Allowable time for completion of WOs
It has been my experience that you are typically given between 2 and 5 days to complete a work order, depending on the work being performed.
I met a guy who is just starting out and he has told me that one of the biggest issues he has is that he is required to complete all work orders for bids requests, recuts and routine maids the same day he gets them.
He is working for a regional that claims to have a direct contract with four banks. He told me they are Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and one other I cannot recall.
I know some you have worked directly for these banks so you are familiar with the timelines they require.
The area he is required to cover takes about 2 hours in good traffic to go from one end to the other.
Same day service seems a bit extreme to me, not to mention quite unreasonable.
So is this regional blowing smoke or is this type of timeline they require?
