About Palm Cove Apartments

Palm Cove Apartments is a tropical residential apartment community in Bradenton, FL, a few miles from Anna Maria Island and just steps from 50+ restaurants, grocery options, and retail stores. We’re a resort-style property with lush grounds, unique amenities, and spacious 1- to 3-bedroom apartment homes.

The Palm Cove staff work closely together on a daily basis to maintain our community’s operations. With our combined experience and our unique personalities and skill sets, we create a super-team of multi-housing professionals!

Maintenance Technician: Job Overview

As a Maintenance Technician, you’ll enjoy working in a fast-paced environment where no day looks the same – providing hands-on service to current residents in addition to servicing the overall maintenance needs of the community. You’ll need an eye for detail, a passion for fixing things, and a knack for problem solving.

Having home maintenance taken care of is a big reason people continue to rent, and our maintenance team is constantly getting shout-outs in our online reviews and residents surveys. This means polite, professional communications skills are a must!

  • Dental and vision care options
  • 401K with employer match (after 1 year of employment)

  • Opportunity to live on site (with access to premium amenities)

On-site living reduces commute times and work costs for our staff, allowing them to focus on what matters – spending time with family, pursuing hobbies and interests, and enjoying life!

What You Provide
