Here we go again.

Look like we are going to have some free time for a while. We got a new preservation coordinator for our area and she is a piece of work.

I just a few days she has declared that the CY pay for "natural debris" will be half of what it has always been and what all other coordinators have been paying us. She has also decided that our CY counts are less than half of what me and everyone else I have had look at them says they are. Then she simply decided that jobs that we have always got about $2,400 for are only worth $720. She will not pay extra for over sized houses. She refuses to see filth of any kind in the pictures.

So beginning next week we will be changing our focus to pursuing more direct work and less work from her.

Hopefully the practice of changing coordinators every month will solve this problem for us soon.

Yep their reps are horrible. Two or three years ago I swear they must have changed their pay structure to their reps to include a large incentive based on how little they can get away paying the contractors. They must also have a little competition to see how many times they can get you to go back to a house for bogus reasons.

You guessed correct. Up until last week we have had few issues with them. It is funny how things work out. I have two brokers offer me direct work and this happens. I was wondering how we would be able to handle two new clients who would potentially pay more $ and faster and then I now I have the time to follow up on them.

Hopefully this is divine providence.

Any time you can bypass a national or regional............ its a good day.

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.

Agreed. Four years ago nobody would talk to us because we were just another new company looking for work with no background or experience to back up our claims. Now I am surprised at how receptive many of the same places are.

That is exactly what I am doing. That is why I am getting the free time. The coordinator in question has been doing this for five years now so she has an answer for everything. All of them intended to disarm you and make you question your bidding methods so she can beat down the price.

I calmly show her the math behind the bidding and she gets pissed and then starts declaring that the price paid per CY is lower to get the price down. So then I tell her I am not going to budge on the per CY price when I know for a fact she is dead wrong.

She finally got mad an reassigned the job.

On the next job I bid a little over $1,900 and she countered with a price that is below the flat rate for Cyprexx. What a maroon. Like I would haul of 60+ Cy of debris for $320. Know I know there is a guy out there who will do that so I told her to let him have it.

I find out tomorrow if she was able to find him.

She is as sweet a honey when you talk to her on the phone, but her emails are abrasive to say the least. She dictates to you and gets pissed when you calmly say, "No."

You just described an "employer" speaking to an employee....

The nationals seem to love to blur or destroy the line between employee and independent contractor...SG did this constantly to a firm I worked for previously.
