PROFESSIONAL HOUSE CLEANER (Former Employee), Aurora, ON – March 20, 2014
Pros: long hours
Cons: very tiring physical work
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.
Housekeeper (Current Employee), Burlington, ON – February 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 – more... and covering for sick coworkers. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the results of your work in each house. – less

Professional House Cleaner (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MN – December 10, 2014
Pros: meet some great people, see beautiful homes all over minnesota
Cons: no breaks, no real reimbursement for gas mileage
MY CO-WORKERS WERE GREAT LADIES TO WORK WITH. THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS JOB WAS MEETING SO MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE,SEEING SO MANY BEAUTIFUL HOMES. A NORMAL DAY AT WORK-ARRIVE AT THE OFFICE TO GET YOUR LIST OF HOMES FOR THE DAY,LOAD UP YOUR EQUIPMENT NEEDED FOR THE DAY AND GET ON YOUR WAY TO YOUR FIRST HOME FOR CLEANING. CHECK YOUR PAPERWORK TO FIND OUT – more... IF THE CLIENT WILL BE HOME THAT DAY IF NOT HOW YOU GET INTO THE HOME, WHAT DOES THE CLIENT WANT DONE,DO THEY HAVE PETS. THE HARDEST PART OF THIS JOB IS THE DRIVING TO AND FROM SO MANY HOMES AND WHEN YOU HAVE BUILT A SMALL RELATIONSHIP WITH A FAMILY AND THEN THEY HAVE TO CANCEL THEIR SERVICE FOR WHATEVER REASON. THAT CAN SOMETIMES BE HARD ESPECIALLY IF YOU REALLY GET TO KNOW THE FAMILY – less
Team Leader (Former Employee), Salisbury, NC – November 14, 2014
Pros: breaks in between houses
Cons: had to use your own car, different partner daily
Every day is different which means you have no idea what your assignments are for that day and who you will be with. Learned good customer service skills as a Team Leader. Pay was okay. Loved most of the coworkers.
Certified house cleaner (Former Employee), Cary, IL – October 22, 2014
Pros: mon-fri holidays off
This is a job to take on if you are in need of one. It is also a job to continue to KEEP looking for another job. the manager is a piece of work. They will dock your pay a dollar all week if you are late by twenty min one day, request off for any reason, do a half day, or a sick day. They also will REFUSE to pay you your check on friday if you did not – more... work a FULL day. this is legal for them because you sign off on it in orientation. – less
Housekeeping Specialist (Current Employee), MI – October 16, 2014
Quality and time management is the #1 focus. Great customer service is the key with this job. Tips are always a bonus as well as a great incentive to make sure that both you and your customers are satisfied with a job well done.
House Cleaner (Former Employee), Westlake, OH – October 13, 2014
Pros: decent pay, paid mileage, paid travel time
Cons: only break was in between houses, only paid hourly rate for "in house" time
We worked in a team of 2-3 people to clean as many houses per day as possible, hoping to average getting a house done in less than an hour and a half. It was important to clean the house right the first time or we would be sent back by the assistant manager who would inspect it to re-do it which would throw the whole daily schedule off.
House Cleaning Technician (Former Employee), Duluth – September 20, 2014
Pros: get off early
Cons: no breaks, you have to drive your own car.
Cleaning dirty houses with a partner. I learned that old workers always had the say so about everything. management sucked because they we're always messy telling the next persons business. my workers been there for 10 plus years the hardest part of this job was cleaning the house with their animals out of a cage.
House cleaner, Eastside area (Former Employee), North Bend – September 15, 2014
Pros: learn how to provide face to face customer service
Cons: not enough hours
This job is great for college students or anyone who wants to earn extra money. However, if you have a hard time staying active for hours on end might not be a good fit. Teaches you to be efficient and also provide good face to face customer service.
House Cleaner (Current Employee), Cave Creek, AZ – September 13, 2014
Pros: donuts every friday
Cons: a lot of driving
Monday-Friday 7:45-typically 2-6. Cleaning houses averaging about 4 a day and getting up to 6 at a time. Compensation is not horrible, it is better then some of the other cleaning companies. Mileage is reimbursed as well. Employees come and go, it's definitely not a career.
Certified Professional House Cleaner (Current Employee), Frederick, MD – September 5, 2014
Pros: health ins, 401, dental, secure job
Cons: short breaks, hard work
A typical day at work includes cleaning four houses a day with a partner. The office might add an additional house to your day depending on how early you finish your day and how far behind another team gets finishing their day. I have learned that you have to take the good with the bad at any job if you want to continue to receive a pay check. Management – more... does things their way whether or not it makes sense, and you have to go along with it. The co-workers are friendly and almost everyone gets along with one another. With over thirty women working together you are bound to have rumors and little disagreements. The hardest part of the job is working with someone who cannot hold up on their end of the work and you have time goals to get out of each house in a certain amount of time. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking to the customers and realizing how much they appreciate what you are doing for them. – less
Professional House Cleaner (Former Employee), Salisbury, NC – August 20, 2014
Pros: paid weekley
Cons: read review
To start off this is a job that hires new people every week to replace the old ones that she gets tired of and throws to the side if she doesn't like you, so that should explain what type of work environment this is. I was an employee there for only about a month and a half was there everyday on time, never called out, always listened to them bad criticize – more... their employees if they messed up one time on something.And you could be on your death bed and the manager does not care unless you are her little pet! I was very sick inside one of one of the houses that we were working in i told my partner that i did not feel good and that I was going to step outside to get some air,well because she was one of the pets she called the boss and told her i was outside eating and on the phone, which i was not! I tried explaining to the manager the next day when she did not put me on the schedule to work and then FIRED me with basically no reason but besides the fact that i went outside the day before when i was feeling sick. To add on you have to clean peoples disgusting bathroom floors and toilets bowls and nasty showers that have BLACK MOLD in them, i would never work for this company again if it was the LAST place to work at in the universe! Oh and expect to get terrirized by the QUALITY INSPECTOR who will come in and be VERY RUDE and treat you as if you are her dog or something. I dont know if ALL of the Cleaning Authoritys are this way but Salisbury, North Carolina One is!!!! – less
Productive and fun people to work with. Great exercise.
Housekeeper Team Leader and Trainer (Former Employee), Clementon, NJ – August 7, 2014
Pros: everyday change of seanery
Cons: cant think of any
I learned how to really detail clean a house so perfectly that clients were amazed, The management was great to work for great to talk to, co-workers did a great job, was funny and just great to be around all together. The hardest part of my job was having to leave it.
crew member (Former Employee), schaumburg, il – July 14, 2014
No breaks, mangement is rude and pushy, use personal car. Only nice thing is that there was no work on weekends or holidays. Thats it. They cut paychecks when unnessarry. Lie about mileage. This job is a joke! Highly do not reccomend.
House Cleaner (Former Employee), Collierville TN – June 25, 2014
I was a house cleaner for The Cleaning Authority. Normally, I arrived at 7:30 and worked till 3. It was a great job for a college student, mainly because of the hours and the pay. Also, it really wasn't that tough of a job.
