    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!!!!!

    DCave,

    If you have a chance to look at prior posts, you would see that your sound advice has been passed along for years. Good points, but they've been addressed. You might also notice that Ray Hall passed away recently.

    I think it sounds silly to take advice from a 'staffy' guy that doesn't know how to spell insurance.

    Mr. "Staffy guy",

    I think more than a few of us here on "CADDO"question your credibility as any kind of adjuster in that it is completely obvious you are oblivious to even the largest detail (ala' Ray Hall obituary thread right next to your thread) Oh and your above comment I copied and pasted in all it's glory about making a wife a widow (thank Ray), priceless man, priceless!

    Geez, at least respond that you now have a clue.

    Sidenote* It's CADO and spell check is on the top right, Mr. staffy adjuster

    Welcome to staff adjusting - where there's never, ever any cut throat behavior (perish the thought), especially now that you're in a situation where you are completely dependent on one manager for 100% of your income.  One of my former carrier employers just started putting GPS units in their adjusters' vehicles so they can track their movements any minute of any day and have it reviewed by a middle manager.  Dang, sign me up for that!

    Canon has several cameras that have GPS in them. Puts the GPS in the file with the date and time.

    My apologies to the late and great Ray. May he rest in peace. As for the rest. If you wanna hit the strip club at 3pm and are worried about a tracker in your car then staff adjusting ain't for you. There's a little thing called integrity involved. As for my spelling (really) so none of you guys has ever mis spelled a word (so stupid). CatadjusterX. I'm sorry for peeing in your cheerios. Hopefully I won't see your face as catmanager some day. It would be your shortest assignment ever. So glad things haven't changed on here. Same old a holes. Same old BS. So ill catch you later, I gotta put gas in my company car which is probably tracked and oh by the way (free). Yep I sure miss not knowing when I'm gonna get paid again.
