I would like to talk about a company so called NETWERKX in work platforms and when you look into their web site (www.netwerkx.com), the main page shows only Phone number & Email. Someone can easily tell that Netwerkx (solo) company is one man (Rodney Powell) show. There is a lady named Jamie Bedsole (Bookkeeper) assigned me a job in Work Market and she advised me that job can be done in one day. They lied about this project period and cheated on my payment.

After a long conversation, Rodney Powell admits the fact that a tech take 3.5 hours to complete one cart. Why did he lie about the project period in this work order and priced as flat fee to make big bucks out of it.

In the history of school environment, I never worked in a lunch room/music hall with 200 kids bumping me around for 2 hours and causing delay in my project work. I did talk to the site contact and asked him if there was a less disruptive place where I could perform this work. He showed a list of carts available in this school and advised me that the next cart would be in Library, and I could perform well than this place.. [continued below]....

After going through hard time in this site. I have dismantled one cart with 6 loading trays and 79 screws (B2B). Then I removed 24 old dongles and replaced with 24 new dongles. The site contact complained on one door and informed me that he had 2 extra screws to be used in this cart. I fixed it and the door stopped falling off of this unit. Before I left this site, the Craig Holden (Site Contact) firmly tested this door and it worked fine. I have successfully completed one cart and this unit is ready for Laptop charging /security. 

I had a sign-off sheet before leaving the site and I thought that I would be continuing this work next day. I didnt abandon this project, and I was negotiating the flat fee as per real estimated time given by Dell Cart Integration Department.

I didnt refuse to return to site for the second day of work as agreed and Jamie Bedsole advised me that she couldnt add more funds on this project. Then I politely informed her that if you dont increase this flat fee, I cant continue an assignment for $650 (21 hours for cart and 2 hours for fans & door fixing), because I work on an hourly rate $90/Hr.

I didnt threaten to take action against his customer. I said that I would go to the site and get a signature from site contact, and take some pictures what I did work on that particular day.

Jamie Bedsole threatened me a note in Work Market:
*** I am not willing to accept your terms and will not expect you to return to this site tomorrow. I am sorry things did not work out as far as a relationship between my company and yours. Thank you for your understanding. I will make sure to remove you from our network and not send any further assignments***

I have heard from a reliable source that Netwerkx got a lump sum $3000 for 6 carts ($500/Cart) for the project and they wanted to pay me maximum of $650. Beware of this company and they have no right to talk about Professionalism.

After I found real estimated time on this project, I politely advised them to add additional funds $400 for extra 8 hours (Initial price was $600 for 12 hours). Then we had a long conversation on this payment, and suddenly Rodney Powell cancelled this assignment in Work Market and adjusted the payment to $50 for 5 hours spent on a cart. He also made remarks on this assignment ABANDONED. 

Rodney Powell is willing to pay me $10 per hour for 5 hours spent on this assignment. I have a feeling that he might have worked in McDonalds recently and advising me to take the same pay rate. If he is an IT professional, please advise him to increase the pay rate on this job. Otherwise, I assume that he comes from cheap

Rodney Powell Lied Statement in Work Market: This is at maximum a 2 day assignment based on 6 hours per day. Flat Fee $600.

Dell Cart Integration Department Estimated Time: 21 hours for 6 carts and 2 hours for fans & doors fixing. Estimated Flat Fee: $1150.

Field Nation charges 10% commission fee from the Service Provider and protects Buyer.

AUTHOR: sam - (NY)

Field Nation charges 10% commission fee from the Service Provider and protects Buyer. Work Market charges commission fee from the Buyer and protects Service Provider.

I (Service Provider) had an issue with Computer Assistant (Buyer). When I accepted a work order in Field Nation, I clearly mentioned in my counter offer that I need $100 per hour, 3 hours minimum. The Buyer accepted my counter offer and assigned me to take this job in Wall St, NY. I paid $60 for car parking, $30 for tolls, $20 for gas, 4 hours travel time. After long conversations for a week, Computer Assistant advised me that they could pay only $150 for the total.  I almost spent a day (3 hours onsite & 4 hours travel time) plus $110 from my pocket. If they pay me $150, what am I working for $5.50 per hour?

I then contacted Field Nation to resolve a payment issue. There is an Idiot called 'Daniel Larson' Account Manager who I spoke to, he was rude and giving me order to do in his way.  This guy was a President at DLC Group & Managing Partner at Designer Marketplace. How stupid is he, when he demotes himself as a Manager in Field Nation.


There is another person called 'Arthur Jenkin' Vice President who I spoke to, he was very sweet during my first phone conversation regarding this payment issue. Then next consecutive email conversations for a week, he was writing 'My friend I didn't forget you' and he was not willing to release this payment in Field Nation.

In the first week of this payment issue, the Buyer tested my patience. In second week of this payment issue, Daniel tested my patience, and in the third week of this payment issue, Arthur tested my patience. 

On the third week, I sent an email to Arthur that I will be taking further action with this Buyer on payment issue. Within an hour of this email, he called me and screamed at me. This person used to admit in a Hospital because he screams at people and gets heart attack. He threatened me to deactivate my account in Field Nation. Within a day he did so, at the same time he was delaying my payment for 3 weeks after completion of work order.


Field Nation runs with bunch of crooks that blindly support Buyers, at the same time they expect 10% commission fee from Service Provider. US Labor Department should look into their activities and lock down their business for slavery.
