    Pros

    They will hire and promote you even without a college degree if you are willing to put in the time. It's not a demanding job and the benefits are great.

    Cons

    Getting promoted is not a guarantee. The promotions can be somewhat political. Commission is based on demand so you won't make as much in the slow seasons.

    Pros

    Great culture. Awesome people to work with. Everyone wants to see everyone succeed and is always helping others to do so.

    Cons

    Very little support from upper management. Takes forever to get emails responded to, sometimes if at all. Area directors are supposed to visit sites weekly, yet I only see mine once every 4 to 6 months. Wouldn't be so bad if they didn't ignore email communications on top of that. Usually the company is really great about putting their people first, however we are currently facing life threatening temperatures and officials are advising everywhere that no one go outside or commute unless its a dire emergency. Businesses everywhere are closing due to the weather conditions. Corporate office closed, but is forcing the sites to stay open and put their lives at risk., despite all the warnings.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved. Don't just leave your sites to figure everything out by themselves. Also, don't be so concerned about making money, that you put your employees in unnecessary danger. Officials give warnings for a reason. I hope no one loses their life freezing to death while trying to please Village Green.

    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!!!
