Are you looking for a cleaning job?
Many cleaning businesses are looking for workers, and we are here to help you feel confident in asking the right questions to ensure the cleaning company you choose is the best fit for you.
What training does your prospective employer provide? Even if you have cleaning experience from a previous job, you want to ensure training happens. Each company will have its procedures, and thorough training will give you the confidence you need when ready to work independently.
What locations does the company cover, and what area will I be working in? Look for a local company to where you live, the less time spent on the road driving to appointments, the more money you can make in your cleaning job.
What is the distance between clients? This is a fundamental question to ask. The longer the distance between the clients, the less money you can make in your day. Ensure the clients are assigned close to each other to ensure you can earn maximum dollars.
What is the pay rate? Make sure you have a clear understanding of pay rates and payment terms. Most cleaning companies will require you to have an ABN, which is free and easy to apply for.
Are there any incentives and bonuses? It can be challenging to find good, hardworking and honest people in the cleaning industry, so make sure you are working for a company that values and rewards their teams with bonuses for outstanding performance.
Are the equipment and products you need provided? Some companies will give you all of the equipment and products you need or require you to have your kit. Providing your equipment can be expensive in terms of initial costs and ongoing maintenance, so check this out with the cleaning company.
And last but not least, what ongoing support is provided? Whether you are working on your own or in a team, make sure an administrative unit supports you and that you can contact with any questions, client support, or issues any time of the day or night. It would help if you had a team you could trust, so you do not have to worry about the logistics other than looking after your cleaning jobs and clients’ homes.
Do not be afraid to ask about any other essential factors important to you. For example, if you have a passion for eco-friendly products, you may only want to work with a company that uses eco-friendly products. So whatever else is essential, make sure you ask.
Working in the cleaning industry certainly has its benefits, and it is the ultimate work-life balance that gives you the happy job you are aspiring to have.
