Complaint   >> Posted: Jul 13 '16 by Priscilla in District of Columbia, United States

Mary came to my home on July 12, 2016 to interview for a part-time housekeeping position for 12 hours a week. She agreed to work for me for $20/hour. My profile clearly states that I am looking for a part-time housekeeper for an hourly rate between $12.50-$25. The following day, Mary sent me a series of insulting and harassing text messages stating that I was a manipulative person trying to take advantage of her because she expected to earn $1,000 per week for the 12 hours she planned to work each week.

First, I think it is absurd that she expected to be paid $1,000 each week for working only 12 hours a week. She stated that according to your website that was the weekly rate for part-time housekeepers.

Second, I was appalled at the abusive messages that I received from this candidate. Mary insulted my character and continued badgering me in spite of the fact that I repeatedly requested that she stop harassing me.

I strongly suggest that you remove her from your website because I do not think it is fair for other young mothers who are seeking housekeepers to endure such abuse in addition to wasting their time.

Thank you!
