    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....

    Advice to Management

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

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

    Pros

    Not having a degree or higher education qualification and coming from the construction industry as a builder I was worried coming into a job like this that I may be out of my depth but I have to say the training provided was next to none. Before you start in your respective office you get sent to the Foxtons head office & spend a week in the training department receiving some of the best training from the industry...

    Cons

    Hours - Maybe they can be looked at but to be honest it’s just a matter of managing your time better and I've been able to transfer my newly learnt time management skills in work into real life situations and it’s massively helped me!

    I have been working at Foxtons full-time

    Pros

    1) Work hard and you are well rewarded. 2) Great scope for career progression. 3) Training scheme that sets you up for life. 4) Constant innovation and new ideas. 5) Incentives; cars, trips & holidays for best performers. 6) Lots of inspirational people/managers in all offices. 7) The more you perform the more you earn. Your commission is not set, it is based off your results.

    Cons

    Very little to say. As long as you put the work in you will be well looked after.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing. The incentives you offer are a fantastic way of motivating staff and they have a real impact on the teams.

    Pros

    Been working part of the sales team for over 3 years and it has been sensational. The experience has been truly amazing thanks to all the people that work at the company from new starters to directors, everyone is there to help. Great trip targets and rewards for those who work hard and great training is avaiable at all levels.

    Cons

    Not a bad thing to say about working at Foxtons

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do best!

    Pros

    You are given all the tools to go out and make a lot of money. Training provided is world class.

    Cons

    Long hours Once you stop banking, you are made to feel very small.

    Advice to Management

    Once someone has been in one office for three years, maybe it would be good to start allowing people to explore other offices if they so wish.

    Thank you for your review and all your hard work. Foxtons is a true meritocracy with unrivalled career progression both vertically and laterally. I would suggest chatting to your Area Director about how you feel and whether you may be considered for any future opportunities.

    Pros

    I completely fell into this industry by accident and it was the best decision I ever made. The training firstly is absolutely second to none, by starting your career here you certainly learn by the best. I love that the company doesn't hire externally, the managers, directors and anyone senior to yourself have all been where you've been and can always give sound advice. One of the big things for me is the perks of...

    Cons

    The only negative for this job is the hours. We work long hours and at weekends for a reason, we need to accommodate the times for everyone outside their working hours. The good thing is that our commission structure compared to the majority of other agency means the pay is very good if you work hard.

    Pros

    The people I work with, the banter in the office ensuring it's a fun environment compared to the stereotypical estate agency set up. The ability to write you're own paycheque each month and earn serious cash. The cars, the trips abroad, the help and support from managers and direct interaction with directors make it a company that can ensure a successful career path is ahead of you.

    Cons

    Its what you make of it here so the negatives will all be in your head.

    I worked at Foxtons full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    You'll meet some great people along the way You'll have something appealing to put on your CV by way of experience, it's kind of viewed as the holy grail of estate agency because if you cut it here, you can cut it anywhere else Training is thorough and will give you the introductory blueprint for estate agency You will learn to be disciplined - if you're into all that

    Cons

    Regimented structure to your day, you've got to work in accordance to how they set the day up: 9-12 Call out - make a minimum of 60 calls to leads 12-2 Viewings 2-4 Deal chasing 4-8 Viewings Press REPEAT for 5/6 days per week, do that for 2.5 years and then see what happens. The repetitive nature is soul sapping. Colleague/ staff turnover extremely high. At the end of my 2.5 years, there were only 3 of us left standing...

    Advice to Management

    Offer some flexibility to staff rather than being this authoritarian Show some empathy to staff and their feelings Increase the basic salary as it's a joke to see that pay check after the hours one puts in to see 700 quid. Some months, due to external forces (solicitors, brokers, buyers, sellers) your deal(s) doesn't go over the line through no fault of your own - acknowledge it and sort it out

    Pros

    You get a car which is paid for When you leave the company you stress levels decrease infinitely

    Cons

    zero work/life balance, with absolutely no flexibility in the hours, the relentless 8-8 6 days a week with no days off in-between is excessive. Considering the hours are so long there is absolutely no work social events. Absolutely no opportunity to enjoy yourself at work. During office hours your personal phone isn't allowed, our office was arranged in such a way we weren't even allowed to make eye contact with colleagues....
