It’s different here.

Our Guiding Principles are at the core of what we do and anchor all decisions and strategies. Our leaders and team members embody these principles, which remain at the center of our story of success.

Guiding Principles

Come hungry

The Johnson Group companies hire talented “business athletes” with visionary minds and the drive to advance. We celebrate initiative, recognize capabilities and, for those who contribute, offer new responsibilities and opportunities that help you realize your full potential.

Come, stay

Our structure and culture create a unique environment – one in which our team members can thrive early and earn responsibility quickly.

“There is a willingness and commitment from the Johnsons to put talented team members where they can be the most impactful. In just a few years time I’ve had the chance to live and work in three of the country’s most exciting cities. I don’t think I would have had the same opportunities if I worked elsewhere.”

Chris Santoro, President of Self-Storage Division at Johnson Development Associates
American Credit Acceptance

“I am constantly reminded that I have opportunities here. People value people here. The leaders I work with aim to recognize each person’s unique talents and identify how we can utilize them to benefit both the company and the individual.”

Tori Lawing, Director for Funding and Underwriting
OTO Development

“One thing that sets The Johnson Group apart for me is the transparency and the trust I have in leadership, and the accessibility of higher-level management. The CEO’s office is right next to mine and he keeps the door open to everyone. I’ve worked in several big companies and I’ve never before had that kind of access to leadership, which I think is important.”

Caleb Beasley, Corporate Director of Revenue Management
OTO Development

“I hire a lot of general managers and other team members and, most of the time, I’m looking to fill a position because of a promotion, not because someone left. Whenever I hire someone, I always ask them what’s their professional goal because I want to help get them there.”

Seema Bandukda, Regional Director of Operations, Southwest

Working here, you’re going to be challenged to do more than the status quo, and I enjoy that. I know every day is going to be different, with new challenges and opportunities, and that’s a rewarding environment.

Marcus Boyd, Senior Manager of Funding Operations
Johnson Development Associates

“We are different from other builders and developers in that we are privately owned and well capitalized, which gives our team members a great sense of stability. We have not only the financial capability but also the desire to hold onto our entire development team through the natural highs and lows. In other companies, no matter how much they want to hold onto their people, sometimes they can’t.”

Eric Rasmussen, Self-Storage Regional Director
American Credit Acceptance

“We always try to boost our team members, keep morale high, make things fun, so no one has a day where they wake up and feel like they don’t want to come to work.”

Brittany Thompson, Team Lead
Johnson Development Associates

“What I saw during my internship that prompted me to ultimately accept a job offer here was the willingness of everyone to extend responsibility to someone who is young and new. I didn’t want to be just another cog in the corporate machine, and I knew that here, I would be able to add value, get my hands dirty, and learn by taking on real responsibility.”

Megan Horey, Self-Storage Real Estate Analyst

At ACA our rallying cry – ‘better together’ – has been absolutely imprinted on our company and on every single associate. The idea of teamwork, and valuing what each person brings to the table, is something we truly live by here.
