    Is there anywhere that USIC is doing a good job anymore? I haven't heard a positive comment about them in almost 3 months!

    Yeah there is somewhere where they are doing a good job. That somewhere is wherever they do not do business or where ever or what ever company they have not been yet able to swallow up

    karma will catch up with you if you aint watching! Go IBEW.... the workers at USIC need to have someone who can look after their best interest.... To USIC, I say.... it's about time you take care of your employees.

    I see all the locate company bashing on this site and I want to put in my 2 cents. I’m an excavator who works in md, dc, va. I call I n almost 2,000 dig tickets a year throughout the areas I work. It is not the companies but the management that run them that defines the satisfaction of the employee’s and excavators. Over the past 10 years I have worked with some really good people and some that leave a lot to be desired. The ones on my good list are the ones that take your calls and solve your problems. They aren’t afraid to tell you when your wrong or admit when they are and they have suggestions to help it either case. What ever companies these folks are with will be successful, because they treat their people with respect and have their business heads on straight. And they are loyal to their companies, I know besause I’ve personnaly tried to hire most of them at one point or another.

    Steve, you might want to edit the quote, you don't want to have to make a court visit if this were to propel into a slander suit by multiple parties.

    Thanks Yahoo, Thats my hope. And this is just based on my experiences. The guys on the bottom list say all the right things, I just have problems getting results. Might be their own people are letting them down. Theres much work out there for all of us, We all just need to step up to make this system better.
