The Connor Group – Why Work For Us?

Members of The Connor Group team are not of the apartment industry. They’re talented, driven people who just happen to work in the apartment industry.

Our associates come from an array of backgrounds. We employ former coaches and entrepreneurs, former editors and retail managers — just to name a few. Though their backgrounds vary greatly, they all share a few common traits.

They are high achievers with strong track records of success. They are dynamic leaders and come-hell-or-highwater producers.  They are accountable for themselves and others. What they are not, are industry insiders. And that is by design.

We do not hire people who have worked in the industry before. Our associates don’t know the industry standards. They have no knowledge about what has been deemed impossible by others in the business. We like that. Because we don’t deal in industry standards, or impossibilities for that matter. What we do — as recruiters, trainers and leaders — is find the best and brightest individuals and teach them The Connor Group way of doing things.

We take proven people and place them into our proven systems.

The Connor Group owns and operates approximately 17,000 high-quality apartment units in six markets: Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Dallas, Atlanta, Raleigh. Since being founded in 1991, we have grown from $0 to more than $1.3 billion in assets.

Our Beliefs:
  • Be the best not the biggest
  • We’re committed to smart growth
  • Innovation & continuous improvement equal success
  • We invest in associates through training & benefits


At The Connor Group, we’ve developed a distinctively strong culture rooted in training, innovation, hard work and accountability.

People — and how they fit into our culture — always have been the key to our success. No person is irreplaceable, but every person is important.  Everyone holds the rope; those who pull hardest are rewarded handsomely. The Connor Group started with three partners. It has grown to 21. That group includes service technicians, administrative assistants and top executives alike. We’ve never had a glass ceiling, so our associates have a sky’s-the-limit attitude.

Our people pride themselves on constant evaluation and improvement, but certain concepts are non-negotiable — accountability, integrity and an uncompromising commitment to excellence. Those aren’t just catchphrases or words on a page. They are, more accurately, who we are.

We believe people are the No. 1 key to success and we treat our people accordingly.

Connor Group associates, no matter their starting position, have arealopportunity for advancement and a chance to become an equity partner in the firm. We offer our world-class training programs aimed at acclimating new hires and advancing proven performers. We believe reward and recognition are keys to job satisfaction and enjoyment. That’s why we host two awards ceremonies every year in every market and reward associates in other creative ways throughout the year. We have outstanding compensation and bonus plans, as well as tremendous health benefits and 401(k) options.

As a company, we invest in our future by investing in our associates.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Connor Group (Austin, TX).


    Phone screening, 3 video conference interview. They don't tell you that you will be on a video interview. Its fine once you expect it. The process went really quickly. If you make it far enough you do a day in the life of whatever position you apply for.
