    I worked at Real Estate One part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great place to work, especially the corporate office in Southfield. It's very family oriented (but a BIG family) and the presidents are open to flexible schedules and other things. They treat their employees like gold.

    Cons

    The dress code is a little strict, and there could be more privacy in the work environments. Once again, I'm talking about the corporate office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People goof off a lot, so you might crack the whip more.

    I have been working at Real Estate One

    Pros

    Strong family values, flexible work schedule, amazing co-workers from my personal experience. While there is no tuition reimbursement they do pay for outside training opportunities. Owner's are very approachable and recognize individual contributions

    Cons

    The salaries are not realistic at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they are worth

    I have been working at Real Estate One full-time

    Pros

    There are paid days off and the company is once again contributing to the 401k's of the employees. The staff does receive a bonus at the end of the year.

    Cons

    The managers do not listen to what the employees tell them. There is a huge disconnect between management and staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The wages being paid need to be higher or some kind of bonus employees can receive needs to be implemented. There are all sorts of contests aimed at the agents but not for the employees.

    I worked at Real Estate One full-time

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, family operated company. Lots of fun company events (potluck, chili cook off, holiday parties, etc) to keep moral up.

    Cons

    Very low pay. HR does not enforce policies equally across departments whatsoever. Most employees do not hold college degrees because the ones that do eventually leave because they realize that even though it's a good work environment, it's hard to get by with that low of a paycheck. Our company boasted it's "Best Year" ever, yet I heard of many pay cuts right after. Some up to 25%.

    I worked at Real Estate One

    Pros

    The work environment is flexible.

    Cons

    Low pay, incompetence from managers and supervisors, dead-end job with no room to grow professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times. Invest in your employees, give raises, update office equipment, review your employees (not everyone is working like you think), take ownership for lack of leadership, have training courses for employees (stop hiring people that have no clue how to do their job), invest in marketing & advertising (get with the times), overall -- step it up!

    I have been working at Real Estate One

    Pros

    Being a Realtor Means (Your self employed) you can work as hard as you want or as little as you want. You write your own hours. disapline is the key. Desk fees are reasonable. Commission schedule is by far best in the business. Company sponsors many training seminars and most are of no cost to the associate. Chances of making six figure income are very strong. Once again depends on how much effort and time you are willing to give. Co workers are driven and always willing to help.

    Cons

    You can somtimes work on a deal for a year and a half and then maybe get paid. Definete peaks and valleys as to compensation. Being self employed means no company benifits, Health insurance sick pay vacation time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support and training are great, keep up the pace. Never forget how important Your support is to the front line

    I worked at Real Estate One

    Pros

    if you fly under the radar you can get away with anything and work there a long time.. its easy since any upper management will barely acknowledge you

    Cons

    upper managment is just family and friends.. there are VPs there with titles that dont make any sense and you dont know why they are there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get your heads out of you know where. this is not 1950s start running your company for today.. they refuse to advertise becasue they think they can rely on word of mouth.. guess what nobody talks to their neighboors anymore get with the times.. the family of leaders are incompetent for todays economy..
