The negative reputation the company has garnered is mainly because of the business model. Arise requires all new work-from-home employees to complete a number of certification programs and tests, and they must set up a home-based office and call center. Most of these steps require the agent to pay for the expenses out of their own pocket, which can make signing on with the company a heavy financial burden. Many complaints arose from the fact that recouping these losses is extremely difficult.

RiArise has been committed to improving the situation for agents , however, according to Ripoff Report, making them more legitimate. The company cannot technically be labeled a scam because agents are responsible for their own workflow and earnings, meaning the company is not at fault if they are not able to cover the initial expenses. While this is legally correct, potential employees should carefully consider the pros and cons of using the company, as it may not be financially viable.
