Anyone Work For LPS or Cyprexx???
I was working through a local company here in NJ completing work on LPS properties for the past year and a half. I was extremely happy with them because they took care of all the paperwork, so the lower fees were ok with me since when I got home I could spend time with my family, not planted in front of a computer.
Since the beginning of grass cut season this year their timelines got to the point where it didn't make sense completing the work. Everything we received was due within 24-48 hours no matter what the work scope. I don't know if this was the company changing the dates or LPS making these dates so short, all I know is that I had to cut my losses and move on. I'm not sure how anyone in this business can work that way unless you only handle a few zip codes or have tons of crews. It got to a point where we weren't making any money and were unable to complete work for any other clients we received work from, so we put them at the back of the priority list. Last week was the last straw when we received nothing for an entire week, then Thursday even we received 5 work orders 2 due Friday and 3 due Saturday. Obviously they weren't anywhere near each other, so we threw in the towel.
I'm all for working hard, but being forced to work weekends for no reason is not acceptable to me. We bust our @sses all week long sometimes sun up to sun down, don't we all deserve time with out families? Why if their offices are closed, should mine be open? Even the local company I was receiving the work from was closed on weekends. I've just had enough and although MCS is almost down there with Safeguard, at least we have a normal amount of time to complete the work.
So the question is does anyone else have this issue with them also?
I am currently in talks with Cyprexx to do rehabs for them, any suggestions on them also?
