Careers at Wimmer: More Than Just a Job

< Back to blog
Local Communities, Milwaukee Living


Careers are often thought of as just a source of income, or something to keep you occupied from the hours of 9-5.  

But at Wimmer Communities, we see the time at our workplace as rewarding, fun and fulfilling, building  connections with our teammates and residents while getting work done. Join us while we take a look at what makes Wimmer so special.  


A lot of the events that we hold at Wimmer are created with the idea of bringing our teammates together, building a strong, long-lasting bond between all of us. This type of cohesion that we foster empowers all of us to do our best work. Some of the most notable events that we host are our Family Night at Concerts in the Gardens where we enjoy local music and food, a boat cruise where we drift down the Milwaukee River, and an annual golf outing and dinner where we have some competitive fun!  Sprinkled in between those events are smaller, yet important events, where we come together as a team. Stay updated on how we’re building our team culture here 



We also aim to give back to the communities in which we live, work and play. We often volunteer at the Hunger Task Force, where we have worked in the fields picking and washing produce. Through Habitat for Humanity, we have framed homes and painted. During the holiday season, we volunteer for Operation Christmas Child, where we collect and donate gifts for children all over the world. These events build camaraderie and a sense of a team, when we are all working towards one common goal. Read more about the ways we give back to our community here. 


Wimmer Communities has been voted as a Top Workplace for the past eight consecutive years based solely on the results of a survey completed by our team members, and conducted by a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. This award is a testament to how much our team appreciates the exceptional culture that is maintained each and every day. Read more about our accomplishments here.  

Our communities have also received awards from the public. For the past eight years, Wimmer has been awarded “Top Choice Apartment” and “Top Choice Finalist” and one of our senior communities, Forest Ridge, has been chosen by the public as a finalist for “Top Choice Assisted Living.” These awards are a testament to how hard our team works to ensure our communities are a place to call home. 


Whether in the corporate office or at one of our communities, you are sure to find everyone with a smile on their face. We are a welcoming bunch of bright individuals who serve to lift each other up throughout the workplace. We also truly value each other and each other’s accomplishments in life. We often celebrate birthdays, work anniversaries and life events because we truly care about each other.  


Wimmer also offers unmatched employee benefits. Some of these benefits include generous paid time off, the use of property amenities, and prioritization of health and wellness of our team members through insurance plans and yearly health challenges. Learn more about the benefits we offer here
