Two Generations of Maintenance Supervisors
In 1986, then Maintenance Supervisor Ulysses Inzer helped a resident move in at Carriage House of Kendallville. Twenty-eight years later, in 2014, now Maintenance Supervisor Charles (Chuck) Inzer completed the move out paperwork for the same resident.
“Seeing my father’s name on the form was awesome,” said Chuck. “Honestly, it brought me to tears. Every once in a while I see his name on paperwork and it’s really cool.”
Today, Chuck has that special form framed in his office.
Before Chuck started working at Carriage House of Kendallville, he learned about the Gene B. Glick Company from his dad.
“My dad used to tell me what a great company Glick was. He talked about Mr. Glick and remembered how he knew everyone’s name. He told me that Gene was one of the nicest guys he ever met.”
Chuck wasn’t particularly interested in working in maintenance, but once he bought a home of his own, he wanted to learn more about the industry. Now, he’s celebrating his 17th anniversary with the company.
“This is the first job I’ve had where I can confidently say I see myself retiring here. I knew that right away with Glick.”
Chuck enjoys the employee benefits, paid time off and compensation provided by Glick, but his biggest reason for loving his job is how he’s treated.
“The best part of working for Glick is the people. When company leaders come to our community, they take the time to get to know you. I’ve also developed great relationships with many of the residents here over the years.”
He shared that there are still a couple of original residents from when Carriage House of Kendallville opened in 1979. And over the years, he’s seen kids grow up there, move away, then come back to live with children of their own. Some of his fondest memories of his time at Glick are community events and hog roasts with residents and colleagues, and he looks forward to more events when it’s completely safe to gather again.
Through everything, Chuck remembers the three rules his father Ulysses taught him to live by.
- Treat everything like it’s yours. Take pride in it.
- If you want respect from someone, you have to treat them with respect.
- Don’t ever think you’re better than anyone else.
Thank you, Chuck, for your dedication to your residents and the community you serve.
