But that's 1200.00 per week. Possibly 1800.00. Bet their phones won't stop ringing with people wanting that "oportunity":laughing:

Realities of life....... they are not side by side.

Way too many miles to be driven in a day for that rate.

I won't even do $10 inspections.
Never mind a $12 grass cut.

I had a place once where I had worked on 4 houses in a row, was disorientating because 2 of the houses were identical. I walked into a room that I KNEW I had gutted due to mold but it was original. I had to go into the other house just to prove to myself I wasn't crazy.

That just seems pretty low. I understand the overall volume but c'mon :blink:

It is nothing to do with volume. This isn't even close.
100 mows for $1200 split between three guys before you take out overhead?
Volume agreements are made between two legitimate operators. This is nothing more than a slimeball outfit scamming unskilled, semi employed fools who think they will get paid. Even if the soliciter were to backcharge them 3 orders per day out of the 20, for whatever made up or real excuse, that is $180 per week on an already zero profit margin.
New people to CT, this is why the negativity here is so heavy.

I don't think you understood what I was implying... I agree with you ;)
To some, the "volume" will be appealing when doing the math for quick money but don't factor in their overhead. I could drop everything and become a PP contractor tomorrow and even I am not stupid enough to fall for that Craigs List deal of the week :laughing:

I'm sure the "new" guys or "under the table" guys love this work... Its no different than a black market - illegal contractor undercutting me in price.
