Alliance Residential named “Top Companies to Work For”

Alliance Residential, the largest multifamily developer and seventh largest multifamily manager in the nation, has been named one of CareerBuilder’s Top Companies to Work for in Arizona by Republic Media (The Arizona Republic, azcentral.com, La Voz) and CareerBuilder. This is Alliance’s second year on the annual listing.

Companies are evaluated and selected based on a combination of overall satisfaction scores from an Employee Engagement Survey and evaluation from an Employer Questionnaire covering topics related to HR programs, benefits and workplace culture.

“Alliance is one of the few management companies with a corporate support team dedicated to talent acquisition,” said Greta Schneider, Alliance’s vice president of talent. “Our ability to attract and retain top talent directly contributes to the company’s consistent growth, profitability and industry-leading initiatives.”

Alliance offers many unique programs for associates. One area of focus is professional development, and opportunities for associates include a partnership with the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREMÒ) to offer two of the industry’s premier real estate management credentials to Alliance associates through our learning management platform, Alliance University. Meanwhile, Alliance InStyle provides associates with stylish career apparel options from brand-name retailers and is one of the most appreciated perks among our team members. Additional benefits include rental discounts and sales contests with monetary prizes.

“We are honored to be among the companies recognized in this prestigious program,” added Schneider. “This award reflects the hard work and dedication of Alliance associates who make our business a top company to work for.”

Top Five Superbowl Commercials of 2011


Volkswagen:  “Use the FORCE, young car owner”

A wildly popular commercial, Volkswagen’s Darth Vader was a huge success.  It was funny, well made and had iconic references to Star Wars — what more could you ask for?


Eminem & Chrysler:  “Detroit’s two biggest names”

It starts with an intro of “Lose Yourself” from his hit movie 8 Mile; it’s simplistic, serious view of the Detroit life for which Eminem has become famous gave the viewer a chilling, honest feeling.  A perfect example of how being simple can be most effective.


Doritos:  “Finger lickin’ good!”

The past two Superbowls, Doritos has had hit or miss commercials as it attempts to implant itself as an NFL staple.  This one, in particular, was arguably the best they’ve created.  Funny and weird makes for an interesting take — like a Jim Carey film.


Bridgestone: “REPLY ALL”

Bridgestone has been fairly quiet in the Superbowl commercial world, but this year they stepped it up.  An interesting, unrelated way to present car tires, it’s an office nightmare!  “REPLY ALL” can only lead to trouble.


CareerBuilder.com:  “Monkeys!”

Careerbuilder.com delivered a laugh with an unusual take on employee relations in the parking lot — using monkeys.  With success in the past, Careerbuilder delivers another laugh, and let’s be honest…nothing’s funnier than monkeys in suits!
