Great workplace with a family minded community
Cleaner (Current Employee) –  Lethbridge, AB6 January 2019
I enjoy my work family, there was frequent change in management which made it difficult when it came to company policies and procedures. Other employees had your back when it came to tenant concerns and everyone helps out everyone else.
Pros
great work culture
Cons
frequent management change

its okay if this is what you want to do.
Building Manager (Current Employee) –  London, ON7 December 2018
Its a good company if this is the work you want to do for the rest of your life. But if your looking to move up the ladder dont. there is no encouragement from management to select higher positions. they choose who they want in.

One of the worst places I have and will ever work
Building Manager (Former Employee) –  London, ON21 November 2018
I was with Northview for seven months. With the previous company for almost four years. When Northview took over the whole site went to garbage. Less pay, no bonus, management was the worst. People running the site were rude. Treats the employees like garbage. Expects you to jump, even if you're in the middle of something. We were told "no matter what we have to answer the phone, even if we're out of breath". Never gives any "thank you's" for working hard or saving them money doing something you shouldn't be doing. They take most responsibilities away from you so they don't have to pay you much money. No raise within the first year and probably not after that either. The property manager is barely ever there. The garbage bin wheels are always broken. As of right now the whole garbage area is full of broken bins. Site is understaffed and they don't care to hire anyone. A building has been out of a building manager for almost a year. Only three sets of legit building managers for a site with 6 buildings. The amount of work is not worth the garbage pay. I would not recommend working or living anywhere this company is. Only good thing is free rent and meeting nice people. You'll get in trouble more for not knowing things then you'll get praised for a good job. They expect you to know things without even training you..
Pros
Meet nice tenants, free rent
Cons
Management, garbage pay, no bonuses, no appreciation, couple only. Worst company to work for

Company is unorganized and management continuously tries to take advantage of it workers and clients.
employee (Former Employee) –  Alberta16 September 2018
Terrible company who tries to take advantage of poor families needing a place to live. Work conditions are poor with employees having to work extra hours without compensation is expected !

There are many better companies to work for!!!

Only a matter of time until the public/ investors find out how this company is really run!!!
Cons
Long Hours, Poor Management with no vision !!!

Office Administrator (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON25 August 2018
I worked with the management of this company for many years. Through the years the changes were horrible and included the loss of a manager that was there to support . This made for myself and several others to re-locate.
Pros
no weekends
Cons
no work life balance on weekdays

Focused effort on fun engagement activivities, despite isolated ELT.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 August 2018
There are concerted efforts to include recreation and occasional fun/team building activities that include all staff members from the head office location. However, key members of the Executive Leadership Team remains detached from team-members and staff throughout head office location. Often times so out of touch, that they are unaware of mid-level management practices and activities in departmental level. Some members of ELT are unable to operate (log-in or otherwise) the company database and tracking software and are hard-pressed to legitimize their day to day work efforts in line with their remuneration levels. The company has grown in great strides over recent years, and that has gone to key leadership member's heads, at the expense of truly effectual team members' efforts.
Pros
team member and social activities.
Cons
Unappreciative leadership members. Leadership members detached from "lower" levels of departments.

Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB5 February 2018
Northview is an okay company to work for, they don't really recognize employees, upper management doesn't event know who you are.
There is no team building, and Management doesn't take you seriously.
Pros
Nice Team

Maintenance Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB14 January 2018
A great company only negative is for new hires who are unfamiliar with property management you are pretty much thrown in to sink or swim not a huge amount of support from upper management

Leasing Manager (Former Employee) –  Iqaluit, NU28 September 2017
Most of the employees are great, but the lack of support from Management causes unnecessary riffs. There is very little on the job training and most new hires are left to sink or swim. The compensation package looks good on paper but the housing market amounts are skewed to make it look like you are being paid more than you really are. Overall it is a lot of work for little benefit. The company only provides 3 paid sick days a year, living in the north with a Family and no support system this can be very stressful when children get sick and you can't be at work.

The Company is more worried about the bottom line than it's employees.
Pros
subsidized rent in an inflated market
Cons
on call 24/7 with no extra pay or benefits for doing so

It was great
Regional Manager (Former Employee) –  Bonnyville, AB13 January 2017
The company as a whole is excellent to work for and with. They do not provide adequate training though and the support from the Head Office is not there.

I loved my job, but the pay compared to the hours you are expected to put in are not an even match. Worked for the company 5 years and received 3 raises, and only because I went into another position.
