Forbes magazine reports that employers seek the following when hiring: “36% look for multitasking skills; 31% look for initiative; 21% look for creative thinking.” The same holds true for Scottiejo McNulty and her thriving business Elite Cleaning of Washington.
Using local resources like WorkSource Thurston County and Craigslist, McNulty offers employment with flexible hours to job seekers throughout our region. Her employees must simply be 18 years old, have a valid driver’s license, an insured car, be non-smokers, and willing to undergo a background check. Prior cleaning experience is appreciated but not required.
Available work hours fall between 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. But unlike many jobs, Elite Cleaning’s hours are flexible enough for part-time workers like moms hoping to make extra money while the kids are in school. Overall, McNulty seeks team-oriented individuals that are trustworthy, reliable, have an excellent work ethic, and good Internet skills.
With the mission that “We don’t leave until it’s done and we come back if it’s not right” Scottiejo shows a true passion for her clients. This also extends to caring for her employees; original WorkSource applicant Debbie is still part of the team more than three years later.
Author Bruce Barton explained that “The five steps in teaching an employee new skills are preparation, explanation, showing, observation and supervision.” Elite Cleaning educates and supports all employees to insure success for staff and their clients. New hires are comprehensively trained and initially shadow more experienced workers. Their handbook details residential and commercial cleaning checklists customized to each individual customer.
Even with such flexible requirements, employees can earn raises and incentives from positive customer feedback. By checking in with clients to see if their needs have changed or going above and beyond for a task, Elite Cleaning staff can boost their pay and still be home in time for dinner.
