Always something different but the same in a way. Clean, fix, paint, install. Bringing life back into suites. If you are the strong worker, be prepared to do 80% of the work will your partner is slow.... very very slow. Overall good company to work for though, down side the wear & tear on your vechile


Become a professional painter

Toxic work environment with unstable upper management

Working for ALC is somehow worse than living with them. You will enjoy your coworkers but anybody above you will treat you like garbage. It is toxic and built upon the idea that everybody is disposable, while they simultaneously beg for new workers as they 'can not figure out why people don't want to work here'


Drive your own vehicle


Utter lack of job security

Managers treating their employees bias and unfair

Unfair treatment on the employees by the property managers. Stressful when you are on call and they blame the lower ranks if something bad happens and they take all the credits when good outcomes are achieved.

Fun environment-Good benefits and salary

It has been a good experience overall, will be good if process for the departments get written down so when there are new hires they can reference to something and not be in the guess play

Would give all negative 10 stars if I could!

Management has no clue. They don't care about the staff it's all about the almighty dollar. And the policy and procedures change constantly so you never really know what your micromanaging superior expects. This company is one of the shadiest I have ever been unlucky enough to work for. So much of what they expect of you WILL Not sit well with your moral compass if you have any morals yourself.And what ever you do... don't stand up for what is right, for yourself because the minute you do they make it their mission to make your life so miserable you leave or they not pick and fire you for so many ridiculous reasons.... like not answering the phone when you are dealing with a tenant in person at the time!!!Do yourself a favour and save yourself the stress and stay far far away!!!

Great place to work at!

Avenue Living is a great place to work at. The team is very supportive. I loved the culture of the company. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking to work in real estate.

Stressful and constant movement

If your not use to multitasking this job wouldn’t suit you! Timelines hard to accomplish because your always be moved to different tasks throughout the day! Not a relaxed organization to work for!




Not enough supplies

Relatively good pay, bad company practices

The job was easy, my coworkers and supervisors were pretty nice for most part but you often get calls from people you are unable to help. Bad company practices make this position difficult

Over worked and underpaid

Avenue Living Communities is not a good place to work. You are used, abused and under paid for the beating you get. If you want to feel belittled, this would be a great place to work.

Not the best place to work

If you’re an empath this is not the place for you. If you care about people this is not the place for you. Avenue Living claims to be all about the customer\residents but they are not. They are basically slum lords with no regard for anyone. Like all big business it’s all about the money


Working from home n good benefits also fair pay

Don’t do it!

I worked for this company for 3 years, worked 10 hour days and sometimes 6 days a week. The bigger they got the less they cared about the residents. We were told that they are going in a “different direction” and by this they meant they will go back to being slum lords. Rotten counter tops are being left “until the sink falls through”, holes are being patched but the walls aren’t being painted, burn holes in carpets are being left, holes in doors are being left, rents are going higher but the quality is going lower. It is a shame, I used to love my job but would be ashamed to put my name on anything they have now.


Poor upper management

Horrible work/life balance, Company does NOT care about it's residents, they only care about money

When I first started this job, many warned "Avenue Living does not care about what happens in it's properties, they only care about money." Despite my strongest efforts to prove this perception wrong at the center (which I did), head office absolutely does not care about it's employees nor it's residents, to them everyone is replaceable. They do not care about the workload that is put upon you, they do not care about your safety (or the residents'). Despite my multiple complaints to my superiors, they were laughed at and not addressed. Upon going on stress leave, I was not even acknowledged or instructed on next steps by my manager, their manager, their managers manager, or HR. They disconnected my work phone and sent it back to head office a week into my stress leave (way before I even resigned); Talk about destroying the evidence... They also cancelled my benefits while I was on stress leave refusing to cover my EAP for counseling at their cost (you think your company would want you to get better so you can return to work, nope not them). In my time there, I have seen them fire entire departments at a time. Their turn over rate is horrendous. They only care about the numbers and will jeopardize people's safety to get them. Head office changes it's policies so often that they do not know their own procedures, I constantly presented their process documents to them and was told over and over again that I was wrong still. The amount of $ you get taxed does not make the wage worth the headaches that will come.


Don't do it


absolutely no work/life balance, high level of security risks that company does not support staff or residents

Great Team Leads

I had a great team lead who was ready to provide guidance. The first three month was probation, they evaluate your role on the number of bookings, call quality and call time. I enjoyed my time here and learnt a lot.

Employees are very well treated

Their pay and benefits are excellent. Management is supportive, and the owner sometimes acknowledges appreciation of employees' efforts by offering various incentives. The only reason I gave 3-star for life work balance is because this line of work requires occasional availability on weekends at month-end, and job is by nature very time sensitive. However, that goes for all rental businesses, not just Avenue Living.I would say my personal experience working for Avenue Living has been very positive .


Pay, benefits, some schedule flexibility


Very time sensitive work requirements, vacation time included in that requirement

Very disorganized and careless work environment

Very disorganized company & culture. The manager is just completely useless, who does not care about new employees in terms of proper training, help and feedback. They expect you to learn and know pretty much everything about the job with extremely little to no training or guidelines whatsoever. This company hires people fairly slow, but fire people in no time!!! Highly recommend people to stay away from toxic company like this!


Absolutely nothing!


Very poor management and structure! No proper training provided! Require to work overtime! Hard hire, but easy fire!! The list goes on (way too many to list).

Supportive culture and lots of opportunities for growth.

The company culture is really great. Everyone is very supportive of each other, down to earth, and can truly be themselves. Its fast growing company with a great opportunity to become very successful.


Work life balance and People.

Management is super selfish and non-appreciative

Worked here for 3 years. Their tenants always complain about the condition of the properties they own/manage. No job security, you are just a number for them.

Good money and benefits, poor work culture

Great compensation and benefits Great Co workers and tenants Good profit share Does provide gas allowance. Benefits include dental, vision and health care spending Senior Management is not qualified. Most senior leadership either family or friends CEO not involved but making good acquisitions. Growth is based on Who you know and nepotism Some of their buildings lack quality and have issues but off late they’ve been buying newer buildings People and culture work from home and barely meet on field employees. Employee engagement and morale quite low as a result. Over all - I feel great organization for investors to invest but lacks employee engagement, not so qualified management with only few exceptions, incredibly high payroll cost because of fat in the organization hierarchy. Management loves to take short cuts as well.
