screw safeguard grass cuts

1st day doing them. none are ready we cleaned up yards to get them prepared because the one we did yesterday was a whole 1/2 inch high, was told should have edged. They want a lot of pictures simply not worth time and they kept me close 20 today all within 10 mile radius just nothing needed to be done, rep says always something that needs to be done, not paying trip charges fu have 228 sitting in open orders not doing them

I love in the training manual where they want to see "tire marks"....Really? Tire marks? I'll show you some tire marks. I love how they have us cutting grass here already and want to know why we didn't have 140 properties done and uploaded by 7:30 tonight. Try to tell them that we have snow here in some spots still and they don't know what to say. They are out of touch and are having trouble filling their coverage areas. People are smartening up and they've burned their bridges. They had to fold to me by giving in to MY coverage area and not theirs because they only had one other guy for our zone. They may be recruiting someone to take our spot, but the guys who will jump through their hoops just aren't out there. Luckily, we know how to play their game and know the short cuts.

Did any of you guys get the e mail about having a "training" meeting at a property. I got the e mail late monday night and it says something like there will be a mandatory vendor meeting on thursday to go over the expectations for the upcoming grass cut season the training will be held at a property that is active and it will be in the field so dress appropriatly. And you Must have 2 members of your company there with one being the managing member of the company, ive been doing this since 07 and ive never had to deal with this much crap for so little reward.
