Housekeeper in San Jose:
"I would charge by the job not the hour."
I pay taxes and pay into the State Disability. I am looking for a better job now. I love what I do. You can charge by the job not the hour. Also, use green cleaning supplies for better health down the road.

"Have to like your work....."
Take pride in what you do ..... Making it twice takes time and is upsetting not only to you but to others as well......
Housekeeper in Bellevue:
Put all of your effort into it. Be thorough. Take pride in yourself & care. If you have an "Oh well" attitude, that won't get far.

Housekeeper in San Francisco:
Be very careful about a live-in. You need time off and some employers find it hard when you live with them. You should always have a place of your own to go to. Most employment companies will let you know the whole truth about employers. Their experience that they have had with other people they have placed in an environment. If going through an agency make sure.
You have a contract that will give you a specified amount of time to move if you are accepting a live in situation.
Make sure you always have a contract spelling out vacation, salary, overtime, sick time and health. Do not live it to a spoken agreement. Most employers will do this for you.
