Maid (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 6 September 2017
Management is unpleasant and unorganized, hours never steady, pay is horrible, expectations too high, disgusting houses to clean, employee turn over rate is incredibly high because of how bad it is working at the Burlington location, we were cleaning houses with black mold and given attitude about how long it took to clean it, they only care about the money.
Cleaner full time (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 16 July 2017
I work for this company for a year I worked up until I had due with my first son. Long hours but they are great hours. No weekends or evenings it was a perfect full time Position. I think the hourly rate could have been a little Higher
By far the most discouraging place I have ever experienced
Maid (Former Employee) – Orillia, ON – 3 July 2017
No Breaks!!! Oh you get your break in the car while travelling between houses. Eat lunch in car or on side of road before or after cleaning a house. Minimum wage I never saw a commission/ tips the other maids kept my tips. Management poorly organized/unprofessional/I never met my Boss oh once I waved to her from the car. Management will send you up to an hour of travel without pay because you do not get paid until you start cleaning your first house.We have been sent to wrong houses and do not get paid for this lack of communication. Employee turn over rate is extremely high. Fast pace/unrealistic expectations/ Work with Molly Maid not my recommendation.

Cleaner (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 May 2017
The expectations of this job are ridiculous. I don't even know where to begin. You're told you work 8-4:30 but that's not true, you have to leave super early and sometimes are expected to stay late. The people are nice to an extent, a lot of issues between employees and unprofessionally discussing the customers which I find disrespectful. The expectations they have in the time allotted is astonishing especially considering the sub-par pay. Also, no breaks! The only break is sitting in the car on the way to the next house and that's not long because they schedule all the houses strategically to minimize driving. They're wanting to grow their company but they won't put in enough time to train people properly. Worst job experience I've ever had. Unless you're desperate (and I mean DESPERATE), this might be for you, other wise stay away
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 4 May 2017
The teams are friendly. Not a lot of room for advancement. Must have drivers licence for higher pay rate. Work off commission. Required to work one Saturday before Christmas. Hours aren't satisfactory. You could start at 8:30 am and get home by 8 pm. No choice in location or order of houses, you could have a house in Burlington and a house in Mississauga right after. No direct deposit, all by check. No raises.
Route Manager (Current Employee) – Wasaga Beach, ON – 30 March 2017
At Molly Maid, you work in teams of 2, or sometimes 3, so it can be a challenge working with certain people. The best part of the job is that your time goes fast but the worst part is the amount of time that you're unpaid during the work day because you don't get paid for drive time.
Maid (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 22 February 2017
For the work that you have to do its not worth the pay at all. Training pay is ridiculous especially since you are cleaning as if you were on the job by yourself. The management is really unorganized especially for the training process. Training days are all over the place and are not consistent. When you call in for information on when to come is you either get voicemail or they tell you that they'll let you know when to come back in but they never do. 9 times out of 10 you will need to call in the verify yourself. Was just a unpleasant place to work. You always should always check over your pay stub because they tend to mess it up.
House Cleaner (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 20 December 2016
Since I was only working with 1 other lady, I didn't have to interact with anyone which could be a good thing sometimes since I was at peace by myself. No one was there to tell me "do this" "do that" "you're not doing that right".
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 8 December 2016
A typical day at work is going from house to house cleaning for customers. I have learned how to clean in an orderly manner and customer service with a smile. The hardest part of the job is dealing with unsatisfied customers. The best part of the job is the freedom and flexibility.
House Cleaner (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 17 November 2016
Expectations are very high from management. Health and saftey regulations are not followed AT ALL.(having to deal with exposed mold and asbestos without proper equipment. Pay is minimum wage even though they will tell you it's commission. You will be expected to work over time without getting compensated for the hours. Harassment is not taken seriously by management and they allow verbal assault and bullying in the work place.
Sadly there is no pros.
No concern for health and safety, very under paid.
Route Manager (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 3 August 2016
I was in between jobs and was looking for something new. Found that Molly Maid was hiring. I applied and right off the get go they asked if I had a license, even tho I had stated prior that I didn't want to be a driver I was forced into anyway. Then after 3 months in they asked me to pay up some "deposit" for the car which you don't get back when you leave. They need to look up the definition of deposit. I never had a consistent route, being placed at a lot of one shots that had never even been look at by management staff. Some were so unsanitary and others unsafe. I went through 4 partners in the 6 month period of working for them. There was nothing enjoyable about working for Burlington Molly Maid.
Route Manager/Cleaner (Former Employee) – Calgary Alberta – 15 February 2016

House Cleaner (Current Employee) – Lindsay, ON – 17 January 2016
Molly Maid is a good place to work for, but the pay isn't good I can't even live on it. You get the weekends off, and you're on days, but I have to look at another job in order to live.The coworkers are really nice, and they're always there to help you. Dealing with people and making them happy.
