      Great mentors and training for new employees looking to get into property management. Equity's structure is unbeatable and their support/response to escalated issues is excellent.


      Sometimes what upper management says does not match what they tell their sales teams in regards to renewals and sales. It creates a lot of extra work if leasing consultants could be more straight-forward and provide more transparency to residents. Compensation and bonus/commission structure could be higher to compete with other companies. A lot of private companies steal away great employees.


      Thank you for reaching out to share your constructive feedback! It’s great to hear your positive endorsement of our structured training programs as well as internal resources. We also appreciate the thoughtful way you described the dynamics of on-site empowerment. We certainly strive to make our employees feel empowered, but your comments are a reminder that we still have an opportunity to improve. Please know that our leaders take these reviews seriously, along with the results of any employee surveys, and this is a frequent topic of conversation for us. We commit to continuing the conversation, and we thank you again for the feedback and wish you the best!

        Excellent healthcare benefits. Vacation, personal and sick days accrue very quickly, but good luck being allowed to take them.


        If you enjoy an ever increasing work load full of unrealistic and impossible expectations, Equity Residential is the place for you. Sketchy commission structure and no work/ life balance included. There is an serious disconnect between upper management and onsite employees.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Johnson & Johnson

      At the end of the interview, the interviewer said “HR will be in contact with you very soon”. Does this mean I got the job since it’s HR and not the recruiter or am I overthinking this? Any tips to ease post late stage interview anxieties?


      Process Coordinator

      I have an in-person interview for a job I applied for earlier this summer and was in the final 2. They went with an internal candidate that time. I had 3 interviews the first time, but none in-person. This is the first interview this time. Is that a really good sign? Or should I not read into it? Also, I haven't had a professional in-person interview for 7 years, what do I wear? (female, 40's)


      Senior Resource Manager

      I'm currently interviewing for manager and senior manager positions within people operations, what are some questions you like to ask during interviews with directors and VPs?
