Andre Washington one of our leasing consultants at Camden Lago Vista and before joining the team as an employee was a resident at Camden Town Square. Here is what he had to say about his great experience working for Camden so far!
When did you know Camden was a good fit for you?
I realized Camden was it for me my first day walking into Camden Town Square. I was a Customer, and as soon as I walked up to the front door I heard today's music playing in the background, as I opened the door a very refreshing scent lingered (Now I know that Camden has its own scent that’s named Camden, just a fun fact.), I was then greeted by a very welcoming face. I instantly felt like home.
What has made Camden different compared to your previous employers/employment?
Camden has managed to be completely different than my previous employer. With Camden, from day one, I instantly felt like family. Everyone was SO welcoming. I was constantly greeted with hugs and a big smile. I never felt so appreciated when it came to my job until I started working for Camden.
What is your favorite part of your day at work?
Touring with our customers. I come in to contact with so many different people from all over the world. There is so much to talk about and learn about from each customer I tour. You get to know them and then it’s kind of like a game to find the best floor plan that will fit them and their lifestyle.
What is your favorite memory so far with your team?
When we went to Drive Shack in Lake Nona. We decided that we needed some fun outside of work so when we clocked out at the end of the work day and we went over to Drive Shack! We had a nice dinner and had some friendly competition golfing. Granted I didn’t win BUT I was number 2!
What is your favorite memory so far with your residents?
Our resident appreciation day. Working for Camden you’re able to express yourself and be creative. So for our resident appreciate day we did a Walking Taco Bar. How it works is you get a bag of Doritos, you crush them up, open the bag, add ground beef or turkey, lettuce, tomato, beans, and sour cream, shake it up, and enjoy. We then had a section where we had yummy cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and sprinkles. It was so much fun seeing our residents interact with each other and enjoying themselves.
What advice would you give to someone applying to work for Camden?
Make sure to be yourself! In order for you to enjoy your job, you have to feel comfortable in your workplace.
Why should people want to work at Camden?
Camden is a fantastic company to work for. Don’t pass up the opportunity to work for a company that is on the Fortune 100 best companies to work for. You will be able to learn so much and be able to move in so many directions within the company.
