Hey Caddo site!!!!!!
Ahhhhhh I remember the good old days when I worked for US Staffing and we had so many emails back and forth on if they were honest, dishonest. Whos rope and harness school should you go to. Who was ripping who off, etc. etc.
One thing hasn't changed. I see Ray is still posting every 5 minutes to every forum he can. Ray please give me a class on time management cuz honestly I don't know how you do it. Ok, enough sacrasm. Short story, I do not work in the CAT adjuster industry anymore. I am staff again and will stay as such. The training and education industry in claims is a petty, cut throat organization and I certainly want no part of it ever again.
My friend Raymond Donaldson left US Staffing recently. The company is now run by 3 sisters. I know very little if anything about their organization anymore. I'm not even aware if they still hold classes.
Heres the meat of my post. New adjusters: Find an experienced guy/girl to ride with. Have him show you the ropes. It sounds silly for me to even think someone would spend close to 1,500.00 to get an inurance education from people who probably havent set foot in the field in a decade. If you wanna learn Xactimate, find someone that knows it front and backward. You cant learn it from a book or a 3 day class for sure.
Lastly, steep roof..............your choice, climb em or not. You'll prob get more work and be more valuable if you can. If you wanna learn how to do it, I think K-Squared has the best facility (shockin hugh) If you don't wanna climb em cuz you don't wanna make your wife a widow (thank Ray) then don't.
I hope all of you guys got some work this year and everybody is healthy and happy. Peace!!!!!
