Growth Trends for Related Jobs

If you watch television, listen to the radio or even read the newspaper, chances are, you've encountered an advertisement for Molly Maid at one time or another. A national franchise with over two decades of experience, the company is well-established and very successful, generating approximately 10 million dollars in revenue each year. But how much do Molly Maid employees get paid?


Founded by David McKinnon in 1979, Molly Maid began as a small housecleaning company in Canada. After five years of growth, Mr. McKinnon began opening up Molly Maid franchises across the United States. Since that time, the company has rapidly grown and can now be found in many international locations.


Molly Maid is known for its "pink glove treatment," a feature that revolves around each customer's customized needs. During the initial consultation with a representative from Molly Maid, each customer will be asked to describe his or her specific cleaning requirements.


There are many career opportunities at Molly Maid and the approximate salary is based largely upon the individual's job title. An office manager, for example, will make more than a housekeeper. Although the exact salary amount ranges, the average office manager makes between $46,000 and $50,000 per year. A housekeeper, on the other hand, can expect at least 9 to 12 dollars per hour and, depending upon experience and location, can make up to 18 dollars per hour.


As with any other career, the salary of a Molly Maid employee is also determined by his or her location. Larger cities such as New York and Los Angeles tend to pay more than smaller, rural areas. When researching the estimated salary for any occupation, it is always a good idea to search by location, as well as employer and job title.


In comparison to many other cleaning company franchises, Molly Maid offers very competitive wages. In addition, the company pays its employees on a weekly basis, requires little to no evening hours and provides a company car during working hours. These benefits should also be taken into consideration in addition to the salary.
