How important are these factors in hiring good employees for our Carpet Cleaning Company? We listed them in what we feel is the order of importance.
Let’s look at them in reverse order.
Many employers look for experience. In the past we have found that experience is the least important. Our Company prides itself on the methods we promote in our service business. If a potential employee has worked for another Carpet Cleaner, then they may possess habits and techniques that run opposite of what we promote.
Intelligence is sometimes over emphasized. We do not need a rocket scientist to clean carpet. What we do need is someone with the ability to learn and comprehend and follow instructions. A bright person will quickly gain experience.
Last but not least is character. We find that this is the most important element of all. There are several reasons. But the main one is that this person is going to be at your customers’ premises. Many times there will be no one there other than them. Everyone we hire is bonded; this in itself is a background check. Also, since we carry full insurance coverage, our insurance carrier will run an employee’s drivers license through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
The people we need most are those with the character to promote and practice “The Bane-Clene® Way”, the intelligence to learn and therefore gain experience.
