How do they get their jobs? Who hires them?


Not sure how they get jobs, but I feel sorry for the people who hire them for work.

They called my company last week, they said they had an over flow of jobs, didn’t think anything suspicious, Yesterday I tried to do a little digging, after reading all these comments, I sent them an email, Saying we will need payment upfront, they wanted us to get inside customer’s house and then they would send payment, which I said no.Thank you guys for giving me the headsup.Rather stay at home and cut my
Lawn and play with my dogs than driving 2 hours away for a job that probably I am not even gonna get paid for.

Our company is creating new opportunities for master technicians. Our national affiliate program seeks out the best owner operators in our industry and offers 3 benefits. A steady stream of work. An abundance of free training, that you would only be able to get by working for a national chain. And guidelines that give the client a better experience. We currently have over 2800 technicians registered in our program nationwide. And we are elevating this team to help them compete with the national chains. Here is a bit of wisdom for the community: Care more about the image and presentation you give the client. It is just as important as your cleaning results. The national chains go to great length to control what the client sees in the home. Everything has their logo on it. Everything brought into the home is clean and presentable. They are using showmanship. Dirty hoses, wands and uniforms are not going to lock clients into your service. Image and quality cleaning results go hand in hand. The goal is to be memorable in a positive way. God Bless.
Hey Mike, I was hoping for a little more information please? I currently have all my own equipment BUT I see the benefits of working under a larger company umbrella so to speak to help keep my own costs low and be able to do more work. I'm curious what type of licensing or certifications you would require, if any? I read on this website that said while some companies require a lengthy background check process others simply require you to show certifications within a certain amount of years https://backgroundcheckrepair.org/, My background is fine so I'm not worried about anything there whatsoever.

Also, I'm curious if this is something I would be able to work in my city/state or would it require us to move to another area where you may have more ad dollars flowing to cover the companies?

Thank you very much for your time and I look forward to your reply.

- Ernest

Everyone that has worked as a subcontractor for outfits like these has always turned out bad. Best case scenarios are you get paid chump change months after the job. Worse case you never see a dime.

I am loath to turn down work, but I stopped doing anything with them. Every single transaction somehow involved me getting gypped: having to harass them repeatedly to get paid, and then underpaid (ie less than the agreed-upon amount) and very late (more than a year late sometimes)!

You need to learn sooner to drop problematic thieves like them.

They called me on a Friday 6/10/22 for a mattress cleaning on monday 6/13/22 they asked me what cleaning methods I use and that's exclusively hot water extraction. I agree and schedule them. Well I get to the customer for the cleaning and they're not looking for a standard cleaning they're looking for a fumigation and certification of fumigation so they can go back to Canada with it. And not only that it's a temper pedic mattress. I have always turned down not only temper pedic cleanings but also Canadian certified fumigation. I tell the customer this and they're extremely upset because they're going back to Canadian that Wednesday. And they also called boss optima 6 week before to set this cleaning up. Big shit show I'm on the phone with them and they said to do the cleaning anyway. (I felt they we're going to certify my non certifiable cleaning) and I falt out refused. Customer told boss optima 6 weeks ago exactly what they needed and they didn't tell me. Waisted my time and customers time. Yeah not going to pick up the phone if they call me again.
