Employing maid

Hi everyone,

Another alternative is to get a part time maid, be it freelance or from cleaning company. This temporary solution might turn out to be a blessing if you chance upon a good maid. You will also not have any obligation tied to you for 2 years. Just my 2 cents worth. Thanks. :tlaugh:

Hi all, I am new here, I have a good helper at home so that I can focus on my work. If you need a maid you need to find an agent who can do a good match on your expectation and requirements, express your need openly so that the agent can understand you. So far I do not any bad experience with my agent. The advantage of working with her is that she herself is a boss and a responsible person. You can call her at 98573533 (Yvonne) if you need her service.

I am transferring my maid out to another employer and my maid's agent is handling all the paperwork. I read from MOM's website that as the current employer, I should also receive an IPA (in-principle approval) to state that the application for transfer is approved and it will state the transfer date. However, I have not received anything in my mailbox. Anyone have any experience to share? As I am aware that the maid is still under my responsibility until the wp is issued under the new employer's name. Anyone can advise please?

I transferred my maid years back but I dun remember receiving IPA. What is do received is from MOM on when my levy stops and when my maid officially transferred.

recommended maid agency

Go to faith employment agency.
Getting a good maid is not guaranteed.
But engaging a reliable agency is more important. Thats why I use faith employment agency.

I would like to recommend Raffles Employment, you can check their transfer rate also extremely low, the lady owner is happy also to suggest to me which maid to take, and compared to all agencies which i called , she is very friendly, made me feel like I was talking to a friend. Anyway coming back to maids, she always take in maids with good record. But I ended up taking a fresh maid, and 2nd maid also from her.

Hi Mummies,

I m helping my maid to find employer here before sending her back to agency. I have to let her go due communication problem with my MIL as she speak very little English.

For more details, please contact me at 90694483. Thank you.

The key thing is to be patient with the new maid since she is new to you, your culture, your environment. But make sure you don't pamper her (i pampered my first maid and I regretted totally)... give her what's needed i.e. (1) proper meals (whatever your family eat, she eats, she cannot be choosy over food. Some friends I know tell their maid if I haven't eat, you cannot eat also. But I adopted the "time to eat, you eat. Don't have to wait for me" approach. They work whole day and I am sure they get hungry. If I eat late means my maid gotta wait!), (2) enough sleep (8 hours a day... enough rest and sleep is a must), (3) daily routine (gives her a set of daily routine chores - sweep floor, mop floor, wash clothes etc etc and then tell her after routine chores completed, go around the house and open drawers or cabinets and clean etc etc).

Tell her other than the routine chores, she can take her time to complete but must find something and get herself busy. Don't give the maid opportunity to rest too often or too much as very quickly, she will become lazy.

My agent's FB page got an article about first time hirer - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=538501982891014&set=a.409261659148381.94714.386757891398758&type=1&theater (www.facebook.com/eelitpa)... Read it before, very helpful!

Good luck!

Thinking of employing a maid after I give birth.
Any agency to recommend and how much is the cost?


It depends on you where you choose, in every agencies have different attitude. But when i confine before, i get a maid from Pem confinement nanny agency, i like there agency because they train well, and their maid/nanny are very presented. The decision is in your hand, so take it.

I having a transferred indo maid from my aunt and she is 34 yrs old. She does the housechores quite slow and not so clean. She hopes to work with me for about 4 to 5 yrs. She just came to my place on 8 Feb and telling me that she might want to go back in July next yr. The previous maid was from myanmar and she was very young and can cleans my house "superclean". Myarmar maid was with me for 3 months as she always like to take my charger with out my permission. Sometimes give me black face when ask to do additional work. Regretted to let go the myarmar maid..
