[QUOTE=Newbie;130673]As you all know I work with Regionals. I recently picked up a Safeguard client to have work to do during the slowdown. (small company that works for SG and pays me 1/2)
In the month of January I did an initial/wint for SG on a house. Then a few days ago went back for a full inspection only to discover a Servicelink sign in the window? Looking around it seems they did an initial/wint as well. I found, on the floor, 4 different Wells Fargo signs with different reps listed. Seems each new rep to visit the house placed their own sign.... none of them were safeguard. I'm the only one to have signed the sign in sheet since January.
Does this happen often? I assume no since I have never seen this before in my 2.5 years of experience now.
As for "why am I still with the regionals?" Take a long hard look at your employee's. Are they happy with their jobs? Do they love it? Yes and Yes. but do they take home HALF of what you make? I'd say at least 90% of you will say No.
I'm them but take home between $1500-$2000/wk. I do not have to work all day and then do paperwork all night. I do not need to label my photos. I do not need to sipher through all my photo's trying to bid every single issue I can find so I don't get charged back for the issue later on in life. I also do not need to worry about charge backs. 1/2 my job is done by the Regionals who take full responsibility for my work. (yes, I've read through my contracts with a fine toothed comb, and had my wife do the same)
The only issue's that come up, for me, is being sent to a house for a bid approval I did not bid on that doesn't exist. Most are easy $$$ but wreak havoc on my moral code. If it's really fraudulent I'll put my foot down and take really good pictures proving, without a shadow of doubt, that it's not what it says and prove what it actually is. Then inform them if they really want it done they need to send someone else to do it.
