First Rate Field Services

Hey Everyone Just wanted to say I have really enjoyed this forum. Been doing P&P for awhile now and couldn't imagine being in this field without somewhere like this to go and search for advice, get ideas and even get a laugh in once in a while from these threads. I have been receiving work from this company for about 5 months they cover Altisource work in my area and haven't had many problems so far other than pay isn't the best but checks are steadily getting farther behind so I mentioned it today and the conversation got pretty intense. Was curious if anyone else had dealings with them or any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Every time I get a new excuse. I started using the strategy that I can't afford to complete the work on time if I don't recieve pay on time and that went over like a terd in the punch bowl. Today I said these 25 grass cuts due tomorrow will now have to wait until I recieve the check that was supposed to be mailed last Thursday. That's when it got interesting! Lol

You are correct I actually tried to go back and erase this after we worked out our differences and couldn't figure out how but i have been very well pleased with First Rate and have nothing but positive things to say about this company.

I just started working for FRFS, and I've actually never done this kind of work before. Not many properties to maintain around here for now. Went out and did my first grass cuts and stuff last week and found one of the places is an absolute disaster. So, I guess I get to do a major clean, including renting a bobcat to load the crap in the yard.. Interesting start already here, haha... I haven't read too many complaints about First Rate so far.. Have there been any new developments since this thread started? The only thing I was curious about initially was that, I responded to their craigslist ad, then the next day that ad was flagged and removed.. I thought that was kind of odd. The only issue I'm having so far is that I have a hard time hitting their due dates around my busy schedule of running a commercial cleaning company. To make the loop to hit the 4 houses I have on the list, it's over 200 miles. So, my day is completely eaten up by the time I'm done, while my business sits on hold.. Hopefully I'll get it all straightened out soon, haha...

First STAY OFF OF CRAIGSLIST.
Second if Craigslist is where you receive work then you should probably sell your equipment and stick with your other business.
Third don't offer to cover such a large coverage area if you have an issue covering it. It doesn't matter if you only have 1 property 200 miles away or 50 properties. They expect you to complete that because YOU offered to cover that area.
