    Hi- have any of you worked for Emcon Associates from NJ ? They contacted me about maintenance on a new box store here. I have never heard of them.

    OK, so nobody responded, so I will tell you some of the highlights of their bid spec: each invoice for work performed must be stamped with date and time by the store manager, if invoice is not rec'd by Emcon within 30 days of work performed it will not be paid, payment for accepted invoices will be mailed appx 45 days from date of receipt LESS A 3% PROCESSING FEE, if insurance lapses a 28% fee will be charged on most recent invoice, plus a $50 penalty, and the best part, something to the effect that contractor must sign a waiver of right to file a mechanics lien against Emcon if payment is not rec'd.:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :walking:

    i've also been contacted by emcon. Actually the woman on the phone seemed very nice, and informative. Although, I'd still like to see if anybody has dealt with them in the past as well before I talk to them. So I guess this is a bump considering that this is a thread from 2006

    Nature of the beast.

    I am stupid since to me it would seem only reasonable for the person providing the service to spell out company policy for payments instead of the person whom is going to pay the bill to tell you how they "might" pay the bill.
