Pros: travel reimbursement, tips
Cons: long hours
A typical day at Maidpro, I would show up to the office every morning and collect my work orders, and then you're on your own for the rest of the day unless it's a house that requires more than one cleaning specialist. I learned that I'd rather be part of a team than to work every day by myself. Management was rather poor, they didn't take any initiative in fixing issues that any of my co-workers, myself included, went to them with. Co-workers were wonderful, you spend your first two weeks training with the same person and I had a blast through my training. She was knowledgeable and patient the entire time. The hardest part of my job was how physically draining cleaning 4 houses a day 5-6 days a week could be. But the pay plus the tips did make it worth it, don't get me wrong. Most enjoyable part of my job was getting regular clients and getting to know them and their families.
