    I have been working at Hometown America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture, leadership and collaboration are phenomenal. I receive support and know that I have a group of people willing to work with me to take care of our residents and community. I know that my contributions are appreciated. It’s been a great experience.

    Cons

    We are spread out so it can be difficult to network with colleagues. I would like more opportunities to get together with others in the region or even nationally.

    I have been working at Hometown America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    I've been working here for a year now and everyone has been a pleasure to work with. HTA is a great company to work for !

    Cons

    The only downside that i can say are the long hours at times. It would be nice to leave work early on Fridays.

    Advice to Management

    The Management team has been nothing but positive and great! They all work very hard and deserve to leave on Fridays early as well :)

    Pros

    Whether you are looking at the Operations team or the Sales Department or the Maintenance staff...this organization is filled with hard working, passionate and caring people. The company is filled with a "can-do" and "let's make things better" attitude and it seems like everyone works together to accomplish the mission--which is to improve the lives of both it's employees and residents.

    Cons

    Compared to other places I have worked, Hometown just does not have any "cons" worth mentioning--seriously!

    Advice to Management

    Keep protecting your company culture with new hires.

    Pros

    Great regional and corporate leadership. They listen to feedback and are open to community management's ideas. They are always looking for ways to improve and they do their best to help us take care of our residents.

    Cons

    I really do not have any cons that have prevented me from being able to do my job effectively. Sometimes it can be hard to get away from your work when you live on-site but that's just part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have a total company meeting instead of just by region so we could meet managers in other areas and more of the corporate team.

    Pros

    You have the resources and support to do your job and management is open to feedback and suggestions. Inclusive environment. Management cares about the employees and strives to do the right thing with people in mind (not just the bottom line) when making decisions.

    Cons

    It would be nice to see a little more communication from management on company strategy, goals and progress. They share this at meetings with managers but I would like to see something that can be shared with all employees more easily.

    I have been working at Hometown America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with some great people who take pride in the properties that they work at; upper management believes that helping employees with needed time off for family is very important; ability to move to other properties, whether in the same state or different state; people at corporate are eager to help us out at the property level.

    Cons

    Feel that you can't always resolve issues with people you work with who are either at the same level or upper level with the help of HR. Better cohesiveness between sales and management when both are different positions at the property. The pay for office assistants & maintenance is not always great and we have a tendency to not be able to get good help.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay to get better people especially support staff at properties.
