Hamptons International is very professional property company with good client focus morals. It use to be a fun place to work. The balance between succeeding and team satisfaction was spot on. I recommend them as a good place to develop your career.
Great company, great management, what more can you ask of, i first came to Hamptons as a temp staff then was offered a perm role and 1 year later i am part of the furniture.
great guidance from staff and management
salary could be a bit more
I worked for Hamptons for a short while in the Lettings, Rickmansworth. I would love to emphasise how great it was however that would be untrue. In particular the management pick and choose on whom they like, I saw many things that contradict the Hamptons ethos. Management intruding in your personal life and overall unprofessional approach to their employees. Needless to say, I am so much happier working anywhere else!
I have developed some key skills working for Hamptons and have enjoy being part of the office culture, but I do find the work to be very repetitive.
My typical day starts at 7:45am and my first task will be to go through my emails and chases on the system dashboard. My portfolio of properties tends to be quite busy, so I often have over 40 emails in my inbox. My emails tend to consist of correspondence from landlords and tenants regarding maintenance works, utility bills and other invoices. I also draw up schedules of damages and negotiate between landlords and tenants regarding deposit releases. My days tend to be very busy and I often have to deal with property emergencies, which makes prioritising a very important skill in this job. I have also learned to be very organised as I am responsible for coordinating maintenance works, property visits as well as responding to general property queries in a timely manner. My communications skills have also improved as I am required to be diplomatic when dealing with clients and tenants. The management tend to be friendly and approachable but sometimes disorganised and overstretched which can be difficult when individual portfolios require daily attention and firefighting. The work place culture is largely very friendly and I enjoy working as part of a team with my colleagues. We are encouraged to spend time with each other outside of work when we go for lunches every couple of months. The hardest part of the job is balancing the different responsibilities and successfully prioritising and mistakes can have wide, implications for the clients and the company. It is also very difficult to get a pay rise which has a negative impact on staff motivation levels. I do enjoy - more...
Excellent company to work for. Friendly work colleagues employed by hamptons and they were always careful to ensure any agency staff were able to fit in. a happy site was a productive site. Excellent management of sites, always well looked after. Varied and fun work environment.There were long hours needed at times but you also had quiet days which gave the job some variation. possibility of staying away for some sites as well
Worked in the head office of hamptons international which was home to country wides other brands head office to (i.e green and co). The people were nice enough, as the job is very target orientated it caused people to steal credit/customers out from under you. Our floor was home to well over 100 people and every month more than 20 people were complained about payment issues. (One guy was owed over time for over 6 months and counting!) Would not recomend.
Some nice people
Monthly payment issues, All staff are made to upsell extra profits but not all teams are eligible the comission!
Varied depending on the work load I learnt a lot of different skills within my time at Hamptons, all of which will be beneficial to various roles Management varied but on the whole was positive Work Place culture was exceptional Dealing with difficult phone calls Job Satisfaction and the team
high turnover of staff
A superb organisation who endeavour to promote from within and have a tremendous culture and service offering
Hamptons is a fantastic company to work for. What's most inspiring about the company is it's appetite to promote from within, this means that hardworking individuals without huge industry knowledge are able to enter the business on a level playing field and given enormous opportunities to grow. As a senior manger there isn't anything more rewarding then seeing your team develop their skillset, confidence and techniques with all of the extensive training and career progression that Hamptons provide, it really is second to none. I started at Hamptons as a negotiator without any industry related experience, quickly gaining pace and results through the brand with reward and recognition. I soon progressed through the several ranks and now I am able to run my own branch and develop my own skills through further projects and business opportunities. Overall, it is a lovely company to work for and the people really do make it, Hamptons is a stand out brand, with first class people.
Achievable career progression, fantastic opportunities and great people cutlure
Bonus structures are good however need improvement.
I've been with the company 8 years starting as a Negotiator and progressing through the ranks to an Associate. Hamptons is a great company to work for, plenty of training courses should you wish to progress along with all the support necessary for promotion.
Hamptons is run by approachable individuals with both good business acumen and with enormous industry knowledge inspiring confidence in the leadership. Having progressed from a position as a negotiator to a position as a Sales Manager, I would recommend the company to those looking to progress with a career in property.
