Default Best Companies To Work For

We like to help contractors get a good start in this industry and value the opinions of the veterans. Which companies are good companies to work for?

The GOOD companies to work for are the ones that you personally feel comfortable working for. The ones that pay on a scale & schedule that is acceptable to you. Those companies are not the same to each person in this profession. I may have had nothing but negative experiences with a company you do well with, and you may hate a company that I think treats me well.

No matter how it's cut, company recommendations are a slippery slope!

nobody on here is gonna tell you anything, because if they told u that kind of info, you'd be a competition for their market. no insults intended, but everyone gripes about being screwed over by national/regional but wonder why the so called fng is excepting low pay, if everyone in this business stuck together and looked out for the new guy, it would help to start weeding out the bad apples ruining this industry. just my .02 cents

I've worked alongside most of my competition or outlasted them thru the years. Not my concern.
If you think the Nationals are getting a bad rep on this forum, start calling them and signing up. Then you can share your own real world experiences.
I can't help the guy who took the hatchback off his pinto to fit a mower and a shovel in the back. I could hire him and train him to raise his level and standards, but he is pretty much suited to the $20 mows and $40 wints at this point.

Not true!

Most of the experienced folks here are here to help. If that means guiding a new vendor towards a better source of income, I don't have a problem with that.
As far as fear of competition, 99.9% of the people on this board are never, never, never going to bid against me on a Freddie Mac rehab, or trashout, or anything. So why wouldn't I help if I thought I could?

There are 5 or 6 local companies doing preservation work here that I know of. Of them, none really compete with me for the same jobs either, that I know of, and even if they do, more power to them. I have a relationship with the brokers that I work with that goes far beyond being "the lowest bid", and I know for a fact that the 1 regional company I work with prefers using my company over all other venders within 300 miles. Even if that we're to change, I would figure out a way to replace that income. Competition doesn't scare me, it makes me better, not cheaper, BETTER!

MTMTNMN & I probably compete the most with each other in the local market. That doesn't scare me either. Tomorrow we are scheduled to work together on a 55CY trash-out and initial services for a broker. Plus we are there to cover for each other when one goes on vacation or just needs an extra hand. That is the kind of competition everyone needs!

If there is one thing that I have noticed from being in this field is that there is a lot of work to go around and helping out and watching you fellow contractors back is a good way to help your business stay in this industry for a long time. Since my company passes on leads to contractors from nationals and regionals Iím not your competition. My company is out to help more than anything else. Iím a preservation REO supplier, so my main focus is customer service and support. PropPresPro I actually have a lead for your area that Iím going to send your way. Hope it helps

I say Doberman Properties! HA HA

I like Corelogic some days and hate them others but all in all they are probably one of the best.

I hate REO stuff so my vote probably doesn't count.

Thank you for thinking of me, but like I said, I've been working with that company for a few years now. They are looking for help in some of the hardest to cover counties in Montana. Best of luck to them!

Please disregard Dobermans vote. It does not count.
