We are not looking for employees who want a job. We are looking for employees who want THIS job. A great company can only be built by great people who are committed to their own success and to the success of the company.

Do you guarantee my hours?
Our staff do not have to worry about not getting a full schedule. Our Green Cleaners are compensated for same-day client cancellations. Technically, the hours are not "guaranteed", but we are a thriving business and typically have more work than we need!

What if I have car troubles during my employment?
Our Green Cleaners still work their normal schedules even if they have car problems. How do they do this? GCS reimburses $25 per day of their rental car costs for up to 3 business days while their car is in the shop, so long as they work their normal schedule and do not call off.

Am I an employee? Does GCS pay for my cleaning supplies?
Yes and Yes. You are an over-the-table employee working for us and we provide all of the eco-safe cleaning products needed to do your job. Why is it important to be an over-the-table employee? Because GCS pays a portion of your taxes, Social Security, etc.

How much can I work and when and where will I work?
Our cleaners receive 15-38 hours per-week. Our hours are within 8am-5:30pm Monday-Friday and as late as 7pm on Saturdays. We are closed on Sundays but can sometimes provide you with commercial services to do on Sundays if this is a day that you would choose to also want to work. And we operate on a set-schedule, so that you can know well in advance when you are working and so that you can have a stable, predictable work schedule.

We do our best to schedule you near your home and/or near our Fremont office. Most of our clients are in Seattle proper. Our main areas of service are the Central District, Ballard, North Seattle (ie Greenwood, Ravenna, Lake City). We also have clients in West Seattle, Georgetown, Burien, Columbia City, and on the Eastside - including Bellevue and Renton. We also service Edmonds, Shoreline, Lake Forest Park and North of Seattle
