Don't bother wasting your time

First, they hold 15% of your pay if you want it in 7 days. Or you can wait 30 days, oops I mean forever, to get paid. It's been 32 days, and all they told me was to submit an email. Why should anyone have to wait 30 days for a pay check. Research people, I wish I had.

User's recommendation: Say No.

**My correction- it's 13 not 15% if you want to be paid in 7 days. I was just notified that I will be paid on Friday.

Barrister's website says that you will be paid in 30 days after everything is completed. I now understand that all of the Technicians assignments does not end on a Friday. If I may add to your suggestion box.

Inform the Technicians that checks are cut every Friday. If your 30 days ends Saturday through Thursday; your check will still be cut on a Friday.

The place MUST be closed. Let us get their license to do business revoked.

HP sent Barrister Agent to fix my HP work station!

Representative's arrival was delayed but he contacted me every time there was an update. He was fantastic once arrived. Knew exactly what to do and did it efficiently and professionally. Awesome representative! Would suggest Barrister to any business professional or home services! Excellent Service. Very knowledgeable.

User's recommendation: EXCEPTIONAL Vendor!

*** #BAD Company ***

This company is out to cheat and take your money at all cost. Unreasonable expectations, Steals from its field staff, does not fallow through with there commitments, Lies, and most of its staff is not US based. It be great if many answering there phone could understand not just speak basic English. They claim many things yet I have experienced inferior business practices costing money to myself and others there End Users. This is being nice the truth of the matter is much worse.

Ambiguous instructions, changing the rules after the job

They send instructions that are scattered through dozens of pages, make you wade through sloppy, poorly described details of the job. Tech does his best to follow the directions precisely, having spent hours just gathering the pertinent facts needed to be ready for the field. Then after the job is done, they come up with ridiculous reasons why they can't pay you, citing "missing pictures" or "forms unsigned", changing the requirements AFTER you have already completed the job following the bad instructions they sent you before. Trying to get free labor by changing the rules and giving poorly written and formatted instructions is their scam. They also call my cell phone at ridiculous hours repetitively and then do not leave messages, like I'm their personal on-call technician, HA!

They did the same exact thing to me. Call at 6PM EST and never leave a message.

I am SO glad I didn't hook up with these thieves.

Before vacation i was performing work and then went on vacation

i went on 2 week vacation and when i came back i was suspended for a part that i could not get back since i was not in the states and i did not receive a return mailing label. for the part , I contacted barrister and the part has been removed and the suspension has not been lifted yet and it is creating a a hardship. I guess i should have not taken a vacation because they will deactivate you . Note: i did let barrister know i was leaving on vacation and customer service informed me that they would put a not in my profile that i was gone. i would like to get this fixed asap Bas id Bas83039

You've written as if we all understand technical abbreviations and acronyms. I'm not a troll or a moron, but you provided very little solid information and never told us exactly what you thought you were supposed to do vs.

what you encountered.

You've alloed your anger to cloud the issue and it is ... cloudy.

they will not pay you on, they will not pay you the right amount, but one ticket in 3 installment. they will give job to a unqualified tech if they offer even 10 cent less than you even if you have done 100 job for them and made a lot of money for them.

For all of the negative complaints that seems to be your copy and paste response. It seems far more reasonable to believe the techs are not being paid properly. You would think that a company would take the time to write a response to the individual incident and not a copy and paste response.

Paying technicians promptly and correctly is a priority for our company. Payments are generally prepared approximately 21 days following the receipt of all documentation and information from technician closing the call.

Technicians must call from site to close calls, return parts correctly and fax or scan the signed receipt for service. Once those simple steps are followed, payment is made to technicians. Barrister maintains an email address, payissues@barrister.com, which is monitored and answered daily.

If a tech has a problem with payment, of any kind, he should email this address stating the work order number in question and a brief description of his issue. He will receive an answer within 5 business days.

If you are a freelance tech don't fall for Barrister global tactics, they'll beg you to do their job but when it comes to payment you'll never get paid. They try all manner of tricks to avoid paying you.
