    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

    Nice work environment, nice company to work for, decent benefits, fun atmosphere

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Management is flexible and understanding when certain life events pop up
    Decent Pay
    Benefits
    If you have a out going Regional you will have a good time when he/she visits the property.
    Growth can be rapid in this company.

    Cons

    The leasing bonus is only $10 until you hit 86% pre-leased. Any online leases go straight to the LMM. If you are at a property that has tons of online leasing traffic over walk-in's and such, this can be frustrating to see.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been great. They care about the CA's and assistant managers. Keep rocking.

    Pros

    EdR tries to be a very employee oriented company. Collaboration between the home office and individual properties is very strong. They like to promote from within.

    Cons

    Problems employees have with supervisors are not taken very seriously. One on one training for new or newly promoted employees is lacking. It takes months to receive proper training calls or personal training at home office, if you get any at all.

    Advice to Management

    Take employee issues more seriously, and make sure all employees receive thorough training. Continue to grow the day to day relationship between home office and employees on the property level.

    Pros

    They promote from within and your support network is strong. You can trust that if you make a mistake they will be there to help you and they are aware of the tough markets and do not punish you for what is out of your control but also do not abandon the property.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of work so the work life balance can get out of hand if you aren't careful. Corporate has a few support teams that like to send out last minute work and expects that you get it done even if it is a weekend.

    Advice to Management

    I would say to watch the amount of last minute, unplanned work you send down the ladder as we are the ones dealing with the customers first hand and also doing the behind the scenes work with families.

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

    Pros

    Rent discounts were a major bonus.

    Cons

    Minimum wage for college students and the hours were crazy. There's generally a quick employee turn around, and sometimes management can be really bureaucratic and disorganized.

    Pros

    I've liked EDR, good company to get a start with, lots of room for growth. The upper level management seem level headed and not disconnected from the workers.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little higher to start with, and I'm expected to carry a phone 24/7 which I'm not paid for.

    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.
