Questions to ask at an office cleaning interview




When youíre hiring an office cleaning company, you will obviously wish to interview some of the candidates that have caught your eye during the application process. This is the best chance that you have of learning about them and their ability to do the job that they have applied for. It is important that you ask the right questions, as this will help you to work out whether they would work well for you or not. You should always ask them plenty about their experience in the past. You should ask who they worked for, how they found the job, and why they left. You should always be suspicious of a company who have worked for a lot of clients for short amounts of time, as this could indicate that there is something wrong in the way that they work. It is also important that you are able to find out how they would work if you were to hire them. Some cleaning companies, for example, prefer to work during the course of the day while there are people in the office, whereas others are happy enough to go at the end when the workers have gone home. You may find that this is an issue for you, depending on which of the two you would prefer. Many companies find it easier if their cleaners are able to do the work when there is nobody else around, as this means that they would not be in the way. A vital question to ask is about the contract that needs to be signed. You donít want to be signing something that youíre going to regret, so talking everything through before it is signed is essential. Donít assume that you have to sign the contract that they provide you with Ė there is always the option of changing certain parts of it if there are things that you donít like or that youíre not too sure on. Perfecting the contract will mean that both you and the office cleaning company are happy with the way that things will move forward, and this means that there is a much better chance of a positive working relationship. Covering all bases is key, because an office cleaning company can help you out a lot when youíre running a business. Finding the right one could certainly help to transform the way that youíre able to work in your own personal workspace.
