    I worked at Westdale Asset Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Westdale is a wonderful company to work for. They are up to date on property management software and implement wonderful tools to help you remain successful in your position. They offer an amazing training program through Westdale University via online webinars, quizzes, etc. && they are strongly implemented & enforced to continue to improve your skills & knowledge. As we all know in Property Management, being site level your Property Manager is what makes or breaks your experience with the company. I was truly honored to be represented by a very skilled, honest, and outgoing Property Manager. She was always going out of her way to continue her education and always willing to help employees and promote team morale. I had full faith in her during my employment and was very grateful to have worked beside her! Not only was she a piece of my foundation but Westdale as well for my new career in Real Estate :) Highly recommended company!

    Cons

    I personally don't have any negative/cons to notate. I know from experience with a fellow leasing agent , Holidays are usually ran by "skeleton crew" and this can sometimes be strenuous && discouraging if you are the only leasing agent continuously working holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Continue motivating employee's :)

    I worked at Westdale Asset Management full-time

    Pros

    The customer service aspect was the best part!

    Cons

    I worked as full time leasing agent over 6 years. Promised promotion year after year. Then they hired a new manager who stole my commissions and wanted me to do her whole job, so i left!

    Advice to Management

    More thorough checks on hiring property managers. Promote within the company. Encourage employees to use open door policy to help support employees.

    Pros

    None awful company and awful people.

    Cons

    The worst company I have ever worked for. They are shady! They offer no training or support. You will be micromanaged and talked about behind your back. They under pay and under staff every property

    Advice to Management

    Do better with training and support. Update your software programs. Pay people what they are worth.

    I worked at Westdale Asset Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Timely pay, except after I left almost 2 weeks overdue. You get to learn some knowledge of leasing, the info you figure out for yourself

    Cons

    Angry assistant manager and a revolving door of Property Managers. Employees are alway complaining about the company which provides for a hostile work environment, even if you address this with management nothing is done about it. After I quit, they still havent given me my final check(nearly 2 weeks have passed since payday). This all backs up my decision to leave this company. I highly do not recommend working here, run in the other direction!

    Advice to Management

    Dont put people in power who like to steal your commissions and try not to place individuals in charge of training people who are not interested in training people. I wanted to work at this company to learn the on site portion of leasing but all I got was negativity and lack of compassion.

    I have been working at Westdale Asset Management part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to learn. Manageable amount of tasks. Great regionals and treats employees well. I like the order of chain of command and the way information is shared.

    Cons

    No benefits to part-time employees. I don't really feel like I can embrace that aspect since I am only part time.
