    I have been working at Preferred Apartment Communities full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary, great places to work, and great clothes to wear. You can make great money on a lease-up.

    Cons

    All clothes must be black and white! Hard to get a promotion into corporate most jobs are giving to friends and young college kids. ( Friends of the owner kids) Better training ( grace hill sucks), benefits or just Ok, could be better .

    Advice to Management

    Hire and promote the good jobs to everyone. Let's wear more than black and white. Due more team building/training as a group vs using just Grace Hill. Employee family day ( we have kids)

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Preferred Apartment Communities full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nothing. There is absolutely nothing pro about this company.

    Cons

    There is constant contact with Corporate but nothing gets resolved. They do not listen to employees concerns especially in regards to abusive property managers. Handle resident complaints poorly such as ignoring or evicting residents Ignore complaints of aggressive behavior from managers

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the owner is start paying closer attention to your management teams. They are giving you a horrific name.

    Advice to Management

    When your employees talk about the management issues occurring in Preferred Capital Securities, it is because they care and want change. It is when they stop talking that you lose instrumental employees.
