Lightbulb Lets create a list of Nation Wide/Global service companies for whom you can contract.

I would like to create a list of companies for whom you can work as a 1099 employee, a contractor. I hope that this list will help people find work in their area. I would like anyone who reads this to please list the companies for which they do contract work. I want to create lists for the US, UK, Australia and anywhere else you might want to list companies.

When you list the company, I will update this first post to include the information that you post so it will all be available on the first post, making it easier to read.

Here is the information I would like you to include:

-Name of company
-website
-phone number
-email address
-scope of work
-brands/companies you service for
-Is the company regional, national or what? What nation is it in?

If anyone has any suggestions as to things to add to this information list, please post and I'll add it to this first post. thanks!


I'll start.

22 views and not one response!? So not one of you is a contractor for any company? I find this very hard to believe.

Seeing this type of response makes me feel that people are not very willing to share here. While the economy is bad I would not with hold information from like minded friends. May the best tech win, but give it a fair shot by sharing.

So what's the deal?

Its a great starting point for entry level techs because all you're doing is swapping out laptop hardware. However if you're used to doing virus removals and sipping on coffee while talking to the hot housewife in her bathrobe, then you won't like it
The way things are going now you probaly would need to do a little of all of them as long as it's worth u going out.

PC SOS -they called me from a craigslist ad and needed a toshiba laptop hard and cpu fan replaced but the catch was i needed to be toshiba certified before being paid, so they gave me access to toshiba university to be certified ($200 value) and also paid me $60 for the job which only took an hour

Global Resources -http://glblresources.com - Ive gotten a few jobs from them , they are pretty much a headhunter for Insight, the pay is pretty low per hour but since im slow I've taken them and I just was offered a 3 week gig in Washington state starting May 11th they pay for flight food hotel rental and guarantee a 40 hour week
