Administrator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 January 2019
It is a good company for those willing to work hard. If you want an easy job this is not the place for you. To make the best of it have an open mind and be flexible. Upper management has the best intentions at heart.
N/A (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 6 February 2019
I have never worked for a better group of people. I have always felt part of a larger team, and have had nothing but opportunity for advancement. The company delivers on their promises, and is always ready to ask for input. I am a long term employee and don't see myself with a future anywhere else.
I've had such a supportive team and management since the beginning! I feel comfortable speaking with my leader, and asking support from my team if I need it. I also feel very appreciated and recognized for the work that I put it.
There are plenty of opportunities for learning and development for those that make the effort and seize them.
Values are important to me in a workplace, and there are many different ways that the company recognizes team members at all levels when they live these values and go the extra mile.
I am grateful I made the move to join Timbercreek!
It was a great learning experience, always had opportunity to develop my skills
Maintenance associate (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 1 February 2019
Working for Timbercreek Communities was a fun and great experience. I was awarded opportunities to learn new skills and to also grow my own skills. The staff were great and very fun to work with. The hours and job itself worked around my schedule as a single father. I really enjoyed working for them
Painter (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 21 November 2018
They don't pay enough for experienced painters.... To many turn overs with painters to the point that there desperate and just hire anyone. Sad really cause no one in hamilton and surrounding areas would never consider working there.
Leasing and Administration Specialist (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 21 November 2018
Long hours and really low pay considering you’re doing your job and the property manager’s. You can be so busy from the time you get in until you leave and it can be hard to get a break but that’s the nature of the job. Training was good I learned a lot. Met some really great people!
It’s really tough to move around in there because favouritism is pretty bad. The office gossip and politics is like nothing I have ever seen. If you aren’t liked it’s a tough place to be and you won’t last long.
I wouldn’t recommend this place. There are way better companies out there.
Building Manager (Former Employee) – London, ON – 21 October 2018
A typical day at Timbercreek was making sure the common areas were cleaned before 8am. I would then go thought the work orders for the day and meet up with prospective residents and vendors. I would also order stock needed for the buildings and contact vendors for specific issues I could not repair. in the afternoon I would do the administrative work and look over the Arrears in the building and knock on doors. at the end of the day I would make sure the lobby was cleaned again and sometime finish up the unit turn cleaning or repairs as needed.
The hardest part of the job was the long days and being on call 24/7
the best part of the job was the resident interactions.
Administrator Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 September 2018
Company is based on favoritism. No room for growth, and if there is it’s VERY little room. Head office in Toronto is very disorganized and staff are rude, especially those “higher up”. Great benefits is all Timbercreek has to offer. I’ve seen so many people leave on their own in different areas of Ontario and positions.
Leasing Agent (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 September 2018
Typical day starts with emailing the prospects for renting,rerunning their calls,book appointments for showing's. Learned time management better customer relations,rental laws, executing rental lease, customer retaining and team management.
Most enjoyably part working with Timbercreek is achieving targets and earning 99% incentives and commission.
Building Administrator (Former Employee) – London, ON – 6 August 2018
Came to Timbercreek as a Temp and wanted full time Permanent Position. Received it quickly but everything that was promised like training (3 weeks) was only 4 days.
They treat you poorly as a Temp everything is on a need to know basis. This doesn’t change when you become permanent staff.
I came from 45 successful years of Nursing to a real mess hoping I could get things changed. They ignored reguests for needs around the office. Although I have a strong work ethic and excellent time management skills they all go for nothing if there is no training
They love to dump more and more responsibilities on you but fail to show you how to become competent in your role.
They love to have you take responsibility for everything not done but fail to train you so as you can take responsibility
I feel imbaressed to put this company on my resume but the skills I learned I earned.
Money was not important because of my pension but I found the 9 hour days with no lunch break difficult to balance exercise, appointments etc because it’s 9-6 or 10-7pm
Definitely do not recommend this job for anyone unless it is divinely appointed.
A Nightmare to say the least
You get a chance to work Permanent Full Time right away
When you come to your senses you realize “what the heck happened”
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 27 July 2018
Timbercreek Needs to review there management team and find people who HONESTLY want to create great teams and the potential for success might come around. They want to constantly tear there team down and point fingers at front line staff. No appreciation for front line staff who take the brunt of the concerns from residents about the lack of maintenance and manager engagement. And if you question there ignorance your told to MIND YOUR BUISNESS.
Leasing Agent (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 20 July 2018
The worst management team to work for! They are only there for themselves and do not support anybody else whatsoever! There is a reason they go through so many staff. If you like to work for a place where the manager is unskilled at managing staff, throws you under the bus every chance they get, keeps piling more and more work on you and holds you accountable for everything that is out of your control...then Timbercreek Communities is definitely the place for you.
LEASING & ADMINISTRATIVE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 10 July 2018
I workwd worked 50- 70 hrs a week and cared about my job and the residents only to be treated extremely poorly by a new manager. This manager continuously was on my case for tedious nonsense all while they watched movies because they were bored. Very high stress job and they do not hire enough people all around to maintain the properties properly.
Live-in Caregiver (Current Employee) – Ontario – 1 June 2018

Building Administrator (Former Employee) – London, ON – 30 May 2018
Mismanaged Organization - Head Office has no clue what is happening in their buildings. London/Kitchener District has gone through staff like they are candy. Files are a mess, no organization or support, staff are not trained. Continue to have new staff brought in through agencies. Their are a few long term employees living on site but their have no life and eventually their usefullness will not be required . Tenants are not satisfied, long term ones seem to just make due, students rentals feel sorry for them - they are there to learn and dealing with inexperience and too many changes they get frustrated just as do the long term tenants. Coorporate office needs to wake up and see that they have Regional Managers and District Managers that probably have knowledge but have lost grip of their portfolios and just flying by the seats of the pants at times
In my experience with this company was overall okay I gave more than I received Not a loyal company and they will feed you to the wolves the minutes they get a chance The management expects way too much and there is never any funds to support it , they want you to give up your weekends and your time without any recognition They simply don't appreciate anyone! !!
I couldnt have said it any better.. but you did sugar it up a little.
Employee (Current Employee) – Central Ontario – 28 February 2018
Lots of training and learning sessions available. Salary, quarterly bonus, yearly bonuses, and benefits are really good. The manager is always available to assist any time of day/night. She will do whatever she can to help the team. You are encouraged to take your personal time off and not be at work.
staff, managers, residents, pay
need more jobs available to move up in the company
Painter (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 18 February 2018
This was my first job. It was really fun and good experience. The supervisors were friendly, as well as other staff members in the building. The wage was more than expected. Overall really good place for teenager who are looking for their first job.
