Dress Professionally

Make sure you take the time to pick out a professional outfit that you feel confident in. You don't need to wear a pantsuit, but it is important to look clean and put together! Remember, you want to give the best first impression possible, and dressing professionally is a great way to set yourself up for success.


Know What You Will Bring To The Team

Think of three reasons why the cleaning company should hire you, and make sure they are all relevant to the job, such as being punctual or having excellent attention to detail. Also, make that you share how your strengths relate to the job itself. Make sure you read the job description thoroughly and consider why you want the job and what would make you a great fit. Then, be ready to share your experience in cleaning, even if you haven't worked as a professional house cleaner. For example, perhaps you have done a great deal of cleaning as part of your previous jobs or volunteer work.

Ask Good Questions

The interviewer wants to know that you are interested in the position. Come up with a list of questions, such as what the cleaning schedule is like, what kind of training you will receive, or what duties would be expected of you. This will show that you have put some thought into the role and are able to see yourself succeeding in the position.

Be Yourself!

Most importantly, be genuine and let your personality shine! The interviewer wants to hire someone who will be a good fit for the team, so relax and be yourself. If you have any doubts or concerns, bring them up during the interview. The interviewer will appreciate your candor and may even be able to address any potential issues. Remember, if you’ve been invited to an interview, then the cleaning company saw something in your application that made you stand out, and they want you to be successful!
