I’m really tired of the resident’s verbal abuse, not being appreciated by the higher ups, the low pay for all the work we do etc? I love this industry, but sometimes I think to myself, there’s gotta be a less stressful job out there...

Get your re al estate license and work for an owner directly. It’s so much better than dealing with corporate BS

I’ve been doing this 40 years now and I found a family owned company who appreciates us like family... choose wisely next time and find happiness.. we don’t allow resident abuse that’s an immediate 10

Every job has its stressors. I do this despite the stress because I see personal value in helping provide quality homes to people. It's not the marketing, not the shiny amenities, but the fact that I might just be the only smile they see today.
It's not RoI or occupancy percentage, it's the fact that I am building community. Even when they're yelling, it's *my* people.
Hell, I just told one of my coworkers today that the upset resident wasn't our problem; we are their solution.

Dear One, there is never a reason to endure verbal abuse from anyone , EVER. I am a retired training VP and always told our teams this was totally unacceptable . If your supervisor feels you must put up with this you must find a company that respects you and will back you up. There are plenty out there as I was blessed to be with those who did exactly that . My best to you ! It really is a wonderful industry.

Pat Johnson Wiley Thank you, Pat. Just the other day I had a resident become aggressive and violent. He snatched the pen out of my hand and slammed it on my desk breaking it. Then he started approaching me and instead of intervening, my manager ran out of the office and disappeared! That made him even more upset because he then wanted to speak with her and she was no where to be found! I had to calm him down and said that I would have her call him, but he stormed out of the office looking for her. A few minutes later she walked in like nothing. I asked her why she would leave me there in such a situation and her response was “ I just didn’t want to get in the middle of that” Wow! Just WOW!!

Pat Johnson Wiley I always say safety first. People can be crazy. Why stay and try to talk him down? Get somewhere safe and call the police! I used to think I could fix everything until my maintenance guy had a gun put to his head. We changed the way we do things the next day!

Most people just need a hug. Your angry residents are likely feeling the same way that you are about their lives, jobs, etc. Everyone has a bad day. And we are all in control of our feelings. It’s only as stressful as you let it be.

Decide if you are worth more than that. Once you decide that them simply start making choices that support that decision.

This job will kill u if u let it. My suggestion, Find a outlet. Take up a new hobby to get your mind off the nonesense. I started taking up photography and it gave me a great outlet and I feel much better about work every since.
