    I worked at Gables Residential full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Gables provides an excellent work environment, great training and benefits. The Regional Managers are among the best in the industry. They have many opportunities for advancement. They truly live up to their motto "Taking Care of The Way People Live!" They take care of their employees. Their CEO, Sue Ansel, is personable and really cares about the employees.

    Cons

    Not any to mention. I was with Gables for eight years and have nothing negative to say about my time with them. They're the best in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your tenured employees more than new hires. Their experience and knowledge of Gables should be valued.

    I have been working at Gables Residential full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited training, advancement opportunities, continuous support and mentoring, annual community service day, and the ability to balance work and personal life. I truly feel like Gables cares about my growth and advancement as a person. I am more than just my employee number. I love that there is lots of opportunity for career advancement and that they provide all the tools necessary for success. They care about their residents, it not just a tag line. But they also care very much about their employees.

    Cons

    I don't think there are any cons worth mentioning. Gables has a great team of people that use the feedback from residents and associates to make working for Gables and living at a Gables community even better.

    I have been working at Gables Residential full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself is fairly easy to get the hang of if you are decent with details (I'm not, but I got the hang of it after two or three months). There are a lot of details to it, but once you've been in the position for 3 - 6 months you get the rhythm of it and don't have to ask for help as often.

    The job is enjoyable, basically being the customer service experience for on site residents and helping bring in new traffic to lease apartments. I started in the summer, so it was busier than it is now, but I would lease around 6-10 apartments per month at $75/lease.

    Cons

    There's a lot of gossiping and trash-talking in the workplace, but honestly I think that's just my specific apartment community and not a reflection of the company as a whole necessarily. You'll have to work weekends pretty regularly, but you'll get weekdays off the compensate, so you'll still be getting time off.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, I think they're doing a pretty good job as is. There's only so much you can do about workplace gossip except discourage it (which they do) and not actively participate (which they don't). Management is encouraging, helping, and approachable.

    I worked at Gables Residential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company that strive on training new and current employees in order to grow. Beautiful properties. Luckily they raised commission on leases.

    Cons

    Low pay, especially for new hires. It's hard to get a great hourly wage if you started as a non-experienced employee, even with yearly raises.

    I have been working at Gables Residential (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Our company motto is "Taking Care of the Way People Live", referring to the tenants at our luxury apartment communities, but I truly believe this goes for the way Gables treat their employees as well. I have a perfect work/life balance and the benefits are amazing. It's such a happy, personal, and welcoming environment. I've truly never been so happy in a career.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
