Hunt Military Communities announced they are hiring up to 30 people for property management and maintenance positions, among others, in their local Hawaii community as layoffs across the country mount.

Pacific Business News reports:

Hunt Military Communities is looking to hire up to 30 people help run military housing complexes on Oahu, and dozens of other companies in Hawaii are advertising for employees, even as tens of thousands of workers file for unemployment benefits because of the layoffs related to the coronavirus.

Hunt Military Communities, which operates as Ohana Military Communities on Oahu, is hiring for property management, leasing, customer service and maintenance positions at Pearl Harbor and the Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe.

“We’re looking for solid people,” Daniel Turkin, senior director of operations at Hunt Military Communities, told Pacific Business News. “There’s so many people applying for unemployment we think we can offer people some really good jobs.”

Some of the customer service jobs can be done remotely, and Hunt is ready to train new hires to get them up to speed.

…“We don’t intend to hold off on hiring, we can hire now,” Turkin said. “We’re a phenomenal company and we’re looking for people who are ready to get to work and help take care of our families here.”
