Productive and hands on sales office, providing customer service and sales skills.
Sales and Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 9 August 2012
A typical day at Mattamy Homes includes serving clients with information on available homes. My day begins with checking emails, voice mails and booking appointments. My day progresses to contacting purchasers to keep in touch during the new home experience. I also take time to manage the office in regards to inventory, ordering supplies, staff scheduling and preparing reports for senior management. Mattamy Homes provides a very friendly and support environment for all its employees. The supervisors and management team are supportive and understanding, they also teach and help build career oriented skills. As a full time employee I am able to work with junior staff in providing training and support, we work well as a team and independently to handle tasks at hand. Being an administrative assistant at Mattamy Homes has many enjoyable moments such as a smile on a purchasers face once they sign the paper work of their new home. I also enjoy the interaction with our purchasers and potential clients. The hardest part of my job would be seeing disappointed new home owners; sometimes the experience is over whelming, sometimes finance, there are a variety of issues that can make a purchaser upset. However all of this is always, if not often, changed into positive moments.
My job as an administrative assistant provides me with experience to work effectively and efficiently. It allows me to learn every day and to be a strong asset to a growing company.
Contract Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 September 2017
This was a challenging role but exciting, constantly looking for cost saving measures in both design and materials. Working with suppliers and framers to improve design and efficient builds. Management was hands off giving your room to grow, but there in the back ground for assistance if required. Managing people is the hardest part of the position looking for the win win solutions. Most enjoyable was seeing progress in the reduction of costs.
Customer Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 22 July 2017
Learning about the construction business with Mattamy was more than an experience, but life learning. The managers took the time for us to get to know the process, deal with different departments and learn about the entire experience for employees and for homeowners. This company went above and beyond on all levels.

If you're not "one of the boys" be prepared to be thrown under the bus and fired for someone else's mistake. I have lost track of how many people I have seen this happen to. Most of the management are buddies who regularly go drinking and camp together and they will band together if you try to point out the obvious discrepancies in the "culture" of the company. If you are not in with the crowd be prepared to do a large majority of the work while others take credit for your successes and blame you for their failures.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 8 March 2017
I was immediately judged with respect to my age. This is a very young group of people that most would consider the "cool kids". People in this company act like they are better than everyone else. Strong sense of entitlement with all staff. Very competitive.
Customer Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 13 February 2017
I very much enjoyed my time at Mattamy and it saddens me that I have to leave! The staff truly are like family and the working environment is exceptional. They always help you grow in your role and get to where you want to be.

Backhoe Operator (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 28 November 2016
the company itself is good. the supervisors ruin it all. they set you up to fail no matter what. you can never get a answer for an urgent problem from them. you do as they say and its never good enough. they end any employee moral. they say they "know the job" meanwhile they sit in their office all day or drive around and do nothing all day.. and clearly forgot what its like on the front lines. no "builder" cares about anything or anyone but themselves or the garbage houses they close. no one takes pride in their work, mainly the upper management. they want to keep people who lack intelligence for the position.
theres bullc**p to everyjob, just too much for nothing at this place.
work all year round. benifits are ok. but theres better out there.
Learning on a daily basis with new challanges daily.

Warranty Administrator (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 8 March 2016
The company was filled with team players very flexible with their employees. there was a high volume of inquires via phone and emails. The hardest part of the job is under standing the diverse language.
Estimator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 September 2015
This was a great company at one point. You felt you made a difference and your team was like family. The company was quick to reward loyalty and build its employees with new skills. It created loyalty. It was the kind of loyalty that drove you to give your all and produce as much value as you could.
Administrative Assistant (warranty) Temporary (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 August 2015
Working at Mattamy homes was quite an experience. It was a fun place to work. I learnt a great deal of patience and tolerance working there. It was a very demanding job but fulfilling at the same time. It was also very fast paced. My coworkers were very funny and nice. My only concern working at the trailers was that it was always dusty and dirty due to it being a job site. Being an extreme neat freak, i could not stay for long. I had to find something more suitable for me. No regrets working there.
