Has everyone got paid yet?
They contacted me, not sure I'm interested, certainly not if they don't pay promptly.
I get paid on commercial at completion, sometimes a few weeks, but none of this 60 90 days.
In fact, I even get advance deposits on some jobs.
Not bragging, just saying that's not acceptable.
Some companies will do whatever they think they can get away with.

Ha, they contacted me just yesterday and I told them I had no interest in doing work for them.

It makes me more mad for everyone else to be honest... I took a chance on them even though the forums say they suck... but again it was a little job, and I'm all about second chances... so just maybe this Ralph guy could turn them around... but Allied is spot on with everything he's said.

Luckily in this social media world we live in, we can BLAST them on social media until they shut down.

That's the way to get through to them

I accepted a small job from Boss Optima and they promised payment in 7-10 days. That job was completed and the customer signed the satisfaction line. The job was completed on Feb 1, 2019. Today is March 13, 2019... no payment. I have emailed several times, called several times only to get voicemail. The last 2 days I have called 10 times. The first time on both days someone answers and when I ask for the person that booked the job ... silence ... and then dial tone. All calls after that got straight to voicemail.
I am going to sue them in Small Claims Court - for 10 times the invoice. They can appear and explain it to the judge! Then they can whine and explain why they shouldn't pay 10 times the invoice plus court costs. What does a plane ticket from Mesa AZ cost to appear? Probably triple the amount they owe me. Can you say "Settlement"?

I got some strange phone call wanting me to do some tile cleaning. They asked if I was available on such a date. I was. I was transferred to someone else name Sean. He told me who they were and what they needed. I scheduled the job with them and immediately looked them up on the web for reviews. Found a lot of bad comments. The day of the cleaning came and they called me 3 times from 3 different numbers. I didn't t answer because I was in the middle of another cleaning. I returned their call and stated that I wasn't going to work for them because they don't pay or if they do, it takes forever. Sean transfers me to a man named John. He paid me half up front through PayPal and he stated after the job he would pay immediately after if everything is good with the client. We had a good 20-minute conversation about why they have all these bad reviews. He admitted that it was their fault and his job was to correct this.

I got paid half up front and it took 3 weeks to get the rest. I had to complain to the BBB. At that time they had a B- rating. Now it's a D-.

I did another job for them 2 weeks ago and am getting the run around like everyone else. Same story from different suckers. They owe me $477. If you get in contact with them they are always looking into it. My suggestion to us suckers is book the jobs with them and the day of the job when they call to verify your ETA, tell them that you want the money in full into your PayPal account before the job starts or you will not do it. If they don't pay no loss to you. It'll make them look really bad with their client.

This is what I'm going to do the next time they want to use me.

Tag their representative here on TMF. He said he could correct any payment issues within days. I think he goes by Ralph.

I get a lot of guys in who get all excited about companies that offer to "invest in them" or "give them business"... and I always warn them as strongly as possible to do their homework and, if necessary, consult a lawyer on specifics.

These companies make money by playing on the deepest, most terrifying fear an independent contractor has - what do you do when the phone isn't ringing?!?

"I can keep your phone ringing for you. It will only cost you half of what you make, plus your control over choosing customers and jobs, and maybe your reputation since we will dictate what is to be done and when, and for how much. But your phone will ring, and that's all I promised you... so take it and be grateful."

A reputable company can, in fact, help a struggling O/O through slow times. But many companies that offer such things aren't reputable. They are counting on your fear to keep you using them regardless of your profit. So proceed with caution, go in with a realistic expectation, and make sure you have legal recourse if things go south on you.

A healthy business doesn't need someone funneling them customers; so these companies are at least partially invested in keeping your business unhealthy so you will continue to depend on them.

Well I only took this particular job because the payout was so high. I told Mike I didn't want to use him due to slow payment in the past, he promised payment within 2 weeks.

But what's different this time around is Mike would normally pay after I bugged him. This time I'm being completely ignored for almost a month now.
