For us it was not a good program to be involved in. We had to supply how much would we charge for trip calls during business hours and after business hours. Basically act as a landlord and kiss tenants feet at 2am when the toilet overflows.
I can tell you that we charged $189 after hour call fee PLUS cost of labor and materials AND the response was "ARE YOU KIDDING?"
They wanted a $25 call fee for regular hours and $40 after hour call fee from 5pm till 8am and $20 per hour labor for ONLY 1 man. For all our private work we charge $189 emergency call fee for 5pm till 8am plus $54.00 per hour and a 2 man team. NO after hours calls to these properties with only 1 person period.
Also, ALL responses had to be responded to within 1 hour and you had to be onsite within 2 hours AND they call the tenant to see if you showed up within the 2 hours or they cut the invoice.
Our first and ONLY job was at 3:15 am for a backed up sink when the drunk puked in the sink and it wouldn't go down. We fought to get paid for our invoice and they cut it to $60 minus 20% discount for a grand total of $48.00. OUR gas cost us this much not counting the lost sleep
The other contractor who "took over our route" quit 2 days later when he got called out at 1am for the tenant who lost her keys and couldn't get in the unit.
I'm sure you would get hired asap since nobody else will do it
