We went through the same garbage. Came down to the lady who processes the paper work was being an ass. Didnt like my signature and wanted me to redo it .I parted ways . Do not have time for people who thinks the world revolves around them.

Awesome I just laughed my @ss off for a good ten minutes. Out of the kindness of my heart I will tell you what you did wrong.


1. You put your faith in AMS
2. You took vendor training when you didn't even have equipment to do the work
3. You spent $1K on lawn equipment. Did you get a push mower and weed whip from Wally World. With the way these properties are your mower is going to blow up on the first property.
4. AMS pays $20.00 a cut before discount (20%) You will never make money. Why would you sign up to lose money?

Its "contractors" like you that give us preservation guys a bad name. Do yourself a favor and quit while you are only $1K behind. Thanks for tge good laugh though. FNG

Until you get a login, username and password for their system, no one at AMS can really help you, but when you do, they will usually assign you work orders pretty quickly. You can bet they did not wait for you to get equipment, hopefully they didn't assign the work to someone who was ready, or said he was. Also they may have assigned what they had to contractors surrounding your area, they don't wait around, for you, and you should not wait around for them, dig up some other work.

BREWtal but to the point thanks for the laugh. After a 14 hour day yesterday and a 10 hour one today that was what I needed . I am enjoying the ability to push back with a national on a project right now and I dont care if t hey pull it from me. Its VERY nice to be in the drivers seat !

You got decent lawn equipment for $1k that can handle these jacked up properties? LOL
The current company you are working for is raping you if you are only getting $20.00. Guys like you that accept these jacked up rates are what is killing this industry.

I was contacted by AMS via Crystal. Did the bs training. Never recieved any login or password but frankly im happy I didn't. After the webinar they held and they're expectations for lawn maintenance and other services there's no money to be made. I joined because I noticed Ams was taking over some of my other properties via post sale.


Never do anything on just a word get in writing imo
