Lots of pressure, little help
Employee, New Brunswick - September 29, 2015
Constant pressure from management to work more even when your tasks are completed. Loosely designed contracts that require you to do whatever additional duties they add without compensation. Very hard to maintain a balance of home and work as you are required to do whatever is needed whenever you are asked. 24/7. Benefit package is good but salary barely covers the amounts they charge you for rent and you are required to live where you work. Most resident managers are considered part time employees even though they are required to perform many tasks daily and be on call 24/7. So salary reflects this part time employee status and then they take your rent off your salary and you get whatever is left. Management is constantly changing so any good relationship you have built up over time is back to square one almost every year. Hard to get upgrades to units done, contractors sometimes go a long time before receiving payment. Very high turn over rate in all positions of employment. No loyalty to hard working contractors if it means saving a few dollars.
