    I have been working at American Homes 4 Rent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The fact that it is a new company that is growing rapidly is one of the reasons I love working here. You can actually SEE the value you are adding. The culture is casual, open, and you really have a chance to get to know everyone (at least working in the Agoura office). Benefits (health, time off, etc) are very competitive, as well as the comp structure. I'm excited to see where this company goes, and I look forward to being a part of it.

    Cons

    I wouldn't call it Cons necessarily, more like challenges in working here. It's all in how you look at it. I enjoy the fast-pace, high volume atmosphere. Processes aren't in place where they need to be, but that's why I'm working here - to PUT them in place! This environment may not be for everyone, but those who can manage their time, prioritize well, enjoy the start-up feel, and can handle change, will love it here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate with employees and keep them in the loop. We love hearing about what's going on with the company.

    I worked at American Homes 4 Rent full-time

    Pros

    The base pay is decent, and there are a lot of great people that make it easier to get by each day.

    Cons

    The only way to advance in the company is by knowing someone. If you are looking to establish yourself within a company this is not the place to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some career steps for your employees or the turnaround rate will continue to grow.

    I have been working at American Homes 4 Rent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule sometimes, great coworkers.

    Cons

    Elite rich guys running company only think of themselves. They hire minimum-wage workers to run everything about the company that the rest the employees depend on. Local management takes care of their own race and religion while burying everyone else. Extremely burdensome workload. No complaints are heard. HR complaints are not anonymous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to criticism and ideas. Just because we barely feed our families doesn't mean we're stupid.

    I worked at American Homes 4 Rent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Business casual attire; denim, sandals, tanks, and tees. (hardly business casual)

    Cons

    The staff is poorly trained and management has no clue what they are doing. Supervisors confide and vent to own employees about other employees and coworkers. No specific training manual. Employees get in trouble for asking too many questions. Employees are expected to complete months of work within a days time. Employees let go when they bring their issues to management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervisors need real training. Employee time clocks would be helpful so employees are not accused of arriving late to work. There needs to be a clear policy about nepotism, fraternizing with employees, and keeping information about other employees confidential.

    Terrible management

    I have been working at American Homes 4 Rent

    Pros

    Casual dress work environment and that's about it.

    Cons

    Terrible management. They seem to think they know what they are talking about when in fact they don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the management is under one roof and yet they still can't communicate with one another and get everyone on the same page. Seems to be a bit unprofessional. Stop trying to promote the young and pretty. They are clueless and their ideas don't work. They are only getting inflated heads and no one appreciates it. It's actually quite laughable. They think they are important but really it's just management looking at your you know what.

    I worked at American Homes 4 Rent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Casual environment....jeans, snickers, head phones, flip flops.

    Cons

    Bad management, very unorganized, no communication. Managers instead of talking to their employees they prefer to hear it, from other people that have nothing to do with that department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire people with management skills & experience and an education. Hiring people just because you know them does not mean they qualify for the management position....just saying. Having a manager tell you more then once in a week, if you don't do your job we will find someone else to do it....reflects no job security and a very hostile environment. I feel very sad for the people still working there.

    Consider ALL employees not just the "chosen few" executives who get all the perks and consideration.

    Pros

    Experience on what NOT to do in Property Management.

    Cons

    No Support for Management or Staff, Serious lack of communication, no resolution guidance , poor training, poor leadership, poor quality of service. Instead, upper management seeks knowledge from employees on how to handle a situation instead of giving property guidance and delegation. upper management lacks respect for employees .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your good management staff instead of letting them walk or get rid of them. They come from years of Real Estate knowledge and experience and stop replacing them with "favored suggestions" from big wigs you rub shoulders with or family members . This will help your company in quality of customer service and overall negative ratings. (which speaks for itself).
