    I have been working at Fairfield Residential full-time (More than 3 years)


    I have worked for Fairfield Residential for almost 4 years, with very few complaints, we have experienced much change over the past few years, but these changes have all strengthened our company and our future outlook. Workload for onsite employees has been reduced, streamlining operations implemented, large portfolios acquired, upper management has become more transparent about company happenings and technical advances have been made to improve time management for all. Salaries are in line, if not above industry standards, benefit cost and coverage is excellent, employee recognition events are outstanding and for a large company you don't feel like a number. Very little micromanagement. Fairfield hires good people and then lets them do their jobs!


    Work/Life balance can be a struggle (although some is self inflicted), the last two years has proven challenging with the sale of many properties and loss of some good employees, no orthodontic coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Please stay transparent as Fairfield continues to transition and grow, and never lose sight of the fact the boots on the ground are the ones that make it happen!

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fairfield Residential (San Jose, CA) in May 2017.


    We both asked really good questions of each other. The interviewer made me feel comfortable and she was very positive and had a upbeat attitude which made it easy for us to click. She asked the basics, why work for them, what my strengths were and weaknesses . How would I lead a team . Etc
