Ams fnma mi

Just wondering how the good fight was going and if everyone banded together to get more money. As far as I am concerned it looks like they are here to stay. There are some days I really am amazed at how fast this industry is falling.

i signed up with them, worked out better pricing and so far no work orders. They did send me an insurance scope for repairs and they took 35% of the top of it and in insurance work they only give you a 20% margin so I told them to go pound sand. I see ams trucks just about every day and drive past the yard on alpine daily and they have a ton of guys and equipment so good luck. .

AMS is starting to build their own in house crews. I met one crew out in the field and he said they get paid $10 an hour and go house to house looking for something wrong an AMS vendor has done so they can charge them back. He said that is all they do all day long.

Seems like AMS is out to get the people who do the work for them. They lowball your pay to begin with, then send someone out after you are finished cleaning out the worst foreclosed homes in America to get back what they paid you. Something needs to be done about this.

Yeah I have ran into a few crews out in the field and they told me that they get paid $10 a hour and work 18 hours days 6 days a week. And for some periods this one crew didn't have a day off for 21 days.

This one crew said they usually do initials instead of another vendor, and when they do qcs they usually just touch up and don't report the things missed by the vendor so who knows it can go all ways I guess.

I have been getting paid from them but every invoice is a battle and you really have to be a squeaky wheel and email everyone in every email. And never start a job until the price is shown on the work order no matter what. I'm starting the think the only way to make money with them is to reject any order over 20 yards because if goes into a overage you will have to not stop fight to get that money they said they would pay you and the last thing I've learned is it all comes down to building a relationship with the broker, because if you make sure to get a excellent on each order they won't discount you. So you have to have a open communication with the broker and have them call you if here is something you missed, the broker seems to always prefer that route anyway.

That's what I did in the b of a days and then my work load from brokers exceeded what I got paid they the regionals

Good for you... 35% off the top, ask'em some time what they do for that?

One of my guys I hired a couple of months ago was a crew lead for AMS for a year. He said they did a pretty immaculate job on the houses as far as hazards and cleaning, but yeah they paid terrible. $10/hr I think.
