However, we do ask that all participants respect the rights of others to communicate in whatever manner they wish, positive or negative, and TRY to behave respectfully toward one another when conflicts in views or opinions arise.
Our goal is to create an environment where examiners can speak openly and honestly without the restrictions of forced diplomacy or the constraints of having to observe over-bearing rules of political correctness.
more than half the examiners are gone from this business because the rates keep going down every year, like clockwork
portamedic - gone
superior - gone
emsi - floundering
I can't fathom how anyone could even hope to get back their investment, let alone a profit
unless you plan to steal from your examiners like the others
run forest run
The pc negotiated rates with most companies are so low they have to pay their examiners like crap.The rates have consistently dropped over the years as the demand for services have increased.So good luck with that.
How much business are you talking about? 200 exams a month? 2,000 exams a month?as far as getting business that is not a problem because he can basically market for me at that company to agents he already knows...Since I have the contacts and can get a lot of business thought it would be easier to buy a franchise
You'll need to know that to get an idea of how profitable you can be.
You also need to understand agents and insurance companies can be fickle.
Loyalty is practically non-existent in this business. One blown exam and they could go bye-bye.
Which insurance company does your brother have an in with?
apps & emsi both have franchise offices and (as far as I know) sell rights to them all the time. (not that i would ever buy into either company even if they were having a fire sale)
i can't speak to conflict of interest but i suspect he would be ok.
but his company doing exams on family members, probably not so much.
EMSI EXAMONE I'm not sure but in my state the offices are in different areas at least 1 hr drive away from the other.
The conflicts comes from being a disinterested party.If your brother knows the agents and you are completing the exams then it doesnt' take a rocket
scientist to see that you may tend to work for your brother friends interest rather than being a neutral disinterested party.
