    Pros

    Ability to choose when I wish to work. Company provides smartphone.Weekly pay now.(was next day after job completed though). They do provide supplies to start up with that includes a vacuum and roller bag.

    Cons

    not enough jobs at times to claim to keep pay scale. cant get ahold of anyone on phone at CS. Dont remove cancelled jobs from portal. forget to update your ratings which can hurt your pay scale too.

    Advice to Management

    Don't dock your good contract workers on their pay because there is a lack of jobs to claim. you should make it a 3 hr minimum. Also you extras should have a limit 10 window in 1/2 hr not 26 in 1/2 hr
