    Walgreens is buying out Rite-Aid and closing a bunch of places.
    Not sure about your area.
    Walgreens has a web site for service vendors. The way I read it you have to be approved by Walgreens first, then their management company.

    So does that mean nobody gets paid if they take on a Rite-Aid ?

    Yeah, USM won't pay lol. Go ahead and do as many walgreens as you can. First you need signoffs, for every service, then you need to process online/via phone, then send in invoices with slips signed, they then take them and forward to CBRE management for processing, CBRE pays USM, USM sits on money then pays you, so in 180 days you'll see most of your money but not more than about 80% of it, it will be next summer and you'll still be chasing down that 20% if your lucky. the walgreens/usm combo is about as bad as the 2011 usm/walmart combo fallout...

    springwise doesn't have much of anything, for some reason i think they've gone down substantially in contracts over the years.

    I know Ferandino has all the Walgreens for snowplowing in upstate NY. Worked one summer with them for landscaping and probably never would again. I had no problems with payment but I couldn't handle how little they know about what they were doing and I knew that going in. It was worth it that summer, all the properties I did were right by my other properties and i knew I'd get paid you just have to follow there ridiculous protocols. Now it's not worth the headache

    No clue still speaking to my attorney, I heard the rotation of landscapers is huge. Seems they can't keep them on site

    Goes like this Sam gets hired Samsays he's a landscaper but isn't just a kid n dad in a truck. They can't handle such a big account property looks terrible next landscaper thinks subbing be easier no chasing money hired to the site. Now remember Sam didn't handle site for 3 months so at this time site manager questions USM gets on their ass threatens to fire, remember this ... so now USM jumps on new landscaper but landscaper just got it it will take time to fix property they have mulched and cleaned but there's just a little bit left to beautify it now USM decides it's not quick enough moves onto another new landscaper showing site manager look we made changes now middle landscaper gets prorated pay after spending 300 on mulch mmmm paid 187.00

    You don't have to explain to me, Been there done that many moons ago. Unless they got a retainer they can just get the next one in line. Not worth the hassle and possibly me hunting someone down out of state.
