    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Merry Maids (Acworth, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online and was called a few days later for an "interview", if it can even be called that. I was merely given a job description to read and a paper application to fill out. The lady told me they were taking applications and someone would contact me. Didn't I already do that?

    Customer Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Meridian, ID
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merry Maids (Meridian, ID) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email two to three days after I applied online. This email was to set up a phone interview the following week. After a quick 15 minute interview to find out more about myself, I was scheduled for a face-to-face interview two days later. At the face-to-face interview, which was much more casual in nature than other typical interviews, I was asked many standard questions about my previous experience. After the interview, I was invited to take a cognitive test on a computer. This test took roughly 30 minutes and concluded the interview process. I was notified by email the following day that they had chosen another candidate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Merry Maids (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    Long and drawn out. From the time I was contacted until my first day in the job was about 60 days. Several interviews including the recruiter, HR manager, regional manager, and VP of operations were done. As well as IQ test, personality tests, psychological test and mock presentation were all done. I believe the process has been tweaked since I was hired but it is still very long. If I had been offered another job before this process was completed I most likely would have taken it.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Merry Maids (Yuma, AZ).

    Interview

    Called me in for an interview that day, they asked pretty general questions, seemingly just to see how honest and reliable i'd be. The manager was applying her makeup behind her desk throughout the interview. The front desk guy (who used to own the place) sat in and asked some questions too, then they asked if I could start that day. So I did.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Merry Maids (Eugene, OR) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I turned in an application after seeing an ad on Craigslist and I was called in the next day for an interview. I met with the manager and head receptionist and answered questions about prior experience and reasons for wanting to work, as well as hours I wanted to work and why I would be good for the job. They were very friendly and receptive to what I had to say, and the office was clean but not sterile-looking. They sent me off after and ended up calling me to come back for orientation the next day. I watched educational videos and the like for initial training and after answering questions, was told I was to be hired.
