So I’m new to the forums. I’ve been a member here now for over a year, but was never able to access the forums each time I’d try.
I’m new to inspecting, so was using the Owens Corning program to supplement my inspections. Recently I’ve noticed there have been changes made to the program. Now instead of first come first served, it’s changed to stating you are available and you’ll get the job based on your location to the job and experience in the program.
I’m curious why this has changed? If I’m available to do the inspection by the date specified, why does it matter how far I’m traveling if I’m willing to make the trip? When you send me the lead, you tell me where it’s at and I decide if I’m willing to travel there before saying I can do it.
As a gripe, this seems like an “everyone gets a trophy” sort of move. Having started my business in November, I’m at my desk trying to generate leads for inspections and have missed out in 4 OC jobs recently that were given to other inspectors through this program even though I responded as soon as I received the email.
Just my gripes with the program changes not at all a fan of the changes.
