I feel that I need to comment on this review for clarification. There was nothing inaccurate in the reviews that I've read. After the 4 month training period, Reliable switches their field reps to"production pay". This means that they get paid for each inspection they perform. They also require the reps to report the number of hours spent in field from the first inspection to the last inspection. If you do not make at least minimum wage, they will "front" you the additional wages so you are paid minimum wage for the pay period...... This is basically a LOAN... The money fronted to you WILL be deducted from your pay when/if you make more than minimum wage in future pay periods. As I stated in a previous review, I was mainly assigned to an area that required well over an hour's commute time to the first inspection and another hour or more back home from the last inspection. Inspections were often 40-60 minutes drive time apart from each other. At $6.50-8.50 per inspection.... you do the math.... it's minimum wage and you beat your car to death earning it. It is very easy to find yourself losing money in this situation. The difference in pay rate has nothing to do with how far away the inspection is from your home. It's based on population density. My Regional Manager sent the work to me every Sunday evening. He did not live in my area and simply sent the work out and left it to me to plan the routes efficiently which is a simple matter with a mapping program. There is absolutely no way to increase the efficiency of a route when the inspections are so far apart. I enjoy the Field Rep job duties and have worked this industry for quite some time, I currently work for one of Reliable's competitors and it is a night-and-day difference in ethics, type of inspections, pay-rate and management accessibility.

I have an interview with them in a few days. Just wondering what questions were asked during interview and was it very formal. Should I dress casual, business casual or in a suit dress? Also, do you still like your job? Any other info would be appreciated. Thanks

I read your comments and unfortunately for me I have just gotten hired to work for them. I am now worried that I am gonna get screwed. What do you mane by high risk and dangerous situations? I was told I would have to get on top of roofs but I didnt' bother asking more qurestions. I guess I was just thrilled ot have the job. They did mention going out of town. I live in El Paso, and would have to drive to Marfa and Pecos. Can you tell me about how much you would get paid per inspection? and when you went out of town did you get paid to make the trip worthwhile? I hope to hear from you I am thinking of turning down this job before its too late for me. Thanks

RRI does not notify the insured that you are coming to perform the inspection. The underwriter is suppose to do that, but 90% of the time the home owners have no idea you're coming out. If you're working in a rural area where people are not used to getting visitors don't be shocked if a upset home owner comes out with a weapon. You will be required to perform inspections in the drug and gang infested areas. Yes, you will be putting yourself in some situations that could be dangerous.

Watch you pay cause starting out when you are in training they pay decent than after that it tanks fast. I ended up finding out in the end I was losing money in a sense I was paying to do the work for them. At that moment I decided to leave. I contacted their corporate owner which at the time was called the Adams corporation I believe. I guess they thought I was going to sue them so they sent me like a 6K check. They do not pay mileage correctly and the territories are no where close to where you live as they promise from the start. Also if you travel for them to like other states expect to pay for it first or like my manager did once he put me up in a very bad part of town in a very bad hotel, like one you pay for by the hour. All cons for this company.
