What is it like working as a Facilities Supervisor?
Facilities Supervisor in Cambridge:
"Its challenging, but I absolutely love it!"
Pros: Its always different! You learn tons! Absolutely honestly say I look forward to work, I love it! Your not really ever doing the same thing twice. Every project has its own instructions.
Cons: Always waiting on contractors which means deadlines are never met. Lack of communication and support from supervisors to employees. If supervisors supported us, our new building would hardly age. Since we do not have the support, we waste a lot of time and money on stupid things. Ex. Colour coded cloths.
Facilities Supervisor in British Columbia:
Pros: Early off from work, most weekends off.
Cons: Very stressful job. Responsibility of all departments, staffing, training, cooking, administration, resident relations. Have not seen owner in 5 months, only his emails. Feel that there is little or no appreciation of employees. Coaching limited, I only see the manager 3 hours per week.
