Do I need to have cleaning experience?
NO – we’ll train you! However, professional house cleaning is not easy and it isn’t for everyone.
Here’s what successful cleaning technicians have in common:
- A great work ethic
- A love of cleaning
- Attentive to detail
- A desire to be the best
If you possess these qualities we can teach you everything you need in order to be a great cleaning technician.
Do I need a car?
No!!!! We walk, bike ride, or use SEPTA to commute around to our clients in Center City. Since we do not carry supplies from home to home, getting from one client to the next is relatively easy. Plus we optimize your schedule so that your regular clients are in the same area of the city on the same day.
How much can I earn?
During the first two weeks of training you’ll earn $12 per hour. After that, your pay will be linked directly to your performance. If you are working full time, Monday through Friday, you can expect to earn between $625 – $750 per week + tips, and have opportunities to earn bonus incentives.
What benefits or perks do you offer?
- paid training
- paid holidays
- performance bonuses
- regular FUN company outings
- FULL time hours all year long. That means no slumps and no seasons.
- The perk that our staff values the most is a set schedule during daytime hours.
Are there opportunities for advancement?
Yes! We are always growing so we are always looking to help people advance with the company.
What is a day of cleaning like?
Honestly, it’s a work-out! But, more specifically, after 2 – 3 months of training and team cleaning, you’ll transition to mostly cleaning solo for your set of regular clients. Most of our clients are bi-weekly or monthly, which means you will become familiar with how to provide them great custom service! So, if you enjoy working independently (and hate sitting at a desk all day), you’re probably a great fit!
Each day, you will have 2 or 3 homes (depending on the size) to clean, located close to one another. You will usually get to meet each client on their first cleaning, and then you’ll be their assigned technician every 2 weeks. Most days, you’ll go directly to your morning client’s home, but there are mornings you’ll need to stop by our center city office first to pick up keys and any needed supplies.
Our average size home takes a little over 3 hours to clean, and then you will head to your afternoon appointment. Your typical day would end around 4:30 or 5pm. So, you will always be on time to pick up your kids!
Though this is a typical day, no two days are the same (and many of us love that about this job!). If one of your regular clients “skips,” you will probably be on a “team” cleaning, doing the first cleaning for a new client. Team jobs are a great opportunity to get to learn from other techs, and a chance to start getting to know each other. Each of us is wonderfully unique, but we also share a lot in common!
How do I check on my application?
Due to the high volume of job applications we only have time to contact candidates who show the best potential for success with our company. Please do not call our office to check on your application as we will be unable to help you.
If we’re interested we’ll contact you by email first so be sure the email address on your application is correct and check your inbox regularly; including the spam and promotion folders. If you haven’t been contacted within one monthly of applying we invite you to apply again at a later time.
Do you conduct background checks?
Yes, due to the nature of employment, we have very strict requirements and most people with a “record” will not meet those requirements. Our position is not a good fit if you have a “record”.
Where is your office located?
Our office is right in Center City; however, you won’t come to the office every day. This is the area that we currently service: https://evergreenmaids.com/service-areas/philly-house-cleaning/
