NVMS or NFN

Anyone have any comments about National Field Network or National Vendor Management Services?

Thumbs down Nvms

Stay away, unless you want to work and not get paid.
I've heard good things about NFN, but have never worked for them.
NVMS will be gone in 6 months, IMHO.

I use NVMS for fill in work. The pay isn't great, or even good. It's ok. My guys like it for the simple face that it's work for them. The pay time frame is horrible. Net 60. The worst I have seen. But, like I said, I use it for filler work. The office staff bids a lot of work before going out because the pay is really low - $10 for an interior/exterior QA inspection. Not really worth it if it is going to be your main source of income. Never had a short/no pay job yet.

Just my O

I worked for NFN for 2 years, as the team lead for their field tech support department for 1 and a half. To be completely honest, you will most likely get work, but there have been major pay issues in the past, some invoices not being paid a year after completion... On the other hand, I'm sure that most of the staff that is still there is quite helpful and willing to work with you. I am slightly biased, as NFN is the first company I worked for in this industry, and I owe my experience to them, even if some of that experience was misleading. Hope that helps!

IMHO the only thing good about NFN left when you did nick, everything went to S#*T after that. OP please PM me for details, I have trouble openly bashing companies no mater how bad they suck

I worked for NFN for over 1 yr. Very difficult to collect payments. I finally asked them to stop sending orders. They continually charged back late charges on larger work orders.

It's true what All Island Handy says about you Nick! NFN was the best experience we had in the business because of Nick and a couple of folks in accounting. We moved on from them, and the preservation industry in 2014. We are grateful for the work we received from Nick and others. However, our seven years in the industry were the toughest on us emotionally and physically. Whoever you are, if you are new to this industry, read everything you can here at this forum. There is some crankiness in much of the commentary for a reason. It's a difficult business with many unscrupulous companies and practices. Proceed with caution.

Just to fill in a little information on NVMS. They are a low volume, mainly inspection based outfit out of Virginia. The rates for preservation/REO are bottom tier. Never had much issue with the reps over the phone but based on my experience, they don't even qualify for filler work.

Nvms probably will have more work in va now as I am no longer doing work for them. On average I was doing 20 inspections a week for them that includes merchant inspections. But I found another place that pays better so i left them and Assero alone!!!

Presently work for NFN and I am having payment issues presently. I've worked directly for them for a little over a year and it has always been very consistent until about the let 3 months. I think they have sent one payment in the last 3 months actually. I'm about to the end of my rope with them. Any advice how to get what they owe me?
