Thanks for joining the facebook group!
Below are a few steps that you will need to take before you can qualify for work. Please do not offer to take work offers if you have not registered in yardbook yet, as we will not be able to assign to you and will have to assign before you can use the timeclock.
Step 1: Get Acquainted with Yardbook
Everything that isn't direct labor is operated, tracked, billed, and paid out through Yardbook.com
It offers the company scheduling and routing, and it offers ALC Workers an easy-to-use timeclock, and online access to job instructions.
This allows us to offer competitive rates with a higher technical profit margin - because we don't need to have an office this way. Higher Profits mean You Make More! PLUS when You mark your jobs as Complete, the clients (can opt in to) get and auto-email advising them the work is complete!
This is also where you will take before and after photos, complete check lists, take notes on important things you might notice, and advise ALC Agents about other work that may be desired! Upselling equals more work equals more money in your pocket!
step 2: Done! Just keep an eye on facebook!
How to work
Answer: As though they are watching you work out of their windows
This is silly of course, but sadly many people continue to work while exhausted, or do not pick up garbage they dropped, or are working very slowly. If the customer sees this, they will question the amount that is paid out - especially if the job takes longer than anticipated. If you're tired, take a breather. But make sure you're drinking water, dehydration is a serious productivity killer.
Mowers are weighted in the rear to give healthy grass a striped pattern. We must be mindful of these lines, as the pattern is part of the prestige that a satisfied customer expects.
Trimming isn't just to get where the mower can't - it's to make the mower's job easier. cutting wider in the corners helps the mower stay on a smooth uninterrupted course
Clippings come with us unless requested. Always blow out equipment and double-check the street before driving away. We don't want to leave a trail.
Dump mower bags into wheeled bins to bring to the truck - NEVER continue to mow if the bag is full.
