Mainstreet’s promote from within culture

Back To List

My day starts with " It's a great day at Mainstreet". I started with Mainstreet in 2013. A fresh graduate student out of school looking for a job. Mainstreet gave me a chance. I started as a Resident Manager and I am now a Regional Manager Trainee and I know something better is coming next.  Mainstreet is a great place to work for a passionate individual. Lots of resources for development. Lots of opportunities to advance your career.

They train you for management positions and allow you the opportunity to transfer to any of their operational cities.

The company is very willing to send you to training classes for the property management courses and they pay for it. You will most likely get Leadership training within the first 1 to 2 years of being on the job.

I always got acknowledged for my achievements and hard work. My opinion matters and my work ethic is matched by upper management.

I have referred numerous friends to work with Mainstreet and they're all more than happy working here now. Research suggests that having friends at work is an important determinant of engagement. For managers, that also means having friends who are peers. To encourage these relationships, Mainstreet creates regular opportunities for managers to gather and discuss common problems, to share best practices, and to maintain relationships.

Organizations that create significant opportunities to develop their employees create a structure where people want to work for the long-term. Those organizations maintain their institutional knowledge and save on the high costs associated with turnover.

It's a great day at Mainstreet, indeed!
