    If it's a national, don't support them. They are a big part of the problem.

    I got an email from Cherry telling me what they will pay me to push and salt!

    CVS drug store 22,000 Sq Ft rounded up they will pay $78.40 to remove 2-4'' and $94.08 to salt.

    Hand work $20.80 2-4''

    I suppose there are suckers out there but i'm not one!

    I wonder where they get there cheap salt these days? Must be nice

    We have a 3+ year relationship with them. If you use their website for reporting as stated in the contract, you'll get paid net 60 just like they say. Not a bad company to work for. I didn't find their pricing that out of line really.

    My really good friend has been working with them here in the Chicagoland area for many, many years as a Snow and Landscape Contractor. He has never had a single bad word to say about them. All I have ever heard is good things. Money is always there or else he would walk in a heart beat.

    Been working for them for a couple of years in Chicagoland area. Easy company to deal with and pay on time.

    I've worked for them off an on for the past 6 years. I also use the weather service and find it as a good value. My post count might not be high enough for the beanz but sorry I don't have time post every hour.

    Never had an issue getting paid. One thing to remember with Nationals is that the price is always negotiable up front.

    I don't have an issue with new members stating some experience, but I always see this, someone or a company gets bashed about not paying, or that they are crap to work with and some new guy comes up and posts one post saying "They're great to work for, we've never had any issues, and love working with them!"

    To me sounds to much like a Public Relations reply then a normal person. Especially when there is no reply to ANY other posts on the forum at all. Please tell me how many people come on, reply to one post, and not to any other posts at all.....thought so.
