An ideal job; in most cases provides good benefits including housing & flexible work schedule. Ideal for a married couple nearing or at retirement. It's a good job if you're a 'people person' and detail oriented.

Certain times of the year are more stressful: annual spring maintenance or special projects and winter (depending on the snowfall amounts). Each building and/or HOA is different and has its own peculiar plus and minuses. But over all it was a good job.

Maintenance Manager (Current Employee) - Saint Louis Park, MN
This organization is a great place to work. Lots of opportunity to excel and a supportive management staff. I feel this company has the market cornered, in a good way. They set the bar for condo & town home association management.
Pros
Didn't feel micro managed
