Does Wal-Mart require a vendor number to do their lots, or is it just recomended to have one? Is anyone doing them w/o one?

The require on but they are also the one that gives it to you.

Most Wall Marts go through a NSP. (National Service Provider).

Yes they require a vender number,Liability insurance on all equipment used.It takes around 1 to three months to obtain this you will not be paid until approved as vender.They are in control hope that helps! Its all up to the manager they push it through.

I did some work for a new WW here last September and just got paid last week. They are very well known for holding back payments. If you work for them make it worth your while.

I have heard pricing anyware from $25 per visit to $375.00 per visit. a lot depends on the area you live in and your competition. Also on what you offer for your service. (blowing sidewalks, emptying trash, pickup litter on green areas etc.) along with time spent on the job, number of times a week you clean, and what you feel you are worth.

Hate walmarts and how they treat sweeping companies. Friends in the industry have told me about how they try to get every second out of your X hours on the yard X amount of days. I have even herd of them making parking lot security riding around in golf carts showing where trash has just blown onto the yard and how you are doing a bad job. They treat you poorly, avoid paying you if possible, and always keep you on a leash by threatening to switch for another company that has a lower bid and quality. I'd stay away from walmart if possible. A lot of other properties depends a lot of the property manager (If they are local) or the Store managers (their input to the property manager).
