contacted by SG today

They wanted me to be a REO grass vendor in my area. after listening to Clara ramble on for 20 minuets I told her I have been in the business for 5 years and have cut grass for SG before. She then asked if I did PP work also and I told her that I was stopping doing it because there is no money in it anymore except for them. After a long pause by her...........

She goes on to say that you have to have 3 crews to come aboard and of course use "their" approved insurance companies. I told her that was the deal breaker as I have been with my agent for several years(also a family friend)and was not switching. Having priced them out before there is no way I will pay what they want. She also said that I needed I million $$ in E&O. I politly asked what the hell do you need E&O insurance for doing $35 lawn cuts( even though I have it now). Her answer was it is required. I again asked why and again a long pause....... wait for it.......the answer is "it is required"
Told her to have a nice day

They've been hammering my email begging for vendors.

I keep on ignoring, they keep on being dense.

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.

They called me today telling me they REQUIRE a mandatory 30% discount. I told her to pump her brakes and my requirement is payment is required before work is completed and no discount because they didn't read or agree to my terms 3 recruiting calls ago last year. That should be in my file.

Chick told me you can't do that. I said it's my company and I can do what I want sweetheart.

I have not heard from them this season yet. They have contacted me the last couple of years. Each time I simply tell them they have to agree to let me choose my coverage area and the conversation ends.

If it wasn't so insane it'd be hilarious.

How do they (and all the rest of them) think that ONLY their company is allowed to have company policies????????

The mindset of arrogance that this shows should tell a person every thing they need to know about how the business relationship will go once you sign on.

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.

I also liked how she kept repeating over and over again "You will be a independent contractor and not an employee of SG" I responded with since you are telling me what insurance and how many crews I need it sure sounds like an employee to me!!!!!

Why do they say to have your own insurance and then turn around and tell you it isn't good enough?????

Just W O W................
