AFAS what a joke

I get a call from a realtor who has been waiting a coons age for AFAS to do a wint and with the sudden drop in temps his asset manager said go ahead and have a contractor do it. I get to the place and low and behold AFAS has done it 1 day after he had last been at t eh property. I begin to look and the property is NOT done right. (1) DRAINED water heater breaker NOT taped or turned OFF ! (2) master well house breaker not taped or shut off. So when the power is turned on ( this week by AFAS) these idiots would have flooded the house ! MInd you that I used to be an AFAS monkey and did enjoy the ride many many years when it was profitable ! I call the realtor and he says to do what I can and submit a bill. I did not blow the system just dumped antifreeze down the traps and taped the breakers and inspected !

Thoughts Does AFAS still require the following ??

(1) pictures of the water heater ( which was drained) breaker turned off and taped
(2) Pictures of the well tank or street water meter with the latter zip tied ??
(3) There are MANY other parts of this job that are sub standard or not done but that would just give away which botched job it is of theirs !

Sure seems like this one got pushed through without QC knowing what the hell they are looking at !

NOW the asset manager and AFAS are having a go around and afas is denying the wint was done wrong. I'd say if I was the asset manager, assuming they cant see the pictures on AFAS's website, you have 20 minutes to Email me ALL the pictures of this wint or you WILL reimburse us for the entire initial svc! Afas is so hypercritical if they need something from a vendor it is NOW but if they have to prove a point they just deny it and don't care. I'm GLAD I parted ways with these IDIOTS

depends on what you want your hair or making a heavy investment in sun tan lotion for your bald head in a few years ? It depends on your situation. If you really want to get trained hard then as I did network with all the realtors and do work for them alone Yes go to work for AFAS. Im just trying to say here that they have really botched this one up and wont accept the FACT that is was NOT done correctly.

Afas

They require:
Water heater showing hose connected for draining
Water main shut off and zip tied
Air compressor hooked up to water system
Air compressor hooked up to boiler system
Photo of compressor
Photo of hoses from compressor to systems
Photos showing antifreeze being applied
Photos showing toilets emptied before antifreeze
Photos showing wrap and sign applied to toilet
Photos showing signs on sinks, etc.
Photos showing breakers taped off

AFAS is not bad to work for. Some people are just bitter that they are the last decent company, but the first to require all of the new regulations... E&O, and such. I am with them @ 15 months, and I enjoy working with them.

AFAS is by far not one of the last decent companies to work for.. They are one of the crappiest to work for.. They rank up there with Safescrew, MCS, Cyprexx to name a few..I'm telling them to go pound sand as we speak

Lets be real and serious for a second.
Are there ANY decent, reliable nationals to work for any more?
Nearly all regionals I could ask the same question about.

I'm talking about companies that are fair to their contractors, pay in a decent amount of time, 30 days or less and don't unreasonably back charge.........

I couldn't find any that fit those standards...... I quit P&P 2 or 3 years ago.

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.

Lawn care and snow removal.

The answer is no. They all work for the same clients and have to play by the same rules. The whole thing is imploding in slow motion.

If you can work for AFAS and stay happy good for you. They are TERRIBLE absolutely TERRIBLE Ican't imagine why anyone would tolerate their crap. The pay is low, the QC expectations are ridiculous, and they make up the charge backs as they go. I knew a great company that worked for them. They are out of business today because they couldn't get paid.
