What I need to know about my maid?


 Fast FoodWhat I need to know about my maid?

For us, we can have burgers, pizzas, salads, sandwiches or even KFC chicken as lunch or dinner.  But the foreign maids must eat rice as their lunch or dinner.  It can be replaced by instant noodles, but not in  with fast foods. I discovered this when I brought my maid out for dinner one night and when it was dinner time, all the restaurant were packed or had a long waiting list, so we decided to have a change. Perhaps we can have Pizza for dinner. And to my surprise, throughout the whole dinner, my maid looked very unhappy. We thought that perhaps she was tired. Later, we found out that she did not think that Pizza was a proper meal. She was still expecting to have her dinner with rice…

On the first day of work for the maid, during the orientation, you must make it clear to you maid who she has to directly report to.  All maids assume it is you because your name appears in their work permit pass.  In my case, my mom will be who she directly reports to.  

Mom is in charge of doing the detailed training and she will also check on how she does the work, if it is done the correct way, if it is done in the most time-saving way, if it is done in the most economical way…. Etc.  If this is not correctly spell out, the maid will be upset when mom tries to correct her and thinks that mom is deliberately making her life difficult. This can lead to a conflict and damage the relationship between them.  

This most often happens when you have an experienced maid.  The experienced maid usually assume that what they are doing is acceptable in family A and that they can apply the same method on family B, C or D, but in actual fact, this is a wrong concept, therefore it is good that you highlight this to your maid to let her know she has to learn to make adjustments and apply the correct working style and methods accordingly.
