Building Superintendent, Toronto, ON - 26 July 2017
Productive and fun workplace.A typical day is going through work orders, reviewing them, calling contractors and scheduling repairs and inspections. Busy times are during the last and first weeks of the month. Tenants can sometimes be annoying but you should know how not to take them personally when they're furious. When you are working in this field, you get fulfilled and satisfied when you're able to help and solve the tenant's issues. However, it sometimes becomes frustrating when contractors are not able to do their jobs well. Sometimes, you are also thankful that some of the tenants are easy to talk to and are appreciative of what you do for them. Property management is a small industry and when management changes, there are always positives and negatives to them. People will always compare the past and the current managements and they will always find something good about the current one when you're providing good service and will always find something bad about the current one when there are so many problems existing. Experience in this field is always a plus for you go back to what you've experienced before in some scenarios when you're trying to come up with a decision in a particular situation.
