I contracted with this company to perform insurance property inspections.They request information not outlined in their forms and wont pay until the additional irrelevant info is obtained.

They also had me do commercial inspections on personal lines forms to avoid paying commercial and farm operation fees.They also had me complete forms for woodburning stoves when there was no woodburner on the property and refused to pay the fee for the form. I drove about 1 mile for every dollar earned,and have made less than minimum wage. I also paid my phone, copy paper and ink.

They do not provide adequate information and very little in writing until I complained.Most company policy seemed to created as when they went along and was just a way to prevent paying fees.Beware of this as it may be a scam.

Had an Experience with Midwest Technical Inspections?

They are a good company to contract with.Like any company, it may take up to a month to be paid for an inspection preformed, but I have always been paid.

So just understand how pay works, you invoice them and then they will pay you once everything clears review. Just keep track of you accounts receivable. and accounts payable. You are self-employed when working with them.

You have your own personal business. Just balance you budget and you will be fine.

If you are smart with your time, you shouldn't have any issues making money with these guys. They are not the best paying firm, but they give you enough work to keep you going.

Far as fuel charges, I haven't had too many issues either.

I have out priced myself once or twice, but they have always been good negotiating extra charges for longer distances.

I agree with you.All inspection companies work the same way.

I am contracted with a few in my area and it does take time to get paid. Usually 3 weeks to a month from the time billing is approved. I manage to make good money though and I am earning enough to make it well worth my while. I think a lot of people complain because they don't understand how it works to be self employed and how to run a small business either.

Good records are a must!

And you have to manage your time and efforts wisely!That means pay attention to what is required and get it all the first time around!

I've worked as a contractor for MTI for almost 15 years and have never had an issue.They are very clear with what their expectations are and if you're a professional, then you won't have any problems either.

They are very economical with their practices but are also the most ethical of companies that I've dealt with. Unlike other fly-by-night companies, you'll always get paid, just finish the work.

It's not rocket science.Don't be lazy, work hard and you'll always have work.

I worked at this place a commercial lines reviewer, I was given instructions by management to "Churn and burn" review of reposrts because they had a backlog, In addition to this several of the employees have chronic health problems. One employee has had a hacking cough (sound like the person is coughing a lung out) Another employee is a control freak, this employees fakes headaches (has to close the blinds, sunlight brothers this employee, walks around spraying cleaning compounds all over the place, did 15 minutes on a Monday morning on how too much sex and the F word was in the movie Wolf of Wall Street) the employee rented the movie if they did not like it, all they had was to turn it off.

So true they don't pay!!They are *** to deal with.

I have been put off for months regarding my travel reimbursement . Look like it will never happen.. I am going to called the companies that send them orders send out a few emails and get this ball rolling.. They have unfair practices that the companies don't know about..And you will be told to not disclose things to companies Such as Amtrust or the other carriers they get your work from..

I would not work for them again and can not recommend them..

Been contracted with them for 3.5 years now, never had a problem with getting paid or anything else.Different clients have special requests that are explained in the special instructions section.

I can add a surcharge for surveys out of my area.Had to learn their way of doing business and since then I have no complaints.

I have also done some inspection work for this firm.Got hooked into doing some workers comp work where they paid a premium rate (similar rate to other companies that I contract with) Then went on to do property / liability inspections for them.

Did not know that they pay only $24 flat fee for jobs where you have to travel 30 miles each way until after receiving check.

Their fee barely pays for fuel, the rest (travel to and from, inspection, and report write up is basically free) They probably bill the insurance comapny many $$ and pay out peanut shells.They were basically sucking money out of your wallet.
