    I would like a little in put,if any of you have ever serviced a Wal Mart. Do they pay well and what type of services do they usually require?We have a friend of the property manager who told us they would like it cleaned up tomorrow! All shrubs trimmed weeds taken care of and mowed. The old service hasn't been there in over a month! So if any of you have any info or warnings PLEASE REPLY Thank You Cory

    All I will say is when you bill them don't hold your breath waiting for your check. If your lucky maybe you will get it before next season.

    Whatever you do stay as far away from walmart as humanly possible.

    There could be a reason as to why the other LCO discontinued service. I have never serviced a Wal Mart location so I can't say for sure. Just throwing out a possibility and something to look for.

    It's been brought up on here before and they didn't get rave reviews then either. The one here I've heard pays pretty good but I got enough slow payers.

    Oh, come on, don't make a remark like that without backing it up with some reasons. Not saying your anti Wal Mart attitude isn't valid, but please give some substance to your one liner.

    Heck, I spend enough money there. I think I'll just drop some info off there and see where it leads.

    I can wait a month or so for a pay check. If their payments take a while, it just means you'll get a check in the off season.

    This is my first season mowing a wal mart, and I would take alot more if possible. It takes 30 days to receive first check, then every week. If your not in there system, it takes 60 days. I ahve never had a problem getting money. I get a check every monday.
