Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Rockaway Beach, OR – April 26, 2018
good paying job. Not to hard to learn the job and pretty easy to do. Only bad thing is they over work their employees and get mad when someone wants a day off or try to make someone work on their scheduled day off!!
you'll have no life. you'll be stuck at work all day, everyday!

Wish the company would have offered more consistency as far hours. I find it difficult to make a living based on sporatic hours. The hourly pay was great but what was the point when the hours were cut short.
provided a cell phone
wasn't able to make enough hours to qualify for health insurance

I wrote a more comprehensive review of working for these people over in glass door, but I'll summarize here. Everything negative people say about this place is true; I've never before (or since) encountered a job that was so perfectly predicted by the online community. From management problems to supply issues to the general attitude problem of the company. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

The low pay, lack of opportunities for growth, and task repetition (I've written hundreds of articles that are all frustratingly similar with little room for creativity) make this a pretty dull job. Fine if you need a few extra bucks or if you're just starting out.
I enjoyed my work and the people I worked with. They were good people and it was a team environment. I was able to work at my own pace and very rarely was pressured to do things that I was not qualified to do. I would recommend Vacasa to others.

This is not a good place to work they go through employees like used tissue. They expect too many cleans in too short of time, there is horrible communication between management and cleaners, and they don't provide a schedule you get to know if you are working the day of.
Field Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – January 7, 2018
Vacasa is an interesting company, and when everything is working it was an enjoyable place to work. Unfortunately, the company has an incredibly high turnover rate. As a startup ones role is constantly changing , and the high turnover rate led to me having 5 different managers over the course of a little more than a year. Each manager required different things, and caused the entire job to change based on what that manager was emphasizing. Also, working on a salary with "unlimited time off" means that you never get a full day off. Instead they count any down time during your business day as your vacation time.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – I’d rather not say – December 23, 2017
The app required to log in/ training messes up on a regular basis. Management “adjusts” your hours (taking away hours worked so that they qualify for their bonuses). So if you don’t like being paid for all hours worked than you shouldn’t work here. Schedule changes daily and sometimes at the last minute. I found out at 7:00 am what my schedule was for that day. Schedules sometimes changed without notice at anytime during the day. Was on call everyday (with no compensation for availability). They think they can assign you something anytime without notice even on your day off. Sometimes they have you drive across town to do a 20 minute job in the middle of the day and nothing else scheduled all day. Hours are inconsistent so if you need a job with a consistent paycheck than do not be a housekeeper here.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Remote Location – December 11, 2017
Don't work for this company. They change direction at the worst time. During busy summer or ski season.
Upper management is all about numbers and not about people. I worked very hard for the company and was given the opportunity to advance and was not given any guidance. When I heard that another manager went for training and I ask why I was not given the opportunity to go to training. They had no answer and was shrugged off for even asking.
Business Development Representative-Vermont (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – December 7, 2017
Roles were not defined and in continuous flux. Had to always pick up the slack for other departments. Overall nice people at the company. Lots of travel in the territory, and weekend and nights are always in play.
