I’d be very wary about working for what may amount to a scheduling service, and being fooled into thinking you’re an employee in any meaningful sense. The operators I’m familiar with in Connecticut, altho this goes back some years, promised inspectors such-and-such income which they never delivered on, except for maybe one or two inspectors fed the gravy inspections as they came up while lower-paying inspections originally assigned to them were switched out and fobbed off on the newcomers along with condos as last minute changes.
One of these booking operators actually touted itself as the small business that’s run like a corporation and used to pitch agents at office presentations as being this outfit’s clients while the buyers were merely its customers. This is a distinction without difference, of course, but the agents got the message loud and clear. As far as I know these operators are still at it.
Inspectors fall for these come-ons and probably last less than a year in most cases, learning the hard way that their real income is not only not $20 an hour, but more like half that amount when running across the state for bottom rate condo inspections is factored in. I’m not saying this fellow’s offer is not as he describes it and not a good opportunity, but only that inspectors who want to go this route had better not go in to the interview with rose colored glasses on, especially if they’ve got a family to support. Ask for details about the promised inspections and proof of average income, and if you don’t get it, assume you’re being had.
