General Manager (Former Employee) – Rockville, MD – April 25, 2017
Hours can vary depending on your position. Learned a lot about how REIT's operate and how it varies from company to company. Great company culture with a lot of internal support. Can be very demanding at time during the quarter end. FRIT can do a better job with the onboarding of new employees. They throw a lot of information at you fast but no follow up on training. This could improve. I would say the most enjoyable part of the day was "GOING HOME".
OPERATIONS COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 7, 2017
Hardest part of my job is the 3 hour round trip commute, otherwise I love my job. Federal Realty is a great company and is in a league of their own, as they have really set the bar in the REIT Industry.
This is a professional company to work for, look forward everyday in going to work. Very flexible with work schedule, opportunity to grow with the company. Most enjoyable part of the job would be the Team, working together to accomplish daily goals.
A typical day consist of. Getting to the building turning all the lights on. Checking the temperature though out the building.Making sure the trash has been taken out. Making the first mail run though out the building. Go to office check emails from employee's. Received incoming mail from USPS. Sort the mail in the mail room.Sat up one of the boardrooms for a meeting. Met with vendors. Received and sent out UPS and FED-EX from the mail room. Took care of any and all repairs around the building that needed to be done. The most enjoying part was me and my team all worked together and make it a great place to work.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 6, 2013
A typical day at work is answering phones, listening and answering any questions customers have. Processing a few gift cards here and there, and waiting around for something exciting to happen on slow days. Hardest part of the job is knowing there is nothing new for me to do that day and the next day and so. The enjoyable part is meeting/greeting people to our events and having fun working the event as well.
it is an outdoor mall, and i like to sit outside on my lunches.
There are routines to the Day-to-Day operations that have to be adhered to however, when an unexpected issue arrises (which is inevitable in Facilities Management) Everybody really works together to solve the issue.
