I did work for them for a little over a year. The only reason I made it that long was I had an AWESOME work load liaison. I'd have to dig through QuickBooks but memory tells me I lost about 1.7% of invoices to no pays and photos do not justify Bullchit. It would have been a lot more if my work load liaison wasn't awesome. Their VP of something or another isn't worth the time of day. Hi Derrick, I know you're reading this . Pay is low and they churn through contractors at a very high rate. The only way you could probably make the numbers work is if you are a one man shop with no employees or WC expenses.

Word on the street is the screwed the pooch on the HUD contract award. However Freddie was dumb enough to award them Pennsylvania and Arizona, go figure.

If you want to know PM me and I'd be happy to give you a call with what I know as I know that eyes are watching.

O.K. GTX, I'll take the bait. Anything that is fact based, I will answer out here in the open forum. Anything that is my opinion, I will answer private message or via phone call.

For those that arrived late and just found their seats, several posters on this forum have in the past, been contacted by companies that they mentioned here in a less than flattering way. A few have changed their posting names to avoid issues with current clients. Some Reps/Owners have come here and gave the rest of their story. I an not a lawyer; I will say though that if what you are stating is the truth, then they can stomp, spit and threaten legal action all they want, and that is about it. I'm sure more than one high level employee has read thru the Safeguard stickies and I'm sure they have been discussed in meetings. Yet, still they sit at the top of the page.

To each their own, but personally, I have no issues telling a newbie in the open about the rug beating I took from SOB Properties, or how SOL LLC didn't pay me after the fact and then reopened the order for another contractor to complete, paying them next to nothing but billing the client 40% above what they were supposed to pay me. If I can stop one poor slob from a fleecing by just stating the facts, then I do. I have no fear of the big boys, and there is no wrong is enjoying spreading the truth.

All that said Brad, to each their own. PMs are there for a reason.

The reason the Safeguard stickies stay is they are referencing national news articles.
Not so much targeting SG as it is linking to the stories. SG's name is collateral damage,
mainly because they are the biggest servicing company.


From what I've seen of Sentinel's prices......... I couldn't make it work.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

They are legit , BUT!! When they lost contract in Idaho they dicked us hardcore. All of a sudden for a 2 month period they started making ridiculous claims of why they could not pay for winterizations and other work. Reducing our invoices in upwards of $2,000 at a time. We worked with them for about 4 years and they were always tolerable until they found out they were loosing Idaho contract and started to screw vendors hardcore. They didn't even notify us they lost contract and had no more work, just screwed us on invoices and went else where.
