Is it just me or is this topic becoming more and more annoying? We’ve gone through four maids in the past 6 months or so. Each one worse than the other. It can’t be our bad luck that all four were useless. Even after them taking the mandatory house keeping class before coming, they still don’t know how to do the basics!! Come on! That’s bullshit. Washing a spoon to make it clean is common sense.
When the agents increased the price to bring a maid………we didn’t say anything.
They increased salaries to a minimum of 90 kd (for a filipino with no experience)……….not a peep from us.
A filipino with experience can reach up to 120 kd per month.
In this case I expect top notch service, I’m talking personal assistant, house management, appointment making, massage and nutritional advise service. I swear we had one recently who couldn’t distinguish the difference between men’s and women’s clothes.
Despite treating them with the utmost respect, to the extent of pampering sometimes, they still don’t want to work (we’ve been asking all the people we know how they treat their help and in comparison, the ones that work for us are like taking a holiday in Bali). And if you try to be fair and treat them like employer and employee, they cry, get upset and don’t want to work. “Take me to office sir!”
I can’t go on rambling about this anymore at this time. There is so much to nit pick on this subject.
So far, we’re just chinning it and hoping for the best.
