If its a National or Regional, they are not going to give you work that is only in your backyard. Expect to cover several counties. And $40 before they get their 20-25% discount. They will not pay you any additional to travel the 65 miles one way for that one grass cut either. If you have no experience in their photo requirements or what they look for just to bang you, expect one out of every six or seven grass cuts to be rejected due to (input reason here). Sorry, just being honest.
I was out doing QCs on a trashout crew yesterday and rolled by another foreclosure that was in the process of a grass cut. The contractor had a hand me down pushmower cutting a 125' x 150' lot with 8" tall grass. No trailer, no trimmer. Just an old Chevy truck with a for sale sign in the window and a cheap leaf blower in the bed. That my friend, is the current state of this industry.
