This is a story of an ambitious Maintenance Tech with the desire to cross-train into Sales.
Dressed to impress on Friday morning Mr. Terrence Abney walks in with his Sales Binder and the Art of Craigslist Outline in hand, ready to start the day. Calls start rolling in, residents stopping by, new residents arriving to move in, another busy day was flying by. Then comes the call Terrence is waiting for. Someone who needs a home immediately.
Right before the end of the day Mr. Imtiez walks in. Everyone else is tied up providing customer service to residents, and Terrence is not the kind of guy to make a customer wait. He explains to Mr. Imtiez that he was in training, but he's happy to show him the apartment home to the best of his ability. Mr. Imtiez agrees happily. After 20 minutes they both return talking and laughing. Terrence, with the huge smile on his face, informs us that Mr. Imtiez wants to move in today! Both Mr. Imtiez and Terrence left with smiles on their faces.
Terrence Abney, Maintenance Tech extraordinaire, and up and coming Solution Provider!

"I began my career with McKinley over 2½ years ago. I started as a Customer Service Manager then promoted to a Community Manager. McKinley has always given me the tools and support I needed as I made decisions and developed in my career.
McKinley is definitely different than other companies. McKinley utilitizes their ability to promote successfully from within the company. McKinley's core mission is built on developing home grown talent and helping us to reach the next level of our potential.
I can say without a doubt, there is no other company I would rather work for. I really enjoy the people I work with and I especially enjoy my customers I get to see everyday.
McKinley is the #1 company to work for!
Senior Sales Associate, McKinley
I love working for McKinley! I jumped on board in April of 2004 to join a team of professionals that is truly committed to excellence! It is inspiring to work for a company that encourages growth and offers much opportunity for advancement! Leadership has been very supportive of my efforts and is always available to provide desired training or advice. I am motivated here at McKinley to utilize my strengths and seek creative solutions.
McKinley not only offers development to its employees, but shows appreciation towards them as well. This company provides bonuses, benefits, and holds company events to reward its employees! I truly appreciate all that I have learned from the fabulous people I've crossed paths with here. I am very proud to say that I am part of Great Team McKinley.
The secret of joy in work is contained in one word -- excellence.
To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.
