Pros: See review.
Cons: Unfortunate personality/mood disorder of 1 of the supervisors. If you have a driver's license, you're probably going to waitress or something higher paying.
My time @ the Maids was just fine; no complaints whatsoever. Transit accessible. Paid training. Paid on time. Management paid for fuel. No issues w/ my pay cheque. Varied start times & end times, which is just fine, but all between 7am & 5pm, as advertised. Now, they don't pay as much as other cleaning companies. But the manager is still fair in all other aspects, & I'm guessing it's because they have different income allotment/allocation &/or business model? The manager provides you with instant oatmeal packets/microwave (bring your own container), Halloween-sized bags of chips, & bottled water. I always brought my own meals, though. & employees are free to eat in the car in between cleans. They also have an electronic kettle to make your own beverage. There was sometimes extra time in between cleans to go to get some food or go to the Pharmacy or Bank, which was neat. But the manager usually lined everything up so that wouldn't happen. & We usually cleaned houses close to each other for efficiency's sake. But a break every now & then was just fine. & I'd say maybe 1 in 20 cleans tipped - very rare. But that's just fine. & there's no pressure to stay. If you find work elsewhere, you're free to leave. & you can come back @ any time.
The driver usually doesn't have time to eat on the road while we're travelling to back-to-back cleans, naturally. So, they can have a quick snack while the other people are loading up the car; very fair, I thought.
In my experience, the co-workers were respectful of non-smokers, & they refrained from using recreational drugs on company time, – more... etc. Self-discipline - I dig it!
...Except 1 of the supervisors had some difficulty with life, it seemed. Not towards me whatsoever, but towards some others; not to the customers, either, & wasn't nasty in the presence of customers. But the language when we cleaned an empty house - very unfortunate. It was very disappointing to see in terms of humanity & all that. & it doesn't speak anything about the company/manager whatsoever, mind you. I don't think management knew, & I didn't want to get involved. Undiagnosed/unmedicated mood disorders can be found everywhere, too. I hope she gets some help, & I hope the people she wasn't very nice to are doing alright & know medical issues in no way reflect who they are as a person. Mood disorders real & don't have to affect your life so negatively. Help is out there! Start by seeing your local walk in clinic gp/family dr to get a referral to a Psychiatrist. There is no shame! – less
