seminar for household helpers?

05 February 2011

I've been very unlucky with the maids and yaya's that I've hired in the past. Some doesn't want to follow MY rules in the house. I don't even ask them to wear an all-white uniform or any other kind of uniform other maids use.

Every single maid that I've hired doesn't know anything about housekeeping at all! They wait for me to tell, most of the time I have to teach, them what to do. They give me nothing but headaches so I decided not to hire a maid anymore.

How I wish there's a school for maids. Most agencies give a few days of house keeping seminar to would-be maids. But I don't think a few days is enough. A month or two of daily training should make them the best maid in the country.

We have been lucky with maids and yayas for the past 10 years. One maid has been with us for more than 7 years already. They're usually Visayans mostly from Leyte. And they're very hardworking (if not completely honest) and hindi mareklamo sa trabaho. I think it would be better if we train our maids instead of the agencies they came from kasi we have our own preferences on how we do things. Also, we treat them as professionals. Para avoid familiarity with each other. My sister spoils her yayas kaya ayun hindi tumatagal kasi nagiging mahirap utusan... unlike me and my parents, we keep our distance talaga sa maid kaya tumatagal kasi they understand their line of work and what they're supposed to do. I just make sure they don't go hungry and have snacks around especially kape (masaya na sila maka-kape lang) ... teehee! parang blog post instead of comment na to sa haba... sensya na :)

I've has a really bad experience with agencies. Most of them do not train or even do a background check. A few do but you have to wait a long time for the right fit. Recommendations are what work best for me.

Good luck!

I think Maricel Laxa is holding seminars for maids. In my son's school, they're giving free seminars for yayas, too, and I'm really thankful for that.
