Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 January 2014
Tight timelines and stringent financial reporting requirements make working in the accounting team a definite challenge. However, there is lots to learn and a sense of accomplishment at the end of a task. Managers are approachable and willing to teach. Co-workers are always willing to lend a hand.
Main lesson learned: the importance of multi-tasking and prioritizing.
Administrative Assistant - Student Internship (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 May 2017
This was a student summer job for me. I only worked there for two months, in two different buildings. I worked with the management team of each building. This place was where i learned most of my admin skills, plus everyone was great.
Property Accountant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 May 2017
I worked in the accounting department and the typical week required 50 hours of work, while it was advertised as 35. The processes and documentation were so cumbersome that they seemed almost prehistoric. In 3 accounting positions the total turnover was 10 people over 3 years. That shows you the burn out. I received tremendous positive feedback right until I was told that I did not need to come in any more. No warnings, no feedback...just done one one day with no real explanation.
Development Accounting Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 November 2016
jibberish, jibber-jabber and gobbledygook refer to speech or other use of language that is nonsense, or that appears to be nonsense. It may include speech sounds that are not actual words, or forms such as language games or highly specialized jargon that seems non-sensical to outsiders.

Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 June 2016
Management was poorly executed. As a guest services representative when new policies were formed they were never properly communicated. Things were passed down through the 'grape vine' and then you were reprimand for not following correct "procedure". Women/girls were very catty and unprofessional from management.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto – 18 May 2016
Learned everything I know about the industry because of the great leadership and fun experiences. I reported to the VP and was given exciting and new opportunities to learn each day. My co-workers gave me every chance to succeed and ensured I was enjoying my summer internship.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 6 April 2016
Thrown into a world where you need to hit the ground running although you have no idea what you are doing. Manager of department is not able to figure out how best to train and retain for this particular position. Said manager also fired previous employee and blocked that individual from moving departments. The procedures to get things done are ridiculous and redundant.
Expected to know complicated leasing language with no proper training, direct management needs development
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 February 2016
Great work/life balance. Competitive salaries. Great opportunities for advancement. Employee engagement is high, with events every quarter. Hardest part of the job is dealing with demanding high profile tenants. Best part of the job is location.
Administrative Coordinator-Finance (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 February 2016
A typical day is very busy, but your hard work is rewarded with genuine appreciation from management and great perks. I work with a great team. My supervisor is always very supportive, ensuring I have the tools to succeed in my role. Working in administration means a high volume of tasks and lots of running around on certain days.
Customer Service/Cashier/Customer Experience (Former Employee) – Dieppe, NB – 23 April 2015
Ensure safety and great customer service. It was very important to stay positive, because your mood influenced your work ethic. Once you proved yourself management would entrust you with more responsibilities. The hardest part of the job was telling a customer 'no' after someone else had already told them 'yes'. The job had great benefits, and by making people smile made it even more rewarding.

Working at Cadillac Fairview is rewarding because every day is different. When you look back over the last quarter it is really impressive what gets accomplished. The team is close knit and works hard, but have a lot of fun regardless of workload. People are the main reason for the culture being what it is.
