Date: 06/11/2021 19:01 PM

City: Lawrence, Kansas

Contract type: Full Time

Work schedule: Full Day

POSITION: Turn Team Member (Temporary, Non-Exempt)

COMPENSATION: Hourly, not Benefits eligible


"Turn" is the period of time where hundreds of students move out just days before a fresh crop is moving back in. Meaning, time is of the essence. This year, move-out day is on July 31st and move-in day is on August 19th but we're looking for someone who is available to join our team immediately. As you can imagine, there is plenty of preparatory work to be done!

Each day our Community Manager will assign you or your crew a list of areas or apartments that needs some level of attention. Projects can include assisting with unit trash outs, groundskeeping, assisting maintenance with HVAC or preventative maintenance projects, furniture assembly and installation, and helping residents on Move-In day. Turning student apartments is about staying on schedule, so be sure you understand the time constraints of any project you are given.

RESPONSIBILITIES (Including but not limited to):

  • Furniture Installation – when furniture arrives at a property during turn it is often all hands-on deck to unload, deliver, install and clean up. If you are on furniture installation you must be physically able to lift 50 pounds or more and can operate smaller tools like allen wrenches for assembling the furniture. Usually, jobs will be broken up into delivery, assembly, and clean-up, but you may end up doing all three.
  • Groundskeeping - property beautification is often put on the back burner during turn but remains a critical aspect day-to-day operations for the community. This can include picking up trash around the exterior of the buildings, landscaping (mowing, edging, trimming bushes, planting flowers), walking hallways and common areas, emptying trash bins, etc.
  • Housekeeping - along the same lines as groundskeeping, our team may be short-handed on cleaning during turn. Housekeeping could include sweeping and mopping floors, wiping down common areas and fitness equipment, cleaning offices and bathrooms, floor treatments, or shampooing carpets. These are necessary services that every community needs to maintain during turn.
  • Move-in Day Assistance – residents and families often need help to get moved in as quickly as possible, and we want to assist them with this. If you are assigned to help residents move in, then you'll have to be extra careful with their personal items. You will be interacting directly with our customers so you must be friendly and respectful at all times and report any incidences or complaints to the Community Manager immediately.
  • Maintenance Assistance – maintenance workers at our communities are tireless and their projects cover every physical part of the property. During turn, they may need help with their punch lists (changing light bulbs, replacing air filters, smoke detector batteries, etc.), minor repairs (replacing a garbage disposal), major repairs (new HVAC condenser installation), painting touch up in units or common areas, preventative maintenance projects (testing emergency systems, inspecting boilers, cleaning compactor rooms, maintaining common areas), or any type of project where the maintenance team needs an extra hand.
  • Occupied bedrooms will only be entered when accompanied by an on-site team member or member of the Turn Team. All interactions with residents and their families and guests should be limited and professional at all times.
  • All necessary equipment will be provided to you by the onsite manager or Turn Team. Be sure to stay hydrated especially when working outside. If you are given any equipment you aren't comfortable operating should let the onsite management or Turn Team know immediately. Always use proper safety equipment and protect yourself from the elements, this can be as simple as wearing gloves and a hat when outside.
