If you have, any feedback? Which agency did you use?
I'm interested in getting some part-time help.
I've checked out -mah on wheels... Very ex .. Hehe...
But in anycase, how do you find their services?
WOW!! They provide the cleaning detergent! Amazing. Maybe that's why they charge more. Thanks for the info!
I used agency before but becoz the agency paid them very low, the helpers dont't work for long, they will quit after a while.
I have a China lady who is helping me now, she will come once per week and work for 3 hours, cost $35. She is only available in the morning though. I stay in Tampines, she too stay in Tampines so it's convenient for her to come.
I see... I stay in Eunos area...
Hubby usually quite skeptical with free-lance cleaners... So that's why we're considering only to hire from agencies.
I also heard before of the high turnover. Can't be helped I guess. Hopefully if these people wanna quit, they will let us know then we will re-hire them. Hahaha. At least then we know their "pattern".
The previous China lady worked for me for 2 years when I was staying in Sengkang but after I moved to Tampines, it isnt very convenient for her. So I hired another one, recommended by my mum. She works in a coffee shop in the afternoon and as a part time helper in the morning from 9am to 12pm. Quite a hardworking lady & we are pleased with her so far.
Wooo... That's good.. Lucky you.
Care to share which agency you were with that changed 4 cleaners? Hehe.. Then I won't consider that one :P
Can't remember liaoz ^^ But i think regardless it is from agency or not, it is important we find someone who is honest, reliable and hardworking.
Hope you will get a good one to help you out ^^
Just short list a few and google, you will find some raves and rants about these agencies, then you can decide from there.
