10 minutes there and 10 minutes back. You've now made less than minimum wage, which is $12.00 an hour in CA.@Irene_L.A. wrote:
I have done many in my town, won't drive for 17.00, however it depends on the company, no two are alike.
I'd say on an average 40 minutes in business, another 30 for report and you have to take tons of pictures and not miss one, remembering having to take picture of lock on door, then other side of door, a bit detailed, but some went faster. I did enjoy them, as they were a challenge...not doing them lately, money isn't enough. I'd tell you to try one close to home and go from there, we all enjoy different things...you have to get a background check for them.
Understood. I won't bother you again.@Irene_L.A. wrote:
@SCM.....I don't need you to tell me the math, this work keeps me productive, and at 81, it's healthier and better for my mind than the senior center.....my ex left me his partnership in the mall they built in Marina Del Rey, so thanks for the concern, don't need it...
My biggest problems have been with people who didn't understand what would be required when they asked to be "verified". You play phone tag, and then they say, "I didn't know that someone would be coming to my house." Yes, many times you visit someones house because they inherited their mother's house and want to rent it and want a credit report for prospective tenants. And then there are the ones where the address you see is not really the address the "customer" wants you to visit, and then you have to go back to The Source to get permission for the change, and the change would take it from a 5 mile drive to a 30 mile drive, so you don't want to do it. In some instances, the "customer" backs out and The Source pays a low fee, but all I have done is to make a series of frustrating phone calls. I have visited churches, pawn brokers, banks, police stations, car repossession lots, houses, lawyers offices, stores, "secret locations" [I am not kidding you and, no, I can not say more, just use your imagination], tire stores, and more. Most of the time, I have enjoyed the visits because the people want you to be there. A small minority have been horrible people. Some wish they could live off the grid and don't want to understand why they have to keep credit reports in a secure location. The Source actually represents several different "agencies" (not quite the right word), and the questions and requirements vary to some extent. A common question is to ask the customer if they are lying to you. I guess some liars come clean? And once I had to verify that what sure seemed like a reputable church was not actually a front for prostitution.
