    Is anyone a landscape maintenance provider for Wal-Mart? I am trying to get my pre-qualification into Wal-Mart to be accepted as a vendor, but I do not have a contact, and the numbers I have called have led me nowhere. Thanks for the information!

    We were contacted by USM to do WalMart snow removal in our area. After jumping through many hoops to get "qualified", as of these date, STILL have not been paid. Oh yeah, they did tell me that being a snow contractor would give a leg up on lawn maintenance. Have tried to contact them numerous times, they never call back. Even funnier, got a call yesterday from USM, asking for company info, wanted to put us into database so we could bid on lawns....even though we were a USM approved vendor,or so we thought. I then asked WHEN lawn contracts would be decided. Answer...they may start allowing bids in next few weeks. Geez! They do not have a clue about what they are doing.

    All the many hoops and barrels you need to jump through just to get the account, is the same number of loopholes, Wal-Mart has in not paying you!!!

    The WalMarts near me are handled by a smaller local outfit 3 Crews and he claims that the pay is good He says he gets paid at time of each service with cash through a payout.
