Window Cleaner (Former Employee) – Haltom City, TX – May 20, 2017
Good starter company to work for or to work for while you go to school. Not a long term company. No benefits or paid holidays. No insurance or overtime. The work place is very nice and convenient due to being able to work at your own pace. You are out on your own pretty much on a daily basis. You also drive your own vehicle to every job. So you have to weigh out the maintenance repairs for your car. The employee's are usually nice and helpful. This is not a career. Just a job to have in between or for a short period. The turn over is very high there.
Being out on your own
No benifits, no insurance, no paid vacation, or holiday.

Its nice to do different things everyday. Work inside and outside. Work independently. Its great to meet new people and see and experience new places. You do have to be motivated to work here because it is fast-paced. Tips are nice too. I enjoy the people that I work with too which is always a great benefit.
I really enjoyed working at fish window cleaning, the hours and pay were good. I didn't like the fact that I had to drive my own vehicle and pay for my own gas. But the best part was not having a boss stand over top of your shoulder while you work.
completed daily circuits of various window cleaning locations

Each day would consist of either cleaning a circuit of various clients or a large house. I learned quickly how to window clean efficiently to make the most out of my time working during my time with Fish Window Cleaning.

Window Cleaner (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – February 10, 2017
Started with not knowing anything about windows or cleaning one, was trained from day one and always learning till leaving. Winter months(here in Arizona) are good money months due to being a commission based job, while the summer months were slower and not as much. Management changed when working there and needs improvements. Enjoyed the lifestyle of the job with meeting new people but disliked management on certain business ethics. Started this job with seeking to be the best and once there wasn't treated like the best and became limited with work which lead to my resigning.
Overall I loved the job. But for whatever reason the last few months went down hill. The owners only seem to care about their pockets. You can go out of your way a hundred times and still not be shown an ounce of appreciation. Payroll is always an issue. Constantly you have your check to make sure that you weren't shorted even more money than you already were because you had to do work for nothing to make sure that the job didn't walk away.
Typical day included answering the phone, scheduling all jobs that came in, filing paperwork, scanning invoices and estimate sheets, as well as receiving checks into the system as well as billing. I learned a lot while I was there, having never been an admin before that. I enjoyed most aspects of my job, even if I was alone in the office by myself most days.
Was trusted to get things done
no real breaks, was alone in the office most days.

bad management ok leadership good communication poor organization Work started at 7 am, most of the time was spent waiting to get jobs at 8 am. Logistics were unorganized many routes overlap quite often which lowers productivity for company.
