Housekeeper Interview Questions

March 26, 2014

Last month, we gave you some steps to interview a housekeeper. Now that you have a few candidates, it is important to take the time to do a thorough interview. 

Here are some questions you can use to gauge what kind of housekeeper each individual is:

  • What do you like most about being a housekeeper?
  • What do you like least about being a housekeeper?
  • What type of cleaning duties do you do?
  • If there any cleaning you do not like to do?
  • How many houses are you currently responsible for cleaning?
  • What size of home have you cleaned in the past? How long do you think it would take you to clean this house?
  • Do you clean independently, or do you have a partner? Will anyone be cleaning with you?
  • Do you have your own cleaning supplies??
  • How long will it take you to travel to my home? Do you have your own car?
  • What are your charges? Do any of your services cost extra?
  • Will you provide me with a receipt for your services?
  • Why are you the best candidate for the job?
  • What days or hours do you have available?
  • Do you feel comfortable doing a trial day?
  • When can you start?
  • Do you have liability insurance for any damage that may occur while you are working?
  • Are you bonded?
  • Would you be willing to sign papers allowing me to perform a background check on you?
  • Since you will be in my home on your own, do you feel comfortable with a criminal record check?
  • Do you have a list of references specifically for cleaning jobs?
  • Are you comfortable around pets?
