Overall Good Company
Working for Killam was a good learning experience for me. Most of the staff at Head Office are great, but there is not alot of training or support for anyone in the West. Keep in mind that the head office is in Halifax, NS and they are just starting to branch out west with locations in Edmonton and Calgary. I did learn alot from them but did leave due to conflict with the director. I did not feel that my voice was being heard and that I had no where to turn to so that it could be resolved. As to be honest I did not know who I could trust. So I felt that the best thing I could do for my team was to leave my position so that they would not be affected. Overall my experience was good but as a property manager you have no work life balance and it can be a real struggle when you feel that you have no support from head office or HR to back you up. I would work for them again but I would make sure that there were some very strong ground rules in place before starting.

Great people and culture.
Killam is a growing company with lots of opportunity. They have a great culture and I would recommend working there. The HR is highly motivated to ensure a great workplace.

Productive and Friendly Workplace
I have been with Killam a short time but I have been welcomed by every single staff member I have been in contact with. When I expressed my desire to work towards advancing a career with Killam, I was given full attention plus a great interim opportunity!
Pros
Great hours - unexpected bonuses - friendly staff
Cons
None so far

Stay away! Worst place to work for! Run & don't look back!
The work never ends and you are expected to be available at all times whether you're ill or on holidays. They will praise you if things go well but make it very clear to all staff who are the under performers. They are very quick to throw you under the bus if there is a problem. There is no support and honesty between upper management and staff. HR and upper management are corrupt and unethical. If you want to throw away your personal life and your health, this is the place for you.

This interview might not be helpful, I only helped my brother when he worked there
Maybe it'd be better to interview someone else on this, but I didn't really work there. I helped my brother but that's about all that I ended up doing.

Worst place I’ve ever worked
They let us go 2 weeks before our six month review which was also 2 weeks before Christmas this was an extreme shock to the system. The reasoning from the person who hired us said because we didn’t eat with them at a small cramped gathering at one of the buildings your not team players. Not once were we made to feel comfortable or even offered any training for the things I was responsible for.
Pros
Can’t think of a single one
Cons
Just make the right decision before applying

Great company overall
Dealing with Tenants daily was enjoyable. I learned that if you are nice to people, they will change their attitude also. Management didn't play the part I assumed they would play and I was left with situations that were not handle properly. The workplace I was in was fun. It was great to see other employees enjoying their work.
Pros
Dealing with people.
Cons
Stronger management

Pay isn't worth the trouble
Ok to get foot in the door but pay isn't worth what they expect of you. They want top of the line performance while paying the bare minimum. Head office seems appreciative of the work put in but generally unaware of how much you're actually being asked to do unless you work in Halifax. great place to work if you're in upper management but lower wage staff is worked to the bone for scraps

Great Buildings but i had mold growing in almost every unit
Staff were Great but no communication from upper management. i would hear this from all tenants. As a Resident manager my utmost attention was given to a safe building and made sure all procedures and regulations were up to date at all times, I am afraid that i do not have anything good to say on my upper management as it seemed to be more important to have lunch office days than to take care of incoming concerns,

Negative environment
Tenants are relatively rude and demanding no matter how much time you spend attending to their needs which extend beyond a normal parameters.
Criminal activity is high in their buildings!

Wonderful Organization
Working for this organization has been great. Everyday I learn something new and they care about their employees very much. Came from a totally different industry and feel very valued working here. Am listened to and allowed to share ideas and information - based on my experience.

Management - Senior and immediate are very approachable and they take a team approach.

Terribly run and never organized
Ran maintenance for them and always had impossible tasks. Between the cheapness and the lack of communication and even cutting corners cause “we don’t live there” would never live in an apartment run by them and will never work for them again.
Pros
Didn’t have to wear a company shirt which saved from embarrassment
Cons
99% of the job

Great career to build on.
What other job is there that will give you a free apartment, may be amazing or not so great depending on the area, while paying you a decent amount? Staff is nice, no place is close to perfect, but find the lazy ones don't bug you while the nice ones help out a lot, so works out well.
Pros
Live where you work, help provided and easy to reach and fast to respond.
Cons
Work where you live, some crazy tenants.
