Campus Advantage is an industry leader with global experience in student housing. Campus Advantage provides property management, consulting, acquisitions, and development with the goal of creating successful student housing communities. We’re kind of a big deal and we didn’t get there by resting on our laurels. We’re a hardworking, scrappy bunch.
We’re seeking someone especially handy for the Maintenance Technician position. This is a critical role in our community’s continued success and a great fit for someone possessing exceptional organization and communication skills. The Maintenance Technician reports to the head honcho of the team, the Maintenance Supervisor.
Who are we looking for? Hint: people who share our values.
Do you want to make your mom proud? We live the Golden Rule, trying always to do the right thing. Do you have the ability to work well under pressure and prioritize multiple projects while remaining focused on the level of service they deliver, all the while, juggling numerous deadlines? If so, you’ll rock this!
Experience is important! We need someone with 1+ years of experience in facilities management and a high school diploma (or equivalent).
While not required, you get Brownie points for having a HVAC and/or CPO certification.
Passion. What’s more important than experience is an upbeat, friendly demeanor. A passion for how the work you do impacts those around you! At Campus Advantage, we desire to do our best, and we never, ever give up! Slackers need not apply.
MOJO. Are you motivated and possess the ability to work independently with little or no supervision? If so, we want to talk to you. We aren’t interested in micromanaging you because, at Campus Advantage, we attract and charm others through our success and outlook on life. We take our work and our communities, but not ourselves, seriously!
What will you be doing every day? As a part of the Maintenance Team, you're critical in helping us complete our mission and the list of responsibilities is long. We believe the fundamentals of what you do fall into 5 key areas:
Lead and Communicate: You must be a communication ninja! We trust you, not only to communicate with residents and teammates, but to maintain confidentiality of information you'll be privy to, so put our values into action!
Plan the Work/Work the Plan: In the case of emergency, it is all hands-on deck to execute our emergency preparedness plan. You will be instrumental in implementing the property’s “turn” process. Safety First! Making sure you are following OSHA standards and complying with established Campus Advantage policies and procedures.
Heads on Beds: In order to provide amazing experiences to our residents, we have to get them in the door! We want our resident’s to be proud of where they live so maintaining the property to the highest standards possible, including the exterior curb appeal of the property, is of upmost importance. As a Maintenance team of superheroes, you do this by responding to and completing maintenance requests in a timely manner. We keep those heads on beds by providing outstanding customer service to our residents!
Pay the Bills: This is a multi-million dollar operation. Keep those dollars in mind when assisting the Maintenance Supervisor in reviewing and recommending new supplies and maintenance methods to improve site maintenance operations. Materials and equipment don't magically show up! Keep those dollars in mind when using, storing, and maintaining maintenance inventory of equipment, supplies, and materials.
Preserve the Asset: You will need to kick butt at facilitating the notorious process student housing calls “turn." You are the master of performing building and room inspections, and performing routine minor and moderate repairs, including plumbing, carpentry, paint, and electrical work.
