You can always tell when she is lying. She gets that look in her eyes. So obvious. I've stood in front of her KNOWING what a customer said to me, word for word, and this awful woman has flat out lied to me and said that the custome complained. That's why I was able to take customers away from Sparkle, they caught her lying too much.

Total bullshit. She only reimburses the fuel you use if the house your going to to clean is 30 miles one way. She has you running all over with your own vehicle from Syracuse to utica to everywhere and for what she pays you you use to put right back in your gas tank. Your looking at at least $125 a week on gas out of your pocket. The more miles you drive the more chances that something on your car is gonna wear or breakdown so figure in car repair too. If I'm gonna drive my own vehicle that much than she's gonna pay me at least a grand a week otherwise you aren't making enough profit. Yea it's true she lies and everything is so vague with her. Never explains things and yes its true she's totally disorganized. Her handwriting is awful and hard to read. If she had any common sense she would pay her workers per mile to help with out of pocket fuel cost. Even if it's .25 cents a mile it would help. If she did this than she would keep alot of her employees but I guess she likes people quitting all the time and the headache.

She is a horrible person. This is not just about a mean boss. This woman is vile. The things she does to people are sick. She lies to employees about other employees. She lies to employees about customers, lies to customers about employees. It never stops. Everything out of her mouth is flat out lying. She doesn't have customers anywhere near her because no one wants to deal with her. Yeah I remember those trips all day, driving 90 minutes to get to house, and then another 45 minutes to get to another house, and back and forth and back and forth. No one can do that and live on the $15.00 you might have left after buying gas. Remember last year when gas got up to $3.95? She was screaming at these kids, these 18 and 19 year olds who barely had a 10 year old junker to car pool with. They were trying to be honest with her and tell her that they couldn't afford any more gas and she SCREAMED at them that they were lazy, lying, worthless, whatever came out of her mouth.

Right and I have to drive 30 miles one way just to get help with fuel cost. Is this even legal for a business owner to do? Most of the houses traveled too are under 30 miles one way so your stuck with having to pay out of pocket everyday to pay for gas. If she can't afford to pay her workers fuel cost for using there own vehicles than she shouldn't be hiring anyone and she should go drive to these houses and clean them herself. After getting paid each week than paying bills there isn't shit left over to even put gas in my car so I can go to work and drive to these houses. Forget car repairs , better cross your fingers nothing breaks on your car or your screwed.

Because everyone in this area stopped hiring her, she charges more than anyone local and is a bitch to deal with. She also treats employees like sh*t there is NO excuse for the way she screams at people and belittles them and LIES about them. I warn young kids don't use her for your first job, you will regret it and she will trash you and lie about you to customers. Awful woman. I know what you mean about the gas money. She seems to think some super smart person with a college education and a brand new car with a $400 car payment and $180 car insurance is going to work for her so they can get to work on time every day and never have car trouble and get great gas mileage. She is whack that one. And some of her "loyal" workers are just as bad, sneaky, liars, using drugs, stabbing new people in the back, totally insanity at that house in Wampsville.

She is not breaking laws with the gas money thing, but the only thing people like you and me can do is warn naive workers who don't know much, do NOT work for this woman, she will destroy your life and it doesn't matter that practically no one likes her or believes her, future employers will listen to what she says about you and she will accuse you of stealing. she did that all the time! TOTALLY innocent people, get better jobs, move on, she shrieks her head off at them. If she fires people for no reason (other than her own screw ups) she blames them for costing her customers and she LIES LIES LIES LIES. The problem is she gets away with all of this because most people look down on house cleaners and think that we're all losers. She takes full advantage of that impression.

You only get paid when your inside the houses cleaning. The sometimes 45 minute drive and wear and tear on your car you don't get paid for. She's not gonna last much longer because she can't keep workers for obvious reasons. Only matter of time before her business goes under. Has you going all the way out in Syracuse in the hood sometimes for shit pay. She will have you working 12 hour days and you only get paid for 8 hours of it or less

Oh and she won't go out of business. She's been hurting people for years. Stays open and keeps getting new customers when she loses customers and employees, she uses some kind of sleazy referral service to get more customers, then she has to panic and hire ANYONE who walks in her house. She will eventually just retire and never have to pay a price for what she's done to people

In all the time i worked for her not once did she ever get out from behind her desk and go to a house with a brand new worker and train that person, and no, I was not trained and hordes of others were not trained, she just assumes a new employee will walk into someone house, first day on the job, and do everything perfect. Some think why would a cleaner need training? They do.

Years. She will never go out of business. She operates just barely legally. The issue with her is that she treats people so badly and can't figure out that this is why she has non stop problem after problem. Her rental house is a mess. she screams at her tenants. her life is one long day after day of constant screaming, constant problems. All of that is caused by her own behavior but she will never change and of course everybody else is wrong and she just doesn't process her actions are the cause of all the chaos in her life
