What is it like working as a Building Superintendent?
Building Superintendent in Toronto:
"Hard Work and Low Pay With Constant Customer Service Issues."
Pros: You are able to work from home, no long distance driving and there is flexibility in when you can do the jobs that are assigned to you. If you enjoy talking to people and making friends this job can be for you but the tenants usually do this to get perks from you so do not be so trusting.
Cons: The job is a stressful position, a lot of people complaining, long hours of work if you do not manage your time properly. Dirty environment a lot of cleaning and having to deal with repairs and trouble shooting. Your phone does not stop ringing sometimes at all hours of day or night you can get a call. You get one day off for one week and then 2 days off for the following week and you can be on call 24 hours a day even after your normal shift ends. Low annual salary if you are inexperienced, or work in a residential environment versus a condo setting. Always get in writing when a tenant wants you to enter their apartment why they want you there and what you are there to do and they are giving you permission to enter. Otherwise you can end up in court with them claiming you stole something.
