Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they
will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers.
Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone 
And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer 
Plus a lot of other nonsense 
 
When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ?
I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ?
Here is the answer sent to me 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Hello,

 

I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out.

 

Thank you!

Paul;

 

Your statement

 

" When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ?
I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? "

 

You are exactly on point. How the hell do I know for sure when you have been paid? This comes after being so stupid that I would agree to be paid when paid in the first place.

 

I just received a query from "FacilitySource" to become a contractor. They have just been consumed by CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis),

a large player in the real estate/ real estate management area. I received a solicitation sheet from them and I won't even insult the intelligence of those on this venue by posting it.

 

The response section was very definite but the payment portion was somewhere out in the Cosmos. You could  be  paid only if they got paid and then pay you at some mysterious date in the future. They had a list of discounts that they wanted to take under circumstances that were totally unverifiable. You also had to sign away all rights as a contractor while shielding them from everything. Incredible............

 

But if I were to sign this nonsense, I would be getting exactly what I deserve.

 

Just for the record, they intimated that they wanted me to provide service to Lowe's, along with some other familiar major accounts in my area.

 

I politely refused the offer but thought to myself that if a person made me an offer like this to my face I would have dispensed justice with a broken car antenna right on the spot.

 

Peace out!

1st of all while its great to use as an excuse. I am not sure as what I would like to consider myself a legitimate business that excuse to not pay does not fly. I cant use that excuse with Grimco, Glantz aluminum suppliers , Ford , the bank.   Hmmm I will just have to put on my big boy pants and get into the line of credit.  Our large signs we are using our money for 60-90 days by the time the project starts through delivery then getting paid.    Besides what if they never get paid. Nope sorry thats not how this works.

Hmm, isn't that company from the OP located on Long Island?   IIRC quite a few of these national maint. companies started out on L.I.   Just an observation, though I guess I don't have enough statistical data to draw a meaningful conclusion.

 

And I just popped onto google maps and that address is the first bank of long island.   Hmm, curiouser and curiouser.    Wasn't there another thread with a national maint. company with a questionable address?    I'm glad that, at 59, I only have to deal with this sort of people for another 30 or 35 years before I can afford to retire.  🙂
