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.

Sad to Leave
Resident Manager (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON11 July 2017
I was with Skyline as a Resident Manager for approximately 2 years; through good times and some very tough times.

Loved the people I worked with.

Advancement is difficult.

Salaries are not where they should be.

Management was very supportive and encouraging.
Pros
Fellow employees, staff events

Long hours, salaries and advancement opportunities

Overall job is good.

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
