    wow sad news for me, I enjoyed locating for Premier, the pay, the work culture and getting paid weekly.
    USIC is buying every locating company and offering only $13 bucks an hour to locate 7 utilities on one ticket in Florida. (And they still want 30 tickets in 8 hours.

    You said it all with "work culture". Premier has a whole different way of doing things and a much different attitude, they really try to be a premier company.

    So rather reorganize USIC along the lines of Premier you can they will bring Premier to their level. Seen it before.

    If you work for Premier this purchase should be relatively drama free for the time being. Yeah pay is going bi-weekly, health insurance will change.

    Who do they have now for USIC Benefits?

    If you are working for USIC please understand that things will get better with this purchase. USIC is looking to change the current culture from being production driven to safety driven.

    Premier has done great things to the industry and USIC hopes to have some of that.

    On that note, my sympathies for the family of the USIC locator that died in Texas this week. No ticket is worth a human life.

    Last communication from USIC Safety Department ;
    "
    Regional Directors & Regional Training Managers,

    I regret to inform you that one of our technicians died in a vehicle accident last evening in Texas. All that we know at this point is that our technician was driving a USIC vehicle at the time of the accident. As we find out more information that we can pass along we will do so.

    Please take this opportunity to talk with your DMs, STLs, Supervisors, and Technicians and stress the importance of safe and defensive driving. ..."

    have not heard anything else yet.
