Question DetailsAsked on 1/25/2014

Why does a contractors grade change based on the number of miles from my home. I can get a B to change to A .

Contractor = Sod Sales Direct. If I select ANY in the "Provider Distance from your Address" the performance grade = B. If I enter 25 miles, the performance grade changes to an A. I found this disturbing since there were more "F" grades for this provider than A or B. If I had not been changing around the search criteria I would not have known this.
Do you find this as disturbing as I do? Thank you

What would worry me a lot more is an average of A or B if there are more F's than A's or B's - though that might be a function of the weighting - contacts without work done are weighted only - what is it - 25% weight, and non-members don't count at all.
