The call ins are when they had BACFS which they no longer have. Those are part of safeguard now. I have never had a problem working for them and they pay fast. They are a regional though so their pay is on the low side.

Yep, pay is on lower side but pay is fast, consistent and I've never had a problem getting paid.

They are barely breathing, but I have heard nothing but good about them! For the good of the industry, I personally hope they can stay afloat! They pay within 2 weeks, almost unheard of in this business, prices are workable if you know how to manage.... I know several people that have done business with them

Yeah I could live with their BACFS pricing but their SG pricing is getting a little too low for me so I am passing on more work. But I like them as a company.

Yep, feel a little bad for them but a lot of people are feeling a pinch from this BACFS change. I was humming along working for a couple BAC regionals with half decent price lists ..... now I've just got one contract with ol' Safeguard and the volume is just not there for me as the new guy on the totem pole.

Why would anyone work with US Best if their main client is Safeguard? You can sign on with Safeguard yourself if you are into abuse and don't care about integrity.

US Best is done, and they had a good run. SG is not the answer, much less are they the answer for regional player who maybe can take 5%.

I won't work for SG pricing. I think those that do are suckers. So I have no idea how a middle man for the middle man makes sense.

Why?? Because they have been good to me for 2 1/2 years and i'm hoping they can land a new client. Also my time is worth something. I'll GLADLY give US best a few bucks to put up with SG's F-ed up upload system. Like anyone else here, they don't get a lot of work. Unless you work for the BIG SCREW. you have to work for 8-10 companies to make a living out here. Did 4 jobs for US best in the last month. Did one less than 2 weeks ago and the check was in the mail this afternoon.....
