    I have been working at Weidner Apartment Homes full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    One big family here at Weidner, the company offers a 30% discount on rent which is better than the industry average. Also the Health care is really good in my opinion, and the company gives you all the tools to be successful. The thing I love the most about Weidner, is they give you the ability to make decisions on a day to day when helping your residents. They have a very good internship program for students still in...

    Cons

    In my honest opinion, you have bad days and you have good days. And I have had my share of both during my time at Weidner. But at the end of the day I know I work for a company that appreciates my work and what I bring to the table. They genuinely care about my success and my family.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to empower your employees like you do. It goes a long way.

    I worked at Weidner Apartment Homes full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The company culture attracts some really excellent people! If you apply yourself you can learn a lot from some great people.

    Cons

    Lethargic wage growth and gross underpaying makes it almost impossible to keep said excellent people. Kirkland and regional leadership needs to take a serious look at their employees pay and understand they pay well below industry standards while expecting so much more.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better. If cuts are needed then make the tough decisions to let underperforming people go so you can afford to give something to the top performers to keep them around. Also, properties with less than 50-60 units absolutely do not need a CD. Put a leasing specialist at properties like that and assign it to a strong CD and maintenance supervisor and pay the CD and maintenance supervisor a little more....

    Pros

    Good benefits, great coworkers, love how easy it is to have access if we have any problems with yardi or anything like that. Room for growth.

    Cons

    . You don’t make as much money as other property management companies. The audits get more and more ridiculous every year. Not very family oriented no paid maternity leave, trying to take time off can be a complete nightmare since your regional has to approve it. Wish we could have Christmas Eve off for those who have to travel.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees who work so hard for you.

      Pros

      Customer service oriented and exceptional continuous training

      Not all that flexible with scheduling--only because residents depend on us.

      Great management The company that cares about its employees Regional management is great High Paced

      Cons

      Always short handed high turn over On-call compensation is crappy Office staff will throw you under the bus to please residents Office staff does not communicate well

      Advice to Management

      On call rotations need to be compensated better you are pretty much prohibited from leaving to far or even going out to eat without the risk of being called. 10 dollars a day is not nearly enough for this risk
