Serving the Table! Most upscale dinners will include 5 courses, encompassing an appetizer, soup, salad, entree, and dessert. Many formal settings practice the open hand service method, which means that a server’s arms are never to be crossed in front of a guest, and food is always served from the guest’s left side. Important Tips to Remember: Ladies are always served first. Never eat, drink, or chew gum in front of guests. Always exhibit proper posture – Do not slouch, cross your arms, or leave your hands in your pockets while on service. Press uniforms to eliminate wrinkles, creases, and [ Read the rest…]

 
If Only Employers Would Be Clear About Their Expectations For The Job, What a Wonderful World It Would Be!
 
image003

I’ve found that the majority of my clients have found/learned ways of making tons of money, but along with this good fortune comes the “Frankenstein”: The 15,000+ square foot house or apartment, the 2nd and 3rd (& sometimes many more) properties, boats, planes, and a fleet of cars. But these are still family units, with the same basic needs of all families, compounded now with complications of all the toys mentioned above. It’s a “monster” resulting from hard work, success & choice of lifestyle.   Now eight or more bathrooms need cleaning, four or more beds need be stripped and [ Read the rest…]

 
Short Term / Temporary Staff – Summer is Right Around the Corner!!!!!
 
Job Responsibilities

For many Employer’s of Household/Domestic Staff, this is the time of year when additional workers are needed.   Though not needing a permanent employee, the same quality & skill-set is essential. References, background and personality component must still be of the level of a “long term” candidate being considered.  The best way to be assured of having expectations met…… is to be up front, in the beginning, about the “temporary nature” of the job. We have seen many family’s indicate they are hiring for a permanent position.  A new member of the “team” comes on board.  In all work environments, [ Read the rest…]

How to Be an Excellent Nanny – Part 2: Homework Help
 
nanny-homework

We are receiving a lot of job orders from clients looking for Nannies who can also help their children with their homework. If you are a Nanny and have experience helping kids with their homework and studying, you should know that every kid is different and you must adapt to their personalities and how they absorb information. Knowing and understanding the kids in your care is a sure way to help them absorb what they’ve learned in school.   A lot of information that a child learns each day in school is based on memorization. Maybe it’s studying for a [ Read the rest…]

 
Watch Your Step!

We recently received an email from a client about how her Housekeeper accidentally used furniture polish on her wood floors instead of floor cleaner. The floors looked shiny and new, but the household quickly found themselves slipping and sliding all over the place. What looked like a beautiful new floor was really an invisible ice skating rink in disguise! While the family appreciated the effort their housekeeper put into her work and the results, they did not appreciate this mistake that could’ve been dangerous.   Here are ways this situation could’ve been prevented: If you are a Housekeeper and are [ Read the rest…]

Picture this. It’s a beautiful breezy autumn day. You just picked up the kids from school and have taken them to the park for an hour or two before dinner. You sit on a bench and watch them play. One runs to the swings with her friends and the other starts playing basketball.   What if these areas in the park are in completely separate places? It’s important that you keep your eye on all of the children, of course. However, you can even go a step further and do more than just supervising them at the playground.   Get [ Read the rest…]
