Property Manager (Former Employee) – London, ON – 5 October 2016
The staff are amazing, good, honest workers dedicated to achieving a job well done. Resources run too thin in each department to bring the level of service up to where it should be for obtaining new clients and client retention. Losing a client is a big deal and realizing the resources are not available to do the "job well" is an even bigger deal. People are what make any business - without good people not being overworked and receiving fair wages - the product suffers.
Honest, hard workers in all departments
No wage increases, limited benefits, lack of human resources
I can say that I have enjoyed working with Larlyn. The company has an excellent training and education program which has allowed me to pursue my designation without having to pay for it. I have found management at all levels more than willing to assist when it comes to dealing with issues or providing assistance. There are definite advancement opportunities as the company continues to grow. I have found everyone I worked more than willing to pitch in and assist when required.
Accountant (Former Employee) – London, ON – 12 April 2017
Not worth pursuing if you value work-life balance. Focused on the bottom line , nothing else matters. Huge turnover in all departments and not because they are growing. Employees definitely not the greatest asset. Changes all the time, no consistency in management or organizational structure. Just stay away.
Accounts Payable Administrator (Former Employee) – London, ON – 13 February 2017
I worked at Larlyn for 2.5 years. I started at a temporary rate being told that I would get a raise after 3 months. I never got a raise the entire time I worked there even though I was promised a raise many times. As people left the company they were not being replaced instead their work load was dumped on everyone else. Trying to let management know how overwhelmed everyone one was get us no where.
Very enjoying work during a difficult corporate time.
Assistant Property Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 24 June 2016
I enjoyed my work very much as it required a lot of different duties in one day. I worked on reception, accounting receivable and payable, payroll and employee expenses. I prepared reports, invoices and correspondence for 5 property managers as well as the CFO. However the company, quartered in London, Ontario was going through some large transitions and in the end the Ottawa office was closed. This took a period of time to come to light and it was very difficult working with clients during the transition. I was expected to handle property management issues for which I was not qualified. Our clients were very patient and understanding.
Leasing Agent/Caretaker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 August 2013
This was a fantastic job for me. Management and co-workers were great. It came at a personal time in my life when i really needed it and it was what felt like a "family enviroment". I enjoyed the physical work at that time in my life and performed some tasks that were new to me and that i enjoyed. I had never worked in this type of business before so i got to learn some new things and add to my knowledge base and form some friendships that i still have today!
