NO I don't but they did treat me right on the initial svc. They work off a 25 % off of what we contractors bill them. I was wondering about their pay times and such.

Did some work for them sometime ago. Don't recall any major issues. They just couldn't give us the volume of work to make them a priority.

Volume is always an issue...
It's hard to deal with the bulls*** without it..
That is what made 5B so rough...

I run my own company because I am unemployable. I have always been cynical that my boss or upper management really knew what they were doing, and I have a very anti "step and fetchit" attitude. If your company can give me the volume, human being like pay rates, and can at least appear to not be lying and robbing me to my face, I can make a few adjustments.But companies that give me a job or two every season and then burn down my phone bank for updates go to the back of the line. Five Brothers must be run by former government beaurecrats, that's all I can think of.

The bros were absolutely the bottom of the barrel. invoice cutting without notice and rediculous time frames were it. Then they went to a cost estimator and I told them goodbye. I estimated 150 to rehang a wooden gate door with lags and new hinges they said 50 I said NO I forgot to include travel time that bid is no longer valid they said ok 150 I repeated NO and they had a fit.

Know what you mean! I just got one back. Bid to rehang a gutter and to clean gutters for $125 thatt`s like a $100 after discount. And they come back with per govt. cost estimate of $55 and some change!!

So after discount I`m making like $49 and some change. I be apeaaling it like the others they sent!

I like 5Bros. I regularly have to put their reps in check with a little logic but overall my experience with them has been great. I hate wasting the time to "mentor" their reps but we all need a few good laughs each day. Keeps it interesting.

5 Bros are suckers for paying mileage,love the out of area work orders.They pay on time but still pain in the butt.

I have been on probation with them over 2 months and yet still 10 work orders a week and 2 of them a week are always mileage.

They always adjust my bids and I always turn in late work orders.They give me crap and I give it back.The problem for them is nobody up here wants to work for them,so they have to deal with me.Thats karma
