    I have been working at Weidner Apartment Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Weidner is a company that encourages growth within the organization. They are amazing at noticing your strengths and helping you build on them. On the opposite spectrum, they are also great at helping you strengthen in the areas you need improvement. I've worked in property management for almost 11 years and have never worked for a company with so much heart and dedication to it's cause. They truly care for their employees and their residents. We have a heart for what we do here and it shows in every aspect of what we do. Team and personal recognition are something that regularly happens. I feel appreciated in the workplace and supported.

    Cons

    I honestly do not a single bad thing to say. I just wish we had more properties in the Northern/Eastern states for when my husband retires from the military.

    Phone interview first and then an interview in person with basic questions. Mostly questions that will show your integrity and skills with decision making. Will be an easy interview if you take your time and answer questions to your best ability.
