Need to know signs of poor workmanship

We have these people that come into to our store that strip and seal the place throughout the year and they are so bad at what they do its not funny but they keep coming back because they are the only guys the companies got. I am an amateur stripper so I would like to know what exactly they are doing wrong so that I don't pick up bad habits
1) They leave black streaks where you can see where their applicator has been while they are laying the polish, it is actually in the polish not just dirt trailing.
2) Where they actually stop and have a cut off there are polish build ups that are yellow is look yuk.
3) Their polish isn't shiny!
4) The night right after they finish strippling and sealing there is already hair immediate into the tile.
5) It is very streaky.
Now this is a terazzo floor and they have 6 guys to do on average 520foot floor.
thanks
Stripper

I know man! It is ridiculous the amount of peeps they get in, thats why I am asking the question for the signs of poor workmanship so I can say what they are doing wrong and try to get them sacked. It is the area manager that is the one that is organizing all these guys to come in though.
I think that my acts will avail to nothing though because they once had to re strip and seal one part of the floor 7 times. Once a night for a week they came in because it just wasn't good enough =(
