    i was asked by friend in the business to help him bid on some banks in our area.. it is 30 Wachovia banks.. But you are subbing out from a Company called US Maintence? Does anyone have any expereince working with this company? Do they pay on time? looks like a lot hoops to jump through to get the contract. but is alot of work and a chance to make some good money..

    do a general search on here & on plowsite, there is so much bad about them that i would'nt even give them time to talk to me, lier's, cheaters, no payers
    and so much more, i guess that sum's them up pretty well, oh ya lowballers
    too. stay away, run as fast as you can, don't talk to them, run away
    i guarantee this will be followed up with dozens of post that are generally the same response.

    They make all the money. You do all the work. Avoid them like the plague!

    from what i've read, especially on plowsite, they have the ability to break a company with the crap they pull, i myself cannot afford a bad deal. so i;m taking the word of others and staying clear, i was trying to search and didn't find anything either, i don't know why, but just go to plowsite and scan the first five pages or so of post i'm sure you will find some post about them.
    my advice is listen to the guys that have dealt with them and steer clear.
    if it was just one or two guys i would figure it possibly is them but, i'm talking dozens and dozens of Senior members that have been round and round with this company, i'll see what i can find in the threads to post a few links for ya.
