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

    Pros

    Offer Saturday roles which is helpful for those studying and trying to break in to the property industry. Offers opportunities to increase hours and help out as a part time negotiator during busy summer period. Good hourly pay.

    Cons

    If you are full time, long hours including Saturdays. Not much development opportunities available for Saturday staff.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly invest in Saturday staff and provide more part time vacancies other than weekends only.

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

    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.
