Variety of good attitudes, management very professional, hard work but good pay.
Team Mate - House Cleaning (Former Employee), Granada Hills, CAJune 4, 2014
Pros: good pay, mileage compensation
Cons: hard work, wear and tear on car.
Always clock in the office first, then a team of two or three women drive in the same car to sometimes several cleans per day. Always take a lunch in the middle of the day and report back to the office after completing every house. I learned all the aspects of deep clean, in a variety of settings such as homes, offices, and some janitorial work. The – more... management is very professional, prompt, friendly, and care a lot about their employees and customers. Co-workers were always hard working. The hardest part of the job was the labor itself. The most enjoyable part of the job was the pay and the occasional pot lucks/birthdays in the mornings. – less

Merry Maids not so merry
Cleaning Specialist (Former Employee), Santa Ana, CAJune 3, 2014
Working at Merry Maids sucked. Worked like a slave and got paid almost nothing. We had to drive on own cars and didn't get any help with maintaining them. Worked 40 plus hours most weeks and and wasn't offered any benefits.

Driving and a lot of physical work
House Keeper (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAMay 29, 2014
Pros: worked 20 hours a week
Cons: heavy equipment and drove own vehicle
I enjoy cleaning but I honestly did not enjoy this job very much. I had to use my own vehicle and carry all the equipment to each house. It was a lot of physical work and did not get made much.

Productive and very work oriented work place
House Cleaner (Current Employee), Springfield, ORMay 17, 2014
All the girls meet at the office in the mornig to clock in, no later than 8 oclock. My partner and I go through our book to see what houses we have for the day, then we load up the car with all of our equipment and head out to start the day. I learned how to to properly clean according to the Merry Maids system. The most enjoyable part of my day is – more... going to our regulars, and talking to them and getting to know them. Some we see every week so you really get to know them and they're families. – less

It pays the bills
Cleaner (Current Employee), Seattle, WAMay 11, 2014
Work about 3 homes a day, clean whole house top to bottom and side to side and upon request what is needed.
The co-worker will do opposite work for instance, they do wet work and I would do dry work.
The hardest part is not being able to do more for our customers.
I like cleaning which is enjoyable to me.

Horrible Place too work
House Cleaner (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZApril 11, 2014
Pros: some custers were nice
Cons: cleaning gross houses and driving all around town
They treat their employees like slaves, Only care about the money an new customers.Typical day at merry maid is 2-3 houses an if they wanted too they will send you to do more or to help someone. I learned that people are gross and do not know how to clean up after themselves. Some co-workers were good and some weren't. Hardest part of the job was driving – more... your own car, put to many miles on and if it breaks down or your air breaks. they have no care in the world. some customer were a joy to be around. – less

Awesome place to work if you can afford to work here
House Cleaner (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IndianaApril 2, 2014
Pros: monday thru friday job 8-5 most days
Cons: you dont get paid a lot of money to clean houses
Everyday you go into a residential home and clean for them. You clean bathrooms, kitchens, master bathrooms, master bedrooms, vacuum, and wash the floors on your hands and knees.

Awful
Solo Maid (Former Employee), KnoxvilleMarch 28, 2014
Cons: wastes yout time and doesn't pay by the hour
Manager is a brute who is convinced he is always right. He is rude to clients and has a terrible employee turn over rate because the interviewer lies about the job opportunities and the pay turns out to be horribly low. He bullies his employees

Cleaner (Current Employee), Rochester, MIMarch 12, 2014
Pros: fun environment
Cons: not enough money or benefits
Its a descent job if you need money however when you have kids and household bills it doesn't help to much. Overall the people are a blast to work with. The cleaning is fun the customers are incredible and appreciative. Furthermore it is not the career that I want.

teammate, captain (Former Employee), 895 Texas St. Bellingham, WA 98226March 7, 2014
I did like that we did get paid weekly and there were tips that you could get with the job.
The co-workers were all younger girls.
We'd get to clean up to four houses daily and used our own transportation.

small office
residential cleaner (Former Employee), Lehighton, PAFebruary 20, 2014
it was nice working a different route every day, but the constant travel and being stuck in a car for half the day was exhausting. it didn't pay enough to keep up with the bills.
