Getting Back to the Point – The Heart of the Santander CARS Mandate Editorial

EDITORIAL REBUTTAL

Our initial editorial titled “Santander Demands CARS Certification – The Contingent Fee Contradiction” we addressed the issue of Santander/Chrysler demanding that all of their approximate 700 agencies be CARS Certified. Despite our extreme efforts to distance any blame on RISC, CARS or Joe Taylor, Stamatis Ferrolis or Mark Lacek, all of their editorial responses focused solely upon their defense. It seems like either they all miss the point or perhaps they agree with us and just can’t say it?

Repo Agencies in Hurricane Path Report Lenders Not Allowing Vehicles to be Transported – Important Information for Lenders & Forwarders!

EDITORIAL

It has been brought to the attention of several repossession association Presidents, that there are Lenders out there that appear to be obstructing the release and transport of vehicles from the lots of repossession agencies in the path of Hurricane Irma while also requesting more cars be repossessed up to the last minute. We know who you are, and at this point we are hoping that this is merely a misunderstanding and not an obvious attempt to force insurance losses on any repossession agency instead of your own insurance coverage.

Santander Demands CARS Certification – The Contingent Fee Contradiction

Editorial

We’ve been getting a lot of laughs lately, as well as some copies of cancellation letters being sent to lenders and forwarders over their ludicrous demands. If you work for Santander/Chrysler you should have already received their latest demand for CARS Certification. While we strongly support the CARS program created by the respected industry veterans, Joe Taylor and Stamatis Ferrolis and RISC, we find the Santander/Chryslers demands almost laughable considering they demand their agents partake in the obviously dangerous practice of contingent assignments.

Contingent Work = Casual Work?

Editorial

The other day, I was sent an email from a leader at one of the major trade associations that just about made me laugh, if only for the fact it is so ridiculous, farfetched and outright outrageous. I was shown the Wikipedia definition of Contingent Work. You know, as in contingent assignments?

Contingent work or casual work is an employment relationship which is considered non-permanent. These jobs are typically part time (typically with variable hours), have limited job security, and result in payment on a piece work basis. Contingent work is usually not considered to be a career or part of a career. One of the features of contingent work is that it usually offers little or no opportunity for career development. Contingent workers are also often called freelancers, independent professionals, temporary contract workers, independent contractors, or consultants
