I attended it a few months back. I learned a few things, made a few contacts and asked some very pointed questions. I even got answers to a few of them and we established that discoloration can be mold and that is what I am going to call it when it is.

Overall I felt it was worth going to.

We had a meeting a few months back but it was not mandatory and I didn't really get too much out of it. I asked a few questions but got side stepped most of the time.:shifty:

and you can't mention anything about pay. "First thing they said"

Yep, and at the end they did their ever famous, "and we really do appreciate the hard work our vendors do in the field". Thanks for your three hours of BS about how your increasing the standards but we cannot discuss pay AT ALL. We have reached the end of a business cycle folks. Who's still onboard? My patience is dwindling. 75% of my business is now residential. And I have just gotten my real estate license. Hope the hosing recovery trend will continue.

In the past I have had no problems with Cyprexx other than lower pay. But latley the have been wanting to hagle with my bids or invoices. WTF. I keep telling them you asked me to either bid the job or go a head and complete a service and now you want to question my cost. the invoice or Bid stands. Thank you for your businsess.

I told them that since monthly maids pays 1/10th of a sales clean they get 1/10th the work.

I will sweep 1/10th the floors, mop 1/10th the floors, clean 1/10th the windows, etc. And I will not clean or move refrigerators and stoves during monthly maids.

However, if they want to start paying $265 for the monthly services I would be happy to do it all every month.

We are also on the verge of telling them to eat it. Back when we were doing $20k per month we had to suck it up but now that its about 25% of that I dont worry about their "issues" most times. I ignore about 90% of their reported issues and they just go away for some reason. Used to jump and go fix them within the 48hr deadline crap. When we started with cyprexx wiping the counters and new air fresheners was all we done now, like the guy above posted, they want a complete initial clean every month.
