Our agency takes pride in the quality of service we provide to both clients and applicants.
When we consider an applicant for a household service position, we consider many factors and qualities. The following list is not in any particular order; all are nearly equally important. Skills and knowledge can be taught; the below factors (with a few exceptions) cannot be.
- Service attitude
- Willingness to please
- Ability level
- Suitability for position
- Desire for a long-term position
- Clean driving and police records, workman’s compensation report, and verification of Social Security number
- Good command of English language
- Good references
- Performance on Employment Aptitude Test
- A giving personality, rather than a self-centered one
Experience and command of English language, of course, can change, but these take time. Most employers don’t have the time to wait for improvements of these, which is why these qualities are on this list. All of these qualities are essential for working in a home of wealth.
At Professional Domestic Services and Institute, we are committed to finding the best applicants for your home. And when we find applicants with the previously-mentioned qualities but lacking in experience, we can bring them to your standards with our professional training!
Service does not stop once you have hired an applicant from our agency. We continue to help you with any employment needs. We have developed a unique training program for household staff that represents the sincerity of our commitment to our clients’ wants and needs. This program has been proven to
enable staff to better understand your needs and expectations, as well as to empower them to provide the quality of care that your family and home require. In addition, we also offer continuing educational classes for experienced Estate Managers and Housecleaners.
