My first response, would be to inquire as to why I was not advised that the position had been filled. Most of the vendors I deal with do put you on alert but get back to you quickly as to their need of your services. As to spreading the wealth. If that is this vendors priority rather than providing the best quality adjuster available, then maybe a second look is in order. Most vendor have what they consider their core adjusters and these are the ones who generally will get the first call. The core is generally based on experience and performance but does have its requirements. That is you can only say no one or twice a year, otherwise your tied to their needs. Not a bad situation overall. Guarantees work when available.
As to spreading the wealth, thats a vendors decision. Don't necessarily agree with it, because the bottom line is I'm in business to make a living for me and my family not someone else's.

Yeah it would stink for the guy who didn't get to go, but it sounds like the vendor is distributing the work he has evenly (very fair for everyone). How would you like to sit home while the "good olde boy network" sends out the same adjuster again and again. This is compounded by the fact that we are in a dry spell right now.

Well, yeah but. What if our Soul likes that basket. I mean its a nice, pretty basket that suits his/her personality and he/she is amongst birds of a feather. Unlike that basket from Mobile or Atlanta or Bumfuzz, Utah.
My delicate feelings would be hurt too by not being invited to this party, but what about the next party where the roofs are all 4/12 pitch, one story, expenses are low and the Insureds and the carrier people are nice to be around, unlike this party.
The old saw about 'Patience Being a Virtue' and the 'Diety has other plans for us' has yet to be repealed by the current President.
(On a side note, I am pleasantly amazed that so many of us are waiting for the marching orders that we are like crows on a fence, all poring over our computers at this website! It is truly an honor to be here.)

I would pick up the phone and call another company! Obviously the adjuster you are talking about is captive to one company. I am not, so that information would not be available to the vendor. I would be hopping mad though.
The lesson here is don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Ok, here's another scenario for YOU from another CADO reader asking for our recommendation on how WE/YOU would handle the situation.
Adjuster is put on standby for a storm. When he hears nothing for a few days, he calls the vendor to check on progress and status. Vendor advises adjuster that vendor looked at adjuster's employment record and realized he had made "too much" money ($100,000+) with them lately, and they had deployed another adjuster to the storm who had not been working lately. Needless to say, the adjuster was upset and also felt the adjuster who was sent out was less qualified.
What would YOU do? How would you respond?
We will continue to post various situations and scenarios here which we receive from readers asking for advice for YOUR input and advice. We think there is a lot to be learned by all of us, both from the questions posed and from YOUR answers and response.
