What the honest version of their ad might look like;

"Looking for gullible people to clean forclosed homes in the ********and surrounding areas. You must meet the following requirements to be considered for the position.

1. Available Monday thru Friday at least 18 hours per day.
2. Have basic cleaning supplies such as broom, mop, vaccum, spray cleaners, etc.
3. Must have a digital camera.
4. Must have reliable transportation.
5. Must be able to travel in a 120 mile radius of ******** at your own cost for gas.
6. Must have a computer and high speed internet connection to email pictures each day.

The following is a extremely brief job description:

You will be sent out to forclosed homes to do some "Cleaning" not just dusting, spot sweeping, mopping, etc.
You will be asked to take approx 70-100 pictures of each house to document the condition inside and out.

If they can provide enough it may be an ok job for someone out of work. If they can give you 10-15 a day and you get real good at doing them. You could probably profit $100 a day, which is about $12/hr. That beats working at MCDonalds. This is assuming that your client doesn't screw you (and eats the chargebacks himself) so more then likely you would get screwed too. But we used to pay our recleaners like $25 per house and a couple of them made a killing.

BigP, the honest version would also list that strong possibility of chargebacks for anything they interpret as below the requirements of the job. nurumkin, really? 10-15 sales cleans per day? 1500 photos? $12 per hour? When I was a boy, my mother did 10 a day at a motel she worked at after my father died. I would rather she worked at McDonalds.

No way anyone could do 10-15 sales cleans in 1 day with 1 crew, on the other hand, I could see 10-15 monthly refresh's ( maids ) or whatever you want to call them. A simple wipe down, mop and vacuum, replace air fresheners, it can be done. As long as your following someone who did the sales clean properly.:thumbsup: Me for example! :thumbsup:

No way anyone would do a sales clean for $25, or would they?? :whistling2:

I read that as a reclean job not an initial job. It says to expect about 30min of cleaning, which to me says reclean. We used to have people who would bust their asses and do 15 recleans a day. Because I don't know what mcdonalds pays around you but I'm pretty sure it's like $8/hr here and at least doing recleans you aren't being managed by an 18 year old.

An 18 year old? Have to talked to the clerks at these companies lately?If you have been in this business anytime at all you know when they state what the work is, add to it; when they state what the pay is, subtract from it. People who are able to work at the pace you stated have no business doing jobs for that rate. They are far above average and should stop selling themselves for peanuts.

Maybe I just assume that these other regionals treat their workers like we treat ours, that is when your at the bottom of the ladder we eat the chargeback for you as long as you did your job right. Basically you are paying us to deal with the BS for you (paying as in we take our cut). I rarely actually take money back from my day labor unless they are the ones that screwed up.
