Do not work here! Run far away!
Resident Manager (Current Employee) –  Brant, ON17 October 2018
Honestly I was excited to start this job and then I started realizing how lousy this company is. They make it seem like they care but really they don’t.
This company is very emotionally and mentally abusive towards all staff members.
They hire lousy contractors with the lowest bid to do band aid fixes in all their buildings.
If a tenant complains about a repair and you schedule a contractor and then the contractor doesn’t show up, you get it from the tenant and head office never backs up their on site staff. They pay you 28,000$ as a Resident Manager or 9,600$ as a Assistant Resident Manager. You work 95.5 hours and get paid 15th and 30th of the month.
They don’t care if you get sick or have to take time off for more than 4 months they’ll just fire you or threaten too unless you are the favourite employee and kiss their butts
They want more rent from tenants but literally only cosmetically fix buildings. They have to keep their Tesla’s fuelled up you know. You’ll get farther in the company if you kiss butt to the big wigs.
They literally are the lowest paying property management company so STAY AWAY.
I don’t know how they ever got best employer cause they are the worse. They don’t give maternity leave so if you are young and want a family don’t work here.
If you want something you need to constantly ride your property managers butt because they lie all the time. They just want money and numbers. They shouldn’t even be in the property management industry. They charge ridiculous prices for rent for falling apart units unless it’s the newer buildings.

Here’s
  more... a tip for head office, if you don’t want such a high turnover rate from your employees maybe actually treat them like human beings and pay a decent wage. Can’t expect a top dollar work environment with less than minimum wage pay. You all sit at head office and think you have a hard job but the people who LITERALLY keep the money to flow in your pockets is not paid fairly.  less
Pros
Free Apartment
Cons
Stupid Company, Don’t know how to run anything properly, Emotionally and Mentally Abusive, Low pay

The worst place. Reddeer Alberta
Superintendent (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB11 September 2018
I worked for these jokers once. Absolutely terrible. No job security. The upper property Managers will lie to cover themselves, NOT the employees,and talk/lie to other sites. This company (skyline) is all about the money,and numbers. They dont care about the employees or people living in their places. They really dont have a clue on what is going on nor do they care. As long as the numbers are up. If the numbers are down ,you'll get worked to death(no O.T) Just to let you go. Beware of this company. They will move you in, and if they let you go, no notice and 7 days to move out. If you like being treated like a slave with bare pay. Then all the best. Boardwalk isnt even this bad as a company.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Every aspect of the job, and company

Social experiment
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON16 May 2018
Staff is super clicky like high school and if you go against the grain, you are singled out and ignored on social excursions. They do a good job at making the work environment fun, but the clickiness is intimidating.
** HR management should be restructured.
Reception expectations are unrealistic but manageable. Greet guests, answer BUSY phone lines. Scripted screened incoming calls for upper management. Not allowed to leave reception desk unattended but also expected to check all coffee machines in all areas of office, clean kitchen, monitor dishwashers, order and put out fruit in all lunch rooms on 2 floors, stock all office areas, open all mail which was piles high, distribute all mail in appropriate mail boxes, Purolator orders each day.
Cons
Rate of Pay, Work load, High turner over staff, social clicky.

Pros
Free ski and golf and preferred rates at any skyline hotel
Cons
High turn over of employees.

Look at you grow!
Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON13 June 2017
From a little student rental to one of Canada's fastest growing REITs in only 15 years, of course there have been growing pains for both employer and employees. However, Skyline's heart is in the correct place. A great company to grow with if you have a good attitude and a forgiving sense of humour.

terrible experience
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON2 February 2017
priorities changed all the time. pay was terrible. was harassed by upper management. all efforts to streamline or organize were shot down. all together very unorganized and toxic environment. only perk was the people who lived in the building. they were fantastic.

if you are interested in working for this company or another one as a resident manager/superintendent ask lots if questions and speek to others working for them first. never would have worked for this company if I had done that first.
Pros
tenants were super sweet
Cons
toxic and bad pay

Nice people, salaries not competitive

Really nice people, they care about you. Opportunities for advancement depend on your department/manager. Salaries are not at all competitive and generally not very negotiable. Beware HR.
Pros
Great culture
Cons
Salaries poor
