They have to keep one or two people happy so that they get good reviews.




You got that right Cleanup. Utter insanity reigns when it comes to that stuff.

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.

Seems like Five Brothers is the only company that tries doing things right and not just about profit. Hope they realize this and don't change too much.

I am a little worried as well, I have received a couple of initial grass cut orders and we still have 36" of snow cover on top of the grass. Seems asinine to me, but what isn't in this industry.

I don't mind uploading the 5 B's grass orders but other work involves WAY too much uploading time not to mention BS emails/calls etc....

I would recommend diversifying (don't put all of your eggs in 5 bros basket) From what I have seen their contractor turnover rate is high.

This 5 Bros must be a new company? These comments sure dont reflect the 5 Brothers I knew.
