Hard work
Housekeeper (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ONFebruary 6, 2013
Working as a house cleaning is very hard labouring work. I feel the overall work envorinment is different each day depending on which houses you clean and who you are working with. It is not ideal working different hours each day and not knowing when your day will end. The management has great intentions for being helpful when in need by bringing supplies and covering for sick coworkers. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the results of your work in each house.

PROFESSIONAL HOUSE CLEANER (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ONMarch 20, 2014
Show up at the shop at 8am. Load the products into a vehicle and set off to our houses we had for the day working in teams of two. Making sure to develop positive trusting relationships with the clients so they would feel comfortable with us in their home. Best part of my job was meeting new people and learning about their lives.
Pros
long hours
Cons
very tiring physical work

Worst job and management I have ever experienced.
Maid (Former Employee) –  MississaugaFebruary 25, 2015
11 to 12 hour days, 5 days a week under a married couple who have no experience managing. Constant issues and moronic comments, no management history or skill. This job was like going into a company that children ran.

The work was wonderful, hard but good. The days moved fast and there was a lot of new environments. But alas you had to deal with incompetent morons who belittled you constantly and had no idea how to consistently manage. Hard work was rewarded with longer days. If you finished all of your assigned work there was a almost guarantee that you would be working late, get another house and be forced to do more vs. getting off. This company instills a lay mentality that is very apparent due to their "reward" of hard work.

Milage was NOT paid in full, they base it off a GOOGLE OR BING ESTIMATE not your actual hours. So if there is traffic or snow (like in Canada there is) you will not be compensated the extra time. SO 11 hour days turn into 8 hours pay. THEY ARE NOT TRUSTWORTHY CHECK YOUR PAY STUBS. You also will work 60 hour weeks with zero over time, milage and cleaning pay are dispersed and manipulated so that you will NEVER make overtime.

-Labour Board IS investigating but requires pay stubs with the proof they are stealing from their employees CALL THEM-

The management forced employees to clean their houses and go into their bedrooms/homes and clean. Highly uncomfortable and would claim that things were "maliciously" left out to hurt management (example safety pin on the bathroom floor).

This company has a history of abandoning their employees at clients houses
  more... and forcing them to find their own way out. Personal experience: they left a maid alone in a clients house after hours, abandoned her without a mode of transportation and informed an inspector who was clocked out that it was her responsibility to pick up this employee. I am unsure if it is even legal to do this but they do not care as long as they're making money.

This company has inconsistent rules and regulations.
They apply half rules to some and hard rules to others.
Even when it comes to uniforms they are inconsistent, telling one individual they are unprofessional and childish while praising another for similar clothing.

This company will do anything they can to manipulate, push and use you in an extremely terrible way. They force you to be working almost 60 hour weeks of physical labor with women who are in their late 50s. They have a turn over rate that is absolutely sickening but refuse to acknowledge that their management is the reason for such not the job. They hide from their employees and use others to send messages.

I genuinely hope no human has to ever work under these people ever again. They are not fit to manage. It honestly feels like the company is held together with toothpicks and a rich couple who know nothing expect that they want to make a quick buck and that they can manipulate and abuse others for it.

The Cleaning Authority Mississauga is a joke of a company and ran by an incompetent couple.

Please if there is one thing I can say is DO NOT work for this company, put your time towards something better.
