    I have been working at Village Green full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The insurance is really good, and the residents make the job worth going to. I have nothing positive to say about management- I have no idea how any owner would hire this company!

    Cons

    Hands down the worst company to work for. Their “training” is not helpful at all if you work at a small property. There is no encouragement when you do something well, but they are very quick to reprimand if you mess something up— which is typically due to poor management/ guidance!!!

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone was a good sales consultant and complete classes does not make them management qualified. As much as I can appreciate promoting from within, I have encountered more unqualified managers in my year + with this company than the past 30 years work experience combined. A person that does not like people... should not manage people. Unfortunately you host the most miserable human as an area director, which has run off SO many great people. They seem more caught up in a popularity contest then actually caring about each other.

    I worked at Village Green part-time

    Pros

    I had an horrible experience no pros!

    Cons

    This management company is disorganized and unethical. I left after working there for a month. I wasn't given a desk nor a computer and the property manager quit in my second week. This I found out from an email saying her position was open. VG remained grossly understaffed. I also was never paid commission on three leases that I signed. No training! Very unsafe environment, tenants complained of bikes being stolen and cars being broken into. They are not a reputable management company!

    Advice to Management

    You need to care more about your employees!!!

    I worked at Village Green full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -If you know the right people, you will move up quickly

    Cons

    -If you are not part of the popularity circle, you will get passed by even if you deserve better
    -HORRIBLE work life balance. If you have kids FORGET IT

    Advice to Management

    Actually pay attention to the ones who are putting their all into their work. Compliment the ones who are first to come in and last to leave and always going the extra mile.

    I have been working at Village Green full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Village Green has been solid since I started 2 years ago. From the time you start, there is always someone to help with everything from filing to sales. Every new hire is assigned a mentor who overlooks their development and makes sure they have the tools and resources necessary for a smooth and efficient on-boarding process. Moreover, they have a hire from within mentality, which means, if you're motivated, will move up quickly. In 2 short years I was able to receive a promotion and essentially double my starting salary. I am thankful for the opportunities I've been given and am excited to continue with my growth in this ever-growing company!

    Cons

    Staffing is always an issue. I highly recommend they increase the starting hourly pay for new associates in order to be more competitive in the hiring process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! It's an amazing
