Exclamation Do not trust Safeguard !

We filled out an application to do inspection work on Safeguard's website and was then contacted by their vendor recruiting team.

A conference call was then scheduled with "Shalia Nelson". During the call, we came to an agreement to sign up with them and work in a few "zones" in our local area.

Shalia Nelson stated that we needed E&O + Workers Comp AND Commercial Auto Insurance. No problem. We got those in a few days. (Over $2,100 in insurance TOTAL)

It has been a MONTH and we NEVER heard back from this recruiter.

Avoid this "Micky Mouse Operation" like the plague ! !

Did they promise you a minimum amount of work? If so, you can forward the promise back to them & ask them 'what's up'.
- OR -
You can move on & consider it a blessing that you do not do any work for SG! Then spend the time you would have spent fighting with them researching this and other sites to find out which companies have decent reputations and which don't.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

that are a joke

there is a a vendor on here from minnesota that pays the field rep money to keep his scores up so he can get all the work.. but his work sucks.. if you are not in bed with them they will suck you dry..

I left cause there is no money.. its a dead end job.. cant live off 200 a day and run a business with a shop, trucks, ins etc.

$2100 in insurance premium? That must be a monthly or quarterly premium. That's prolly why you haven't gotten work...you might not have the correct insurance.

That was total. (E&O) PLUS Workers Comp plus adding our business name to our auto insurance policy. Just to sign up with them after a conference call...but never heard from them after a month

Cleve,

Not doubting your sincerity but there is no way in heck for E&O (like JDRM SAID 1300-1400 for a startup policy) + Commercial Auto (guessing a barebones minimum limits liability policy would be $800-1000/yr) + Work Comp? Heck no.

A minimum work comp policy here (no coverage for owners/officers) starts at $900 yr for a General Contractor.

That's probably why you aren't getting any work........but like JRDM that is a blessing
