Yes, please tell us again how AMS's peanuts pay is so awesome while what can be made with private customers is not enough.



Some of us remember well when you did that once. We could all use the humor of it happening twice.

You not addressing the pay issue mentioned by Wannabe is why the crickets comment was made.

Can't happen Than. The logistics of it just don't work. Too many remote areas, they'd have to have satellite offices all over Timbuktu.

Has AMS thought of using employees exclusively vs vendors?
Still awaiting answer on this. Rob why do you in house employees only cover a 40 or 50 mile radius in CA and then AMS expects us vendors to clean up the "left overs" Is it becuase you dont want to pay a hour of windshield time for your employees? Why dont your employees trim the bushes or clear the leaves off the roof?

Rob I would also like to see detailed pictures of your "20 cubic" yard dump trucks with tape measure better yet a yard stick showing us the actual dimensions of the bed of truck as ams request from me earlier.

Rob can you explain why AMS lost the Freddie Mac contract in CA?

Since you are so high up on the food chain you should be able to answer those questions...then again everyone else in "high" positions seem to be clueless. Ill put a little faith in you...for now..

Just so the guys working for these prices realize how much you are leaving on the table. These prices are if you have local customers.
Not to mention MOST of the time you are paid in cash on the spot. Or a check on the spot.
NEVER a charge back, and certainly no waiting 60 plus days to get paid.

xiii. No tree limbs are to touch the roof or the house.
xiv.
Trim up all low hanging branches to a minimum of 8 feet above ground level.



The $85 offered would almost be enough to cover the red list of items. But not if the lot is an acre. If the grass is more than 6'' high, NOPE.
Over 6'' and over 10,000 ft.............. We are talking about 3 times that $85 figure.


The dark blue list of items could easily reach $2000 depending on how big the property is, and how many trees are on the place. Tree work is expensive.




And these guys like Robbiez working for companies like AMS tell us that these are market industry prices??????????????????????????
I don't think so.
