    Anyone have any experience with this company? They are basically a middle man contrating out cleaning jobs to local companies. They offered me, what they call an "Overflow" job.

    I haven't worked with them but when middle man companies call, before they send their packet or before they spend 15 minutes telling me how much work they have or all of their requirements, Ive learned to ask what they pay per foot.

    Most of the places I hear from are offering 6-8 cents a foot. For me personally, I haven't come across a broker that had an attractive offer.

    I got a call from these middle man guys before. they offered me $100 to clean an entire single family home. Top, main floor and basement. I told dude I clean 3 areas for $100. when I was asking, Dude was being very discreet of how many areas in that home but he made it very clear $100 is the max their willing to pay

    All the places like these are paying next to nothing, pass on all of them unless you are willing to work for peanuts.

    I decided to bite and see what happened. Promised a $180 payment to me in 7-10 days. I cleaned two bedrooms and two sofas and used protectant. Its three weeks now and haven't seen a dime. Called a week ago and they said they would "expedite" a check. Nothing..... Not too promising and I'm not sure I want to do work for my competition. And now you know.

    Cleaned Jan.19th. Today is Feb. 18th. Nothing in the mail and have made 5 follow up calls. The ol 7-10 day payment is now a month. Promised me a call yesterday from the owner. Nothing. No check today either. Lesson learned.

    Do you have to wear their uniforms or mention you're from Boss?

    Either they are unorganized are like to set on their money to pull interest..
    If you have a millon $ payroll and earn 10% a year on interest $$$$ adds up per month
    I have a resturant that takes 60 days..anything over 60 days and i call and they will send a chec.....

    They just try to get one over on you if you're not persistent on trying to collect your money

    Today is the 23d and called several times. The so called GM Mike Ochoa, is very rude and only says it's been paid and they don't control the mail. Still nothing today. Over 30 days now. Don't waste your time with this Arizona company. Been fed a line from day one. P.S. I had the satisfaction paper signed on the day cleaning was done. They said the customer had to be called for a rating too. Told me all 10's so there wasn't any problems at all. Imagine if there was even the slightest problem? Would you get paid at all? Not worth the hassle for $180.

    I think the company name may be Boss Optima rather than Boss Ultra.

    I believe they go by different names but they definitely go by BOSS Ultra in this area. Received a check but it was $60 short. Called again and Mike explained to me that they NEVER pay more than 50% and that he would look into my records. At this point I figured it was ridiculous to argue and chalked it up to experience. Not 5 minutes after hanging up I received a call apologizing and told he found the records and will be sending me another check. The saga continues....
