The lack of customer service training for the maintenance technicians is frightening. Most training for this all-important team focuses on the ‘how to’ of plumbing, electrical and HVAC repair. Yet they actually spend more time with our customers than the office staff does. The Service Techs often see the residents more than the office staff.  Maintenance cannot be done with technology. Too often the only training this team gets is nuts and bolts; plumbing, HVAC, Carpentry and make readies. Training in customer service, dealing with difficult people and public relations are equally important.
