Contingent Network services / Unpaid Invoices
CONTINGENT is not at all good at paying their debts to field engineers. A signed agreement is required by them before being dispatched to the client site. The terms are "60 days", however, what they do not inform folks of is that your pay date can fluctuate as they wish or see best fits THEIR needs with no concern whatsoever to the soldiers in the field and the family needs in regards to financial obligations...as it stands for me personally, I find that invoices are 120 days or more. Jeff Stine and Scott Campbell will not answer questions directly, mostly they do not even respond, but miss a “hard time”, (scheduled work order arrival time), and well...they threaten you with restriction. I find this too funny. I have been handed out responses such as "sorry for the delay" like Halloween candy. I MUST MAKE IT CLEAR, I feel that I HAD excellent working relationships with EVERY CNS that I assisted with on a project, this is in direct aim at the financial power trip suits and the puppets (Campbell) that dance for their master. Before I had become a "partner", that term is so loosely used, I had heard from technicians of this issue, I chose to trust the company over disgruntled technicians whom I had never even known beforehand, I did not realize that would turn out to be a mistake, for I put more than the ample energy into building a relationship, I made the work orders for Contingent top priority for nearly two years only to not see even an ounce of respect by the accounting boys, much less MY money that I earned for a service provided. Be weary of signing on with this company, definitely some sour apples in the bunch. nearly 10K worth of invoices 120 days on 60 day WRITTEN terms and they pick various random "check run" dates to send me couple hundred here few more there, they seem to fluff up quite a bit of their show for whomever, then it seems as though the field technician does not even exist as long as they can keep the tech chasing the carrot. Quite often, not every time they (Stine and Campbell) give you info on the checks, something totally different is received. This type of incident has occurred in written form via Email, the response? "I did not say that" OR " well I did not mean it that way even though that is what I said (wrote)." where I come from, we call those types liars. No wonder they "pay" so well, they actually do not pay. to all, keep close track of your invoices, document everything down to the bathroom breaks, as if a way can be found, it will be to delay or not make invoice payments. so check your brain, those of you in business with this group, be leery of Stine and Campbell, I DO NOT feel all if any of the CNS team are aware of exactly how or even that this is occurring, however, I do have an intuition that some are in that decision making circle and DO know but I have not been able to confirm that theory, I would like to believe that those in that role are unaware and sincere about technicians as a whole. I am only one voice, but I am discovering daily those that have been wronged in this fashion, I intend to spread my message as far and wide as i can, blogs, podcasts, social networking sites, TV, radio and print. in the end of the day, its seems another corporate at its best to succeed by way of greed, lies, theft, whatever means to be the hero in front of the client, but less than cooperative or honest when that door closes. SO BEWARE TO THOSE INVOLVED.
The above statement is MY personal experience, opinion, and concerns with this company. It DOES NOT reflect my experience with those that I performed work orders for. lot of good people by all accounts on that team, Andrew Pearson, Anna Hoshkins, Diana Smith, Krystal Sphar, Victor Carrion., Derek Walker, Beau Cunningham, just to name a few of that I still think highly of. I do find myself highly disappointed in this scenario, Contingent was running me good and I was confident that I had made a good decision and enjoyed being one of their go to guys. But a deal is a deal especially when it is in writing, but the integrity of some there is unacceptable. there are tons of companies with the same business model, replacing them has been zero trouble, but the strain that was caused to me and my family can not go unnoticed or unannounced. I hope to save a few from this experience. I am sure my words will be muffled or deleted, but I will just pop up somewhere else to speak. I am a technology expert, they may have not realized how much, but it will be revealed all in time, all in time. I intend to strike this experience from my resume as I am ashamed to have been associated with the likes of Stine and Campbell hello boys-LOL). Good luck to you all that is on board as well as those who join this 'TEAM" which only includes you as a pawn, or a donkey carrying bags of wheat down a mountain, you are expendable and unappreciated, ultimately. Take care.
