About Us

Maintenance worker

California West is a property management company that employs a team of maintenance workers to help repair small maintenance problems (replace a faucet, paint a wall, change a lock, etc.) at the properties we manage. We have a full time permanent staff of seven maintenance workers plus a supervisor and every summer we hire additional help for the seasonal turn-over of our college housing inventory in San Luis Obispo. This summer, we will be turning over 200+ units in the months of July and August.

Openings are available for summer help and you will need to be skilled at general plumbing, electrical, drywall, and carpentry.

This is a temporary seasonal job that provides work for the months of July and August only. Perhaps work may start as soon as late June. You will be expected to work Monday through Friday from 9am until 5:30pm under the supervision of our maintenance supervisor, who assigns work orders each morning and who checks on the status of jobs throughout the day.

E-mail us at jobs@california-west.com for more information or to submit an application. You may also drop off applications at either of our two offices. No phone calls please.

The job responsibilities include residing at the property, showing apartments beginning in March each year until fully rented (this year we rented after a single showing) and performing other regular tasks such as picking up trash and reporting any problems that may arise to our main office. Compensation is a reduction in rent on a two bedroom apartment. You will need additional sources of income to pay rent and for living expenses.
