    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Having come from another agent locally I can confidently say that working for KFH is a much more pleasant and rewarding experience. The amount I have learnt and the staff in the branch has shown me how working for this agency you feel like a cut above the rest on the high street. There is a solid training programme upon joining up, regular incentives including trips and a well established brand to get behind and a...

    Cons

    There have not really been any specific cons I can put. There is definitely a need to commit fully to the role which results in long hours but that is the nature of most sales jobs.

    Cons

    Working on every other Saturday (which is not different to other big agencies) but then again, this is usually when you can make the most money.

    Pros

    I have been working for the company for over 5 years and have climbed the career ladder with KFH from a lettings Negotiator to Lettings Manager. You get good support and guidance from the senior management and on going training. The pay structure is competitive and KFH are known as one of the highest paying companies in the industry. The rewards do not stop at the pay package and you are given a nice company car including...

    Cons

    There isn't many cons. The only downfall is the long hours however you do get back what you put in and the pay reflects this.

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great incentives to do well and work hard. Including competitions to win a Porche for a fortnight as well as 2 expenses paid trips a year. The commission structure is the best I have come across and the basic salary is very fair. There is a lot of support from managers and I would be comfortable enough to approach the regional directors myself. There aren't too many tiers of management involved so you are never too removed...

    Cons

    The hours are long, but if you aren't prepared to put the time in this industry isn't for you. They reward hard workers so if you're lazy or underperforming I cant imagine coming to work would be much fun. There are a lot of weekend involved too, however part and parcel of the job and the industry

    Advice to Management

    Less weekend work would be preferable, and remove the lieu day option as most do not take them anyway

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've worked at KFH for nearly two years and only wish I had made the move sooner. They provide a strong basic salaray with one of the best commission structures offered in agency as well as smart and flexible company vehicle options. The management is excellent from what I have experienced and you are pushed to do the best you can. I feel I've developed so much as an individual and an agent whilst working under the...

    Cons

    I honestly don't feel there are any that specifically relate to KFH. Pay, work life balance, promotions, incentives, colleagues, management and the company cars are all great. The negatives are the same as any other when an estate agent, some saturday 's have to be worked, the hours are longer than a 9-5 and your pay is never garunteed to be the same but if agency is the career choice for you KFH is the place to work.

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time

    There is clear career progression and excellent financial packages. Incentive trips include Skiing in Verbier, San Francisco and Miami in the last couple of years. There are Porsche's for top performers and regular social events. Staff training is good and you get a company car and pension contribution.

    Cons

    The hours are long but certainly in line with the industry norm.

    Pros

    Great commission structure Competitive basic 45 min commute Great internal progression

    Cons

    The hours can be long but what you give in time and effort you are rewarded in earning potential. This is a hard market to work in but work hard you can change peoples lives and your own. If you are looking for an easy role this isn't for you.
