House Keeping (Current Employee) – Washington, D.C., US – December 4, 2018
My typical day of work would consist of going to customer's houses and cleaning. A bit of traveling is required for this job but its okay because the pay is good. The management is great because you work through an app independently, so as long as you arrive on time and prompt ready to work there's no hard part about this job or management. I really enjoy being able to schedule to work whenever i want because that gives me time to also plan accordingly for my daily lifestyle as well.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Arizona – September 27, 2018
We are rated and tipped on our job performance.....that will never come out good for the worker nor the customer. Reason, never enough time to do a good job. Great if the place you are cleaning is in a somewhat normal state....but good luck with that! WOW, I’ve seen unreal places that maybe clean once a year, some even worse.....2 years with this company, when are they going to figure out, its about the job, not how many bed/bathrooms they have. Horribly stressful trying to do a good job in the time given!
The ONLY! Positive is you chose when and where you work.....but even that can be deceiving once you get to the job and realize, your 2/3 Hour job should be a 4/5 Hour job.
No IDEA (Former Employee) – NO WORK ZONE – September 23, 2018
I started working for them if that’s what you call it they have you accept 1 job when you start from there I couldn’t find any jobs for 10 days then came the day for my first job and it was deleted no job for the day I get a message from a marketing rep for them saying if I complete my first job by Sunday I can get a bonus I tell her I haven’t been able to find one job and I been checking 5-12 times a day she says oh let me check then let’s me know nothing available in my area I can ask to have other areas added or add cleaning. I write support like she said and ask this they deny my request saying that that don’t do that so the pros can focus on the jobs and not accepting too much work yet I explained I found no jobs in 10 days so focusing on my 0 jobs my 10 days of availability 120 hours for 0 dollars a hour was a joke this company will go under its only a matter of time. It’s what happens when a idiot starts a company and hires all his friends for upper management.
Plenty of free time with lack of work
Poor management, disorganized, No pay, no jobs to be selected
House Cleaner (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – September 23, 2018
I worked independently as a housecleaner witch I prvided my own supplies. To do household chores for clients. Such as Windows Laundry and everday house chores. I worked on my own schedule. The best part about the job is working when i wanted. The only downside is not being able to talk to a live person especially when my check was short.
Cleaner (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 12, 2018
At handy I was able to work when I wanted to work which is perfect for me being that I had another job at the same time. Handy allowed me to make extra money to support myself and my family. Working for handy I met new people, learned how to use new cleaning products And got paid everyday.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 8, 2018
My time at HANDY was good until I realized that not having a supervisor that I could communicate with directly was unfair. At the end of my employment here I was very upset that I could not voice my feelings to the company concerning customers I served.
Plenty of freedom, and independence.
There was no support from the company, no benefits either.
Quick money, you can work when you want but overall the job needs improvement
Cleaner (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – September 7, 2018
Quick Money Work when you want Cancellation fees are to high Company doesn't support their employees Handy's rating system needs improvement Hard to get in contact with company Tips are horrible A lot of work and little pay
Quick money and you can work when you want
Company doesn't not support their employee, tips are not good, a lot of work and little pay
INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 4, 2018
Not a job to pay bills your schedule changes daily you can’t make decent money and the bookings are very low we as contractors get charged a cancel fee while the customers cancel same day and we only get partial pay it’s hard to move up the ladder to receive more money and our rating goes down no matter how much we work or how good we are
Contractor (Current Employee) – California – August 12, 2018
This is the only place I have worked for that you can not contact anyone by a phone call, everything is done by e-mail. The sad thing about this they never respond back in a timely manner, so this makes the customer very unhappy and who suffers? You do! by getting a negative review.
What really is upsetting, you may have to drive 90 plus miles for a $30.00 job, its not worth it.
Cleaner (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 11, 2018
Handy was a job a friend told me about I can make my own hours I can’t stop working when I want I can’t take the job any and everywhere I go. I love that I can’t start and stop when ever I won’t and they also let us keep in touch with the clients.
Camp Counselor (Former Employee) – Pompano Beach, FL – August 4, 2018
It was a very enjoyable place to be and the children created a fun atmosphere. I will say that the work was a bit difficult (having to clean after the children, transporting carts across the campus, and lifting things at least 2-3 times my weight) it was still an amazing job.
Handy Person (Current Employee) – Austin Texas – July 13, 2018
- you cannot speak to anyone regarding anything.... everything is done via email - the app doesn’t work well at at all - they fine the employee for everything - pay only covers hourly wage not gas and supplies - people are rude!! And expect you to do more than what they originally requested - they hold your pay without reason or notification - LAST MINUTE cancellations are typical. About 75% of my bookings got cancelled last minute and I have a 5 star rating!!! - difficult to book multiple cleans in a week with them unless you want to work weekends and weekend nights
