Reviews for Housekeeper at Maid in Your Hometown
Client-is-always-right mentality is not the right way to support your employees
I arrived 10 minutes early to the location where we would be cleaning, and I could not find where they were trying to send me because they did not include the townhouse number, delaying our work starting by 10 minutes. After 4 hours of working extremely hard, and hearing no complaints from the couple I was cleaning for, I got a call from MIYH saying that the client called and they were not happy with the results. I was shocked because I was literally in their home, and they did not care to say anything to me or give me much direction other than to emphasise areas they wanted cleaned (which I did focus on). I then said to the MIYH caller that I would stay an extra 30 minutes to help, but that I was only booked for 4 hours. I then had to explain to the customer that due to the time constraints, I focused on the areas they told me to focus on, and that I would go back and deeper clean areas at the end, if I had time. 5.5 hours later, I was told at the very end of the shift that the customer would only pay me for 4 hours, because we "showed up late". It was the most upsetting experience I have ever been through. At the end of the shift, I didn't care if they paid me anything, because I just wanted to be out of there. I called the line immediately after my shift ended and asked about how to be removed from the cleaner's roster because I will never do another shift for MIYH again.
Long hours, backbreaking work, no support from MIYH, customer is always right approach, have to buy own cleaning supplies, customer can refuse to pay you the full amount at the end of a session
