Resident Property Manager (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 18 March 2014
The job was resident manager, turns out to be a high phone marketing job with little property management aspect to the job. A promise of caring for your residents with the Holiday Touch. After you sign up a resident and they move in they care little about the clients and more about keeping the place full and the bottom line. Back stabbing staff both in middle management above you and the staff the work for you. High turnover of manages. The property I managed had has 16 different manages in two years. That should speak volumes.
Job is what you make it - Fun to work with seniors
