schedule a phone interview a couple of weeks later. I conducted the phone interview with an employee from the Miami area. I thought the interview went very well and was told I would be contacted regarding the next step. Unfortunately I never heard back from anyone despite following up a couple of times via email, which was disappointing since I had researched the company and felt they were a perfect fit for my career goals.
