1099 SNOW CONTRACTORS' SUMMARY:
Foot Soldiers, LLC is seeking snow drivers with vehicles and non-drivers to shovel snow. We have clusters of hundreds of pre-registered townhomes, primarily in central Brooklyn, for snow removal services. Snow Contractors are assigned 10-20 neighboring properties per shift. Due to COVID-19. Snow Contractors do not shovel while snow is falling, only immediately after a snowfall, and the goal is to clear all properties within 4-6 hours after each snowfall has ended.
Please DO NOT CALL OUR OFFICE to inquire about this opportunity. Complete the application through ZipRecruiter, and we'll reach out to you, we promise. :-) Hiring contractors now, contract runs from October 1, 2020 - April 30th, 2021
Snow Contractors spread calcium chloride on assigned properties before each snowfall, shovel properties provided, once the storm has ended, and can also work emergency calls at surge rates the day after a snowfall. Snow Is unpredictable; therefore, Snow Contractors monitor the weather alongside Foot Soldiers' managers and are on call 24/7 from October - April (including holidays and weekends).
Our ideal candidates are rideshare drivers, paraprofessionals, those who are temporarily unemployed (running out of unemployment), contractors, part-time, and seasonal workers. We also seek students (high school, college), residents of Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Bushwick, Williamsburg, East Flatbush, East New York, or Brownsville and have flexibility within their schedules when snowfall occurs.
Foot Soldiers billing for brownstone-sized properties START at $99.99 per property (for 2”- 6” of snow). Snow Contractors who perform well typically earn between $350 - $1,000+ per snowfall. Payments are distributed twice a month via direct deposit.
