Red face Need some advice

Hello, my fellow PP’ERS- I have 2 questions every one today before the storm hits!
1) When you all get work orders dose your nationals require you to do everything to the property or do you get to pick and choose the services you want to do because we are with (AMS) and they will not assign us property’s unless we do everything my guys don’t like doing landscaping for what AMS pays but because they want the other work they do it and when we have run into other vendors with AMS they say No they have plenty of work we want to do?
2) Now has anyone worked for A2Z we are thinking about doing work for them as well however my electrician will NOT BACK FEED a property but I keep telling him that is what A2Z requires us to do? He stated that he won’t do it on his license?? He says NO NO NO any suggestions?
Hey I even tried taking him out to dinner just a waste of $85.00 for crabs & beer???? Just to hear NO again?
All advice is greatly appreciated

Your electrician is right. End of story.

Its illegal, and your insurance company WILL NOT cover a claim if thats what you are doing and burn a house down.

DON"T DO IT!


As for A2Z, I never had any pay issues.... but they are really cheap.
You can be sure they are making a lot more on the jobs than what you are doing. As is AMS.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Don't ever think "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence" in the P&P field.

Had lots of huffing and puffing by Nationals over backfeeding, but they know they can't force you on it. It is true regarding your liability too. We have come across property that the previous occupants had sabotaged the wiring. My guys were alert enough to catch it, but if we had been one of those who were backfeeding, they may have been seriously injured, and my insurance wouldn't have covered a thing.

A2Z? Lower than usual pay rates, clunky website, not a lot of volume for us.

I don't like doing all jobs either. Not because I don't want the work but because I'm not comfortable doing every job. Although I may know how to do it, I most likely can't do it as good as others. What would you guys recommend on jobs like this? Decline them?

What is so bad about AMS? I heard about the discount but then I found out if you complete the qc checklist and get a perfect score you are not discount and $715 for a initial service doesn't seem too bad if you can knock it out in a few hours

Do you work with AMS? I'm looking to get a few good companies to work with.
