Maintenance I – Porter

# of Openings
Liv Communities


Apply to be a Porter with Liv today. When you’re a porter you’re an engineer and artist, all rolled into one. You make sure all outdoor aspects of your property are functioning correctly and are safe.  You know that things can’t just “work” — they also have to be attractive to new and current residents.  The grounds are your masterpiece, and your work is seen by hundreds of people every day!


At Liv Communities, we are in the people business. Ask our employees why and they’ll say, “Because we can help people live fuller lives.”  But that doesn’t just apply to our residents. We invest in our team members and promote from within so we can build a long-lasting, sustainable team for our residents.  We demand quality, but we know you’ll have fun in the process. The word “boredom” is not in our vocabulary. Can you thrive in a culture like that? Do you believe serving others is the best thing a person can do?


Whether you’ve worked in property management before or not, you’re someone we’d like to talk to. 


Of course, work wouldn’t be work without some responsibilities.  You’ll be responsible for all aspects of maintaining parking areas, property lawns, plant beds, irrigation systems and the swimming pool. You’ll work inside too, caring for entryways, stairways and hallways.  You’ll coordinate with contractors hired for snow removal and extra landscaping, and will complete maintenance.  From simple everyday hazards to seasonal maintenance, safety will be a top concern for your position at all times. If you can do all of these things, and you’re outgoing, passionate, and ethical, then what are you waiting for? Apply today.
