'Haushaltshilfen 24' - Any experiences?

Hello to all!

We are looking for a cleaner and found this cleaner agency on the net. From the site they seem as good as the other ones but substantially cheaper (28 CHF/hr compared to 36-37 CHF/hr) than other agencies so I was wondering if anyone had tried them and have an opinion...
To get the 28 CHF/hr rate you have to buy an abbo per year but it is only 95 CHF so much cheaper anyway...

Mainly, trying to understand if you get what you pay for or if they are simply less greedy

Thanks for any opionion!

According to this forum the company starts to take customers this month even though they've been advertising for a few months now. Agency plus low wage sector equals poor salary all too often. The agency's lowest price is 23 Fr./h and I can imagine how much of that makes it to the pay packet of the employee...

Well, the 23 CHF/hr is for pet sitting & babysitting which is normally paid less that cleaning.

28 CHF/hr cleaning is pretty much what I would pay if I did all the paperwork for cleaning lady.

Issue is I tried to find a clenaing lady through other channels and it did not work out... I am now with another agency which charges 36 CHF/hr and are good but price difference is quite huge.

Guess some of it is reflected in the wages but cannot be only that.

Let's see if anyone has any opinions

Cheers,
C
