    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. There are other companies out there that really do believe in their mission statements.

    Cons

    Residents who can't get their maintenance concerns taken care of for months at a time due to "spending Freezes". Exterior lighting left without being repaired mainly due to the cost of high pressure sodium light bulbs. One resident had a broken window for 6 months due to refusal to spend the money on a replacement. Managers not allowed to turn units completely until they were leased, due to spending restrictions, but they still had their feet held to the fire over occupancy issues.

    Advice to Management

    Please sell the company back to the Colsons.

    Endless conference calls .. Our cheerleadrs negativity ... WE NEED POSITIVE Feedback ,,, not ALL beat'm up ! We all work extremly hard and actually enjoy the SALES side and showing off our Communities..! We are all mature ADULTS not teenagers who need to be scolded!

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to the Community Level Management.... Bring your locations into the year 2013 or OUR competion will swollow us.... Our buildings are breaking down ! Residents we have deserve the BEST for the Lifestyle they are paying all of us for.... if you update they will pay the increases in rent ! And that will pay for the improvements .... Update ALL snack bars .. entties and visual areas !
