Thanks to Charles E. Smith (or, more correctly, Archstone Smith), I had sewage fill my kitchen last night. No, they wouldn't authorize a hotel because, well, my bedroom wasn't filled with sewage. So we slept here. Nobody's told us that there has been more than one class action suit against this company, even if you exclude the disabilities act suits. Turns out, it's unhealthy to live in buildings that are perpetually filled with sewage and moisture. People are having serious health problems due to mold and the general disrepair of the buildings.
At least CES/ASN is doing the right thing and suing their contractors rather than, you know, fixing the fucking buildings.
You might think that with eighty thousand apartments, and less than five percent vacancy, that even something seemingly inconsistent like a mold problem or a policy on solvents can quickly affect thousands of residents. If only one percent of their apartments are affected, that's over a thousand people.
Yet if we look at their ads, we see requirements as stringent as
Three years' experience might seem like a lot, except that these people are running a building of thousands of people, and that the original ads require "no experience necessary." So after you get into the position, with no experience (and twenty five years old!), three years later, you are managing a building of hundreds of people, even thousands. You're given eminent domain over the health of the people, and you have a vested interest in doing that which saves ASN/CES money at the expense of said people.
Sounds like a recipe for success.
