Personnel is one of the most important factors in a successful multi-family environment. We’ve all heard the old saying “You’re only as good as your weakest link”. We believe this to be true and we take great pride in staffing our properties with the most enthusiastic, outgoing, well training people in the business and it shows every day through our positive feedback and overall performance onsite. When we hire a new employee we are investing in not only our future but the future of the employee as well. We go to great lengths to make sure that we give that new employee every opportunity to excel in the industry.
A.C. Lewis Management believes effective training is an integral part of any successful multi-family management company. We have found effective training helps in overcoming a number of different obstacles that are common in this industry. From leasing techniques to web based software utilization and everything in between. Starting from the point of hire, it is imperative that all staff members ranging from groundskeepers to property managers are correctly trained for their role as a valued member. We accomplish this through an extensive new hire training class, continuing education course and regular evaluations of performance.
Our Interview Process begins with an initial phone screen. If we determine that your skill set is a match for our position and company culture, we will contact you to schedule a phone interview. Following the phone interview, the type and number of interviews and interviewers can vary depending upon the position.
The phone interview is a detailed formal interview that is conducted entirely on the phone. During the phone interview, you will be given more information about our company and the position for which you are applying. You will also be given the opportunity to share your experience and qualifications. The phone interview will last between 20-30 minutes and will involve a series of situational questions that are closely related to our position. You will be given time to ask any questions that you may have at the end of the interview. It is at this time that we will discuss applicable benefits and compensation.
The in-person interview will be conducted by a member(s) of our Human Resources Department and will take place at our Corporate Headquarters or at specified location, if located outside of the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Area. If located outside of Baton Rouge, we may conduct an in-person interview via video conference or travel to the designated area for an on-site interview.
During the in-person interview, you will be asked to sign forms authorizing your approval for us to proceed with background checks.
Typically, our process is to conduct first interviews and select the top three candidates to return for a second Interview. This interview usually takes place at the location of the position and will encompass an interview with the hiring manager.
Once a candidate is selected, Human Resources will conduct a background check which includes, but is not limited to, a criminal background check, education, employment history, credit and professional and personal references. Upon satisfactory findings of the background check, Human Resources will call the selected candidate with an employment offer.
