    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.

    I have been working at EdR Collegiate Housing full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Management stopped in our office once in awhile and they were very friendly. It was a great place to work.. very welcoming.

    It was cold in the winter and I had to be outside marketing.

    I worked at EdR Collegiate Housing part-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    The pay is nice when you are a student and you get to live at a much higher discounted price. It depends on your manager. Mine was crap so I did not like it at all.

    Cons

    It is really annoying to be an R.A. at some of the properties. They make it so that you have to follow really annoying training sessions and interact with residents.

    Advice to Management

    PAy your managers above a bad salary so you can actually hire quality that is not completely useless or annoying. Helps with turnover which was atrocious during my time there.

    Pros

    flexible schedule, rent discounted to a reasonable amount, fun to work with your peers, lets you learn about the leading process

    Cons

    the schedule is set by an older peer... very based on favoritism, they say you need to work 15 hrs/week but it's more like 20-25 some weeks, EDR itself is very inflexible if you have a conflict and need to work less hours because you're a student

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with your hours, give less training (it's a waste of time at some point), and try to have your offices by less catty. Mine felt like a middle school.
