    volume... tgcl is the walmart of lawn care. pays a little money, gets a little bit of service.

    not to single out a specific company, cough cough... ahem... their techs are judged by revenue they bring in each day. not square footage or number of stops. give a tech a handful of $29 dollar invoices--- a ten hour day still wont make quota. i dont care if youve got an IV line of crystal meth into your arm... you cant do 30+ houses a day and do it right. the big company emplyoee i talk to now and again on jobsites told me he has to hit 1200 every day, rain, shine, snow, flood, no exceptions, just to have a saturday off. 1200 worth of 30 dollar applications, u do the math.

    good for me though, customers finally get fed up and call me.

    That's b/c that particular company went all granular when they came out with the 48 hour notification law. They S_U_C_K and I am glad for it b/c they do a heck of a lot of advertising and get a bunch of work for the rest of us.
