Good Luck! I hope you're starting with a big bank account because it'll be gone working for those rates......

Take BRADSConst advice. Sentinel will pay but their pay sucks and they will nickle and dime you to death. Dont get caught up in thinking you will get paid for 20 cb yards they will reduce to 10 and on grass cuts HAHA O you will see. Just dont expect to make over $75.00 bucks even if the yard is 4 ft tall and is one acre. Also I have had them reduce grass cuts to $0 because they said there was some clippings in 1 photo.

I took a no pay on one GC because I didn't run my mower down the gravel driveway and trim all the weeds to 2". that, I'm not screwing up the mower on gravel.

I had another property that I mowed with wet grass. The tires left wet green marks on the sidewalk and there was a few clippings that the blower couldn't get because they were stuck. This showed in the after pics and took a no pay for that too.

I was told when you work for this company you can't work for any others... Is this true and the norm for all?

First of all, if they tell you that you can't work for any other company then guess what they just made you an employee.

Sentinel has a HUD post convey contract. As part of that contract, HUD requires that the contract holder can NOT perform the Pre-Convey work on that same property. By doing this, HUD believes that they are getting a more accurate analysis of the property condition as you have a different set of eyes checking things over.

Think of it like this, the pre-convey hack hides all the debris in the crawl space, cistern and attic. Do you really think the same hack is going to admit on the post convey that the debris is still there? No. And the thus the "you can't work for anyone else rule".

And that doesn't work with the regional model. I know plenty of contrators doing pre and post convey work on the same properties. regional models breed this.....

Post Convey work for companies will put you in bankruptcy.
