  • Field Nation has changed my life! 👍🏼 Sep 19, 2019

    By Killah Wheels
    I can’t speak highly enough of Field Nation, because it’s literally changed my life. Working through Field Nation has given me the ability to work for myself without all of the hassles. I think the 1.5% they charge to insure you in a job site is fair and removes some of the headache of being a business owner. The 10% fee they charge IS a little much, but at the end of the day I’m okay with it due to how streamlined the website (and app) that Field Nation uses is.. The fact that they conveniently keep track of your income and take care of the W-2 for you is another headache removed. Also, they pay you two times a week and you can’t beat that! I’ve also picked up other jobs on FN that I normally wouldn’t have heard about, but am totally capable of doing which allows me to make even that much more money. I currently do CCTV full time, all through FN but I’ve also picked up lighting audits for major stores, setting up store displays and whatnot for extra pocket cash. All in all, I’m very happy that I’ve jumped on the Field Nation bandwagon and it’s changed my life for the better as I don’t have to punch in and out and be a slave for anyone else, ever again. - Chris W., Vermont
  • Field nation / customer Mar 8, 2022

    By techsRus
    Field nation has been wonderful straightforward and just absolutely on top of making sure technicians have what they need just a support from them is awesome👍 Now on the other subject is the customer your doing the work for. So let me say this about one I had to deal with called interweave I got job sites from them that required a spotter so I brought my spotter and we both had to contact this customer for directions on a few things that weren’t in the work order. My spotter/worker tell me hat the customer is asking him if he will go work for him directly and he will give better pay this is called (POACHING) and just plain out disrespectful for any person or company. I soon came to find put this was not the first time. So I tell everyone please be careful with that company.

    Aside from 2 items listed below, it’s a great app. However, synchronization is off by a good bit, so that accurate time-and-GPS-stamped check-in’s are “iffy”. Second, their messaging feature is setup backwards, so that your comments show-up (small labeling) as yours, BUT under the RECIPIENTS name and photo. It makes communication and documentation very difficult and disjointed. NEVER should that be the case. Their comments should show with their name & profile pic, THEN, it should show who its directed to. Right? Your name, your icon, your comment. Simple. Otherwise, placing a persons photo next to someone else’s comment—in a comment by comment format, defeats the purpose of simple, at-a-glance identification of who said what, & in what order. It is, in fact, misleading and confusing. Aside from these things I like it. BTW: I think person’s with positions called out in the app anywhere, including the SOW, should be reachable by phone via hyperlink AFTER the job has been assigned to you. Remember, the apps purpose is to facilitate the timely and professional completion of jobs, right? I shouldn’t have to shuffle through papers or apps to find and dial a contact. So. There you have it: My “2 cents worth”

    Since the most recent large update the app has been plagued with connnection issues. I am often told cant connect to servers. Rety, after retry its the same issue. If I uninstall and reinstall I'm good for a day or two. Other than this the app is great. It would be nice to edit hours here versus the actual website. Issue went away and then returned last week 6/1/22

    Best platform like this I have used so far! App could use some improvements: Frequently outdated info will appear for several seconds until the page refreshes. This has caused several moments of panic thinking I forgot to check in for a work order, only to have it refresh and show that, yes, I had checked in correctly. Additional options to sort and filter available work is sorely needed. That being said, the interface is good and all of the core functions work fairly reliably.
  • Double booking occurs. Assignments Sep 15, 2018

    By TennStarrDoug
    Come without lead assignment. When you perform the assignment in total without a lead and need additional time to complete the paperwork, there is reluctance to make adjustments or mark the provider as having performed the lead satisfactorily for future lead consideration and compensation. Don't attempt to punish me for a late Astarte when the lead is a no-show and the manager declines to authorize a start. We appreciate the work, and would appreciate some polite consideration in response. One additional matter please. The messaging and notification systems are not relational in that a matter cleared in one notification remains pending in another.
  • Almost the best.....But May 10, 2018

    By Jay Kat
    The App is Great but I’ve found an issue with the “Agreements” between the “Buyer“ (the organization that wants you to work) & the “Provider” (the technicians doing the work). As a provider if you don’t live up to your end of the arrangement you are monetarily penalized, But if the Buyer fails to live up to their end of the arrangements (to pay you) in a timely manner or at all their nothing anyone can do. The personnel who run the app (Field Nation) state “ We have our account managers working on it” and it dies there. There are NO monetary penalties for the buyer. So basically your screwed.

    I love the app and the support!!! Great job guys.... I would like it if it was better about opening back up to what I was doing in the app... lately I've been having trouble with it always opening to "available" jobs page instead of what I was doing and then I have to navigate back to where I was sometimes 10+ times in a single job... this improvement could save me a lot of time while on site!!! Thanks for all you guys do!!! *Update* Seems to be keeping my spot much better now...

    Often in the field of IT we find ourselves seeking addition avenues to use our skills to make some extra cash. This is the app. If i feel like scheduling a full week of work, and just picking and pulling here and there for jobs on the side, this app is always reliable and the customer service is outstanding. Tons of new features now added to app and website that make life so much easier. All levels of skill can use, full or part time work available. Every IT guy should have this app for side jobs, or techs to make a living off of. Absolute must have!

    It seems like this application is still constantly having issues and newest issues is Can't connect to the servers. Now it does not matter if it is on WiFi or cellular data, just gets to the first screen with the connection error. Coding and TESTING needs to be much better. Will see if the problems continue as it has been multiple days now that the newest June version has done this.

    The app is no longer loading, just shows the "F" and is not going anywhere past it. Updated, did not help, clearing cache and data did not help either. Uninstalled and reinstalled - still hanging at the loading screen and would not load. It's going to be fun going out on jobs. The app is a requirement, but it "don't work!"
  • Too high of fees and way too long to get paid Feb 12, 2021

    By notbz4uqt
    When I first joined Field Nation it was better. They still had the 10% fee but they would pay every Friday for work orders completed during the week prior. Now they introduced this “terms” stupidity that can take over 45 days to get paid for a job I’ve done today. In addition now they offered the option to charge another 3% fee to get your funds sooner. So essentially they are charging the life line of their business 13% as fees if you opt into the second tier. Total JOKE!! I called and tried to negotiate the 10% down to 8% and they wouldn’t budge. I told them I wouldn’t do as much business as I was on their platform and I’ve held to my word to 1 year later. I charge a lot higher fees then the regular technician because of my experience and background. The only time I do jobs on Field Nation is when a company calls me asking my availability and the only platform they use is Field Nation. If it wasn’t for that I’d close my account and never look back. Horrible platform and a rip off to the lifelines that provided them revenue.

    The app still has a problem going beyond the loading screen. I have to constantly uninstall the app and re-install to do my job function for the work order. (Upload photos, keeping real time updates, etc). Also at random times when I'm not doing a work order, Android is telling me Field Nation is working in the background or trying to access my GPS. What is this app doing?
  • It was a great app until they updated their pay policy Sep 24, 2020

    By chipsareus
    It’s a great app for work but don’t expect a payment for almost a month after you finish your work. It used to be that once the orders are approved you would be paid the very next Tuesday or Friday. Then they updated to only Friday payments which was a hassle because only if your work order was approved by Friday you would get paid the next Friday. Now they have added another 14 days waiting period. So lets say you happen to work on Monday and your project manager miss the Friday deadline to approve tour order then you have to wait another 14 days-after approval and wont get paid until the Friday after that. So thats like a month before you get paid. Good luck paying your bills and cost out of your pocket for a month before any money would be paid. They keep increasing wait time and commission they take and this is how they treat their workers. Thinking about going back to workmarket since you don't have to pay commission and you can get instant payments after work is completed.

    I have to uninstall and reinstall for EVERY JOB this is not an exaggeration. Clearing cache and data doesn't help. And like other reviews, when it does decide to work constantly synchs and runs constantly in background. Im not sure what its doing it background, its not uploading pics successfully I know that.
  • Mar 14, 2022

    By Phillip Solis
    Constantly has tasks running in the background, and syncs throughout the entire day and night. They charge both you and the customer for work orders (shady), and won't let you use your own insurance unless you list them on it....I don't have to do this for any other company I contract for. It's unfortunate because I have to use them to fill in some gaps. I'm impatiently waiting for a better contracting app/service to breakthrough. UPDATE 3/14/22: App won't open unless I uninstall and reinstall.
  • Terrible, buggy app Sep 14, 2021

    By Bmack037
    This app has a ton of bugs and every time they release an update more bugs appear with no fixes to old bugs. They remove simple features like being able to copy and paste a phone or tracking number sent through messages. They also have drastically reduced what you can do in the app so you get redirected to a mobile site. Right now, just the bugs I’m experiencing: App randomly logs me out, app is claiming I need a background check and the company said everyone is getting that error, when completing “tasks” I get a pop up system error, it’s laggy and sometimes won’t refresh unless I force close the app. It never copies the address the first time when you click it to open on Google maps, so you have to switch back to the app and click it again. Among others. Most of those glitches have been around for months if not over a year.
  • Used to be better a year ago Nov 7, 2021

    By Abighz
    A year ago they started selling “7 & 14 day payment term” to buyers and started charging techs a fee for getting their earning immediately. They call it “PRO” account feature. When you take a job with 14 day terms and the buyer approves on day of job you get paid 2 Fridays from then. If you complete job on Monday and they don’t approve by Friday it turns in to upwards of 25 days. Some buyers don’t approve for 2 weeks. It’s bull! Instead of making the buyer accountable for their own means of paying techs they give buyers a period of time to pay and offer to pay the tech themselves for a extra charge. Bull! Now they are selling buyers the feature that techs must have at least 3 w-2 employees to work for them. One previous buyer I have done hundreds of service calls now requires I have at least 3 w-2 employees. Bad move. Field Nation is going to loose so much money for this.
  • Mar 1, 2022

    By Franklyn Deschamps
    This app needs a lot of work. Maybe they should use that 13.9% fee they charge for the total workorder cost (Yes, including expenses you need to get reimbursed on) and hire some competent UX programmers. Having to give a reason for every single counteroffer is useless and time-consuming. When a buyer (company) sends a message to the provider (techs), it sends the message to all that applied. Not being able to counteroffer on bundles needs to be fixed. Crashes when I type descriptive notes.

  • Totally different way of getting work. Jul 6, 2018

    By T0mmy75
    I have to say as a contractor, this app is a game changer. I am doing so many different things that it makes work super fun now. You get paid out hella quick from the platform too. If you’re skeptical, don’t hesitate and try it. I am sure you’ll like it. I use it all the time and it may become my primary source of finding work. The higher your rankings, the more work will get forwarded to you and you eventually build relationships with the vendors. It’s a really cool tool for finding quick work.

As a provider if you don’t live up to your end of the arrangement you are monetarily penalized, But if the Buyer fails to live up to their end of the arrangements (to pay you) in a timely manner or at all their nothing anyone can do.

    I have used the Field Nation app since day. It is pretty much my source of income. I have stuck with it through the different versions. With each update the app is getting better. It has quirks and needs a restart occasionally,but overall the currently iteration is fairly clean. It would be nice to be able to chronologically order your job assignment dates. Sometimes when assigned 10+ jobs it makes it hard to decipher your schedule for the day or week.

    Great app. geared towards requesting & working on W.O.s as oppose to the site with full fuctionality like test taking and forum sounding boards. I prefer to use while on the road instead of my laptop, its easy to understand and well laid out U.I. with all relevant info quickly displayed all while being conveniently accessed. Def beats the old days of having to print out W.O.s fill them out and signed off on just so they can be scanned and sent back a few hours later, meanwhile you must separately uploaded any pics and docs, that take even more valuable time. Now all made simple with the app. With that said there is always room for improvement. I would like to see more options in the option/setting tab ie. making adjustments to your profile, copy and paste ability specifically mail tracking #s, formatting functions, and a more modern look.
  • Suggestion from a user Jan 20, 2020

    By Henryp21
    I like the app! Would love to see the following feature, when assigned a multi site job I cannot enter your map it would be great to have it linked to google maps see my assigned location able to navigate GPS from map and as I complete locations, points on maps would turn green to let me know that site number has been completed. On a negative notes I’m still very frustrated that pictures take so long to upload and the app keeps closing on you as I’m working.

    Recent versions of the app have been pretty buggy. Currently i cannot collect signatures. The app forces the screen to rotate after clicking "sign off" at the bottom then fails and goes back to the work order's main screen. Downloading attachments usually fails. permissions issue (may be issue with my PDF reader Xodo?)? Sometimes the app gets caught in some programming loop and flips between highlighted sections of screen real fast or repeats messages lots of times.
  • Field nation / customer Mar 8, 2022

    By techsRus
    Field nation has been wonderful straightforward and just absolutely on top of making sure technicians have what they need just a support from them is awesome👍 Now on the other subject is the customer your doing the work for. So let me say this about one I had to deal with called interweave I got job sites from them that required a spotter so I brought my spotter and we both had to contact this customer for directions on a few things that weren’t in the work order. My spotter/worker tell me hat the customer is asking him if he will go work for him directly and he will give better pay this is called (POACHING) and just plain out disrespectful for any person or company. I soon came to find put this was not the first time. So I tell everyone please be careful with that company.

    Aside from 2 items listed below, it’s a great app. However, synchronization is off by a good bit, so that accurate time-and-GPS-stamped check-in’s are “iffy”. Second, their messaging feature is setup backwards, so that your comments show-up (small labeling) as yours, BUT under the RECIPIENTS name and photo. It makes communication and documentation very difficult and disjointed. NEVER should that be the case. Their comments should show with their name & profile pic, THEN, it should show who its directed to. Right? Your name, your icon, your comment. Simple. Otherwise, placing a persons photo next to someone else’s comment—in a comment by comment format, defeats the purpose of simple, at-a-glance identification of who said what, & in what order. It is, in fact, misleading and confusing. Aside from these things I like it. BTW: I think person’s with positions called out in the app anywhere, including the SOW, should be reachable by phone via hyperlink AFTER the job has been assigned to you. Remember, the apps purpose is to facilitate the timely and professional completion of jobs, right? I shouldn’t have to shuffle through papers or apps to find and dial a contact. So. There you have it: My “2 cents worth”

    This app has been around for quite some time now and has been extremely helpful in aiding with working on various jobs I've been assigned. When it comes to sorting through the various jobs however; it would be even more helpful if the developers would enable a swipe feature so that the providers can quickly accept or reject buyer's request. Also it would be helpful to enhance the filter. I'd like to see the option to filter on types of work, number of request, and buyer's previously worked with.
  • Decent but could have a more intuitive user interface Jun 7, 2019

    By Skeewash
    An example would be when I am checking new work posted I go to notifications in the app. When I click on a new work order and view it I cannot just go back, I have to start all over and perform three steps just to get back to the same area. Another counter productive item is when items are assigned it creates another notification. If a work order isn't assigned to you it shouldn't even be visible. In field nation if a work order is assigned to someone else you are unable to open it. With that being the case why show assigned work and waste notifications. Assigned work orders should be automatically removed rather then have a tech waste time searching through them. The interface doesnt have an easy way to search a certain provider for work orders or really any type of search feature. The app could be so much more with a little tweaking and adding a few things here and there. If a work order is placed as a bundle you cannot make a counter offer on it. Things as simple as that should always stay the same. I will go back an forth with providers they ask me to submit a counter I say its placed as a bundle I cannot, and around and around we go.

    Been using the app for 5 years now. Used to run great. Lately i get messages that it can't connect to the server. I'm able to see my work orders but have difficulty checking in or making any updates to a work order. Worse if you are working with a work order that is bundled with others. Used to be quick and snappy. But the website used to be quick also. Lately neither are. The app is just worse. Fees also need adjusting.

    Latest version 21.11.0.33 (as listed next to Legal in main menu) doesn't work on Samsung Tab Pro 7 has major issues! Best example: I have a work order with 50 sites. On a phone the mapping features (seeing all 50 sites, and tapping, or pinching on screen) works fine. I get to see a blue dot (my location), and all the addresses pertaining to multi site work order. This feature doesn't work on the same version of FN app on my tablet. Also, too many bugs to mention. New ver keeps crashing!
  • My experience with Field nation Aug 22, 2018

    By juan001xyghh
    I like the concept and easy to use of this app/system, that is the only reason I am giving this review two stars. In this platform it is not what you know but rather who you know since getting the first job is almost impossible ( I even offer my work for free in exchange for a honest review so I could get some work later). I have over 20 year experience starting from cabling, system administrator, Network admin, etc. I took a couple of test to improve my profile, although I didn’t do the background check which I didn’t need for the jobs I requested. I could keep going but this might be enough to help the next person not to waste his time. Thank you.
  • No IPad support Mar 8, 2022

    By macabreTHPS
    Ive been using this app for a long time. I use this for work and my business as a buyer/registered service provider account. The issue is orientation/display resolution. It only shows iPhone orientation and resolution. Not acceptable especially if you need to go green and use an ipad to sign documents/PDFs which practically every buyer account on the network has a need for documentation. This app needs to move to the 21st century and update this. It would be 5 star if ipad support was a thing for field nation. Painful to give a great platform a poor review. But unless something is said it isn’t going to change.

    It seems like this application is still constantly having issues and newest issues is Can't connect to the servers. Now it does not matter if it is on WiFi or cellular data, just gets to the first screen with the connection error. Coding and TESTING needs to be much better. Will see if the problems continue as it has been multiple days now that the newest June version has done this.

    The app is no longer loading, just shows the "F" and is not going anywhere past it. Updated, did not help, clearing cache and data did not help either. Uninstalled and reinstalled - still hanging at the loading screen and would not load. It's going to be fun going out on jobs. The app is a requirement, but it "don't work!"
  • Too high of fees and way too long to get paid Feb 12, 2021

    By notbz4uqt
    When I first joined Field Nation it was better. They still had the 10% fee but they would pay every Friday for work orders completed during the week prior. Now they introduced this “terms” stupidity that can take over 45 days to get paid for a job I’ve done today. In addition now they offered the option to charge another 3% fee to get your funds sooner. So essentially they are charging the life line of their business 13% as fees if you opt into the second tier. Total JOKE!! I called and tried to negotiate the 10% down to 8% and they wouldn’t budge. I told them I wouldn’t do as much business as I was on their platform and I’ve held to my word to 1 year later. I charge a lot higher fees then the regular technician because of my experience and background. The only time I do jobs on Field Nation is when a company calls me asking my availability and the only platform they use is Field Nation. If it wasn’t for that I’d close my account and never look back. Horrible platform and a rip off to the lifelines that provided them revenue.

    The app still has a problem going beyond the loading screen. I have to constantly uninstall the app and re-install to do my job function for the work order. (Upload photos, keeping real time updates, etc). Also at random times when I'm not doing a work order, Android is telling me Field Nation is working in the background or trying to access my GPS. What is this app doing?
  • It was a great app until they updated their pay policy Sep 24, 2020

    By chipsareus
    It’s a great app for work but don’t expect a payment for almost a month after you finish your work. It used to be that once the orders are approved you would be paid the very next Tuesday or Friday. Then they updated to only Friday payments which was a hassle because only if your work order was approved by Friday you would get paid the next Friday. Now they have added another 14 days waiting period. So lets say you happen to work on Monday and your project manager miss the Friday deadline to approve tour order then you have to wait another 14 days-after approval and wont get paid until the Friday after that. So thats like a month before you get paid. Good luck paying your bills and cost out of your pocket for a month before any money would be paid. They keep increasing wait time and commission they take and this is how they treat their workers. Thinking about going back to workmarket since you don't have to pay commission and you can get instant payments after work is completed.

    I have to uninstall and reinstall for EVERY JOB this is not an exaggeration. Clearing cache and data doesn't help. And like other reviews, when it does decide to work constantly synchs and runs constantly in background. Im not sure what its doing it background, its not uploading pics successfully I know that.

    By Phillip Solis
    Constantly has tasks running in the background, and syncs throughout the entire day and night. They charge both you and the customer for work orders (shady), and won't let you use your own insurance unless you list them on it....I don't have to do this for any other company I contract for. It's unfortunate because I have to use them to fill in some gaps. I'm impatiently waiting for a better contracting app/service to breakthrough. UPDATE 3/14/22: App won't open unless I uninstall and reinstall.
  • Terrible, buggy app Sep 14, 2021

    By Bmack037
    This app has a ton of bugs and every time they release an update more bugs appear with no fixes to old bugs. They remove simple features like being able to copy and paste a phone or tracking number sent through messages. They also have drastically reduced what you can do in the app so you get redirected to a mobile site. Right now, just the bugs I’m experiencing: App randomly logs me out, app is claiming I need a background check and the company said everyone is getting that error, when completing “tasks” I get a pop up system error, it’s laggy and sometimes won’t refresh unless I force close the app. It never copies the address the first time when you click it to open on Google maps, so you have to switch back to the app and click it again. Among others. Most of those glitches have been around for months if not over a year.
  • Used to be better a year ago Nov 7, 2021

    By Abighz
    A year ago they started selling “7 & 14 day payment term” to buyers and started charging techs a fee for getting their earning immediately. They call it “PRO” account feature. When you take a job with 14 day terms and the buyer approves on day of job you get paid 2 Fridays from then. If you complete job on Monday and they don’t approve by Friday it turns in to upwards of 25 days. Some buyers don’t approve for 2 weeks. It’s bull! Instead of making the buyer accountable for their own means of paying techs they give buyers a period of time to pay and offer to pay the tech themselves for a extra charge. Bull! Now they are selling buyers the feature that techs must have at least 3 w-2 employees to work for them. One previous buyer I have done hundreds of service calls now requires I have at least 3 w-2 employees. Bad move. Field Nation is going to loose so much money for this.

    This app needs a lot of work. Maybe they should use that 13.9% fee they charge for the total workorder cost (Yes, including expenses you need to get reimbursed on) and hire some competent UX programmers. Having to give a reason for every single counteroffer is useless and time-consuming. When a buyer (company) sends a message to the provider (techs), it sends the message to all that applied. Not being able to counteroffer on bundles needs to be fixed. Crashes when I type descriptive notes.
