It’s that time of year again…
Two or three times yearly, Yardi Matrix hires people to pretend to be prospective renters and call apartment complexes about rent, features, etc. Background noise is fine. Set your own schedule.
These jobs START ON MAY 4 and usually fill fast, so apply or share quickly if interested.
Here are some pointers from RRRebels who were kind enough to share their insights about the job on our Facebook page:
“Make sure you read the manual. Download the manual and practice searching it too. The test is open book. All of the answers are in the manual.” – Samantha M.Q.
“I was hired by Yardi for the Spring session. The test seems daunting, I know, but the answers are in the manual Like Samantha said. I downloaded the manual on my tablet and took the test on my laptop. When you actually start the job, one advantage of having the test is that you are familiar with the manual. I took notes while talking to the managers and didn’t attempt to fill in all the information while on the phone with the apartment manager.” – Dana R.A.
Here’s what the company has to say about the openings:
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.”
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 done surveys the first week and 100 completed done surveys each week thereafter, with calls made between the hours of 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM within surveyed time zones. *A completed done 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 Spring 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.
