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), 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.
Trainer/House Cleaner Cleaned (Former Employee), New Haven, MI – April 30, 2014
I drove from house to house cleaned the inside of the house. I worked on a team of two. I learned how to notice dirt and how to clean it up. I learned how to impress many different kinds of people and how to keep them happy. Management was wonderful. Business growing so fast they cant keep enough workers to handle the work load. I enjoyed making my – more... customers happy. I didn't get paid for allot of my time. – less

Cons: little pay, bad mangement, rude
Horrible place to work at seriously don't do it, it seems easy and fast money every Friday but that's a joke , mangers care about the money and money only and they can careless about you, family emergency? don't bother they wont let you leave , manger drops by to inspect houses with your team everyday overall not a place to work owner is very nice but – more... the management is a different story.... you over work yourself with little pay (I quit on my own I was not fired couldn't handle it anymore and you probably wont either) – less
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – February 26, 2014
Pros: work in a regular team and make lasting friendships, paid mileage and drive time. and paid training!
Cons: it's physical labor so it's not the job for some.
The Cleaning Authority in Colorado Springs was a great place to work for. There are many incentive programs in play that just encourage you to come to work and try your best. The hours are great. You work Monday - Friday from around 8 - 4. So you get weekends off but there is extra work if you want the money on Saturday, it's on a volunteer basis. You – more... get a fair lunch break and breaks throughout the day. Fair pay and you get to keep any tips you earn. My favorite thing about the job is the drive in between houses. You typically get on a regular team and you make a friend you guys get to listen to music and talk, it makes the day go by quick. Management is there to listen to you with no judgment. They just want to help and make sure we are all doing all that we can to be the best cleaning company in the area. – less
House Cleaner (Former Employee), Henrico, VA – February 19, 2014
Your will clean about 4 to 5 houses a day and maybe more if you get done early enough because you may have to go help another team. Getting time off is a pain and you have to have a car to drive everyday and you dont really get paid enough to fix it if it breaks down and if it does they still expect you to be at work no questions asked.
