Individual work, no real supervision
Field Technician (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: work alone without supervision (if you like that), flexible work schedule
Cons: when it's really hot/cold and you have to work outdoors
A typical day is going to businesses to clean their windows (i.e chick fil a, stores in strip centers). Most enjoyable part of the job would be the lack of supervision, since you have to go place to place and you work alone. Hardest part of job is working when it's hot/cold. Maybe also excessive bending down to clean bottom portion of windows, could – more... be bad for your back over time. – less

Nice place to work, very flexible
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Brighton, MINovember 15, 2013
Pros: very flexible, friendly environment
Cons: no benefits, lots of traveling
Very flexible hours. I'm a self motivated person so it worked out very well. There is a lot of traveling involved so gas money was a little bit of an issue. I enjoyed meeting new people and working outdoors. Dan, the owner, is an awesome person to work for, very caring, motivating, and friendly.

Okay place to work
Office Administrator (Former Employee), Grandville, MISeptember 30, 2013
Pros: independent-is not micro-managed
Cons: unpaid lunches, no career advancement, no benefits, biased management
FIsh window cleaning has a lot of great employees and is a smaller business so it is more personal than larger companies. However, the management team is very biased and not professional. I enjoyed the freedom of the job; it was very independent and was not micro-managed, however, there is no room for career advancement, pay raise and they do not provide – more... paid lunches nor any benefits. Overall I enjoyed working there, but it is not the type of job that will be long term. – less

Why Rich...why and how could you leave your second family?
Window Cleaner/Sales//sales (Former Employee), Elgin, ILAugust 16, 2013
Pros: scheduale, opportunity to collect tips, great staff
Cons: pay. no benifits, no gas compensation, use of own vehicle for job
I liked the job. It was 7-3, boss was pretty fair. Minimum wage with optional tip compensation. He stayed out of your hair and left out the corporate b.s. The training was very efficient. I learned alot from this job. Sadly, he took his life, resulting in the death of my job with other staff of 6.
No benefits, and no advancement. With the 7-3 schedule, – more... and him being lenient, my work/life balance was well. He said, "as long as you finish your route and keep a honest track record of hours, I will compensate you right if u supply me with the right details. He didn't even care if someone got their hair cut, as long as they wrote it down they did it. lol
He also let me do sales when my asthma was acting up, (Window Cleaning can be labor and physically intensive)so he was caring as well. Rich made sure I was well supplied. \
Rest in Peace Rich, hoping you are happy and at peace in whatever ideal place is paradise in your mind seeing your life on earth was hell.
He made a big deal over little things...like, non capped pens. I miss that nutjob. – less

Not a bad transitional job
Service Representative (Current Employee), Spring Branch, TXJuly 31, 2013
Working for Fish overall isn't a bad experience, it has it's ups and downs like every job. I personally feel that compensation for the type of work that is required should be a little better but it definitely surpasses that of the typical 'job' in the Houston area.
The freedom to handle your own workload for the day is really nice, you're not directly – more... supervised by anyone and as long as you complete your work to the customers satisfaction, there are no problems from management. The management here have pretty good communication skills as far as conveying what needs to be done for the day.
I'm personally just looking to advance in the industry to a position that pays better and will expand my knowledge and experience in the industry. – less

Have fun and make money.
Foreman (Former Employee), Poland, OHJuly 31, 2013
Pros: being paid by the job
Cons: getting a paycheck only twice a month.
We always had morning meetings and one of our sayings was to have fun and make money. A typical day at work consisted of going on site to whatever house or business I was to clean that day. I would get all the tools I needed for the job for the day,. I would clean all necessary windows described on the job requisition. I would clean them to 100% customer – more... satisfaction. I would bill the customer and either collect necessary payment or their signature for a billed or prepaid job. I learned how to work in very different environments. Everyone's home is different and customers varied on how and when we could clean their windows.All employees wanted to work hard and do our best because we were paid by the job and the satisfaction of our customers. The hardest part of the job was knowing how to handle and satisfy every customer. I enjoyed seeing the excitement on the faces of my clients on a job well done. – less

Flexible and Limitless pay opportunities.
Window Cleaner (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 12, 2013
Pros: limitless income opportunities, flexible
Cons: hard on vehicle, low percentage per job, high priced.
This job allows you to work at your own pace and to acquire as much income as you can handle. With the weekly route work divided among you and fellow co-workers. One workers inability to work one week is your opportunity to make more money. This job is very demanding of your personal vehicle so the better gas mileage you receive the better your candidacy.

It was a pleasure
Customer Service and Sales (Former Employee), San Marcos, CAMarch 4, 2013
A typical day at work with Fish Window Cleaning was very easy going. a regular work day was from 7 to 2. but could start as early as 4 30 and end as late as 5. never worked longer than 8 hours. You learn how to clean everything from a few store front windows alone. to working on an entire highschool campus with 3 or 4 other guys. the management is amazing. – more... very good people. coworkers are extremely hard working. – less

Hard work, low pay, good work relationship with owner and other workers.
Sales and Service (Former Employee), Lawrenceville, NJMarch 4, 2013
Pros: freedom to move around and schedule your day, ability to sell the service to new clients and thus to increase your compensation.
Cons: low pay, alot of travel between job sites.
A typical day involved getting to work, picking up job assignments, and going to work sites. I learned to prioritize work according to location and profitability. I was, in effect, an outside contractor as Fish is a window cleaning franchise. Management consisted of the owner who had just started the business when I began to work there. He was fair – more... and worked very hard at building the business. My co-workers came and went fairly frequently as the weekly compensation was not guaranteed. The hardest part of the job was not knowing how much you would earn from week to week. The most enjoyable part of the job was selling the service, which earned extra commissions and helping to grow a new business. – less
