Yes, its weekly pay but is it worth it? I THINK NOT.

They work for Homestarr, formerly EnergyREO, MCS and VA. I know for a fact that HomeStarr is hiring in Ohio or atleast they was. We quit working for TruAssets, LLC and took over their contract with HomeStarr.

Now KSimple says its worth it to get fast pay, let me run some numbers by you.

TruAssets pays $18/cyd - decent money but fast pay

HomeStarr pays $28/cyd - great money and paid within 21 days.

Then turns into weekly pay after the initial 21 days. So which one would you rather work for?

IN MY OPINION, why work for the middelman, you are making them rich and you're doing all the work!!!
HUD pays $50.00 cyd for debris. How is 28.00 good? How is $18.00 even possible?

You do realize that Homestar, MCS, Energy REO, and whoever else you are working for are also middlemen!

I am still not clear why everyone is so freaked out by the background checks.

I will do them when they make me and not one second sooner because I do not want to spend the money until I have to. And when I do I will use the rock bottom cheapest service I can find to do it.

We dealt with having to run background checks quite often in construction. And most of the time the check you got for one job was no good for another.

You want to work on airport property? You get an FBI check and a four hour class for each employee. Add a second four hour class if you are going to be driving anywhere near the tarmac.
You want to work on school board property? You get a Jessica Lundsford Act check for each employee.
You want to work on large municipal projects? You get to pay for the check through the GC, sit through an 8 hour class and pay for a badge for each employee.

You need the same guy on all three projects? You get to pay for three checks and 12 to 16 hours of classroom time minimum. Then he can go to work.

Each employee can easily cost you upwards of $300 per check if they have to sit through classes. And if they fail you get to do it all over again with his replacement.

I think the main gripe is that you are not an employee.

I enjoy doing this type of work. I really do. I don't have a crew. I don't have any major equipment required on a preservation job that I don't already possess. I don't bank on the next check coming in 30 days from now. I see numbers that certain companies send me and I can make them work. If they don't work, I can say "Go F@@@ yourself". So I can sit here and judge you because you "choose" to cave in. Because you are counting on those checks. Because you're trying to provide for your family. I can judge you, because you are cutting out a large piece of the pie that would have gone to me had you held your ground. Shame on you.

I know of no airport authorities, school districts or municipalities that I would require a background check on before signing a contract with them. There are several preservation companies, off the top of my head, that I would. I don't mind several hundred dollars of orientation/gov training, bg checks, etc per sub for gov work when it is built into my margins. Nationals take it off of the top. Our uncle sam money is much larger, faster, cleaner. The nationals money seems picked from coins and stuck to their hands with the "one more thing" thrown in before they hand it over.

They will award the contract without you having the first check completed. You just have to agree to comply with the background check requirements they have as part of the contract. However, if you want to actually have anyone be allowed to work on the property all the required checks, training and badges must be in place beforehand.

Yeah, it chaps my ass too about not being able to figure in the costs of the checks into may margins. On the other hand, my costs for bid work has increased by a small amount across the board to make up for all the costs they keep adding to my overhead without consulting me.

As the saying goes. There are many ways to skin a cat and if I cannot add the extra costs to my flat rate work then I will add it to my bid work. One way or another I will get paid.
