    Pros

    Many opportunities to own and run your own business

    Cons

    Training. The training staff for their work order entry system is horrible horrible horrible. They try to train you through a phone and web conference with no sample or mock work order entries. The only entries you are entering are the ones that are live. If you call for support the trainers are so swamped they yell at you that they went over it on the conference call and they do not have time to retrain you. After training you will have to call for about two weeks to receive a work order and then they will tell you because you are new that usually new vendors recieve work orders six weeks after training so you let your crew go to find or work on other projects and then they send you work orders 24-48 hours after your crew has started working on other projects. There is no pay until a bid is approved for your company. They can send you on 15 bids that could equate to hundreds of miles and time. No matter what the expenses are to provide those bids they are free for Safeguard. But if you are late with your bid they want to charge you. And since the training so horrible you will probably be late because you won't know how to enter your bid in the system. After your bid is late in the system next they will do a "random" audit of your company and want to see permits for hvac electrical and plumbing Meth lab decontamination Etc..... About 20 permits for 20 counties that you have been assigned to in order to provide them with free bids.
