Any body used John Lewis Home solutions?

Hi Folks,

'John Lewis' Stores are recruiting tradesman in my area. The idea being they check your credentials and offer their customers an electrician or gardener for an agreed price per hour. The tradesman then is paid directly from John Lewis. There is no fee or commision to the tradesman and they can charge there own going rate.

I am part way through there application process and await a call from them.

Has any-body come across this before?

Would be interested to hear what your experiences have been like.  

Thanks

Ian B

    They were doing a trial last year in my area and a few others, sent me about 15 emails on it but I never actually went any further as I was too busy as is. it sounds better thought out than other schemes but I refuse to work for an hourly rate anyway so I dont think I'd ever do it.

     We are Home Solutions contractors. Happy to discuss in provate (perhaps the BOG) or on the phone but not on a public forum.

    • Why is that Nick?
