I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (Less than a year)
The benefits are great and you get great incentives for working hard
The hours are demanding, as are the managers when you don’t hit your goals since it is a sales position

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Connor Group (Denver, CO (US)).
The recruiter was so nice and very informative. She explained how the process would go and I was very interested after seeing their 4.8 rating on glassdoor (unheard of in today’s climate). I hate a great conversation with her and moved on to a very strange phone interview which was literally a personality assessment on the phone. I passed that and moved onto a video conference with the next manager, she asked me a few questions and it was very comfortable and easy as I’m currently in sales/services and not afraid to deal with a difficult customer. I was then moved on the a video conference with the regional manager. (Strange the regional manager isn’t close enough to meet in person but whatever). Our connection was laggy and I could barely hear him. He asked me the exact same questions as the interview before while chewing on his pen and looking away from the camera. This was a red flag for me but I figured hey, there’s weird managers everywhere. I was then scheduled for a day in the field. At first it was scheduled at a property by my home. Then was moved to a property 40 minutes away. Prior to this I dug deeper into their reviews and realized they pay employees (or so a few reviews state) to write positive glassdoor reviews, this was a HUGE red flag but I thought maybe a few employees couldn’t succeed and were disgruntled so I decided to drive the 40 minutes to the property. I spoke with the regional trainer and property manager in one of the most disorganized offices I’ve ever entered for a max of 10 minutes and then was paired with a leasing agent for the rest of the day. He showed me what he did daily and explained a few unethical practices to me. (Including lying to future tenants about sq footage). He also told me his commission and it was embarrassingly low. The recruiter told me I had the potential to make 8k a year in commission, that’s impossible based on their payout. After that the regional trainer asked me 2 questions and then walked away. The next day (appreciate the speedy follow up) I received an email saying they’re going with another candidate. That’s great, because I’d have to be stupid to leave my current situation for a job like this. Oh, they also told me all about the growth opportunities but not one person in a management position that I came into contact with started at a lower level, all were hired from outside. In my final conversation with the regional trainer I told her it seemed like a job I’d succeed in but seeing not one person in a leadership position being promoted from below rubbed me wrong. She tried to make me feel stupid and explain it’s a new market. Can’t be that new when 2/3 people I interviewed with aren’t even there, and neither of them were promoted within the company both came from the outside. I’m not entirely happy in my current company but I know they’d pay to relocate personal to a new market before hiring someone from the outside and that’s something that keeps me with them. This company seems really bogus and I’m glad I got to see first hand what they’re really about. There’s absolutely 0 integrity from what I saw. The apartments they’re leasing are gorgeous but also extremely small and out dated. I live in a bigger apartment in the city and pay 500 less a month than what they’re asking for a smaller less luxurious apartment in the middle of nowhere. Also, if you want to advertise luxury please invest in stainless steal appliances. Lastly, their employee who I shadowed (who was phenomenal) told me they’re in the investment business and buy and sell property. So what happens when the property I’m at gets sold? I move to a new one, and what if that new one is 2 hours away from me? Guess I’m out of a job. Sounds like that’s why their turnover rate is so high. Read their reviews and think twice before taking this job. The grocery store pays more. By a long shot. Thanks for wasting so much of my time and goodluck lying to people about nonexistent opportunity !
