    Re: God bless walmart!!!!!

    Jim our store just went through the remodel.All I have heard for 1 1/2 yrs. is how we were their plumber and how good a job it would be for us. One day before the bid was due we get a call from one of the G.C.s bidding asking us to quote the job. When I asked when the bid date was he told me tomorrow.I said thanks but no thanks. The store manager told him to get us to bid. PLEASE!!!!!!! The plumbing had already been rewarded, and the call to me was just to please teh store people. By the way, the out ot towners did a horrible job.and to whom ever asked if we had done a photo lab stopage yet, YES SIR ABOUT EVERY 6 MONTHS SINCE THEY OPENED. God Bless Walmart.

      Re: God bless walmart!!!!!

      I did a few jobs for the WalMart here. I got sick of it. The way it was always explained to me was the local store was supposed to call the management company in Texas, then the management company contacted the plumber.

      What usually happened was they called the people in Texas, and then called every plumber in the phone book to see who would get there first. Then I'd have to report to the company in Texas, they would ignore my report, and then I'd get called out to the store the next day to get yelled at by some stupid manager. I could tolerate the yelling because I was billing them for my time, and I'm fairly certain I made more then her.

      The reason I stopped working for them was my last invoice was $1000 and they took over 90 days to pay. Previously, it took roughly two weeks to pay. The excuse they gave for taking so long was they forgot, even with constant phone calls asking where is the money.

      I haven't purchased anything from a WalMart in almost two years because of it.

        The company I delt with was Registered contractors inc out of Ohio.
        I have no complaints, they are very easy to work with. No run around like most maintenance companies.

        Pay could have been quicker but they made their payment schedule very clear from the beginning.

        I was their go to guy for 6 wal-marts but I missed one darn sink call and that was it. Now I only get called when others can't get it.

          glad we're not the only ones with the no cleanout problems at walmarts. From the c.o. by the back battery of fixtures it is like 190' to what the plans state is a 6" line. No cleanouts in between that anyone can find even though by code they should be every 75', and this building is only 10 years old. Gotta love the shoplifters flushing the plastic packaging though, nothing like a little job security!
