    Just curious how many sub-contractors out there have signed contracts before the season starts about the terms they will work under, how much they will be paid per hour, and when they will be paid?
    I get 65.00/hr per truck and the contract states that I will be paid in full 30 days from invoice date. Invoices go out last day of month. I have yet to not get a check on the 30th day for the full amount.

    I think he is saying he always gets paid. But wants to know how many of us (subs) have contracts with the guy we push for and if they pay on time.

    Yeah you should always have a signed contract... Are you saying you never get paid on the 29th or 31st "late" day for payments?

    I know most of ours are 15/30/45... the 45s damn if they paid on day 42 id be shocked!

    A lot of the 15s were older contracts, they generally pay by day 20, and i dont worry about it being late on those terms.. The 30s and 45s, theyre a day late im up in arms for obvious reasons, you cant pay your monster goddam bills in 6 freking weeks you shouldnt be subbing out the work or hiring some company to do it without a big deposit up front.

    I get paid on time. Usually within 2 weeks of them getting an invoice.
