Junk Removal Specialists Needed - we're always hiring new independent contractors.
We are always looking for new independent contractors to help us in our junk removal and hauling endeavors. If you have a flexible schedule contact us today at 540-860-0606. Please print out and complete our Independent Contractor Form. (Throughout this article we may use the terms laborer, independent contractor, or another pronoun interchangeably; at all times we are referring to/ meaning independent contractor.)
What is an independent contractor? According to Wikipedia, an independent contractor is a person who provides services to another entity (Abelia Services) under terms specified in a contract or within a verbal agreement. Unlike an employee, an independent contractor does not work regularly for an employer but works as and when required.
The IRS says this of an independent contractor, “The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or direct only the result of the work and not what will be done and how it will be done.”
Abelia Services primarily needs laborers to complete jobs. We use people on an as-needed basis. Laborers are paid an agreed upon hourly rate per job. An independent contractor is told what the job is. It is then your (the laborer) responsibility to complete the work. In most instances we engage laborers to fill our trucks and trailers with unwanted (junk) belongings.
We pay cash at the end of each day. You are responsible for your own taxes. At the end of the year, if we have paid you over $600, you will be provided a 1099 form per IRS requirements.
What do we do?
Primarily we remove junk. We may be hired to clean out a garage, basement, attic, crawl space, or even a whole home. We may be called on to clean up a construction site or storm debris from someone’s lawn. Landlords call us to clean out abandoned rental properties. Banks call us to clean out foreclosed property. Estate executors call us to dispose of a deceased loved one’s remaining property. The list goes on…
What do we expect from you and what are we looking for?
We need people who are physically able to perform hard manual labor for several hours to all day. We often times deal with people who have lost loved ones. We also meet the occasional hoarder. In all cases, laborers need to be able to act in a dignified manner. Abelia Service’s customers are its most important asset. All clients and situations should be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of the circumstances.
We have company t-shirts. Independent contractors are asked to wear a company t-shirt while performing work on our behalf. Smokers – many people find smoking a nasty habit. Smoking should be done at break times and out of the customers view. Cell phones – you are here to work; talk to whomever calls you after we are done. Breaks – we take frequent water breaks as needed in the summer. Everyone breaks at the same time.
How often do we need help?
How often we need help or hire independent contractors varies. Sometimes we need people only once a week. Sometimes we need people 3-4 times a week. This job should be viewed as an opportunity to make some extra cash, not as a main source of income.
What’s the pay?
We generally pay $10 an hour with 4 hours guaranteed. Some that have been with us longer make more. We pay cash at the end of each day.
