How far would you go for a raise?

How far would you go for a raise?

Inking a deal with Rapid Realty has a more permanent feel now that the New York City-based brokerage is giving a 15 percent raise to its workers who get a tattoo of the company’s logo.

So far, 40 agents are inked and more are lining up, Anthony Lolli, the CEO of Rapid Realty told NBC News.

One new agent got the tattoo after only a week working for Rapid Realty.

But isn’t that crazy?

“I don’t think so,” Lolli said. “Some people fall in love with the opportunity. They fall in love with the brand.”

It’s actually pretty conservative compared to other people who have tattooed company logos on their person, such as the man who tattooed the web address of a porn site on his face or the woman who auctioned the space on her forehead for $10,000.

But at Rapid Realty, there are no regrets yet and all 40 inked employees are still with the company, Lolli said. Some early adopters are even making plans to touch up their colors.

The tattoos can be any size anywhere on the agent’s body to qualify for the bonus. They’re getting the tattoos anywhere they like: on their thighs, biceps, ankles, wrist, behind the ear and elsewhere, Lolli said. Some have only the RR logo, while others have also spelled out Rapid Realty. “They’re allowed to customize it,” he said.

Since all of Rapid Realty’s 1,100 agents work on commission, the 15 percent boost kicks in each time they complete a deal. Most agents start at a 25 percent commission so a company tattoo will bump them to the 40 percent bracket. Some agents were already maxed out at the 40 percent rate, but still got tattoos even though there was no extra pay in the deal, Lolli said.


Not for me

I saw that story a couple days back. I have zero tattoos, and I'm certainly not getting one for my job.

It's just hard to tell if this is someone else's news story or yours because there is no link.

I think tattoos are repulsive, and a company that would be that intrusive is even more so.

I don't find tattoos attractive. (It always looks as if the person rolled around on a newspaper and got ink on them to me.) If I was somehow forced to get one, it wouldn't be the name of the company I worked for. If I ever changed companies, I can't imagine that the new company would be very happy that I was walking around with a tattoo advertising the competition.

I would do this so quick your head would spin!

Anywhere? Any size??? I can just get RR??? YES I would do it... amazing offer!!!

I'd put the raise amount in an extra account and then kiss my tat every time I spent it!!!!!!!!

Since I have tattoos and I could get this anywhere and get 15% more than why not.

Tattoos are indeed hideous (the big sleeve kind), but I am 90% sure I am moving to China in October for a fabulous job that will pay $30,000 more than I make here!

With happygirl there is never a link. Don't waste your time asking.
