I have contracted with Superior Notary since 2007, told a health break, and picked up again in 2009.
Lauren and Clay have grown this company with care and professionalism.
The company has always paid me within 30-45 days from dates of service and have no open invoices with me.
But something very odd and weird happened to me today from one of their schedulers.
The company has not used my services since April 2020. Still, it continues to send me text blasts for various types of assignments from depositions, witnessing loans, serving subpoenas, collecting Medical Records, etc.
I accepted a last-minute assignment request for today, and the Scheduler called me to confirm, then stated, “Wait a minute. Let me check this out.”
“Oh, I am so sorry we cannot contract or do any business with you because of one complaint from a company.”
I asked what the complaint was to be aware and do better and got told it is a secret and will never be shared that I had to talk with the Manager.
Lauren Smith was not available or in the office today, so I have sent her an email as advised as the Scheduler stated she could not disclose why I am being blackballed and not used by the company ever again. As an employee, contractor, and even as an owner of six companies, communication is essential.
No one can fix a problem, issue, or concern if it is not rationally talked out to repair, improve, and be better!
I am clueless about what offense or mistake I have done to get that, especially since there are no unpaid invoices for my services, no written notices, corrections to make right, and no fee deductions.
If I am blackballed, then why does the company continue to call and send me orders to accept or decline?
I would think the mature professional method would be a phone call, written letter, or email to talk it out and resolve, but this call today just has blown me away.
I hope the Manager replies to me within the next ten days to make an intelligent decision based on facts and not hearsay as to block them from sending me further job requests to fill for them.
