How to Get Hired
We asked Sun Communities, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
At Sun Communities, our team is considered one of our most valuable assets. Together as a team, we embrace the core success attributes that make Sun a great place to work. In each position, we’re looking for candidates who display great customer service skills, intensity, accountability, empowerment and commitment. Our goals are to inspire, reward, and transform team members to be the best working versions of themselves. Embracing these attributes and sharing a passion for a collaborative company culture is a sure way to show us that you will be a great fit at Sun.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective team members can get our attention by showing us that they are prepared for the interview, are knowledgeable about our company, and have an understanding of what the job they’re applying for will entail. Further, we want to see that the candidate is passionate about our business, is a self-motivator, and is dedicated to learning more. With more specialized roles, we are looking for a well-formatted resume that highlights their specific skills and clearly and concisely outlines recent experience relative to the position.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Veteran hiring and seasonal positions will continue to be a focus. Sun believes that service to our country should be rewarded with opportunities to make the most of the skills and dedication developed while serving in the military. We value veterans’ discipline, integrity, and commitment and look to continue the development of these qualities through employment with Sun. We are committed to integrating veterans as team members, starting from their first interview and continuing throughout their employment. Many of our seasonal positions are filled by residents, while team members can participate in our unique Work Camper program, which allows them to earn site rent in addition to their hourly pay. Returning seasonal team members earn increased pay, and bonuses are given at the end of the season. The best part is that there is always the potential for seasonal workers to transition into year-round roles.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Interested candidates can learn more about Sun Communities by visiting our social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube. We have separate Twitter feeds for RV resorts and manufactured housing, as these operations provide very different opportunities. In addition to these platforms, we have a fabulous company website with up-to-date information on the company and our open positions. We are also proud to be listed on Glassdoor, a wonderful website where we encourage all past and present team members to discuss their experience working at Sun Communities.
