as a result of many renovations it's a great place to work or live
Maintenance Person (Former Employee) – London, ON – 2 January 2014
A typical work day starts at 7 am changing the full garbage compactor bin with a empty bin and reporting to on site office to get works orders. The day is spent going from unit to unit performing various maintenance repairs as stipulated in resume. The hardest part of the job is unclogging the garbage shute in between floors and frequent leaks in hot water line requiring shut off risers, locate leak behind wall and repair leak and water damaged wall or ceiling. The boilers in all 3 buildings often shut down and were scheduled for replacement. A two man maintenance staff is required to stay on top of work orders of three high-rise buildings. Management had lengthy difficulty finding second maintenance man to assist me, and work orders fell behind. Since then there has been significant renovations with complete overhaul of plumbing water supply and new boilers in all three buildings in addition exterior and interior renovations.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the gratitude of a satisfied tenant when I fix their toilet or broken stove.
