Company Culture is bleak.
Support from management
They act like they support you, but when the chips are down they really don't.
You need teamwork....or you won't make it here. Have a lackluster person, and you go down on the ship with them.
Freedom to work independently
You work independently most of the time. Spot checks are performed daily, mostly on new employees, or if management doesn't like someone, or believes they are not doing well.
Owners try to stay upbeat and positive. Unless they hear something from you they don't want to hear.
They favor females because more of them apply.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Most older people can't do the job. Most older people are smart enough to steer clear of the place. If one does apply, management and many fickle youngsters will squeeze them out if they are too slow.
If you can make it for a year, then I guess you can grow here. However, the main thing growing in this business is the owners bankroll.
Overall compensation for your work
Horrible. Low mileage reimbursement too.
Office / Work Environment
Most homes are good to work in. Some are a pigsty with nasty dogs.
They say the chemicals are green. I guess so.
Either show up every day or get docked pay! You need to work a year before time off.
Each franchise is different. One can be horrible, the other not so bad.
If you clean fast and don't mind low pay, then you are secure. Otherwise forget it.
Handicapped people probably should not work here. I guess a handicapped customer can maneuver around the main office if they want to. But why?
You find yourself working in bad conditions in the winter time. Ever try driving up and down mountain driveways in snow and ice, then lugging your supplies to the mansion door?
Extremely challenging, especially if you get two or so mansions to clean in one day with a total hour allotment of 4.5 hours.
Inclusive / Diverse
They include everyone. They need to, or they won't have any applicants.
Suggestions for improvement
- Not sure if it is possible here. Keeping long term employees is essential for success. That cannot happen here. Way too much turnover. Management needs to address the issue.
What I like about the company
You get to work independently. If you get on a good team, that makes your day a good one.
What I dislike about the company
Pay is not compatible with the workload. The main owner is a head case with a poor attitude and personality. He's too old to change now. Moral is low.
