Potential, but management could use some work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OH20 March 2017
the company is great. My work area was good and my co workers were super nice. However as a student I felt over worked and ignored. The job was a part time job, but they had work way over 20 hours a week and every single weekend. At my particular property I was working, because it was new there were alot of kinks in the way everything was run. I feel like the time I was working there I was there during the worst times, which is why I can't rate the company any higher.
Pros
Nice staff, great residents.
Cons
Over worked.

Community Assistant is the perfect job for a college student!
Leasing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Boulder, CO2 March 2017
I have loved working for American Campus Communities. I have learned a lot from my management and peers as well. This is by far the best place I have worked. I really like the fact that my work place is right down stairs and that I get benefits on my rental pay. This place is awesome!
Pros
Discounted rent, free food, and well paid
Cons
Have to move school schedule around to work here.

Upper management puts money over safety.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TX15 March 2017
There are countless OSHA violations on any given day, the Maintenance Supervisor is extremely fair. However the Property Manager is money hungry for a bonus, dismissing any other problem. She is bias against white men, prefers to only hire black women, and is incredibly flagrant about it. Worst part is corporate doesn't care.
Pros
Golf Carts
Cons
5 Month vacation blackout dates

Da
Desk Assistant (Former Employee) –  Richardson, TX11 February 2017
As a desk assistant you are responsible for being the primary person of contact during the graveyard hours. The hours on a normal week are 10:00 PM - 3:30 AM or 3:30 AM - 9:00 AM. It is a requirement to be a currently enrolled University student in order to be hired.
As far as compensation goes the job pays $8.00 per hour with the opportunity of employer 401k matching after being employed for 12-months.
Current ACC hiring practices dictate that 8 DAs be hired for every building. That means that the Average DA will only have 11-12 hours each per week.
As a DA you will get to work more whenever there is a holiday as full time staff members will get off, meaning that every Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, etc. you will be required to work.
Pros
Watch movies or Browse the internet during shift; Free Color Printing
Cons
No raises in pay; Too few hours due to overhiring

Not good
Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Staten Island, NY11 December 2016
This particular dorm at this campus has unqualified individuals working in the office. The needs of the students in the dorms aren't taken very serious despite the enormous amount of money that is paid for them to reside there. Rules and regulations are good, but dorming is supposed to be a great experience for college students and this place takes all the fun out of it for them.
Unfortunately there are a lot of minorities that reside here and the office staff cannot really identify with anything about some of them, especially the neighborhoods where they lived, living environments (how these kids live and what occurs in the home, and educational facilities attended prior to attending college!11.50

Sad
Former Service Desk Associate (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VA14 December 2016
Its an easy repetitive job. The service desk associate is disrespected and ignored daily. The pay is not worth the aggravation. There is no room for growth and no pay raise raises . Upper management is retired navy whom have no respect for women or minorities. They will pay for classes geared towards the company but there's no promotions so what's the point.
Pros
Paid leave and sick days
Cons
Pay, no growth, no team effort lots of favortism

COMMUNITY ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TX15 February 2017
They had excellent training and opportunities to grow within the company after college. Pay wasn't good and the work environment varied depending on the time of the year and who they had in office at that point in time. They were consistent on when they wanted across the company and their values were consistent.

American Campus is a great company to work for.

Property Accountant (Former Employee) –  Austin, TX26 October 2016
Your personal business is not yours or private if you accept a position at this corporation. The best way to enter this coveted corporate office is to start your career as a bookkeeper at a property. That is the only way your co-workers will accept you into the fold.
