Collecting data for CPI

CPI Price Analyst (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsThe training was good. Part time, flexible schedule. Gathering prices in stores and restaurants was easy. I was able to do it in chunks around my schedule. I was the perfect job for a mom, work while the kids are in school, then be home with them.

ConsManager was unconcerned about safety, sent me door to door in the getto to price rental housing. I quit the job because I was in fear of my life. I would imagine there is less of that now that Zillow and other companies have that data, but it was really scary to be sent door to door in Compton and Watts.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse crime data, don't send employees to unsafe areas.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
