Expert advice..Hardwood floor finished with alcohol based product followed by oil bas


Hello.
I recently had brazillian cherry floors put in my home. The contractor said he used an alcohol based poly named synteko..similar to a gymnasium floor finish. Anyway, the floor finish had many streaks and he said it was b/c the product "dried too quickly" for the hallway. We had the floors finished 2 times and the same problem. 3rd try...this last time he said he would finish it correctly and it looks better but it still does not look right. I found a cap that said "miniwax high build polyurethane" and it is an oil based top coat.
Should he have used this oil based top coat finish on an alcohol based floor finish?
