comment Sharing core repository and object mapping logic between Unit of Work methods
Thanks for pointing the problem with thread safety out! The reason I made the repos properties on the class was to eventually unit test the service, thanks for recommending the use of a factory for that.

comment Data Transfer Best Practices
Thanks for the additional advice and link to the pipes-and-filters pattern. I know I need to fix what I have now but I wanted to see if I could find some standards or patterns to apply to this problem rather than go off half-cocked solving it.

comment Data Transfer Best Practices
Thanks doc, my problem was "...sometimes job B starts too early..." In one process I did add a polling mechanism to check if the file is there before it starts so I'll probably add polling to the rest also. I'll also update the ftp process to download the files to temporary files and rename them upon completion.

comment Data Transfer Best Practices
@JeffO, They are all just triggered by scheduled jobs hoping for a file to be there. I was thinking of just including the ftp logic within each dependent program or doing something to listen to the folders and then start my data load process. Before I go off and start experimenting I want to see if there are any standard practices I can implement.

comment Which is Preferable: FirstName LastName or Forename Surname etc
I wouldn't store names as a single string. The reason being that single string names cause headaches when trying to create salutations for mail merges and email notifications/marketing.
