We did for a while. Overall the experience was not horrible. They constantly cut our debris totals AFTER we cleaned the properties out. The pay took FOREVER to receive. We cut them loose because the pay took so long we just didn't feel like messing with them anymore.

Like CLHack, I used to work for them. My experience was O.K. as well. Started out with insurance loss rehabs. Did two of them and then they just kept asking to bid a ton of crap on Xactimate that never got approved. It was a little humorous as they would send the Xactimate report with the dollar amounts removed. I'd verify quantities at the property and then pull the dollar prices back out of Xactimate and send it back. I guess that's why mine weren't approved. They were looking for someone to do the work for pennies on the dollar. I mean come on, how stupid do you think I am? An insurance loss and an Xactimate report, what do you think a reputable, licensed contractor is going to charge?

Stopped that and did some preservation work and inspections on a case by case basis (only if I was working in that specific town). Did that for awhile and stopped that too. While I never had issues with debris count cuts, I also didn't do many trashouts for them either.

My biggest bitch about them is they will use your capital to fund their business. Expect a minimum of 120 days on pay, regardless of what contract your sign or what they tell you.

I should also add, I didn't care very much for their work uploading. Seemed like too much of a hassle and waste of time to upload something simple like a grass cut.

Speaking of grass cut, they weren't the greatest about the two week reoccurring either. Then they'd send a recut 6 to 8 weeks later. That's not happening, but I'd bid at what I needed and eventually get it. Use a disclaimer on the bid though as the grass can grow quite a bit in 3-4 weeks it takes them to figure out how they screwed up and why the recuts weren't getting done.

Yes. The fee scale is a joke, the pay times are a joke, the upload process is a joke. I do NOT recommend them.
