Thank you Florida team for exhibiting such generosity!

I have been working at Hometown America full-time (More than a year)
I must say that after having had a success career in multi-family housing, I had no clue whatsoever that I would literally fall in love with the manufacturer home industry. Since I’ve been employed by Hometown America, the company has been extremely supportive (from Executive Management to Regional Property Management and their assistants) and have shown that they really invest in their hardworking and devoted employees. They allow their Community Managers the opportunity to actually manage and take charge of their assets without micromanaging. As with any seasoned and loyal Community Manager, very seldom do you find this with other management companies but with Hometown America you are in charge of your communities and the company definitely rewards their employees for their dedication and hard work. I fit in with this organization and I’m so glad that I’ve been welcomed into the Hometown America family.
Because the company is growing and they are recruiting professionals with multi-family experience and bringing on board employees who have worked for larger management companies, I think that the company may want to consider developing and implementing company wide procedural manuals that would walk all of their employees through steps on how to effectively perform functions pertaining to each individual role. In doing so, this allows employees to have tools and resources available to make them more efficient and comfortable with there roles with the company which in returns creates more productivity and profits for the organization.
I’m so happy to see the growth of this company and how we are trending into becoming the most sought after and desired manufacturer home company to work for. In saying so, I think that it is time to update our company website. We are standing out more and are attracting the right people into our organization. With a fresh and trendy website, it would put our organization on the map more as it relates to gaining more credibility and targeting a much wider audience which keeps customers and team members more informed.
Advice to Management
Please don’t ever stop investing in your employees. I believe that the success and reputation of this company has been built around it along with operational excellence and respect.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hometown America (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.
My interview process included, in order: an HR interview over the phone followed by a Manager interview on the phone and then in person, Caliper personality evaluation, CEO phone interview--comprehensive but worth it.
