I did it all at one point or another as an assistant. You are there to be back up/overflow in case the manager is out as well as training for your next promotion.

In my opinion, in many ways the Asst Mgr is as vital as a Manager, and wears as many hats!!! Its a very key and important position. Also, in many ways they work harder than Managers!!!

I would have a discussion with your property manager and the maintenance supervisor. Is that the way it’s always been done? Now is a opportunity for change. If the supervisor doesn’t currently have the skill set to perform those tasks, 2022 may be a great year for growth and learning a new skill sets.

Normal. I do all of that and more. It’s wonderful when you have a Maint supervisor to do those things but in my time, I’ve only had one. The others required assistance.

The enumerated quantity of items devoid of the context of how much volume isn’t really significant. If it is one unit then you probably should have more tasks. If it is a high rise and you are by yourself then you’re awesome. Likely your somewhere in the middle, average.

It’s different at different companies and under different managers. My MS handle the turn stuff as he should. I always my my APM to know my job but not do it. The best thing is to be a team and both everyone help each other when it’s needed but we all need our own duties.

The Manager need to re enforce what everyone’s job duties, it is very unfortunate that some communities put all of this on the Assistant Managers who are very under paid for what the expectations are. I have managed for 19 years and my maintenance supervisor is responsible for all the make readies, scheduling for turns and closing his own work orders. Assistant is the Managers right hand person.
Learn all that you can this will make you a better Manager

I’ve literally made a list. So when I do get my own property I can remember what and how it felt. It’s been one heck of a learning experience!
