Comments, Ideas & Stories | Greenhouse Agcy Ltd - The Ultimate Leader in Personal and Domestic/Household Service Staffing Needs

T

he relationship between “employer” & “employee” is most unique in the Private Sector – Personal Service Industry. This is the rarest of situations, where an employee’s responsibilities require they be a part of their boss’s everyday private lives. This “connection” in most cases inevitably leads to the employee’s personal life being opened up to their employer. It’s virtually impossible for the traditional “boss/worker” relationship we see in the corporate/business world to be remotely similar in a residential/family setting.

Of course there is always a line drawn and boundaries set, as in all work environments. Never the less, the environment itself tends to create this “one of a kind” rapport.

Because of this exceptional link between “employer” & “employee,” we ask for Comments, Thoughts, Ideas, Suggestions, Experiences & Stories. Please take a moment to submit an item of interest, related to Household/Domestic Staff or previous work stories. The funnier…the better. The more informative…the more helpful for all.

    You can see the unprofessionalism as soon as you walk into the office. Not only do you hear and see them treat some  applicants with an attitude, but also what they do is they take the copies of all your documents, social security card etc. and then they don’t even respond to your emails. Who knows what they use all of your work history details and the copies of your documents. 
     
     
     
     

    • Is this comment from Ildiko? 
      Regardless of who “L” is, these comments are false and mis-leading.  Our gathering of documents are the only possible way to do our job.
      What is our job?  The job of all at Greenhouse is to help people (job-seekers) find work.  How can this be accomplished without asking for documents like a resume, references, SS# for a background check etc.?
      Greenhouse Agency does not force anyone to give us any data or info.  As a matter of fact;  Each Candidate that fills out an application when visiting our office signs (willingly) a statement which indicates clearly they give Greenhouse permission to check their references, perform a background check and fully understands Greenhouse is an “Employer Fee Paid Agency” with no fees or costs whatsoever to the Job-Seeker.
      Please be clear “L” as to what you are insinuating?  Anyone can write with innuendo, but be fair and spell it out…. unless you know all that you are writing is a fabrication and this be the reason you pose statements as questions!
      This is the very first time I have ever responded to any comments in this manner.  Even when a client wrote; “beware!” 
      I take immediate and personal offense and will address anything written which is a lie. The same goes for any person who dare lie, when such action is meant to malign the good name and reputation of Greenhouse Agency!
      “L”; “You have no right to even insinuate Chris has an attitude with any Candidate, even if your statement is subjective! Chris is one of the nicest, most easygoing, polite, caring, unflappable young men I have ever come across. It has to be Chris you refer to as he greets and is the first of Greenhouse’s staff to deal with all who walk through the door.  Shame on you for besmirching such genuinely good person like Chris!”
      Further, I hereby challenge you to prove or provide credible evidence Greenhouse DOES NOT use THE INFO gathered from any Candidate for the purpose of checking background, work history and assess skills for job referral. 
      In closing, I can only assume you are either a job-seeker who has been out of work for a long time (for which you have my sincere heartfelt sympathy as I do know how tough it is to be without work), seeking to put blame on someone, or you must have worked at Greenhouse and simply couldn’t make it as a recruiter.
      I thank the thousands of Employers and Job-seekers who think highly of my company for reading this.

        Firstly I do think your comments are insulting and not necessary.. Secondly I absolutely disagree with all the things you’ve said. Having a job or not having one has nothing to do with the comment that’s made above. When you’re asked to show all of your documents and somebody takes copies of them and then tells you they’ll be in touch or you should check back in with them, they should have a decency to answer back peoples’ inquiries regarding the position they’ve applied for. 
        Since everybody’s entitled to their own opinion, this is what I think.

    The Dog Came Out Of Nowhere…. and the Candidate Ran From The Interview!!!

    All was going as good as could be.  Julie was being interviewed by Mr. & Mrs. French.  The three were chatting for about 45 minutes.  Mom & Dad even brought their cute 4 year old to meet and talk to Julie.  All were very relaxed, with Julie going over her past experience and answering all questions asked.  Mr. & Mrs. French had already begun to think about a start date.  They liked Julie.  They can tell she knew her job, was sincere and liked the questions she had asked.

    As Julie was responding to their queries regarding her salary history, out of nowhere, “Chai” comes running in from another room.  Chai is darting towards Julie and screeches to halt at her feet for a split second.  Then jumps up into her lap.  Seeing Julie obviously and visibly shaken, almost to the point of hysterics, the little 4 year old grabs his little “shneegle” (Schnauzer & Beagle mix doggie).  The family started laughing a bit, but not inconsiderately at Julie.  The whole thing happened so fast and though Chai was no more than 9 or 10 pounds, Julie was caught of guard and didn’t really like dogs.  So the humor was a result of the incident and by no means were they laughing at Julie.  But Julie got right up and said: “I’m sorry, but I must leave immediately.  I can’t work in this house.”

    Oh well.  I guess even for a nice easy 40 hour week job, taking care of  one 4 year old, while Mom and Dad are at work and being paid $55,000.00 per year can make a difference when the un-expected happens during an interview.  Julie had really wanted that job.  The family seemed leaning to giving her a try.  But what’s meant to be…..is meant to be.

    The Mariah Carey Interview

    Can’t say I know all the details but I do know a job is a job. Which means you follow your boss’s instructions. If avoiding a “motherly nurturing relationship” is the wish of the Mom who’s most probably paying a generous salary?……So be it.

    I’m in the Domestic/Household Staffing Biz for 30+ years. I’ve seen it all.

    From what has become apparent, a Nanny working for Mariah must always be sure to constantly remind her/his charges: “Mommy Loves You and will be home very soon.” “I am not your Mommy I work for your family and my job is to take care of you.” “Your Mommy works very hard and is a great Mommy who loves you!”..

    I believe a professional, smart, talented Nanny can do their job and (AT THE SAME TIME) take steps to avoid the “little ones” they care for, from beginning to reach for them or look at them as their Mommy.

    Again, if this is what the Boss wants…then it’s just like any other work place. As long as your being treated fairly, you be sure you understand your Boss’s wishes and perform to your Boss’s expectations.
