Ok heres the deal I subbed work from a company and they sent me a price list via email stating that maid services Pay 110.00 So today I just caught on to the fact I have been getting 27.00 per maid Mind you these houses are usually filthy even if its not a intial. I was told a intial sales clean was 120.00 Never once was I told a maid service paid 27.00! Also mind you I would have to drive 240 miles round trip to some of these so called 27 buck maid services

Should I send them a forward of what they said a maid pays or just cut communications and send him a bill via small claim (Pretty simple here)

Most I've seen from a national or regional is $50 for a maid refresh. $25-$27 seems like the going rate in todays lowball pricing. Sounds like a bait and switch to me......

Thats what this is feeling like to me. Not once did he ever disclose that a maid service was 27.00. Now that I think about how much I was burning on gas and supplies I was paying to make this D bag money

The problem is semantics. Also, you probably knew that 110 is too much for a maid refresh if you are doing recurring services. It just doesn't exist. Most companies pay something along those lines for an initial, and that is not even close to enough. Maid services for AMS run 16 dollars. If you can believe that.

Well welcome to it. Janitorials are ALWAYS a loosing affair unless you are working HUD or for a realtor. Even then it can be rough. You will never be paid 110 for a recurring maid service.

Somone took advantage of your ignorance. It is common when bringing on new people, to not have them told the entire story. If you were told the entire story, you would never agree to do the work at that rate.

So if you never heard of it, how did you get into it? I am not sure I understand what led you here?

I was looking for some part time work and checked craigslist and seen the ad and it sounded like fun. I thought why not Its something new so I gave it a shot...

and another one bites the dust.....

Oh just kiddin'...did you do "maid services" or perform janitorial/sales clean services????
If the later then tell them they owe money...if the first then that is going to be all there is....

Not to sound mean spirited...this could be a very inexpensive valuable lesson.....

This is what I was going off of. At one point we discussed the difference between a sales clean and a maid service as far as how they where to be done (at this point he could have mentioned the price difference but didnt)

Also im sure if I dig deeper in my emails I can find the one where I was told a sales clean pays 120.00 so

No worries about hurting feeling here but I am super pissed at the fact I was doing 200+ mile drives for $27 and no one bothered to tell me

Sorry had to crop
Sorry man. I hope it works out. The person that hired you was not honest, and just looking for cheap labor. I assume you have a buisness licence and insurance? Remember as a 1099 you are responsible for all your own taxes, and double the SS tax. Without a buisness licence and insurance, this person should have workers comp on you, or be treating you as an employee. if you do not have those two things you are working illegally.

Do your homework man.

What kills me, is that someone would be deceptive over these dollar amounts. He paid you $27 for a maid refresh he maybe got $35-$45 tops on. So he's going to try to trick someone into doing something you know they are losing money on, so he could make $7-$17. Crazy.
