You will spend hours bidding everything under the sun and get MAYBE 10% of your bids approved. The always want "RESPONSE" to work orders when all they would have to do is read what you uploaded for an answer. They pit contractors against each other. (BPWY will chime in on this) Zephyr (upload site) sucks. You will get final convey inspections for $20 bucks net but need 75-100 photos that all have to be labeled and uploaded. You can mass label them in your file folder and upload them but that takes time as well. I have had properties that i had final convey inspections every month for over a year with them!!! Core-Logic, BAC, Cyprexx, Infomart Ect you get one PTC and your done. They USED to be great to work for but the last year has really sucked.

You'll find your NOT the only game in town. I'm more remote than you with a hell of a lot less population and there are at least 3 contractors in a 200 mile radius. I narrowed my coverage down to just my county as i got sick of loosing $$$$ driving 100 miles each way for a final conveyance inspection for $20. They BEG me on a weekly basis to cover old areas i used to cover but when i bring up extra compensation to cover fuel they forget about me quick............

I've had a great time doing work for 5 Bros. it's been tough at times but we have discussed and worked out those differences. Everyone has a different experience.

I hate doing Safeguard stuff but some here love it. I loved FAS for many years until recently.

I have asked OVER AND OVER for trip charges and they won't budge. I figure 50 cents a mile is not unreasonable out of my coverage area.

Part of my problem with them is i won't leave myself open to ANY liability. They sent me out to check on a roof leak a while back. It's winter and all is frozen. I caught hell as i told them i could neither confirm nor deny the roof was leaking as there was snow on the roof. If i said it wasn't leaking and they sent an inspector out during a warm spell and it really was, I'm screwed. If i said it was and i show no proof, I'm screwed. What's a guy supposed to do?

As far as quality of our work, last month we where #1 out of 268 vendors for Fannie Mae and we have been in the top 5 for 16 months. I do know what i am doing in this business...........

Its around here some where in the archives.
Do a search for it.
Heres a thread on them.
http://www.contractortalk.com/f118/who-does-business-five-brothers-106297/


Basically the siblings allowed another contractor to straight up lie about my work and steal any of the personals left behind that might have had a slight value to them either as scrap or yard sale.
I had plenty of pics showing that he had took the stuff, kicked a door OUT of the house to make work for himself and proving that he lied about my work. It was a remote mountain property that took nearly a full day of my time to go out and prove that the guy lied about me.
They paid a $25 trip charge after lying and telling me they'd pay a $75 trip charge so that at least it'd cover my fuel expenses.
The axx clown they replaced me with was a horrible hack and yet..... I was the one they chose to get rid of.... go figure.

I wouldn't walk across the street to spit on them if they were on fire.
They are just as crooked and worthless as any of the service companies out there.
If you are working for them.......... be warned. Wear a cast iron chastity belt, at some point you'll need it.

If I'm supposed to be the FNG then why did they pay me over $20,000 worth of work before banging my right up the tail pipe?
