#1

I've been approached by another service provider called Each.

 

First talk seemed interesting even though the hrly rate is very low at 40. (may be ways around that as we all know)

They tell me they will give me a full days work every week and even book the work in for me and give me a weeks notice. More days if I want it.

 

Now I know you lot will laugh at me doing a full days work...I may have to hire an offsider..

 

Q is. Is or has any one done work for this mob and how have you found them?

They do the normal things but I'm just after mowing and rubbish removals.

 

I'm not sure what you mean by where?

Furthest ill travel is 20 minutes in either direction on any given day. For eg every 3rd Wednesday I travel 15min South to Sheffield and do my Sheffield day. Every 3rd week ill travel 20min west to Ulverstone. Every other day I'm in Devonport.  Remember im not in the big smoke and don't have the endless sea of suburbs that allot of you guys do.

Devonport is the biggest centre in my area and has a pop of about 30k, so getting from one end of town to another is no more than 5 mins on a bad day.

 

Im guessing they just group the jobs in the town they are in so im not driving 20min here and 15 mins there. Although they do pay klm travelled as well.
