Lettings Negotiator (Current Employee) – London – 27 June 2018
They are a great company to work for in terms of training and development literally cannot fault that as we are always improving and without blowing my own trumpet we are one of the best customer service agents around and know our stuff. Only fault i would have is the basic salaries are lower than most other agents but if you do well which you are likely to do then your commission will make up for it.
Negotiator (Former Employee) – Cardiff, Cardiff – 14 July 2018
Terrible company to work for. They expect a lot but give very little. Long hours for pay below min wage. I found the managers especially the regional manager very disrespectful to staff. Very high turnover of staff which isn't surprising given how many are treated. Experienced, long standing employees seem to be leaving in their droves. It's a case of...if your face fits. The service is extremely poor and you don't get much for your money. I worked there and sold my house with another agent they were that bad. I was embarrassed to work there in the end!
Branch Manager (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 28 June 2018
Excellent company to work for a number of different reasons. A real focus on quality training and development which is then translated into a structured career path and career progression. An overt family focus helps create a dynamic workplace culture with excellent support from all management levels. A job which rewards excellence, whilst leaving the negative connotations of a sales role at the front door.

Lettings Negotiator (Current Employee) – Maidstone, Kent – 27 June 2018
Starting at haart was a massive step for me! Having no experience, I was worried about being turned down like previous experiences elsewhere. From the beginning I was welcomed to a supportive team wanting the best for me and my future. The training is second to none with support every step of the way. The management is exceptional, without a supportive team to back me up I wouldn't be as confident in my role as I am today. The opportunities here are endless, with continuous incentives and fantastic promotions you find yourself working up the ladder quickly with a helping hand every step of the way. I highly recommended haart to anyone with an ambitious mind looking to do well for themselves, this is the place for you.
HR (Former Employee) – Colchester, Essex – 1 June 2018
25% staff turnover speaks volumes. You struggle; you're on your own. Great company ethos. I was hired, but no contact/starter paperwork was sent to me. When I chased, the manager refused to reply. Unprofessional + really odd.
Administrator (Former Employee) – Essex – 29 May 2018
I tried this job for something different and although the job itself was ok it wasn't for me. I had a large workload supporting estate agent branches doing their admin work from the head office and dealing with customers and vendors via email and telephone.
Fun workplace, Great incentives, Great career prospects, All about the customer
Area Manager (Current Employee) – Kent – 3 May 2018
Nothing is more satisfying than finding someone a new home, especially when the company you work for is dedicated to providing excellent customer service, each day is different from carrying out viewings to speaking with Landlords, The training and development programme is second to none, from Trainee Associate to Branch Manager each part of your career is supported by your manager, senior manager and training and development team with in branch coaching sessions, independent study, and training courses you are fully supported every step of the way, its really great to work for a company that invests in its people this way and also offers NALS and ARLA training both of which are recognised qualifications within our industry.
In my experience the management here are hands on, supportive and have also followed the same career path that we are on so are on hand to offer practical advice.
The workplace culture is about looking after customers to provide the best customer experience possible and also looking after each other to provide the perfect environment to excel in.
The hardest part of the job? I guess it depends on the individual and the day but I genuinely can't think of one, I love what I do and who I do it for, haart is a family run business that is fun and exhilarating to work with, it cares about the customer and has personally given me a great career.
The most enjoyable part of the job is making people happy.

Absolutely awful place to work. They will make you feel so at home at the start, then when you’re settled they completely change. Over worked, having to work bank holidays with 0 lunch breaks or small breaks, was paid unfairly for the first 10 months of being there, unsympathetic and a company that will make you dread waking up of a morning. Do not fall for their false advertisement, it’s probably one of the worst companies to work for - you will be a slave!
The general day within the company comprises of taking property details from contractors when properties are taken into possession, dealing with any possession issues on behalf of the client in a professional and promptly. We work on behalf of the client, and with estate agents to place properties on the market, and getting the best possible sale price in the quickest time.
I had an amazing experience working for Spicerhaart for 2 years. I have learnt so much and worked with some amazing colleagues. I have gained a very wide range of knowledge about the different sectors in the London property market.
Property Consultant (Former Employee) – Blackpool – 28 February 2017
Didn't get treated particularly well, felt like a number and not a person, can be quite clichy there and general mood in the office is negative. Bonuses were given equally which is unfair towards very few people like me who sacrificed my own time doing god knows how many hours overtime to help the account managers hit their targets.
Lister (Former Employee) – Sheffield, South Yorkshire – 29 December 2016
Good commission.....but that's about it, they hound people and it really is just like the old style of double glazing sales. They still think the hard sell works on the majority of people, but then again it's the only way they can dupe people into signing up for high fees. A good place to work if you don't have any ethics or conscience.
