    I worked at Minto Group full-time

    Pros

    Accounting is pretty nice. Cleaning staff is nice to tenants

    Cons

    Staff stealing from tenants accounts and tenants have to pay it back. Transparency sucks between tenants and management in the building Not family oriented when it comes to low income or special needs families

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to tenants about renovating their apartment to get them out, but really aren't renovating it.

      Advice to Management

      Train your employees to be leaders and not followers. Sure some wont be leaders but always train to lead, not to follow. To many times i have been told by a former employee we do it like this because this is how luc told us. Luc likes it like this. well what the hell are you going to do when luc leaves ahah.
