National Field Network

Anyone here besides me having problems getting paid by NFN? MY checks that used to be regular every week have now become more like every other week and are less and less in amount. Less work orders and seems like a lot of new workers, old ones are all gone.

It sounds like you have more experience with them than me

but they are the first company I have worked for that seem to have a systematic procedure designed simply to delay payment. Putting orders on hold for the same previously resolved issue multiple times, the most poorly written policies,contracts and work orders, bad uploading site, etc

I started completing some orders for them in March, and have only payment on a few small orders.

The certified letters will go out to their clients in the next few days.

They are into me for around 4K. They would be fools to think I will let them get away with it.

They owe us all kinds of money too. I knew they were trouble when I told them I couldn't winterize a condo because there was no way to shut off the water, and Paula from NFN told me just to get pix of pouring anti-freeze and stickers. Are you fricking kidding me??? And then a toilet overflows and I'm on the hook for it because I said I winterized it all for 75 bucks. NFN sucks.

Nope. We have always been paid and on time.

NFN was the last company we worked before exiting this business altogether. If you want to be paid regularly, then develop a relationship with someone in accounting. My wife called weekly to discuss unpaid work orders. Eventually we got to a state where the payments were almost always spot on. The kind yet squeaky wheel got greased. We were receiving up to date payments when others were not getting paid at all.

Yes, the have an antiquated uploading system. Yes, they have lots of turnover. However, we always got paid. So, don't panic, or be a dick, just be professional. We would submit a spreadsheet monthly showing the work orders they had missed. We would receive payment a week later. Empathize with the folks who work at these companies. Treat 'em fair. It's not their fault this industry sucks.

whether it is incompetence or a strategy. The can kiss my Lilly White ......

They were perfectly happy to hold my money until I had to take action. They did not pay in the time frame as agreed, you can't run a business with that degree of uncertainty.

They paid me most of what they owed, and agreed to a figure on the balance, but only after I went full on "collections" with them.

I need clients I can count on. When I have to take my pay and put it back in the float, I'm gonna be pissed.

I had some difficulty with their system, and don't put all the blame on them for the delays, however even after the adjusted dates, they were still late, very late.

Many clients have "partial winterizations" meant to pay for the winterization when you are just pouring antifreeze in toilets and traps.

Generally they don't pay very much
