    I worked at Foxtons full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    1. Can be good pay 2. Good learning Experience

    Cons

    1. Very long working hours , 8-8 monday to friday and every other saturday 9-4 ( you will often be pressured to come in an do a couple of viewings on your day off) 2. Company cars are a plus, However the fleet department are very un helpful- any work needs to be done through them and this can leave you without a car. also you will be required to often park in areas for viewings where you will get tickets- they will make...

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Foxtons full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Great training, a good place to get experience in real estate and then move on.

    Cons

    Long days, no extra holiday days considering essentially you work an additional 26 days a year for free if you work more surely you could give a bit more? It was probably the place to work as sales negotiator and make money when it was under John Hunt’s management, since going public I don’t think they have kept up with the times and struggle to see how they justify their fees with other competitors fast catching up....

    Treat your employees like people not like numbers and incentivise sales people you’d be amazed what you get back.

    I worked at Foxtons full-time

    Pros

    Company Incentives: Car, Phone and Laptop When you decide to hand in your notice: they just dismiss you on the day instead of working the week or however long they decide because in a directors exacts words ‘you won’t get me anything out of the notice anyway, so you should just leave.’ The training was very good, although it was very intense for one week, a lot to take in.

    Cons

    Here is an honest review. The first time I joined a Foxtons, it felt like a great and super exciting company to work for In terms of commission structure and company culture. As im an enthusiastic, positive person with high energy. This was probably one of the worst company’s to have joined. You could sense the bad energy and very nosey people around you. Got to front office, shadowed for a week and was learning all...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better, and allow your staff to have a voice. There is a lot of favouritism and no room for real recognition of progress. Just because you have a senior position, does not allow you to be intimidating to your staff. That is not leadership.

    I worked at Foxtons full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Some people were amazing. It sometimes can be a fun environment.

    Cons

    The hours were over 60-65hours a week with a shockingly low basic salary. You can make good money with commission but not worth the hours you put in. It worked out to be below minimum wage. A very micro managed environment. Felt like I was back at school.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the hours of work just like your competitors and ease up on the micromanagemt. Then people might think about staying.

    I have been working at Foxtons full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Having been at Foxtons for coming up to 3 years I can confirm that the company is fast paced, energetic, and great fun. As a Lettings Negotiator, the company prides itself on meritocracy so no matter who you are or where you come from everyone starts the job on the same level which is one of the reasons why the company attracts a diverse range of people and makes the workplace so enjoyable. The commission structure has...

    Cons

    11-12 hour working days which can take some time to adjust to and working Saturdays twice a month. However, you enjoy your full weekend off even more! The job is typically based on commission although you can just stay on a basic salary with no commission. Either way, commission isn't for everyone but is worth it if you can hack it!

    I have been working at Foxtons full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    It's been great to work for this company since I start. The company strives to be the best and their thorough training gives you a platform to succeed in what is a challenging industry with so much competition. The staff are great to work with and there is a real family feel about the company working together to produce outstanding results.

    Cons

    The hours can be difficult for some to cope with, however the more effort you put in the greater reward you get.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to be the best in the business and keep staff motivated with extra little incentives.
