Latest Review: Although I never had the pleasure of A La Carte Clean cleaning my home, I did work with them for eight months. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Julie, Rick, and their team of passionately meticulous cleaners. I came to work for Julie through a prayer and a need. When I met Julie, I was working at a gas station parttime and as an Uber at night. I was struggling to maintain a consistent position to get custody of my children and to build a consistent life for them. Julie walked in one day and thought to give me her card so I could come work for her, but didn't then and left. Days later, as God would have it, I ended up having Julie and Rick as Uber clients. Throughout our ride together we came to the topic of my looking for a stable job. Just then, Julie offered me a job. I had told her of how I had given up on cleaning and how Molly Maid rejected me because they thought I was untrainable. Her reply was astonishing, " I don't give up on people. If you are willing to work I will teach you." And just like that, I started working with Julie. Throughout my time there, people thought I would quit or I wouldn't make the cut. The days were long and it seemed as though maybe cleaning wasn't meant for me. But day in and day out I went and Julie believed in me.To me, Julie was more than employer, she was a friend and an inspiration. She loves all her employees and all of her clients. I'd seen her happy, I'd seen her stressed, I'd seen her hold it all together when her house burned down. But each and every day she was there for us. She saw me gain custody of my kids, she saw me rejoice when I could afford to put them in a decent daycare. I looked up to her. She knew I never wanted to lead anyone but somehow she always found a way to push me out of my comfort zone and make my skills grow. I knew in the last days I worked there, God was putting it on my heart to start my own company. For weeks I pushed the thought out of my head. I thought to myself, "I don't want to lead anyone, I see what Julie goes through to do it." But I was deeply saddened when it came time for me to leave. I had learned something from everyone there. I was a floater and had the chance to work with each person. I had heard all their stories. We were more than just a company, we were a family. But, as God would have it, it was time for me to grow again. Julie had taught me the definition of quality cleaning, quality customer service, and quality team work. With those skills, it was time for me to start something of my own. To this day, I still send potential employees to work with her that I know will grow and learn from her. And, if i know of a client where I cannot feasibly meet all of their needs, I send them to Julie because I know they are in good hands. Take care and God bless.
