    I worked at The Cleaning Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People that are not managers are good people to work with. Well, mostly, It's an ok job, but you do not want to stay there

    Cons

    Terrible managers. Very bureaucratic. Open environment is like having big brother looking over your shoulder. Micro manager. They need new management

    Advice to Management

    Look at lower management and see why people are unhappy.

    I worked at The Cleaning Authority full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You got to travel and have weekly pay. There were some really awesome trainers like Robert M that made the day so much easier and made it fun. Seeing how other people lived was cool. Good daily workout.

    Cons

    There was a lot of drama between the girls. The tipping system was confusing and often left floaters without tips. You had to drive your own vehicle with no reimbursement for wear and tear. Health hazard with dust, chemicals and over exertion.

    Advice to Management

    Better training with managers and people who come in to check on the houses. higher pay for mileage.

    I worked at The Cleaning Authority full-time

    Pros

    Weekends off, weekly pay, major holidays off, no manager breathing down your back, no experience necessary, cleaners are nice, Lynn and Fawn are awesome.

    Cons

    Owner Mike Cavallaro is a terrible human being! Do not work at The Cleaning Authority in Glenshaw Pa!!!!!
    Pay is never the same, no pay stubs really, owner will degrade you and attack you personally if you stand up for yourself he'll just fire you (I've seen him do it). This man is a disgusting person who respects no one! Treats the employees who are working hard badly and constantly threatens to fire them. NO JOB SECURITY!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Sell!

    I worked at The Cleaning Authority full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Steady full time work, fast paced. Most of the co workers were nice and easy to get along with. Not a bad place to get a paycheck if you have a limited skill set.

    Cons

    It was very hard to schedule a day off. You were expected to come in to work even if you were very sick and could make others sick.

    I have been working at The Cleaning Authority full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with really good people. Co-workers and the Owners. The Owners are very generous and caring. We work hard but get rewarded. A lot of the customers tip really good so you make more money than you think. Trainer is awesome and they have all of the supplies you need. They have company cars so you don't have to drive your own but if you want to you can make extra money each week because they pay you mileage. I have been working here for several months. and would recommend to anyone that wants to get a new skill. What is really cool is that because this is a physical job I have lost weight and am toning up.:)

    Cons

    Sometimes we have to work with people we don't really want to. If you ask them they will try to put you with someone you like. I understand you sometimes have to do what you have to do. Sometimes the work is harder than other days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring awesome people and keep caring the way you do.
