    GROW with Us: Prometheus' Top 3 Recruiting Trends of 2017

    If you had been following Prometheus in 2017, you may have noticed that it was a busy year for the Prometheans on our recruiting team. In addition to

  • We make learning look good! In the spirit of Simplicity, a Prometheus goal for 2017, the L&D team redesigned its online learning portal (GROW) to give a fresh and focused look to its rich catalog of learning content, containing popular courses like leadership and personal development. Speaking of fresh looks, our Prometheans who most utilized the new online learning portal were awarded their own personalized “GROW” jackets as a reward for taking their learning and development into their own hands. Congratulations to Prometheans like Ben Lei (our Neighbor Service Tech 3 at The Lakes) for championing his growth with us!

Prometheus Real Estate Group – Why Work For Us?

Welcome Home to Our Neighborhoods.

Prometheans are here to revolutionize the apartment industry, and we have over 500 of them working at Prometheus. Most of those you'll find in our Neighborhoods leasing apartments, meeting with Neighbors, completing service requests, monitoring financials, and doing so much more. Prometheans take great pride in their Neighborhoods and live our purpose to make our Neighbors feel part of the Prometheus family and truly at HOME in the apartment experience.

That's why we hire leaders and achievers. People who we believe will thrive within our dynamic, entrepreneurial, creative culture. People who challenge convention, change perspectives and keep us ahead. We believe the employment relationship is a two way street. Yes, we want you to earn a fair day’s pay for the work you do, but more importantly, we want you to say “I AM HOME” when it comes to your career.


In an industry that’s all about home, we take pride in the fact that people are at the core of our business strategy. By taking caring of our Prometheans we believe they will take better care of the Neighbors who call Prometheus HOME. That’s why in 2016, Prometheus decided to reinvest into its people by paying 100% of healthcare premiums for all Prometheans and their families. It’s something that less than 1% of large employers do, and something that no other company in our industry does.

Yes, this means that in 2016, Prometheus will pay 100% of the cost of your premiums for Medical, Dental and Vision. The deduction that you are familiar with coming off of your check every two weeks will not be there!


We believe in giving back to the neighborhoods we call home. Our Promethean Outreach and Community Help program (POrCH) gives employees the opportunity to volunteer in our neighborhoods while on the clock. On average, over 200 Prometheans are volunteering on any given day.

Prometheus also donates a subsantial portion of our profits to non-profit foundations focused on education, the arts and health care. These programs ensure that we're active members of the neighborhoods we call home. And it's just what good neighbors do.

Learn About POrCH



Let no great work, large or small, go unrecognized. Our recognition program, TORCH, is based on our values, mission and cultural traits. We want to recognize folks for protecting our reputation and for doing something that creates excellence—whether it’s a service moment, taking a risk, or coming up with a great idea that saves the company money or creates a better life for Prometheans or our Neighbors. A “thank you” is always appreciated, but when somebody really goes above and beyond, sometimes a simple thank you doesn’t feel like enough. TORCH lets us share our appreciation for one another in big and small ways. Every Promethean is eligible and encouraged to nominate (and of course receive). 

Prometheus wants to be there from the first step when you and your family take on the challenge of higher education. SCHOLARS is how Prometheus invests in yesterday, today, and tomorrow when it comes to the education and the growth of both our Prometheans and their family. With our loan repayment (yesterday) and tuition reimbursement (today) programs for our Prometheans, and our scholarship program (tomorrow)  for their dependents, we strive to help those who seek knowledge achieve great accomplishments.

    I have been working at Prometheus Real Estate Group full-time (Less than a year)


    Prometheus is a wonderful place to work! Prometheus promises "Home at Work" and we deliver!

    It's a special environment whether you work at one of our many neighborhoods or in Home Office. There is a laid back vibe and a care for all Prometheans. When I say care, I actually mean it! The people around you truly want the best for you and that's a cool feeling to have at your workplace!

    Most Prometheus job opportunities are filled by internal promotions or referrals. We develop and grow our talent! There are so many opportunities out there for Prometheans, especially if you live in the Bay Area where we are are the largest private owner of multifamily homes! We're growing too... look out for new neighborhoods coming your way.

    We don't try to be like everyone else! We want to be different. We want to be revolutionary! Come view one of our neighborhoods and you'll see that it's not a typical leasing experience.

    We give back to the communities we operate in too! Our POrCH program allows Prometheans to volunteer time and get involved. We back it up with our pocketbooks too. Prometheus donates a large amount of money every year to worthy causes.

    If you want to work somewhere cold, bottom-line obsessed, then you'll find plenty of companies out there. If you want lots of good vibes, smiles, and warm, fuzzy feelings that sustain you while you work hard with other passionate people, then you're looking at the right company! Prometheus is where it's at! Come on home!


    Prometheus takes all reviews seriously and tries to tackle anything that comes up as a con. That makes it hard to find something that hasn't already been addressed or in process to be addressed. All that said, Prometheans tend to earn a little less then the market warrants for their skillset, talents, and personality. We make up for it in 100% paid benefits and culture but it would be nice to see us make some changes around pay/bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    You're amazing! Keep listening and allowing us to speak up... even with the craziest of ideas. Thank you!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prometheus Real Estate Group (New York, NY) in December 2015.


    The recruitment process was absolutely seamless due, in no small part, to my recruiter, Maria Torres. Maria is one of many awesome Prometheans you'll meet in just a short period of time at Prometheus. Her limitless knowledge of the company and undying positivity were, in my experience, incomparable. Maria never 'oversaw' the hiring process. Instead, it felt as though we worked hand-in-hand and through a collaborative effort we achieved a common goal. The process was effortless and everyone seemed excited which, in turn, made me excited.
