    I have been working at Velocity REOS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I like that its on my own time. I get to work alone, don't have to deal with anyone really. I know a lot of people would see that as a con, but it's a must for me. Since I live very simply, the pay is pretty good for what it is. Management has been nice and helpful when I made mistakes.

    Cons

    Some days I get 1 house, other days I get over 20. I know they can't really help when orders come, this is just really the only con I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful if employees could see their grade to improve themselves.

    I worked at Velocity REOS part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Independent contractor position but that’s all the pros

    Cons

    What can I say that hasn’t already been said in other reviews? I’ve been with this company for several years but the quality of management and communication has gone down significantly. The website is a joke and either one of two things is happening: 1. Website is “accepting” job requests when you decline or 2. Employee is assigning it after 3 attempts of you declining (and saying it’s too far, and not enough money,...

    Advice to Management

    I have several jobs. I’m a highly respected teacher , but I also manage a courier service with 40 contractor drivers. I dispatch jobs, I work with clients, and I’ve received a reward because all the drivers under my management have STAYED WITH THE COMPANY for 2+ years. What’s the secret? It’s simple really, you communicate and treat your employees with the same respect you treat your clients. Their pay is very minimal,...

      I have been working at Velocity REOS part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Nothing to add poor money. Poor everything

      Cons

      I did a job in which it was a holiday weekend. Upon arrival to the home. I noticed lots of cars around. I attempted to take pics at a certain point several people emerged from the residence and asked me to leave. Their people around my vehicle etc. I was only able to obtain 5 out of 7 pics that were required. I did not want a confrontation I explained this to velocity. They said I needed to go back. I was not allowed...

      I worked at Velocity REOS part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Seems to be an easy job to do.

      Cons

      Awful management. They do not understand basic things when it comes to managing employees. I cannot believe that it can be so bad. Unreasonable deadlines. Poor communication.

      Advice to Management

      I am an experienced real estate agent who owns an appraisal service business as a side venture. I came across these folks and decided that it would be a good idea to sign up with them and save some money on my photographers by delegating my workflow to them. Brief Advice: You need to appreciate people you work with and try to keep as many good people as possible. Instead, you dump people with a snap of fingers without...

      extra little money, pays on time

      Cons

      not enough work but the company always hiring more and more people. pay is very low just enough to pay for your gas but not for your work, not a job you can depend on, not enough jobs, if you send them an email they responded with an automatic system, " yes we understand" or "yes we got your message" the whole work environment is very unprofessional

      I worked at Velocity REOS part-time

      Pros

      You can work when you want to and make some additional income...if they have anything for you. Pays quickly.

      Cons

      If they make a mistake, they put it on you and cut off all your jobs. They don't care about you at all. They will take loyal dependable employees and cut them off at the knees. Its disgusting how they treat you.

      Advice to Management

      For those employees like myself, who were always on time and submitted quality work...why don't you try to keep them around. You actually made a mistake on a job you sent me to and then didn't want to pay me to drive back out there to re-shoot it. It was YOUR mistake! Instead, you punished me by making sure I didn't get any more jobs. Your despicable.

        Pros

        Not much money, but not much work either

        Cons

        They will dump you in a heartbeat if you can't complete the assignment for extenuating circumstances. Recently, I had a property owner and his father refuse to remove themselves from the picture. I only approached them after five drivebys. I missed the deadline for the assignment (same day rush), they said no problem, go out early next day, so I got up at sunrise, took the pics, and now no assignments since then. (two...

        At least try work with your people. If there's a problem at least try to understand. I'm sure you've dumped a lot of good people.

        They are great for the first couple of months. The pay is right on time. no questions asked.

        Cons

        These people are shady and they are performing shady business practices. Why do you think they want you to go with paypal as a form of payment?? They do not want to claim you as a contractor so they can make money off of you with claiming it. They make on average the average double what they pay you. Just when you start making money and you are approaching the limit of "CLAIMING YOU" They cut you off for no reason and...

        I signed up at the end of 2015, sent in my nice shots of a trial house. I immediately got sent a job and completed it double time and sent in. I saw on my money earned that I had $8.00 owed to me. I waited and didn't receive anything else. I checked my spam folders as suggested on their site...nothing. I just happened to look in my server dashboard and noticed an e-mail from them that got caught in my spam folder on the...

        Be more open with your employees. This looks and feels like a scam. It could be really great but to cut someone off with no explanation is rude and unprofessional.
