It’s that time of year again…
Twice annually, Yardi Matrix hires people to pretend to be potential renters and call apartment complexes about rent, features, etc. Background noise is fine. The company is gathering data on and updates an apartment community’s rents, current rent specials, and several other factors subject to frequent change. As a caller, you are an important part of this process!
Here’s what they have to say about the job:
“The Yardi Matrix apartment information service is a high-performance system with the sole function of supporting the commercial apartment industry’s dominant participants. The company’s services monitor the 50+ unit apartment universe from the property level to the submarket/market level in a form unique within the commercial apartment information industry.
This seasonal survey will start Monday, January 4th and last approx. 6 weeks. Surveyors must commit to a minimum of 15-20 hours a week, Monday through Friday only; however you may work more hours at your discretion. High-speed Internet and long distance service must be set up prior to the start date. You must be based in the United States to access our system.
Pay is based on productivity with a base minimum; therefore allowing for higher compensation for individuals with speed and accuracy. If expectations are met, pay is around $9-11/hour; however, you have the opportunity to earn more – some returning surveyors earn $14-17+/hour.
As a surveyor, you will call apartment communities throughout the US as a prospective renter to obtain current rental information from the comfort of your own home. If you are offered work, you will be an employee of a staffing agency placed on a temporary assignment with our company.

Why We Conduct Surveys – Our product provides information on various dynamic aspects of apartment community operations, requiring that regular assessments be conducted. The Rent Survey updates an apartment community’s rents, current rent specials, and several other factors subject to frequent change. The process requires calling apartment communities and asking various questions.
Computer/Telephone Need – High speed Internet access and long-distance telephone service are required. There is no selling involved, but apartment communities are called to ask them simple questions about their apartments, a process requiring good telephone etiquette and a pleasant demeanor.
Surveys are Conducted as a Renter – Surveys must be conducted as a potential renter to ensure accuracy of information. This requires that you be willing to play the role of a renter.
Survey Timing – Survey team members must have a minimum of 75 completed surveys the first week, and 100 completed surveys each week thereafter, with calls made between the hours of 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM within surveyed time zones. *A completed survey is one that has been marked Done, meaning no further calls are needed; surveys marked Part Done, Answering Machine, No Answer or Wrong Number do not count towards fulfilling these requirements.
Compensation – Surveyors will be paid $6 per hour and a piece rate of $.50 for surveys marked Done, $.30 for surveys marked Wrong Number, $.20 for surveys marked Part-Done, and $.07 for surveys marked Answering Machine or No Answer. You will receive at least minimum wage in your jurisdiction for all hours worked; however, you can earn more depending on your speed and efficiency.
Employment Status – If invited to the Fall 2020 survey, you would be an employee of Partners Personnel on a temporary assignment with YARDI MATRIX.
Required Accuracy – While surveys are simple to conduct, a commitment to accuracy and thoroughness is required.”
