Swenson?

Hey guys, new here. Just wondering if anybody has worked for them? I've done a fee work orders and just want to make sure they pay?. They seem like nice people but I don't want to work for free.

Pay is a bit low but that's what I have for now. Thanks in advance.

I know those guys and would personally vouch for them. They do pay and I have seen them pay plenty of people who in my opinion did not deserve it.

I personally hate almost all regionals. I would say those guys, a member of this board, and ZVN are exceptions to the rule. I'm sure there are a few others.

If the pay is low that isn't Swenson it's whoever their client is. I have kind of lost touch with those guys in the past couple of years so I don't know who they work for these days. I can tell you this they try to be fair in their dealings with contractors and nationals.

Good luck and Welcome to the Board.

Ahh well the other member of this board won't be of any help to you. He and I are too far north for you. Florida is a tough market. It's hard to get good money there because the market is saturated with low ballers.

Cover as much territory as you can and turn them around as quickly as you can. That will set you apart. The first thing a guy does when he starts failing is cut back his coverage area.

You are in a tough tough market. $15.00 grass cuts will dull your blades and wear out your belts and spindles. They won't do much else.

Swenson is a cut above from other regionals. I have lost big money with others but this bunch at least try's to be fair and professional. And they are in your back door in south Florida that's a plus.
