The base pay is pretty good, and they give a bonus on each report based on your efficiency. As you get better at doing your job, you get more money by way of a bonus for cases surveyed efficiently. It's pretty amazing--you're in charge of your own raise! If you do the work and strive to be efficient, you'll succeed. The payoff is great: Good money, independence, being outside, varied work, and good technology. This isn't a job for everyone, but if you have the drive to work it, it's fantastic.
