Are you looking for a good housemaid? If your answer is yes, you must consider approaching a reputed agency that provides skilled and well experienced housekeepers within your budget. They have a process of selection in which they allow you to choose and interact with the candidate in a personal interview.

Before the interview starts, here are certain things that you should consider in the beginning.

  • Introduce yourself and tell the number of members in your family and their ages.

  • Talk about the job responsibility and the type of work you want to get done by the housemaid. Be it cleaning the floors, washing walls and kitchen countertops or doing laundry, you must be particular about what you want.

  • At last, be positive and make the housekeeping applicant comfortable.

Now the idea of an interview is to know a person better with specific questions. So ask those questions that can help you learn about the candidate and the types of maid services done in the past. This will help you make your decision of selection easily. Here are a few general topics that will cover all your housecleaning queries.
