    As far as what they do in Georgia, I can't understand how they got the Georgia power contract and kept it...well i can understand how they got the contract because they bid it so low. A lot of the locators they have don't have no where else to go in the locate industry because they have been let go from STS or Consolidated(USIC). I don't think they pay well or offer a good benefit package , they also don't want you to work over forty hours. One locator I spoke to said he/she went 3hrs over 40 and was told to get off the clock when he/she hit 37 hrs the next week(illegal). Synergy doesn't have the entire state of Georgia. I would not work for this company unless that was my only option.

    Only ilegal if they don't pay the 3 hrs ot for the week before and then only for not paying the ot.

    Not unusual for employer to cut short the next weeks hours if the employee works unauthorized ot and is legal. Unless you have a contract they need not guarantee you 40 hours a week.

    My old man once told me that if you have nothing good to say, then don't say anything at all........Do you hear the silence?

    I have a friend that works for Premier in the central new york area who told me one of his buddies mentioned Synergy One Locating to him. Something about how they have a pending united states department of labor claim against them for unpaid wages. Also they issue rycoms as thier locating unit.
