Questions for Omniplex investigators

I recently accepted an offer as a contract investigator for Omniplex and I have a few couple questions for any investigators who might work for them. Ill be mainly working UNI and Excal which is fine but I told them I would only be able to work extremely part-time and they seemed perfectly fine with it.

I just wanted to know how it works when it comes to choosing your own work, is it true you can literally choose whatever you want?

I don’t see myself having the time to conduct drawn out UNI subject interviews so I would probably just stick with records and sources, is that doable? The paperwork says I only need to work one item per quarter and it seems to good to be true.

I accepted the offer to supplement my income a little bit and also have something to fall back on, if for some reason things went south in my current position. Oh, and I suppose I missed being a background investigator. There, I said it.

I was also surprised to see that they pay for mileage on top of a very good hourly rate which is way way more than I was making at Perspecta.

Most of the threads on here regarding Omniplex are pretty old so I just wanted some insight as to what things are like for the company in 2020. Thanks in advance

They’ll send you requests and you can pick through those to accept or deny but you have to be fast or they’re gone. I recently left them as they would often only send me work out of my area to choose from, even though I made it clear from the start I was not leaving my area due to 99% of my primary work being in my immediate area. I understand it’s probably all they could offer too.

So even if I wanted to just do a few records or source interviews here and there and never touch an ESI that wouldn’t be an issue? I was told there is plenty of work in my area but I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

Also, how timely are they with pay?

I would see all items types to choose from. They are usually separate. Those sources get snatched up fast as you can imagine…I can’t speak about the pay as I rarely accepted work.

Choose to have the alerts sent to your phone by text and email so you get notifications immediately.

They pay on Fridays. Depending on when you submit the voucher, it can be as early as the next Friday. I have never waited more than 10 working days.

Good luck. I have always been amazed that anyone working independent on those contracts can make any money after the time it takes to fullfill all the unrealistic “requirements”.

Thanks for the good luck! So far the paperwork I’ve been signing has a very very good hourly rate as opposed to a flat rate, the paperwork also states that the company reimburses for mileage, so this makes me happy. Either way I already work full time so this will be very part time for me, if I can make an extra couple hundred a month then it will work for me
