  • Overview

    To call you handy would be an understatement. Our Make Ready Managers oversee all make ready activities, including initial and ongoing maintenance, turns and renovations. You know how to track and analyze resident satisfaction, cycle times, adherence to budget and associate and vendor performance. Safety is your number one priority as you ensure all workplace safety standards are upheld and properties are compliant.

    You’re a self-starter who works well independently, but you’re also able to lead a team of associates and vendors within your service area. You communicate clearly, and manage appropriate staffing to minimize downtime and maximize rental revenue while controlling costs. You also keep clean records of maintenance schedules and work performed.

    As a team leader, you provide ongoing training and regular feedback to ensure your direct reports have the tools they need to succeed. You set goals, build succession plans and complete annual reviews. Most of all, you enjoy knowing that your work creates value for our company and our customers.

    • 5 years or more years of experience as a senior superintendent, regional maintenance supervisor or production home customer service manager; regional or director level experience preferred
