    Any of you thinking of hooking up with Winter Services in Wisconsin, I would think again. We were subcontracting with them for the past 5 winters and they are getting worse. We are not going back this year. At least 4 or 5 times last winter they would call me in the early eve, most time before the snow started and tell me to have my guys and trucks on site by midnight, the to call me at 10 min to 12 and say have them hold off for a while. The problem is the accounts we did for them is a 30 plus minute drive in good weather, more in a storm. and the refused to pay me for my guys time going there then calling them off. Additionally we were called to do special assignments and when we got there, the lots were being done with there own trucks. They did pay pretty good, but I would think again before hooking up with some non professional folks like them
