    I have been working at EdR Collegiate Housing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The training is unmatched, I've held many positions with EdR and other companies and nobody can match the amount of training that they give. The support that you have from the home office is fantastic, they really give you all the tools that you need to be successful. It's a friendly and fun environment to work in and really feels like a family.

    Cons

    Often times it feels very much like a numbers game, always pushing rate even when your market can't necessarily handle it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great support to your teams!

    Pros

    Easy and very convenient job while living on the property

    Cons

    The "Managers" at this location do as they please. They're power hungry, deceiving and they all have horrible management skills. They're trying to manage individuals who are pursuing a college degrees while at the same time some of these "managers" had a hard time graduating from high school.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more to attract better individuals.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits , good support structure and corporate culture. Lots of perks to employment with EdR. Excellent training and on-boarding process.

    Cons

    Upward mobility for hardworking employees, who are often overlooked. When hire they tell you the are big a promoting from within, but often the choices aren't based skills. If your regional manager doesn't like or support you, the chances of promotions are very limited.

    Advice to Management

    More oversight over regional managers. Offer more promotions to property level staff members who work extremely hard and seek.

    Pros

    I enjoyed being a CA for the Retreat. It was nice to be able to walk to work. The schedule always works around your class schedule. It is a great college-student job.

    Cons

    Management had a high turnover rate and sometimes was very unorganized. There is a "bonus" set up for signing leases but management never explained well enough in my opinion for the CA's to work hard for the reward.
