Company Work Culture:
Being part of the team at The Nicholson Companies is an unusual experience. We are the top provider of self storage management and related services in the southeast. If you are looking for a place where hard work and being the best at what you do are recognized and rewarded, this is the place for you! Our corporate office employs less than 30 individuals. Each new hire is carefully screened not only for skill set but to ensure the best fit into our unusual work culture. Backbiting, betrayal and the usual dysfunction found in many corporate environments is not to be found here. Read our Team Covenant (https://thenicholsoncompanies.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?docid=0e27fce50391a456eadb60ffe4b1ba1fc&authkey=AfkuiwQtbXvjJan8KPjoTv4) and you’ll get the idea. Likewise if you read our Mission Statement (https://thenicholsoncompanies.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?docid=02075948570354c8db43fa588a5500d80&authkey=Aa5wUYjUiTh9JdUxyFWE4g0) you’ll see that providing a rewarding career to our employees is our number 2 priority; second only to our loyalty to our Owner/Clients. As you can see in the above “Benefits” description, being a member of our team offers opportunities well beyond the usual salary and health coverage provided by most employers. We share a wealth of experiences that promote fun and personal growth and whenever feasible we include our significant others in Company sponsored activities.
