We used these if the box needs to be in a specific location not on the stud.

Not at all. You have a help sit on a bucket and assemble 100 boxes including bond screws. Then just screw them to the studs.

Exactly, that is why real companies could never use these. You big company guys have no clue as to real life situations.

I've got very little help and yet we use both, of course we don't do huge projects here but it doesn't take long to screw the brackets in where you want them and then pop the boxes on as the wire gets pulled. It might take a bit longer but not too much

That's not true.

The brackets are easy as hell, any size company should use them.

I don't pre-fab them, I just screw the bracket on the stud, then push the 1900 box thru it from behind, and put the mud ring on it from the front, then tighten the screws. It takes seconds and works well.

All companies use all methods of installing j boxes even the cheesy nail in crap.
At any given moment the owner or owners rep changes their mind and you've got to adapt and overcome to still stay on schedule.
Maybe you've never been on a big job with real electrical systems?
