    Pros

    The office environment is one of a kind. The people you work with make going to the office everyday extremely easy. American Homes cares about your future, even if it is not with them. They prepare you for more than just working for them. Last but not least, they love to promote/hire from within!

    Cons

    Love working at American Homes 4 Rent.

    Pros

    - Really like the people. People on team actually volunteer to help each other - Work is interesting (as interesting as accounting can be). The company and single family home industry is still relatively new, and AMH seems to be taking bold steps in growing and staking market cap position. Going from a property management company to figuring out how to construct their own properties is pretty ballsy and cool to see from ground up - Management is reasonable and seem like good people who really care about you personally and professionally - Work life balance is awesome. Get your work done, be a team player, and you'll be trusted with flexibility. REALLY appreciate this aspect of the department

    Cons

    - Medical benefits are pretty barebones - Some recent turn causing some OT hours/stress while we're hiring back up - More frequent business updates/communication from mgmt would be helpful. They seem to be working on this front, but can always have more improvement - No snacks/fancy coffee machines. Standard big rig coffee machine and vending machines

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

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing, just a nasty call center

    Cons

    I believe most of the managers are involved in not only unethical but also borderline criminal activity. We are instructed to stall repairs of more expensive items like HVAC by requesting unlimited number of quotes just so that the bosses can save few pennies. The customers end up being thrown into a horrible situation for weeks to come. Many employees are being abused and harassed if they are not in the secret circle of management favorites and best buddies. The elevated and beloved workers will get all perks like overtime and bonuses, also extra days off and vacation that other workers cannot access.. Also they do not need to work most of the time, The employees who do not have the royal favor of the executive "gods" are being threatened and intimidated due to fabricated reasons and I know for a fact that many of them perform overtime hours for free, after they have clocked out just because there is nobody else to take care of the emergencies and desperate renters, about whom the "management" could not care less. I have already spoken to an employment attorney and a labor department in my state about this discrimination. I will be leaving for a legitimate employer very soon but I will make sure that this slumlord's unethical and potentially criminal activity is made public. The executives are submitting tons of fake reviews with five stars in order to scam potential candidates to this horrible, horrible job. Please do your research and note that there are many class action lawsuits against this slumlord and also review comments about Ah4R on Facebook and Twitter. You will be horrified. I wish I could give them negative ratings.

    Pros

    Job security, decent hourly, monthly bonus, if you work hard the company rewards you

    Cons

    Coordinators work directly with agents and have majority of the same job duties, however the agents make roughly $35,000 more annually which can seem frustrating and unfair. The company slowly adds more job duties with no increased pay, work weekends and holidays, tend to micromanage even if you’re an efficient worker

    Pros

    American Homes 4 Rent shows they really care during these dark times of Covid-19. We were all transitioned to working from home. This was great because we can keep our jobs. HR and managers update us with tips on preventing the virus and with updates on our co-workers. Teledoc has been opened to everyone in the company even if they don't have the company's insurance. The call center has most of the agents working from home. Those of us working in the office started working from home about 4 weeks ago and the rest of the company followed a week later. They do really care for their employees. That is refreshing.

    Cons

    There are no cons to mention

    Great benefits, time off, they care about their people

    Cons

    There can be a lot of change due to it being a new company. If you aren't comfortable with changing directives, not a good place for you.
