Cascade Management Inc. is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

"I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to join the Cascade Management team full time over 8 years ago. Even with all the growth over the years, Cascade has been able to retain its identity as a people- and family-oriented company.” - Glenn Ransom, IT Specialist

"I have a quote in my office that came from a brainstorm session a while back between myself and my supervisor that says 'Cascade is committed to growing and supporting employees. Everyone matters.' It is directly tied to our current mission statement 'Service First.' We are in service to our clients, and tenants, of course, but we are also in service to our employees every day, at corporate and in the field. As we grow and develop, these two statements often times serve as a filter for decisions leadership makes and how we do business. I appreciate working for a company that holds itself to the standard of doing the right thing." - Marietta Van Goor, Training and Development Manager

"When I started at Cascade Management nearly 17 years ago, I was given the opportunity to grow with a company that inspired me to be a leader in the accounting department. Over the years I have been able to utilize my skillset within a company that respects and values my contributions.” - Denise Doty, Accounts Payable Supervisor

“I have been encouraged to not only reach my potential, but to exceed it. I have been allowed to utilize my strengths and to recognize shortcomings and make improvements beneficial to myself, my team, and the company.” - Paul Jordan, Administrator of Maintenance Services

    I have been working at Cascade Management part-time (Less than a year)


    Even as early as during my resume submission, Cascade contacted me and worked with my schedule to interview. During the recruiting process, I felt important and their staff was constantly in contact with me. During the training period, as a new employee I already felt valued and the training and human resources staff were helpful every step of the way. Since I have been at my position, everyone has been so helpful with guidance, training, and assistance that it was obvious that they wanted to help me be successful and happy in my new position. Management, compliance, and accounting go out of their way to help me anytime I have a question. There is informative, ongoing training. I feel listened to and I continue to feel valued. Even though I work onsite separate from the corporate office, I still always feel like part of the team.


    After almost a year with this company, I don't have any complaints because I feel like everyone does the best they can to accommodate the needs of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Feeling valued and listened to makes all the difference in the world!

    Site Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cascade Management (Portland, OR).


    I received an email offering me a job interview. I arrived at the interview, chilled my heels for a bit in the waiting room and then met with a hiring manager in the conference room. The manager was pretty easy to talk and joke with.

    Then I was given a math test, finished that and was on my way.

    The next day I was offered the position. The drug test results took about 2 weeks and then I started. Some policies that were agreed upon during this interview (Transfer) did change within weeks which was pretty disgruntling.

    Interview Questions

    • Just a normal discussion about experience, which isn't entirely required.   1 Answer


    I didn't attempt to negotiate. I was given a written offer and I accepted it.
