the crap you see on Craigslist sometimes it's just laughable. You can only text about the job.I am also pretty sure that it is discrimination by requiring them to text you their age. Just in case any of you are interested in a job I left his number up.

MAID SERVICE crew to start ASAP!!! (South Chicago)
We are a preservation company seeking contractors who are interested in performing cleaning duties on bank-owned homes. We are looking for a person who we can trust, who is driven and can manage their time as well as adhere to strict dead-lines and accomplish the scope of work we have to offer. We need someone who is experienced in cleaning and maintaining properties and does not mind traveling city wide to job sites. We provide extra training and need contractors to start as soon as possible.

You must be capable of completing interior and exterior trash removal and cleaning and be able to photo document everything you accomplish on the grounds....

These are the tools you will need to expedite the scope of work we require from you:

-Camera with Date & Time stamp capabilities
-Laptop
-GPS
-Smart phone (emails on your phone)
-Tablet
-Vacuums/ Shop-Vac/ Brooms
-Extensive cleaning supplies

*If you do not possess or have the option to possess all of these items to complete the job correctly please do not reply to this ad.*

Our company requires the highest quality of work and strict timelines to be completed on any of our properties to ensure long term business and higher inventory to keep everyone's companies engaged and active.

If hired you will be an independent contractor (self-employed/1099), which means that you would be responsible for your own tax withholdings. We do not compensate for wear and tear on your vehicle, your equipment or any other expenses (they are considered tax write-offs). We do, however, compensate for fuel and materials as you will be traveling and using cleaning supplies frequently.

Paid Training Start ASAP!!!

Compensation: $8.50 to $14.00 an hour. Plus mileage.
This is a part-time job.
This is a contract job.

Age is a protected class I believe. This ad is the same as asking the candidate to text their race or sexual orientation.

Exactly. That is why I will be forwarding this to the State of Michigan on Monday. Its crappy people like this that give us contractors a bad name.

That craigslist ad in Chicago sounds like BLMreo.. they have been posting alot of ads on craigslist recently.
Also, is it illegal for some companies to ask for a photo of your van and trailer?
Thats just weird to me.

Cleanupman, Here is another example of someone classifying a worker as an "employtractor". I wasn't sure if you had a list of examples of this for IRS misclassification.

That's right down where you are holland, here in the 810 it's the same way but the ads have much more spelling errors and their alot more funny on the traits you must possess since flint is in the 810

I won't hire under 18.

This isn't considered discrimination as even fed jobs say you can't hire under 18.


Could be what that guy is going for on asking age.
