Companies that will hire NEW signers!

Here are some companies that typically hire new notaries. As a new notary, your primary responsibility to yourself is to get some experience under your belt. Don’t be too picky about how much you pay or how pleasant it is to work for some of these companies. The outfits that typically will hire newbies low-ball, require fax-backs, and micromanage you to the point of exasperation. But, tolerate this, because that is how you pay your dues and get your experience. Once you have 1000 signings under your belt, the higher paying Title companies will start to take you more seriously.

  1. Notary work isn’t rocket science. Unfortunately there is no training or test for ethical character, or competency. I believe you can be a first class signing agent with far less than 1000 signings and a lousy signing agent no matter how many you do. It’s just an excuse to low-ball pay and you get what you pay for.

  2. I am sending this out in lieu of the plethora of Contract Agreements that would keep me occupied for no pay. I refuse to fill out any more of them. If they don’t like what I stand for they can call someone else. I’m tired of having to continually “prove” myself after eight years!

    MY STANDARDS FOR HIRE

    1. CONTRACTS: My Commission IS my promise to follow the protocols of honesty, confidentiality, and propriety. I carry E&O insurance should I fail in any of these areas. I am INDEPENDENT…. I am not part of a “team”!

    2. ESSENTIAL CREDENTIALS: My “ONE SIZE FITS ALL” package: a. Resume
    b. Notary Commission
    c. Backgroundcheckletter(SoS) d. E&O insurance ($50,000).
    e. Bond
    f. W-9
    g. Fee Schedule

    3. DRIVER’S LICENSE: I do not provide copies of my driver’s license. It is not a handout for a whole world of agents AND their employees to access. (See the underlined portions of the Secretary of State letter attached).

    4. BACKGROUND CHECK: My California Notary Commission is proof that I have passed both the California DOJ and the FBI CRIMINAL background checks required by California law for Notaries. I’ve already paid for this one. I will not pay for additional background checks. I am confident that the State of California will not allow anyone without a CLEAN background check to become a notary!

    5. FAX BACKS: All too often, “THERE ARE ONLY 10 DOCUMENTS!” turns out to be 25 PAGES! This means: Return immediately to my office to do fax backs, tie up my whole next morning waiting for “Quality Control” to okay, and then, go back out to drop the documents… all for the same pay? “NO!”

    6. SIGNING RECORD: My eight-year signing record is perfect! My aim is to keep it that way! I do not appreciate “HELICOPTER” agents who hover, and expect blow-by-blow updates through every step of the process, with threats of cuts in pay! I AM TRUSTING THAT YOU WILL PAY ME FOR MY WORK… PLEASE TRUST THAT I WILL DO THE WORK YOU ARE PAYING ME FOR!

    7. NET DUE 30 DAYS: I do not have recurring monthly invoices for any given agency. Therefore, I require payment on a “one job at a time” basis. Payment beyond 30 days is absolutely unacceptable.

  3. I appreciate your words of wisdom. I don’t have your experience and will take your view under advisement Sounds good to me. I’m learning that even though some jobs are the same “type”, they may require more time than another. Most companies will check distance from o ne zip code to another, but that is not accurate and it cannot calculate the time required to reach the actual destination. I have had several assignments that I was not adequately compensated for the amount of time I actually put into the prep, travel, delivery and shipping!! Thanks for your insight.

  4. I AM A CERTTIFIED NOTARY SIGNING AGENT AND A MOBILE NOTARY. I HAVE COMPLETED ABOUT 100 CLOSING. THE ONE THING
    THAT BOTHERS ME THE MOST IS THAT I WORKED FOR 3 NOTARY SERVICES, ACCEPTED THE ASSIGNEBTS ABD AGREED TI A CIBTACT
    OA A CERTAIN ANOUNT. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CONTACT THEN WITH E-NAILS, BUT THEY DO NOT ANSWER AND HAVE
    NOT PAID ME FOR THE SERVICES I RENDERED. NOTARIES DO NOT WORK FOR FREE, AND WHEN YOU ACCEPT AN ASSIGNENT AND AGREE TO A CERTAIN AMOUNT AND DO NOT GET PAID, THE IS UNACCEPTABLE. ACCORDING TO LAW THE AMOUNT YOU AGREED TO FOR PAYMENT IS
    A VALID CONTRACT AND YOU CAN EITHER GET A COLLECTION AGENCY OR AN ATTORNEY. THE COMPANIES WHO DID NOT PAY ME ARE: NOTARYGO, NOTARIES EXPRESS NATIONAL LOAN CLOSINGS AND AMERICAN SIGNING CONNECTIONS. I WILL NOT WORK FOR THENM AGAIN.
