So I'm setting up a cleaning business and whilst being nosey and checking out the competition research I read this on a websites vacancy section
Due the nature of the job, especially in domestic cleaning, you'll need to have high standards, be honest and above all, you have to be completely reliable.
Cases like no shows-up at appointed interview with the client, Ive changed my mind, I couldnt be there as I missed my last bus, I couldnt be there as I had to stay with my kids, I couldnt call as I havent credit on my phone, I forgot I have appointment with my Doctor/GP/Dentist, I forgot I have a course/class/seminar at that time, or any other foolish and childish excuses are NOT ACCEPTABLE and it is not part of a professional cleaner profile.
If you feel you will fall under these situations, please DO NOT consider to proceed furthermore in being part of our team as it will be a waste of precious time and money for us, First Cleaning Solutions, for client, and, nonetheless, for you. At the same time we understand the emergencies situations, but we cannot accept any lack of common sense or any behaviour which may be construed as being troublemaker and waste timer.
If that's what they say upfront before you get the job, I dread to think the feeling amongst the staff working for these guys is like. Is it just me or do people really just advertise like this now to weed out the non committed? I used to be a housekeeper and sometimes the moral was bloody awful. The thought of sometimes going into work when your boss treats you like shit was enough to make you ill. IMO I feel they wouldn't advertise like this if it was any other type of job other than cleaners.
Sorry for the long post, just felt a bit sad and pissed off at this
Why is it a bad thing to weed out the "non-committed"? I'm afraid I don't see your point.
Yes, it's written badly - but I see the sense. Imagine if YOU were the boss and you have a commitment to a client and your employee doesn't show up, doesn't phone you, doesn't answer their phone and then finally says "yeh well bovvered forgot innit".
