    Former Employee - Leasing Consultant in Los Angeles, CA

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


    Competitive pay if you know how to negotiate, They believe in promoting from within if you truly apply yourself, and upper management communicates as well as one could expect for such a large and productive company.


    Communication break down from on-site team to upper management from time to time and new programs (software or policies) aren't implemented very well. Also, they changed their time off policies which really seem unreasonable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frequent onsite visits and conversation with the onsite team (not just the property manager) really would benefit the company greatly.

    Positive Outlook

    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.
