I was told by a company that I should start using the mobile app so they get their information sooner. When I asked if I get my pay sooner, they said no, why?
Then I explained to them that in order to make a living, I have to run X amount of jobs in the field, and if I have to use the mobile app, it will slow that down, and I won't be able to continue with you.
When the fam goes to bed, I listen to the radio while I finish the paperwork at nite for an hour and a half, and that is fine, because I budget that time into my pay. When I have to spend time in the field doing this, reducing the amount of inspections I do because of daylight, then we have a problem.
One company insisted I use their mobile app and when I explained this to them they said that this is the new way, and I have to do it, then I just stopped doing their inspections. They called a month later wondering if I would come back and when they said they still required the mobile app, I just hung up.
No in-the-field apps for me or my crew. Just isn't going to happen, unless I get compensated for my time... right...
