Safeguard grasscut training

I was just wondering if anyone attended their "mandatory" grasscut training classes,they have 3 dates and locations setup.I just love the fact they want us to take a day off and drive 2 hours away for this for free,what happened to online classes??

There is not one person that works at Screwguard that is qualified to train me any one on my crews or any other professional contractor on here. Besides how much training do you need to leave a Screwguard property in the shape that I see them all in. I can leave any place with grass 4 ft high I don't need training for that. The only reason they are not paying you is if they did you would no longer be a contractor you would become an employee (that and they are a bunch of cheap ba$tards). No wonder they are recruiting on CL more hoops to jump through for less money. Sign me up!!
What happens if every contractor boycotts this Hmmmmmmmmm

My company does such a good job of mowing we are qualified to mow at the SG golden palace.
Not bragging, stating facts.

IF I was still doing P&P grass cuts I wouldn't go to their "training".

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.

Everything that company does is a dog and pony show. So glad I do not contract with them. They keep calling and emailing me and I just keep telling them I'm not interested in financing their company. What the hell are they going to train you to do? 90% of the companies in this business are landscapers by profession what could Screwguards trainers possibly teach any of them. Oh wait a minute that's right they are losing the pros because they want paid, this is training for the new regime recruited from CL running around with walmart push mowers in the trunk or yard mans on their trailers. My bad train on!

was at a property the other day trashing it out. Guy shows up and says were in there way. I`m like really been here for like 4 hrs. They were there do an initial cut.I walk to front of house to see what kind of of o turn mower they had and almost laughed at them.they had three push mower and four people working on the yard. Guy said he had been in business for sixteen years. Not sure how you pay four people riding in one truck(they were a 1 1/2 from home).

It may not be an exact translation but in Craigslist speak this means: "I haven't had a steady job for 16 years!"

That's an easy one. SG even tells you how to make that work...VOLUME!
I bet he cuts 175 yards a week..hmm...that'll be...carry the 9...add the remainder... $4375 a week. WOW! big money...except he's got 4 men...subtract that...and that... and he's driving almost 2000 miles a week, so subtract that...he'll clear $200 for the week. LOL
