    I worked at Associated Estates Realty full-time

    Pros

    Experienced a very difficult learning experience

    Cons

    Unfortunately my experience was not great. No support from the corporate office, but again because the corporate office was in another state it could have been that they did not have a clue of the incompetent employees that they had hired to be in charge of their properties. If you worked hard, the credit went to others. Very stressful environment with very low pay

    Advice to Management

    CEO was very polite on his property visit
