    Has anyone done plowing for auto zones? I have talked and bidded them. They seem interested but the regional says they are not allowed to sign contracts. Only ones authorized are corporate officers. After checking the internet, that is actually true according to their employee code of conduct. So do I pursue or am I just a glutten for punishment looking to get stiffed? Or worse yet, make my lawyer rich? Let me know your experience and/or advice.

    I remember them paying as you plowed, PITA in my opinion. When it's like that, contract really doesn't matter, they would only owe you at most one plow.

    For their own liability sake, seems odd but es como es.

    I do 9 of them. Each location pays cash each time we plow it. I love customers like that.

    Used to plow one here. Never an issue getting paid, always thought it was wierd when they would open the register to pay me but its hard to argue with cash.
