Pros: work from home
Cons: horrbile reviewers / no management support
I worked as a contractor for this company for 4 years, and I have 15 years total experience performing inspections. I had problems with the reviewers since day one. You get a request to complete a General Liability report, and the reviewers will send it back for not having Property information. A GL report is different than a property report. They will send a report back, requesting information, that IS on the report. They just haven't looked through the entire report. Reports will sit in review for three to four weeks, keeping you from being paid. If you inform the reviewer that the information IS in the report, they will let the report sit in review for another two weeks. The reviewers has attitudes, and will not send a report through, even when you prove them wrong. You have to change the report to please the reviewer, and to get paid, even if the changes are incorrect. Its their way, or the highway, and there is no room for discussion. Their reviewers have never worked in the field, and has no idea what the contractors go through. I worked hard for this company, covering a large territory within two state's, and made the company a lot of money, and they were willing to let me go, because of an issue with the reviewers. Instead of calling me, and asking me what the issue was, they just took what the reviewers said as fact, and stopped sending me work. They have no loyalty for long term contractors. This is the reason why that are always hiring new people all over the country. I have talked to others that has worked with Overland, and heard the same stories. If your a professional field inspector, stay far away from this company. The pay is not worth the problems you will have with their reviewers. I would still be working for Overland if they had competent reviewers.
