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


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.

    Hi Glen

    I was curious do you guys place nannies in NJ.   I am searching for a childcare position in Bergen or Hudson County.  Personally, I wouldn’t mind NYC just afraid of getting really lost.  :  )  Pretty embarrassing considering I live in Fort Lee, so close to NY.

    Is their a real wage difference between NY and NJ??

    Hahaha, yes.

    I have been helped by Yulia. She is a very kind woman. Thank you so much Yulia and the green house.

  • Jesse says:

    Nash…Steve? You know the deal.

    This is by far my favorite agency to work for. As a private chef, it is never fun to work with an Agency that charges a fee. 
    Thankfully, this is not the case at Greenhouse. The staff is warm, and quick on their feet.
    I highly recommend.

    Greenhouse = best staffing agency in NYC hands down.

    We come across so many, “seemingly” amazing Candidates. They’re talented, bright & skilled.  They list an excellent work history, with all contact info for their references.  We call the references, have a 10 to 15 minute conversation and come away thinking the Candidate IS as good as they seem.  We’ll find a nice job for them, a well paying job that seems to be a nice “fit” for both Employer & Employee.  A week goes by….the jury is still out.  The second week..boom, the sh_t hits the fan.  The new Employee proves to be not what we thought them to be.  Skill level is weak, personality is in-appropriate for a household, reliability is know where to be found.  What happened? How could we have been so wrong?  The Employer also, who made the decision to bring them on board?
    In many cases, the mistake goes back to the reference. Did we (you) really know who you were speaking with on the phone?  Who was it, truly, who gave the great reference?  I’ve learned, even the reference should somehow be checked too!
    It does make our job a bit harder, but we have found effective ways of knowing who, what, where we’re calling when checking a reference.  We also found, being thorough and taking the extra time, is well worth it!

    well said, sir.

    Hey Glenn,
    How do you take your coffee?

  • glenn says:

    FOR ALL “CAREER” HOUSEHOLD/DOMESTIC STAFF: Please be sure to consider weather you will be “happy” on the job & “like” the family your considering to commit to. Though very important, money isn’t everything. When in a work environment where you’re close to your boss, all the time… must be sure it’s an environment that’s tolerable and you can deal with: “emotionally,” “psychologically” & “…physically.” This is a very unique “employment relationship.” Every “Household” is different, every “Employer” is different. None are truly bad, but some situations are more “stressful” than others. All people are different and some can handle “situations” that others cannot. Look at the “whole picture” when thinking about taking a job. Weigh all the pros & cons. Again, money must not be your only “motivator.” I’m not suggesting taking a position which will put you in worse financial straights, only that giving up an extra $50.00 per week, to take a job where you will be happy & enjoy your days, is the smart way to go.
