    Former Employee - Roommate Matchmaker

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Roomeze full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - getting entry level experience into real estate - working with cool people overall; it’s a young team - making decent money and being in control of your own performance/hours

    Cons

    - if i could describe management in one word it would be HUBRIS. young cofounders are running a business in ways that are questionable. - commission pay out? Ha, laughable. Not only is it rare and sporadic, oftentimes the accounting is incorrect (full commission due being mistaken for leads, incorrect calculation, etc) - commission pay out often takes MONTHS, which is in of itself, unlawful - and here’s the... punchline, while matchmakers are chasing the money they’ve earned after the fact, management is getting a steady, reliable paycheck, while commission salespeople NEVER KNOW when they are getting paid. (Isn’t pay day supposed to be agreed upon by both parties in this instance?) - success here means buying into the culture of nepotism OR having an alternate means of income to get you through the severe wage droughts that are commonplace - CEO is in charge of payroll and general accounting, which is overall quite strange and extremely hindering, considering that reaching him can be quite difficult at times - Documentation. After changing my employment status from salary + commission to ONLY SALARY, i was never given an updated employment contract despite numerous requests - Employee churn is insane. Coworkers are great, but you never how long they will stay. I can almost guarantee that everyone that left positive reviews here are: now management or are long gone from this mess. **THE BOTTOMLINE** Don’t buy into it. Look elsewhere. You can do better than this place!
