What is your hiring process?
I am having the toughest time. I make a disclaimer on every job ad I do, that you must have transportation, must be available, reliable and you do a test cleaning that's NOT paid and you must be willing to go to different areas of the city.
And behold, I get "my babysitter is in the hospital", "my car is broke down" "gas is too high" "that's too far" "do I get paid for my test cleaning" "will I get paid Friday for working this week" "I like to clean"/yet they will NOT get on their hands and knees.
I'm having sooooo much trouble finding decent workers. When they do a test cleaning it's not paid, and it's about 2-3 hours. Basically this is an interview. Then they are at minimum wage for 30 days, which is not very much but I was getting tired of paying people decent wages for half--- work.
I know this is a hard business, however I'm disappointed in the work ethic *even when they were paid better* of many people who claim to SO badly need a job only to
"get stuck in the driveway because the garbage truck is blocking it." LOL
Any advice would do.
Thanks : )
