But dear, If can dont take trasnfer maid? I've tried 2before but both cannot make it. Most of my friend tried transfer also cannot make it.
Let's think this way: People already reject them why we still want them? Some agent may say it's employer problem that why they reject. You dont know the agent got lie or not. (try ask titian for ex-employer contact, she will help you ask the ex-employer if can give you or not, then you can call to ask the truth cause i did call ex-employer before)
If you encounter agent say: the maid dont't want cause not enough food to eat or too many things to do.WAH this kind never take. LOL
If I dont't have to, I will not consider trf maids. But my situation here does not allow. Got played out by current maid. Not sure if her story is true but she with me 3 years, I like to give her the benefit of doubt. I have liaise with Titien n I also hope their stories are true. I have been conned by maid agencies before too n have tried to be careful. Sometimes interview also no use. Just have to trust our gut feelings. wish me luck. I will update on the new maid when she come work for me
Waa, there are so many enterprising mums nowadays!! Kudos to the Internet. Too bad my kids big alrdy i will browse your blog to see if you have anything teenagers like. My teeange kids shop online too.
Incidentally i freelance as bookkeeper for companies. My mobile is 81335544 if anybody require one. Cheers
Dear everyone, I am so sad. This is my first attempt at maid employment and met this wonderful lady called Lilian who promised me my maid in two months but after payment, I was told she was not a full time staff there and a monster took over my case. When I went back to the agency today again to ask for an update as I am concern they might just fold (small agency) as it has been 2 weeks from the promised date of 15 October. I was served by terrible service and he threw my concern out of the window. We had an argument and he said he did not want to do my business and wanted to refund my money. After waiting for two months, I received such comments is really saddening. This has taught me that not only the maid is important, their agency is also equally so. I have decided to take the refund and clean my house my self. Just to share my painful experience to all the mums here.
By the way they have a branch at Bukit Timah and Hougang. I attached their website here. Hope no one else will fall for signing up with one and suddenly changing to another for execution.
new maids also have their own worries.
Thanks for sharing dear. It's great that you did advise which is the agent at least other mummies wunt fall for them I've tried agent at hougang before cannot make it one. Heard alot coment on hougang maid agent also cannot make it.
If you really want get maid i can intro the good agent that i also reco at here. Her name is Titian. Her service is good.
Or you consider part time maid who clean the house once a week or so if you scare of maid agent. Actually maid also have maid pressure if we really get it. It's lucky n sway tingy. good luck dear
i am writing to share my experience when engaging my new maid.
For the first time i decided to use a new agency, 1st Allbest Human Resource Pte Ltd.
I did a call interview about 1mth before my maid came.
When maid came, 2-3wks after, she spoke to my family members n i started to suspect she is not the person i interviewed.
My maid said her employer interviewed her 1day before her flight to sg.
I dont want to say much becos i dont want implications, but anyone wanting to use this agency, think 3 times.
The so called interview can be fake.
yvonne, does Titan provides Myanmar maids?
Hi, just a piece of advise, do not go to Twins S Employment located at Toa payoh. I am currently employing an Indonesia maid from them, when I ask for replacement maid on Aug this yr, they drag my time and never follow up. I always have to call them to check. Until now, I am still waiting for a replacement maid. The owner of the agency avoid my calls like anything. Very disappointed with their service. I am looking for another agency now. This agency drag my time and made me have to cross over to the new scheme to give maid off days every week, which will be another $70-100 extra cash I have to fork out. By the way, I called the agent last week and finally the owner picked up my call by chance. I think she's quite shock that I called. I complain to her that I am still waiting for their follow up and she keep saying she got no maid now and ask me to give them 1 week. Ok, now more than 1 week is up and still no reply or any calls from them.
I am going to give up this agent already, really no hope. So I hope all mummies out there can recommend me a good and responsible agent. Quite urgent for my case. Thanks!
HI Ivy Teo & hpc,
Can you share with me the agency name? Thanks.
HI Ivy Teo & hpc,
Can you share with me the agency name? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
I found my maid through this agency: AJS Manpower - AJS Manpower - ..:: Welcome ::..
She is amazing and I am very happy with her service. She is a transfer. I have her for 10 months now and it's been great. I can trust her with the baby and she does take care of the house quite well.
The person in charge of the agency is Joy, she is Filipino as well. I found the helpers there well treated. They generally ask for $500 per month and all their Sundays and bank Holidays. The most important is to ask them questions about what they liked to do or not in their previous jobs, and check online on MOM how many employers they had previously.
You can also contact the former employer, just to be sure they are not hiding anything bad.
Will PM you...
dont't use ADP. They came across as efficient and with good Filipino transfer maids, but after spending 3 weeks going through bio data, and spending 2 Sundays interviewing, the end result is disappointing. I have at separate occasions offered 2 maids a job, giving them the conditions they asked for, and they ended up speaking with the agency and rejecting the offer, without giving any reason to me. I was totally baffled. The agency seems to be discouraging the maids from working for local families, preferring expat families. I wish they would tell me not to bother, so I didn't have to invest all this time, especially when I really need a helper at home!
If someone decided not to get maid cause now maid so expensive and the new law. I can intro a cleaning company.
They do spring cleaning and do weekly cleaning service. Most of all their price is very reasonable and they are Singaporean.
Hi, I am lookin for a maid for the first time. Anyone who has good recommendation of agency can please pm me??
Just wanna share that I have finally found a maid! Will be expecting her today.
Here're my experiences with the 2 recommended agents by the forumers:
Contacted her. She only response to phone calls. Doesn't SMS. Even though it was CNY period, she responded very promptly. She had a transfer maid and was quick to arrange for us and even catered for an interview at her place. Unfortunately, my parents r kinda pangdang, didn't want the maid. Didn't hear from Titan ever since. Some people may not take to the way she speaks as she can be quite casual and too quick to response.
Agent fee $1288 with 1 replacement
Joyce from Elite
It was easy corresponding with her. We like her professionalism. Being first time employers she guided us on what we needed to do. She can e contacted via email, SMS and phone calls. She has a ready pool for us to select from based on our requests. Even though we rejected the first round of selected maids, she continued to inform us whenever she has someone new. We truly appreciated that. She wasn't pushy and was still very professional even after we shared that we had gotten maid from another agency. Our maid concern is just the high agent fee. If you have the budget, she's a nice agent to work with.
