Pay for performance

At Detail Cleaning Services, we offer a Pay for Performance system that rewards our employees based on the number of hours they work and the level they achieve. Pay for Performance is a compensation used to reward employees based on the number of cleaning homes they successfully service. This system is designed to motivate and incentivize employees to work efficiently, complete cleanings in an efficient manner, and maintain high-quality cleaning services.  Here's how it works:


Pay Levels:

Level 1: 40% - 29.9 Allowed hours of work or less

Level 2: 43% - 30 to 35.9 Allowed hours

Level 3: 46% - 36 Allowed hours of work or more


How Pay for Performance Hours are Determined:

We calculate Pay for Performance hours based on the assigned allowed hours for each customer throughout the week. Let's break it down with an example:


Work Schedule for the Week Example:

  • Monday: 7 Allowed hours of work
  • Tuesday: 6.5 Allowed hours of work
  • Wednesday: 6.5 Allowed hours of work
  • Thursday: 7 Allowed hours of work
  • Friday: 6.5 Allowed hours of work

Total Allowed hours for the week: 33.5

Based on this total, you would be placed at Level 2 (43%).

Calculating Your Pay:

During the pay week, we calculate your pay based on the level you achieved and the total payment made by your cleaned clients. For example:


If clients paid a total of $1500, your pay at Level 2 (43%) would be $645.00.

If clients paid a total of $1700, your pay at Level 2 (43%) would be $731.00.


Additional Information:

If you finish the work in less time than allocated, you will still be paid for the hours we initially assigned to you.

Level 2 is typically achieved by cleaning 2 houses a day for 5 days a week.

To reach Level 3 (46%), you need to clean 3 houses a day for 3 to 4 times a week.

Your payment includes gasoline and fares, as well as non-productive time such as travel time between houses.

It does not include customer tips which will be given along with your check.

The per diem for fuel and fares is already included in your payment, and a week's worth of funds is left in the account. As stated in our Employee Handbook, it is not mandatory to use tollways to drive to clean homes.


Monthly bonuses or competitions are not part of the performance pay and are subject to change or removal at any time.

Working Together at a House:

  • If you and a co-worker arrive and leave at the same time, the cost will be divided equally.
  • If you arrive and leave at different times, your payment will be based on the hours spent at the house, with the team spending more time receiving a higher payment.
  • Please note that it is essential to adhere to these guidelines, and any discrepancies or failure to follow the rules may result in termination. We value our employees' hard work and dedication and aim to maintain a fair and rewarding Pay for Performance system for everyone.

We encourage you to make the most of these benefits and get familiar with them. 



After completing six months of employment with us, you will be eligible for vacation time.To encourage our technicians to strive for excellence, we offer a unique vacation pay system that rewards high earners with a higher vacation pay. This means that the amount of vacation pay you receive will be based on your average piecework pay over the last twelve weeks from your vacation week, so if you have been working hard to achieve level 3 pay, you can expect to see a higher vacation pay as a result. We believe in rewarding our employees for their hard work and dedication, and this is just one of the many ways we do so.


Healthcare Coverage:

We understand that healthcare is an important aspect of our employees' lives and we offer comprehensive healthcare coverage as an optional benefit. We encourage you to schedule a meeting with your direct supervisor to discuss the details of this benefit and learn how it can best suit your needs. You have the option to enroll in a coverage just for yourself or for your entire family. We hope that you take full advantage of this benefit and prioritize your health and well-being.

401K Retirement Plan:

At Detail Cleaning Services, we believe in supporting our employees' long-term financial security and encourage them to consider their time with us as a career. That's why we offer a generous 401K plan, which we hope you'll take advantage of.


How does it work?

Enrollment for our 401K plan opens every year on January 1st and again on July 1st. To be eligible for enrollment, you must be at least 21 years old, have completed 1,000 hours of employment, and have been with the company for 12 consecutive months.


As for the employee and employer contributions, they are matched as follows:


Employee = Employer

1% = 1%

2% = 2%

3% = 3%

4% = 3.5%

5% = 4%

6% = 4% (capped)

Here is an example of how it works:


Assuming your weekly check is $750, here are the percentages of employee and employer contributions, and the corresponding matches from Detail Cleaning Service (DCS):

  • 1% employee contribution = $7.50 (DCS matches $7.50)
  • 2% employee contribution = $15.00 (DCS matches $15.00)
  • 3% employee contribution = $22.50 (DCS matches $22.50)
  • 4% employee contribution = $30.00 (DCS matches $26.25 up to a cap of 3.5%, or $26.25)
  • 5% employee contribution = $37.50 (DCS matches $30.00)
  • 6% employee contribution = $45.00 (DCS matches $30.00 up to a cap of 4%)


Please note that these are just examples based on a weekly check of $750, and your own contributions and matches will vary based on your actual earnings and the percentage you choose to contribute
