Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Osseo, MN – September 9, 2016
Working for MaidPro was great. I got to work at my own pace and got to listen to music. My job duties were to clean every room in the house. I learned that the bigger the home the more clean it was because there was less clutter in the home.
House Cleaner (Former Employee) – Canton, CT – August 16, 2016
A day at the job was going to the office to refill your cleaners and get clean rags for dusting and moping. getting to paper work for the day usually 2 houses sometimes 3. I usually worked alone unless the house is big then you would work with a co-worker or 2. I enjoyed working for the company just some clients houses were bad where it took longer than is should of.
* A typical day involved oing to 2 or 3 houses or businesses to clean. Sometimes solo, sometimes with other co-workers. Dirty work, thankless work, rude customers that treat you like the dirt you clean. Part-time work only.
*I learned that rich people are worse than poor people when it comes to tipping.
*Management was horrid. There was a certain bully that would cause trouble and the boss had a "thing" for her, so he would fire all the ones she started fights with, saying they had started it. Bonuses were not equal all around. The favorites got more bonus than the ones who called out the boss on his unfair behavior.
*My co-workers were mostly just trying to make a living on the pathetic wage paid at Maid Pro. Started at $8.50 than you earned $0.50 raise a month, but only up to $10.00.
*The hardest part of my job was being sent on solo missions to clean 2000 square foot houses. The second was lack of good cleaning equipment and supplies. Equipment always breaking and the office was always running out of towels and cleaners.
*The most enjoyable part of this job was when I quit. The second part was no weekend and no holiday work.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – July 31, 2016
Do work for this company . The owner in the Queens location is a racist . They talk about black ppl like if they were animals . I'm Spanish and regardless no one should talk about their employees like that. I was getting paid $9 per hour but supposedly with tips it comes out to $12 . Also if you are new they only give you part time hours and the owner shows up with out letting you know to the residence . I was in the bathroom when this happened and he didn't even knock . I didn't even get my last week of pay . This company is part of a national chain and they just let anyone buy into the business . The owner didn't even have a background in cleaning . Save yourself the trouble and do not apply . WARNING !!!!!!!

Service Provider (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 17, 2016
I would not recommend anyone to work here. The management does not know what they are doing. You hardly ever get any hours. The supervisor is just rude treats you like you're nothing. so much "wrong "things that happen at this company. It should be shut down.
Maid/Housekeeping Cleaner (Current Employee) – Fruitland Park, FL – June 9, 2016
Sometimes I have to buy my own cleaning products, time in houses are rediculous, the prices charged for some of theses houses are not enough. Management dont go out and look at the houses before they send workers to clean them. $65-$75 for a house that is totally nasty. And when people cancel their service that takes from you seems like you should get at least 1 hour due to having to survive. You only get paid for what ever time allowed in home, so if you doing laundry over the time allowed then you are working for free. ( What? ???)
Area Coordinator (Current Employee) – Cypress, TX – May 17, 2016
I have been working for maidpro cypress for eleven months. The owners are very understanding and great!! The turnover is very high due to bad employees that don't want to come to work and rather utilize government services instead of working a day. A pro quit on Monday and had Texas Human Services calling the office on Wednesday. SMH!! Overall I am happy with my job
I worked at the Cypress Texas location. Hours are sporadic. One week you might have five hours, the next twenty. Communication was horrible. I quit this past Mon because I couldn't live on the amount of hours and the low pay. My final check was supposed to be directly deposited this morning. It's not in my account. Neither of the owners will respond to me regarding the matter. I worked hard for this company, got all tens on my online reviews. I'm disappointed by the lack of professionalism. Have left a message with the corporate office this morning regarding my check. Fingers crossed....DON'T WORK HERE!
Cleaner/Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Williamsville, NY – May 4, 2016
Owner of this location is terrible. Talks behind your back, belittles you, plays favorites. Makes promises to send you to houses close to your home and then turns around and sends you to houses that are farthest away. Travel pay isn't even worth the wear and tear and miles you put on your own vehicle. The only good part of this job was the few regulars you get and got to know. They give you watered down cleaning products and expect you to do a wonderful job. Vacuum cleaners that spark when you plug them in, not mention that you're carring 2 heavy ancient vacuums in and out of every house.
