Pest Management Associate (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 15 October 2017
Everyday is a great day at work. The jobs at task are exactly what would be expected for the position. Everyone helps every, and management is the best I have worked for in a very long time. I'm sad to be leaving such amazing people on October 31st 2017.
To Many Job Titles To List (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 September 2017
My typical day meant doing tasks that had nothing to do wit my job title. Over worked and under paid. When a team member would leave the team they would simply give there tasks to someone else without an raise for taking on the new work load. As you can imagine after awhile the work adds up to where the amount of work you need to get done doesn't even add up to what your approved to work in a month. Most management there treats you like your nothing and easily replaced. When most magament doesn't even know what your job intails because they are also extermly over worked, but they get the correct pay, so they don't care about you. When requested a raise after 2 years at the company and lots of extra work load you basically get laughed at. This is an ok company if you want to stay at the bottom, as soon as you get into something other than the call center can you expect your life to be hard and not worth the stress and you will find yourself saying "I don't get paid enough for this"
Daily problems include dealing with tenants that you agree with but have to defend the company and the cash flow issue the company has.You will find yourself frustrated talking to anyone in management.
The only good thing is that most co-workers act like friends and would agree with this statement, the only mistake I made was staying there as long as i did before I realized this was the toxic in my life.
Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Main office – 16 August 2017
Customer service is always difficult, however working here made everything a lot easier. Everyone worked as a team and supported one another as well as provided helpful instructions. Could not have asked for a better place to work.
People can be mean when dealing with customer service as they are often upset
Finance Department (Former Employee) – Calgary – 15 August 2017
Avenue Living has a great team that's focused on delivering results while having fun at the same time. Many of the team members have been with the company for several years, making it easy to ask for help when needed.
Co-workers are very friendly and pleasant to work with
If you're not comfortable being uncomfortable, this place isn't for you
Great place to learn and work, wonderful coworkers
Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 August 2017
I've had the pleasure of being a summer student in the call centre this year, and saying I've had a blast would be an understatement. The people in the office are so friendly and make coming to work that much easier on an early morning. The job itself can present some challenges, but the life skills being learned everyday make each day a new lesson. I've never had a job quite the same like the one I have right now, and I'll be sad to be leaving at the end of the summer. Amazing workplace and even more amazing people at Avenue Living!
Amazing and funny coworkers, learning how to deal with customers, awesome environment
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 August 2017
Some of the most dedicated, talented and intelligent people I've met work here - these individuals do the work of entire teams of people at comparable organizations and in my opinion they do it better. These people believe in and support the growth of the company. Whether its MA's who work tirelessly to ensure buildings are in good condition, directors who ensure that they are visiting their buildings regularly or the executives who stay late every evening these people truly believe in the company and want to participate in making something to be proud of.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 August 2017
For the past two years I have had the pleasure working with Avenue Living not only in my starting position as a Call Center agent but in our legal team an now our revenue management team. Promoting within the company is what has allowed me to be in the position I am in today and expand my experience and understanding not only within our company both the rental market, customer relations and customer service. I have learned so much in my travels from my co-workers and especially my mangers; their knowledge and ability to teach is what has influenced my career choice. Avenue Living has also given me extraordinary experience and allowed me to grow at my own pace while offering very competitive wages and a balanced work life. The support Avenue Living offers in all aspects of work and personal life is phenomenal! A ear to listen, a hand to help and a home away from home.
Southern Alberta Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 4 August 2017
I have worked with Avenue Living for just over two years. Started from Sales Agent to expanding my knowledge within the company and sharing my knowledge of over 11 years. Have watched the company take leaps and bounds from renovating properties and suites and turning them in to a ideal place residents love to call home. The work environment has been wonderful. If you dont know the answer, there is always someone willing to help you and give advise. With working together in a great team environment, it has been encouraging watching the company grow and the great staff we all get to work with.
Every day is different situations one deals with.
Some days are longer as more work some days then others, but these are made up for on the slower days.

Avenue living provides a lot of opportunity to grow with the company and expand your knowledge base. It's a great culture and has helped me grow in my career tremendously! There is never a dull or typical day, as you are continuously being challenged and asked to deliver new tasks. The management team was consistent, fair and great with communication. The employees are great to work with, are enthusiastic and kind. I am thankful for my days at avenue living, as I learned so much in the time I was there. I continue to encourage individuals to join avenue living, as the company continues to grow nationwide.
Great company culture, company events, job advancement

Definitely a great team to be a part of.
Resident Retention Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 June 2017
Worked there for about 6 weeks, was hired as a resident retention specialist. Previously worked for another rental company which avenue living's president picked my brain over the differences between the 2 companies. Buildings are all low class and overrun with gangs/drug dealers/prostitution rings. Was let go during my probation so got a poor reason for being let go. Would never recommend anyone work for or live with avenue living. Office administrator is a huge problem for the company.
