PEM is an agency that offers confinement lady services and they also have filipino maids. But i heard reviews that their maids could be horrible.. i am still scouting for maids and after scouring through alot of indon biodatas.. we have decided to go for filipinos instead... i have spoken to Miss Titian and she seems very pleasant.. but not sure if she has filipino maids...

Not all maid agency have high fees. Ultimately, it is what expectations you have of them.
Hi,

would appreciate some advice on hiring a maid and if you have good agencies to rec i'd really appreciate it. *sigh* my perfect helper of 7 years is goinghome soon and i have twins to look after... so far i have had a relatively good experience with AUK maid agency at Bukit timah shopping centre. I also had swift responses from UNiversal (but they seem quite hard sell!). The fees are about 1.7k+ and 1.9K +...very ex. i would like to know if anyone has heard any horror stories with these agencies..or any agencies i ought to avoid?

would appreciate some advice

Depends which source country are you looking for. Some agencies are better in certain countries.

I have just selected a domestic helper via an agent. Waiting for the documents to be processed... If all's good I will recommend the agent... So far her service has been excellent... And they only specialise in Filipinos.
 
Hi,

Below are the agents rate for you to compare.
Chong Pang Maid Agency - Agent fee at Sgd 688
PEM Maid Agency - Agent fee at Sgd 988

Number of Maid off day : 1 day *

*can be neg with no off day but compensation

Important : To employ maid, first we need to know what we want our maid to do. What is the first, sec and third priority before employing them.

If the first priority is the baby, suggest u get the maid (even work oversea) or have children and is married.

Share my experience : I have 5 children age of 12, 6, 1 and 2 months twins. I employ maid is to help my mother in law but I am regret to employ a Flipino maid at age of 25 single which i though that she may hv energy to play with my 1 yr old girl and click with other ages kids but im wrong. I gave birth to my twins on feb 2013 so i do a switch to let her handle my newborn babiea cos she cannot take care of my 1 yr old girl. The bio data show she can handle newborn very good status but for what we see is not. My advice to you is better to be very sure on yourself what u want them to do before employ. And also the handphone, do not let give them the phone cos my maid used while she is taking care of my one yr old girl. I hv a son at the age of 12 yrs and i know sometime he is playful but my maid dont seem to be mature enough and had a argue with my boy.One last thing, don't also give her a habit by helping them everytime cos this will make them to became lazy. All thia is true cos it already happen to me. :(
And now I need to get a replacement maid same Flipino but age at 42 and hope that she is one I want.

Hi Doreen, What's your experience with these 2 agencies? As I have read that PEM is not very professional. Thanks!

Hi,
In terms of agency fee Chong Pang maid Agency is cheap.
In terms of professional Chong Pang maid Agency (AMK branch) is better.
In terms of employ good maid is by luck.

If Chong Pang Agency do not hv the idea maid I want then PEM will only come into the picture becos this is my second low agency fee.
