    House Cleaner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Colorado Springs, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Colorado Springs, CO
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Cleaning Authority in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I spoke to the manager for less than 20 seconds and she only asked about transport. I drove 20 mins for a one on one interview and I got nothing. The rest of the interview process was the application and then a questionnaire. It was a lot of questions about weed usage and your opinions about that and the government and if you think all laws are good. Also, they ask a lot of questions about stealing. Basically, I felt like they assumed that since I was cleaning houses I must be a drug using, law breaking, thieving individual....or that's what they have been hiring. That's not a group I want to get caught up with.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about 15 different questions about Marijuana alone. It was borderline ridiculous. The question that surprised me the most was about cell phone use. They have a policy that you can not for any reason ever have your cell phone. In fact, you have to leave it at the office before you go, Then they went on to state that you have to be there by 7 am and sometimes you wont get back to the office until 6pm on long days and you are only allotted one 30 min lunch break all day. So, I can't let my family know I'm running late and I'll basically work myself to death or starve to death...either way...its slavery IMO   View Answer

    Cleaner Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at The Cleaning Authority.

    Interview Details

    Very fast. They give you an application. Ask for last 3 places worked, 3 references etc. After filling out my application and handing it to the interviewer she had me wait in the waiting area while she looked it over in her office. I heard her whispering to the other girl in the office but I couldn't make out what she was saying. When she came out and approached me she had a very long face on. She said that after reviewing my resume and seeing that I've worked as a receptionist, I am "used to sitting", therefore I wouldn't be "a good fit" since this is "hard work".

    I am clearly able-bodied and this struck me as outright discrimination on her part to rule me out since I've done desk work. Ridiculous. They just let a reliable hard worker with transportation walk out the door because of this woman's presumptions. After all of this, she goes on to tell me about the job anyway and says she will speak to her supervisor about me to see what he thinks.

    The pay rate is lower than some other cleaning companies too.

    Professional House Cleaner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Bend, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Bend, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Cleaning Authority in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I answered an ad on Craigslist for house cleaning, and received an email back the same day, asking me to come in the next day for an interview. I sat down with Paul for about 30 minutes, and my first impression of him was rather rude - he kept looking at the clock and had obviously scheduled himself a little short on time because there was something else he said needed to attend. We discussed the terms and whether this was something that could even work for me.
    The same day, I was called for a phone interview with his son, who makes the final decision on hiring. This conversation took about 20 minutes, and I was asked all the normal interview questions.
    I was not informed that I didn't receive the job (on the day they said they would call), but a week later they called me back with an offer, which I foolishly accepted.
    They did not check (or even ask for) my references.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Cleaning Authority in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was very brief, almost desperate. But since I was also desperate I took the job. I learned very quickly it was a rotating door as to who came and went at this business. No experience necessary.
