Recruiting ads for new rental service leasing agents on Craigslist lure the naïve into thinking they’ll join a fast-growing elite firm, be trained for a career with high earnings potential, and be supported with the latest technology.
The reality is that working at a rental service is a miserable experience for many new recruits, who wash out of the business without netting what they would have earned at a minimum wage job. Rental services aren’t continually recruiting because they’re growing quickly, but because they have very high turnover.
