I'm looking for a maid after the infant care centre told me that they have no free slot for my 3 month baby girl. May I know where to find a good maid? New to this maid hiring stuff. Hope to know more before hiring one to help out. Thank you in advance.
HI Worth lady, not all maid are bad. There are some that is really realiable but just make sure that you are ready to trust new member of the family.
A good agent dont't guarantee you a good helper. you need some luck for getting a good one. On top of that how you manage the helper is impt. I'm a strict employer but I treat my helper well. When my helper called home she tell her mother her employer is very good. I'm very lucky first time employing, I managed to employ someone suitable for my household.
Before employing, I ask around those who employ helper. I found something in common in those who dont't have major issues with helper. They prioritize helper work n be reasonable about the work given. They dont't mirco managed n close 1 eyes on those non prioritize work.
They are good helper. you need good luck n management skill.
Hope it help.
I agree a good agent doesn't guarantee a good helper. If we found a good helper, we must treasure her. A good helper is hard to come by.
Hi, I am working at maid agency. My baby have been cared by my maid only from 8 months old. My mother in law work night shift so day time she can help me supervise my maid a bit. She is able to handle my baby now, only then I can leave my son alone in peace under her care. My son is 20 months now. So, make sure your maid can handle your baby before you leave baby alone under her care. Train her for sometimes first, every family have different lifestyles and daily routine, let your maid adapt to your family first.

There are very few Indonesian maid biodatas at the moment due to changes in Indonesian govt policy and also Hari Raya coming.
Many of my customers still prefer to look for Indonesian maid.
I will update if there is any news
What is the change in Indonesian govt policy?
Indonesian maids dont't really speak English right?
Not quite true. Some Indo can and some Indo cant speak English. For my experience, Indo maid can pick up the language fast. After 1 year, they even understand Hokkien but cant speak. One of my previous helpers couldnt speak English well, but she could write on a piece of paper to express what she wanted to tell me.
Some Filipino maids cant speak English. One of my friends returned her Filipino maid after 1 week, the maid could not speak English. Another friend interviewed a new Filipino maid, and to her surprise, the maid could not speak English. I found out that those maids come from rural area cant speak English.
