Ams

Ams contacted us recently. Said they needed contractors in my area blah blah blah, then she says I would have to go through "training" which she would never describe really what kind of training. Anyone ever had to do this? What is this training they speak of.

Most likely paperwork training. Just a guess.

Good luck, they want you do dedicate days weeks and maybe a month riding around with one of their crews. They have mainly Safeguard properties.
They use PPW. I rode around with them for 1 day and they werent showing me anything I didn't already know except the PPW and after a few properties I got the hang of it. So if you can take away from running your business then it will work out fine, but if not get ready to spend lots of free time making no money riding around with them.

They're training consists of a webinar training. After webinar you need to complete a on site training with your area field rep.

Also they want photos of your vehicles abd trailers with vin so can decide who can handle what work.

I did a few jobs. Took 4 months to get bad because they tried to deny my debris overages.

They want perfection for pennies on the dollar.

I'd advise to stay away.

It is also my understanding that AMS has their own in-house crews. They tend to Cherry pick so you get the dumps as well as the properties out in BFE....

IMHO....

All hell is about to break loose in the PPI do yourselves all a favor and go to these training sessions...

I have said this before and I will say it again very loud...
[COLOR="Red"][SIZE="7"]PAY YOURSELF. YES KEEP HOURS AND PAY YOURSELF AT THE END OF THE WEEK WRITE YOURSELF A CHECK!!!!!!!!!
if you are to come out ahead when the SHTF you will need to produce payroll records...
If you do not know how to do this contact me...it is part of the consultation package....

Remember when things are looked at it is the totality of the contract not just one or two issues or clauses in the contract it is the entire contract...I believe the email states...you must attend...go attend...

They actually sent a guy to meet me at a property

and we walked through and discussed the requirements and the things inspectors would be looking for. I don't know if they still do that or not, since they have the videos and webinars now.

Started work for AMS in June

They lost our June WO's saying they were not approved, what do you mean not approved, we didnt just wake up one morning and go to a random house for initial services. Next we just fought with them over the last 3 weeks about our July invoice, tried to cut 300.00 + out of our check for random reasons. We cleaned 10 CY out of one yard and they did not want to pay until we told them that the officer that came by the house said that he would submit a written affidavit that our crew removed debris. Still have not received one dime from them, although we are assured time and time again it will be here next week.

We have tons of work orders sitting that they want results for, we told them when we get paid they will get their work orders completed. Very poor software, does not work sometimes, very poor communication. If you have a problem you can never reach anyone, when they have a problem they will blow up your phone and e-mail.

Just my 2 cents.
