So I phoned up for an ad that was on gumtree ' Workers Wanted: bond cleaners required no experience necessary we will train you $20 ph must have own car cleaning equipment & ABN'. All that was listed in the ad was a first name and a phone number- no business name or logo or email address.
I haven't done bond cleaning before but have cleaned holiday units; supplying my own products etc isn't an issue.
As the story goes I phoned the number. Noone answered so I left a message- there was no voicemail just an automated 'leave a message that will be converted to an sms message' so I did. I got a text later that night that read 'so tell me about yourself' to which I replied 'well I have a car, own equipment & ABN number I'm hardworking but would need some training'. I got a reply text flat out offering me a job cleaning a house without any further interview and was asked if I had someone to clean with me or if they'd need to find a 2nd person. There's been no talk of how & when I'd be paid and there's been no training offered- they didn't even ask what experience I have.
My instinct tells me to run for the hills... anyone been offered work based on a couple of text messages that has had a happy ending?
