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

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

Excellent Company, Mean Co-Workers
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.

Great student housing company to work for especially as a college student. My schedule is pretty flexible compared to most and has been accommodating. Moving up in the company is much easier if you are willing to relocate.

Very friendly job that allows me to interact with residents.
Community Assistant (Current Employee) –  Prairie View, TX2 May 2016
A typical day being a community assistant involves answering phone calls, dealing with maintenance issues and requests, taking payments, receiving leases, conducting wellness checks, and anything else needed by my resident director. I have learned how to multi-task at the front desk. Our management is great and very friendly. The hardest part of the job is trying to manage my job and stay on top of my school work. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the residents and maintaining a fun community.
Pros
Interacting with residents, helping solve problems
Cons
Sometimes not having time to finish my school work.

Good part time job
Community Assistant (Current Employee) –  Syracuse, NY2 May 2016
I believe this is a great part time job, but would leave it at that. There is very little balance or time for a personal life and a bit of drama in the office.
