It wasn't some bank... it was EVERY bank! The way it used to work was that you put in a bid and the lowest bid got the job. I don't think they did much advertising about the bids because we normally got about every bid we put in. If we wanted $12k for a job, we bid $12k and got the job. There were 2 companies that would over-see things and they would sub it out. This was nation wide, not just local. I have no idea how much they got paid from the banks but we would put our bid in to the company and they would pay us. But then the housing bubble hit and every Dick & Jane started cleaning for $3 an hour so it didn't take us long to hit the road!
We could have made more but we didn't take advantage of the situation, we just kinda thought it would always be around. We could have had crews all over and had way more jobs. They asked us many times if we would send crews to northern Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota but we never acted upon the opportunity.
