Changes at five brothers

Has anyone noticed the recent changes they've made? If so I'd like to hear your take on them. Im suspecting things will go downhill but hope that's not the case.

Major staffing changes. Some of the staff doesn't even know what going on. But I do know they are mixing up the contractors, sending them to other contractor maintained properties to bid everything, only to issue the original contractor no charge orders.

Sounds like business as usual.

They haven't known their head from a hole in the ground for a long time, clear back in 09 and 10 when I WAS working for them not having a clue was standard procedure for the day.

It was common for them to email you a question on a w/o. When you'd reply to them that the info they desired was in the notes and pics along with further explanation they'd go a couple days and then another person would email you asking the same thing.
Another reply and a few more days would go by, then a third person would email you stating this was the third request and that if you didn't respond immediately they'd threaten to cut your entire invoice.

Your alleged vendor rep would change some times monthly. Even when emailing them they were unable to help with the mass confusion. Trying to talk to a supervisor was not going to ever happen.
And on and on and on and on.


Over all my entire time with this company I might have broke even.
If there was any profit with them it was minor.

It seems I`m not the only one getting the run around with them. Seems like all these companies are getting harder to work for.

UMM lets see SURE you NOT TALKING ABOUT our FAvorite Service unprovider. They cant be doing well either I have not seen it this slow in Years !!! The have NOT gotten to the charge back absurdity yet but ... SOME THING is up INDUSTRY WIDE. I have a friend who has gone back to doing siding and he is making alot more than the PPres. I think the clan in Austin Texas is outsourcing to a low ball outfit to do the work then when they cant get it done they ask the tried and true ( dependable ) vendors to do it. I have been told by a Realtor t hat our industry is forcasted to die until 2015 and I think we are starting to see it. Hope I'm wrong
