I was offered a job with mid Ohio live in Indiana. Does anyone else work for them in my area? And do they keep you busy? Thanks any help would nice.
You bring about an interesting point. However, some of us have had success with the same nationals that others have failed with. Perhaps this FNG's think they can do better with the above client since they might have found a lot of info on these forums/friends. For example the one nationals I can't stand you love. my#3 national I love to work for, you simply hate.BPWY said:I'm a moderator on a trucking forum.
The trucking industry is very similar to how the P&P industry works in that there is mass confusion and a whole lot of middle men with their fingers in the pie before it gets to the guy doing the actual work.
On the trucking forum we have FNGs that come asking questions about this or that bottom feeder company. They get a whole lot of negative feed back from those that have actually been there and done that and gotten the t shirt.
And yet they will believe the company's line of BS and sign up with them. Their heads are either in the clouds or that other really dark and smelly place and they believe that they are going to be the one guy that does not get jacked by this company that has a long and illustrious record of jacking FNGs.
At that point I must ask several questions.
1. Just exactly why do you FNGs bother asking for a company's reputation if you do not plan on listening to what you hear?
It sure seems that even before asking the question your mind is made up to do what ever it is that you plan on doing.
2. What is the purpose of having these forums if you FNGs won't listen to any thing you read and instead blindly listen to the company's sales pitch?
3. If your friends or family or neighbors told you that a certain convenience store with the best price on gas was selling a lot of water and crud with their gas and to not go.... would you still go fill up and think you got a bargain?????????????
There are other questions that could be asked but I'll wait until I get good answers to these 3. Some things really defy the imagination.

I have to agree with this statement. Considering what F.N.G. stands for, I would find it offensive to have the acronym directed at me as well.72opp said:It is not a skin issue. It is a mindset that many on this board have.
LOL a few weekends ago my wife asked me to mount our new tv's. I had told her I was too busy to do any of that for 2 weeks so call her brother to help since he owes us a few favors. She couldn't get a hold of her brother and called some guy off of craigslist to do it. I forgot some equipment about 3 hours into my day so I went back home to pick it up. Low and behold, the FNG who drives a Jetta to do recuts for one of my clients was the one hanging up our TV's. LOL. I told him he did an awful job at the reo property and he'd better not pull that kind of mess on my house.a1propertyclean said:I have to agree with this statement.

There's no reason to be derogatory towards new members. Just because they're new to CT or the industry doesn't mean they aren't qualified to do the work.
We were all new at this, at one time, remember? When I first joined CT, there were hardly any members doing preservation. I remember being very grateful that the CT members didn't lambaste me for "being new" or for what I thought might be borderline-dumb questions.
I also remember being grateful for what I was able to learn through other members' conscientious postings and how disgusted I was the few times someone "looked down on" me and tried to make me feel inferior.
