How I hired my live in maid


Let me share with you how I hired my live in maid


Since my mom will be the trainer for the maid and she has to face the maid daily, it is essential to bring her along when choosing the maid.  She has to like the face and how they talk through watching the interview video in the Maid Agency.  It is also mandatory to let the maid agent know what are the house rules we have.  Since I have a Maid Agent who is very experienced, based on her experiences, she can usually shorten the list of suitable candidates because she has personally met, interviewed and selected the applicants.  


Here are some of the criterias we will inform the Maid Agent on for our expectations:

1) The maid has to focus on house work and cooking.  She has to like to do these activities.

2) The number of floors, rooms & toilet in the house.

3) The number of adults and children living in the house.

4) What type of pets we keep in the house and how many of them. The maid must not be afraid of the pets.

5) Mom is a vegetarian, so the maid will have to keep to the same diet, she has to take vegetarian food for the whole 2 years during her emloyment.  

6) She must know how to cook at least her home town’s food, we will give her training on cooking Chinese and Westen food.  She must be willing to learn.

7) We prefer to have a maid with short hair.

8) Best if she can work without an off day.  We are willing to pay her to work on her off days.

10) She has to be able to speak understandable simple English. 

11) No handphone is allowed, but she can call home with permission using phone card.

12) She must be able to work under supevision and respect the senior at home.

13) She has to be honest and have a no stealing history.

With the above clearly spelled out, it does not mean that everything will work out fine.

To have something to start with and knowing what you want will definetely be helpful for you.
