Your Search for New Staff
Hiring Domestic Staff
How We Work
Absolutely Fabulous Domestics, a licensed employment
agency, can help you with any and all of your domestic staffing
needs. We assist you in compiling your "wish list" in terms of
days, hours, chores, duties, specific skill sets, and special requests.
Then we start with this criteria to narrow down viable candidates.
Each of our candidates must:
I require candidates to sign releases allowing us to:
- be legal to work in the country,
- have command of the English language,
- have verifiable references, and
- have had a personal interview with me, shaken my hand and looked
me in the eye.
Beyond that, you as a potential employer are encouraged to do whatever
additional research you need to do in order to feel completely
comfortable with hiring an employee. I don't think we can be too
careful. My basic rule of thumb is that if I wouldn't send this
person to work for my mother, I won't send them to you.
- check their references,
- obtain their driving record,
- review their credit history, and
- conduct a criminal background search.
Wouldn't it be lovely if I had the perfect candidate at the ready,
and many times we do. Or, we may have to conduct a search specifically
for your position, which can take some time. Timing is sometimes
