      Challenging work, good pay and lots of growth opportunities


      Not great work life balance and have 12+ hour days are a norm with average being worse.

        The people, the training, teamwork, deal exposure, and the quality of how the whole business is unlike anything else.


        People are very smart and so it's sometimes hard to cope. The work-life balance can also get quite intense and sometimes you are required to work on the weekends.

      Interview Tips

      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!
