Worked there for 5 years. Good working environment with co-workers. Left for a different opportunity with another company. Barring a car accident, and an assault on the job, it was a great experience.

Just 5 minutes from home. Very alive place to work.

Although I am retired, I do miss my job. I always looked forward to the day knowing every day was different from the next as we were a satellite office. All clients came to our office to pay rent, questions of many types, such as rental increases, rent review question, maintenance requests or complaints. Also I dealt with tenant disputes, which I take pride in my ability to resolve most cases. If I felt the need for support I would either involve my co-worker or manager, depending of the seriousness of the dispute. The diversity of clients and their background taught me a great deal of cultures from all over the world. The difficult part of the job was managing your time lines such as completing rent calculations, renting units in a timely manner, and completing payroll data for the Superintendents. We conducted many evening meetings with tenant reps from each building on a monthly basis, which I enjoyed immensely. Knowing your client was a must to me

Pros

Time flexeblity

Cons

Can be very stressful, juggling

Rudderless ship

Horrible top down management that never listens to the front line staff who bear the brunt of the anger of tenants, leading to the staff becoming bitter and even more unhelpful. The whole model needs reworking. Why not more cooperative style housing instead of the bureaucratic nightmare that is the current reality?

Good place to work

TCHC has a good work-life balance, especially at the level under manager level. The pay and benefits are good as well. Colleagues are very kind and supportive. I recommend.

Selfserve - only good for management (managers and their families and friends)

Not a typical place on earth, the least and corrupted work place I have ever seen. inconsistency in pay, run by family and friends. Management rob in many ways with the help of vendors, suppliers etc. Could not be proven, perfectly documented , auditors never analyze anything in details maybe they are also supporting and receiving kick backs. most of the managers in FM do not have any formal education.

Not a great place to start your career but good people

Lots of bureaucracy and red tape to get vendors paid. I only enjoyed the company for the people and the fact that it wasn't located south of Bloor, sometimes we beat the rush by leaving early.

Relaxed work environment if you get along with your coworkers

It is really hit or miss depending on your coworkers and location you are assigned to. If you care about the people you're working with sometimes the short comings from the company and funding for the programs can get discouraging.

growth and benefits

great place for benefits for a family and long term growth. Working with tenants can be difficult but not impossible. once you understand that they are people and should be treated with respect then you will have no issues working here.

Productive work site

The job would start in the morning with kids coming in with huge smiles and activities planning throughout the whole day. These activites would be so much as to go to the park, gym, or trips. Overall the experience for working at Toronto Community Housing is enjoyable.
