Awful company to work for/ with
Residential and Commercial Cleaner (Former Employee), Beaufort, SCJanuary 24, 2014
Cons: no lunch breaks, no healthcare, long drives a ton of milers
Management cares about one thing and one thing only, revenue. In seven months of employment I was put in countless unsafe situations for the sake of their "buck". Unless there's absolutely no other option, DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY, and even then I'd recommend waiting for a better opportunity

Maid/Housekeeping Cleaner (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMJanuary 19, 2014
Typical Day at work included driving to clients house and cleaning them. Vacuuming and mopping the floors. Management wasnt the greatest at this job and co-workers never kept up with their jobs. hardest part of the job was the language difference. Most spoke spanish and I am not equipped with that language very well. Most enjoyable part of this job – more... was when it was time to go home – less

Housekeeper (Former Employee), Lodi, CAJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: got to know different cities.
Cons: pay
At Merry Maids, we would go in to the office every day and get our schedule of the houses we were going to be assigned to for the day, gather our equipment and load our vehicles then take off. Our franchise owner wasn't the nicest or fair guy. I really enjoyed visiting different cities and the regular customers I had.

Office Manager (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJanuary 14, 2014
I helped a new owner of a Merry Maids franchise start up his business. It was a challenge learning the new computer program with very little help to go off of but I was up for the challenge. My co-workers were great, I really enjoyed working with the owner.

Professional Maid (Former Employee), Auburn, WAJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: free breakfast, amazing people
Cons: poor quality uniforms
A typical day at Merry Maids was the team meeting in the morning before we left to go clean. I learned a lot about how to clean things properly with less product. My manager was understanding and nice. I loved all my co workers they are all hard workers and fun. The hardest part of the job was probably when we got to the end of the day and had a larger – more... house to clean because we would be tired. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting and connecting with the customers. – less

Maid/Group Leader/Office assistant (Former Employee), Northport, ALNovember 19, 2013
Pros: having fun with the crew to and from jobsites. christmas bonuses from the customers.
Cons: no benefits
I really loved this job! It was an experience to enter a place that looked like a tornado and a massacre happened at the same time and leave the place looking like it was ready to be rented out. A lot of hard work but satisfying to see that the hard work really accomplished something.

Quality Control (Current Employee), Fargo North DakotaNovember 13, 2013
Pros: good management
Cons: terrible place to be
While I am very happy with my manager the women that work at merry maids are terrible. They constantly complain about not getting their way and whine like 3 year olds until they get what they want. They offer only aflack benefits which are terrible, compensation can be really good if it's the "on" season but if it gets slow you're lucky to make $300 – more... a week. – less

Fast paced, hard working, but friendly envirionment
Maid/Housekeeping Cleaner (Former Employee), Vacaville, CANovember 8, 2013
Pros: constantly changing locations, fast pace
Cons: driving personal vehicle, minimum wages
I thought cleaning was easy since I do it at home, but I learned there is a lot more involved beyond simply cleaning. The management was nice and understanding of the maids since they too had started out as a maid. The hardest part of the job is knowing when you need to stop working on a greasy location or moldy area and just write it down as needing – more... special attention next time around and the hand cleaning of the floors. I enjoyed the people I worked with and the meeting of some of the clients. This type of work takes a lot of endurance. My only trouble is needing more time than the average maid to really get the hang of good cleaning in a timely manner. – less
