      Work life balance is amazing. You get 20 days vacation + 2 weeks off during Christmas + 4 personal days + unlimited sick days + random days when the university is closed and also summer Friday's. It is always 9-5 and hardly any overtime, and if there is you are paid time and a half for it. It is a stress-free environment and great if you have a family because of all the days off.


      It is a unionized environment, and because of that the employees are very lazy and lack motivation. They do only the minimum amount of work and never go above and beyond expectations. It is really frustrating. Many good people leave because of that, and the ones that are left behind are the ones who will stay in the same position for 10+ years and are ok with it. The salary is probably enough for the amount of work you do, however you can probably get more money if you work in corporate.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.


      Mobile Mortgage Specialist

      Looking to make a career change into HR. And would really like to work at Ontario Power Generation (OPG). Any insights or tips on the OPG interview process?


      Digital Communications

      I completed a writing test for a well-known agency and an curious to know what will the employer look for? I feel good about it though!
