What are sales commissions like at OYO?

Pros

Basic salary is good. But you can earn more in a steady company with a decent commission scheme. Some nice people in the team

Cons

completely unrealistic targets - no one is hitting them what does this tell you Rather than alter the target or look at the product, they will hire and fire and hope for the best by re allocating dead leads The pressure is completely unnecessary and no job security The probation period is 3 months even though the average sales cycle is around 12 weeks... if you get to this stage without a sale yet, regardless of whether you have a good pipeline expect to be fired or put in a performance plan Managers have a terrible approach, ‘aggressive is good and have no shame...’ understandably most hotel owners are put off by this before even sitting down to discuss what oyo can offer Pretty much blanked in the office by the ‘old timers’ (by that people that are there more than 6 months, and any senior members of staff you are irrelevant and just another new bdm because of the rate of hire and fire Mixed messages all the time. Don’t think anyone actually has a chance to strategise because it’s changed and then suddenly you have a free for all where anyone can approach any lead and next min it’s territory based again and repeat Very inexperienced managers Lack of commission opportunity due to unreasonable targets Terrible reputation among hotel owners Overall incredibly pushy company, pushy towards their staff, pushy towards their prospects and push hotel owners to close at an uncomfortable pace.

Advice to Management

Zero points for wasting my breath here. But if you want any advice slow down. Just because you want rapid expansion yesterday doesn’t mean you can force the market to change no matter how much money you throw at it. To sign up to oyo is a huge huge decision for a hotel. Give them the time you need and stop forcing sales people to appear desperate by putting so much pressure on them. They are already working as hard as they can, threatening them with their jobs isn’t going to suddenly make them try harder just going to make them miserable and desperate and the hotel owners will smell it a mile off. For the sake of the extra month or two you could have had so many more opportunities Also, at minimum look after existing hotels properly and not screw them for money and rates, these are the best chance we have now of redeeming a poor reputation. Upsetting them is just going to make us look even more unappealing as they will warn others against us How about trying to build some culture within the company and teams. Rather than ramming down everyone’s throats constantly we are the 2nd biggest hotel chain, because this means nothing to the hotels out there who have never heard of us and just sounds a bit false even if it’s true. Make the place enjoyable for staff!! Not a slave ship.

Does OYO offer bonus pay?

Pros

Salary is the biggest advantage that OYO employees have. The only thing that the management wants from you is to get the work done, because of that there is a lot of time to focus on yourself as well but at the same time you need to work some extra hours but that is totally fine as the atmosphere is liberal and nobody stops you from learning.

Cons

Well except for the salary and the time that we get, there are many things that not just me but many of the employees would not like. There is no such thing as job security in OYO and not just that you are not given prior information regarding your layoff. One day you are working very hard and the other day you are told that pack your bags and go plus there is no flexibility in that, that you can negotiate your relieving, it is a big no for then to consider you for even a week. The perks and benefits are not at all satisfying, no festive gifts or bonus, they just want you to work hard and in return they do not give much apart from your salary. The work ethics were not also at par, everybody does whatever they want, nothing is streamlined and you can do nothing about it, even if you try then also there is nobody to consider it.

Advice to Management

Employees are the base of an organisation, treat them well and make them feel secure and dont make hollow promises regarding layoffs. If you want to lay employees off then dont lie to them that no layoffs would be done

The perks and benefits are not at all satisfying, no festive gifts or bonus, they just want you to work hard and in return they do not give much apart from your salary.

What are pay raises like at OYO?

Pros

-Salary is paid on time -Competitive salary + decent bonus (If you were hired early) -A lot of freedom, very little micro-management -Good teammates -Remote

Cons

-They really don't care about employee development. I haven't seen anybody getting a promotion nor a raise in almost 2 years. -You are number, if you reach your targets, you stay. If not, you are out -Some problems have not been fixed for several months -Difficult product to sell -There is no vision, no purpose other than to reach your sales target

Advice to Management

Hear the feedback that customers and homeowners have given. If your strategy is to hire 100 people and fire 95 in order to have the best 5 employees, make sure you treat these employees well. If not, they are going to leave the company as soon as they can.

Does OYO offer a quarterly bonus?

Pros

Ill keep my story short. I joined OYO in late October and since joining, the support system around me has grown and grown and I have been put into such a good system to succeed. This company pays really well. I actually just recieved my first quarterly bonus which was higher than most people make in a year. I'm talking life changing money in just one bonus. If I would have put too much stock in some of the negative reviews, I would have missed out on a great opportunity. I'm thankful for this job and I enjoy working each day. One of my BDMs was just promoted to a BDH in only 3 months which Is awesome. The company just came out with a new deal structure that is already working very well. You can make a name for yourself here when we are still young in the US Market. If you work hard, communicate well, and have aspirations to grow, then you owe it to yourself to find a way to get hired.

Cons

To me, this isnt a con because I am used to constant change, but as the company grows and finds ways to execute more efficiently, there are changes happening all the time. If you have a problem with adapting, then you should look somewhere else.

Advice to Management

I cant speak on other regions because I dont work with them, but the direct management that I report to in the Midwest is absolutely top notch and I wouldn't change a single thing about my leadership.
