I worked at Merry Maids full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Being pretty fit after working there for a while due to the hard work. Easy job to get due to their desperation. Some people will tip you pretty well and are very nice.

Cons

The wages, the management and the drama. Some places you will have to clean should be condemned.

Advice to Management

Care a little more about your employees that work so hard for you and don't promise wages the employee will never see upon hiring.

    Pros

    you get paid per house you clean, so the more you can do in a day, the more you can make. meet lots of people, make friends with clients in their homes, and with your team mate.

    Cons

    very hard physical labor, they will burn you out, use you up, and ask for more. no opportunity for raises, or moving up in the company. They have a strange policy of not allowing office staff to be friends with the cleaners. manipulative training tactics....they reimburse you for mileage, they say its for "general wear and tear on your vehicle" but its pennies; meanwhile the miles keep racking up.

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciative to your employees (in the form of larger paychecks!!!) they bust their butts for your company, make the customers want to keep your service, and you don't give them much for their blood sweat and antiperspirant!!

    I worked at Merry Maids full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid holidays,and vacation after a year.Love the customers! I worked for Merry Maids in Colorado and Hawaii both were ran very well,management did a great job.When you care about your customers and workers it shows!

    Cons

    The con to Merry Maids is the Huntsville AL office,the owners are shady and only care about their bottom line.They send girls out to clean with little training,and don't drug test like they are required to.The houses are often under price and if your commission for the day is less than minimum wage they still only pay you the commission.They have had girls out as late as 10 pm! They often aren't honest about how much you can make and advancement within their office.They are quick to write you up if a customer complains but rarely give any praise.If you are a outstanding cleaner, your hard work with be rewarded with you going to fix all the houses the other workers mess up and the hardest customers to please will end up as yours.They don't treat their customers any better.They don't pay to fix things employee's damage, more than one customer has had to sue them.
