This company is a COMPLETE SCAM. Wish I could give it 0 or negative stars.
PLEASE please read if you are even considering joining the company or doing business with them.
The "hiring" process -- They call you, set up and "interview", and once you come in, instead of interviewing you, the creepy tech/HR dude (Dan) basically gives you a whole shpeal on why you should join their company. In other words, scam. Since they have such an insanely high turnaround rate after getting hired, they need to hook more and more people because tons of people quit. I was too young in my professional career to know this yet.
Then he continues to tell you how you'll get to show property immediately, get properly trained, etc. Lies. Once you get "hired" you will be asked to do b**** work - go take pics of units and spam every avenue online - craigslist, postlets, etc. Now that would be fine if they explained the process to you, but they don't because they probably know they won't get anyone if they told the truth. No one trains you and to you basically need to fend for yourself.
NOW get this! Here is the crazy part! So you get hired and are asked to pay an upfront fee of $200. Their "reasoning" is that this is an attorney fee for liability purposes. Clearly another scam because until you can officially show property (months if not more), there is no form of liability because all they make you do is post pictures online (literally).
Here's the best part, they hire like 10 or more people "every round" so your looking at thousands and thousands of dollars this company probably collects a month on just upfront "attorney" fees. Absolute insanity.
They are disorganized and half the time when they send you out to take pics of units, they give you the wrong address or there is no lockbox at the unit.
They take roughly $20-$60 out of your account every month (can't remember exact number, maybe more) as well. I quit a couple months later and they continued to take money out. When I emailed them, they "apologized" and stopped. I told them they needed to reimburse me for the money they took out when I was no longer employed there. Once against, creepy HR/tech dude Dan said he would and never did. Eventually he stopped replying to my emails.
I hate dishonest companies and my hope is this company gets shut down. They are anything but American or professionals, as their name claims. There is nothing more unAmerican than a company exploiting out-of-college kids and taking their hard-earned money and lying to them.
