Quick Tips:

Married maids – We are sure most of wives will agree with us, while on the other hand husbands losses their smile. Agency Pekerjaan Together Sdn Bhd recommend married maids and preferably 30 years old and above, since they are more likely to have experience in taking care of their own children and understands parenthood. This should be the priority of home employers when looking for domestic helpers primarily to take care of their young ones. Based on our experience, younger maids are more likely to get themselves into unwanted relationships within the vicinity of their employment, that could decrease their efficiency while discharge their duties.

Communications – In the current age and owing to basic human rights, we don’t really have the power to outright disallow the usage of mobile phones. As a maid employer and human being, we too must understand and have sympathy that they too have loved ones whom they left behind and come to Malaysia just to earn money.
