    Former Employee - Maintenance Supervisor in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Essex Property Trust full-time for more than 3 years


    Cares for Employees, good work/life balance, pay is good for industry, benefits are good. If you are in maintenance they try to work around needs you may have within the on-call schedule.


    No employee stock purchase program, other than that no real complaints about the company. They may be a little slow to promote some people, while others get promoted more quickly with similar experience and skill levels.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Essex Property Trust in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the position, and was interviewed by a fill-in manager. She sent over recommendations to the property where I would be working and I had a final interview there. Was baited and switched about how much commission I would be making for lease renewals.
    If you have had customer service experience, you are in like Flynn.
