Don't know who you are but I have worked for Abbey for 4 years and have not had a problem with her or the company. I know that if you treat her right she will treat you right. So before you go making statements like this you should get your facts straight.

who ever you are better not be calling me a liar because you don't even have the guts to post your name.and besides you don't even know who i am because i don't even go by dee at work and no one knows me by dee so you need to know who and what you are talking about before you start slandering someone.

My fiance worked for Abbey,s for about 2 months. Because of family issues my fiance had to quit, but by doing so Abbey had chosen to keep her last check and the prior 2 weeek check that she held from the start. This women i nothing but a heartless scam artist who preys on both employee's and customer's. As for you Dee your probably part of the scam, with all the bad reviews I have read on this company I do not see anyone staying here too long unless they are just like the owner. I wouldn't doubt if you were the housekeeper a couple accused of stealing money from them. Avoid this company by all cost.

I should have listened to the reviews posted about this job before I started working, but I was just so desperate for work that I didn't listened to past (and true) experience. I did not have a problem with getting a paycheck (although after fees were deducted, I got paid a lot less than I expected. Plus, if a client wanted to add extra money to their bill as a tip, I would never see that tip). My problem was that I was constantly sent to homes that were extremely far away. The closest home that I got sent to clean was 25 minutes away and the farthest was an HOUR away. I know that Abbey's has clients that are within 10 minutes of my house (I ran into a client at the bank by my house by coincidence), but I still got sent far away. Don't bother asking if you can get clients that are closer to your home (with the price of gas being close to $4 a gallon). You will only get told that If you really want to work, you should be willing to drive whatever distance. On top of that, Housekeepers are REQUIRED to call in to the office 3 times a day to ask for work!!! I have NEVER heard of a job that requires the workers to call in 3 times a day to see if there is work. I was basically putting my life on hold and planning everything around whether I would be working that day or not. I know that it is hard to find a job now, but don't give up. Rather than waste your time at Abbey's Housekeeping, were you will be working for basically gas money, keep on applying at other jobs that run themselves more like a professional business.

Abbey never paid me. Told me someone "broke in" and stole all the paychecks. And the way she treats her employees and clients is ridiculous!

That is the most ridiculous excuse I have ever heard. I can't believe they actually told you that. They must think that you are stupid enough to believe that someone broke into an office with computers, petty cash, etc. and all they stole were payroll checks. I can't believe that I actually worked there. I only lasted two months, but from what I read on other ex-employees reviews, I actually lasted longer than most. I know that they post ads on Craigslist at least once a month. Probably because with their bad business practices, they can't keep employees. Speaking of bad business practices, who ever heard of a job where the employees are required to call the office 3 times a day to ask for work. The problem is that Abbey's Housekeeping only wants to hire girls as "independent contractors" so they don't have to pay payroll taxes, or other expenses associated with having employees, but they still want to withhold the first paycheck and do other things that employers do with regular employees. You can't have it both ways!

If all of what is said is true why aren't you going to the government to help to get your money, calling the IRS about not getting your 1099 and suing for the money yousay she owes you? Huh? Beotching here won't get you anything.

I am an actual client of this service-- Abbey's housekeeping. I was moving out of the house I rented. She quoted me an amount for two people to clean a three bedroom, two bathroom house. It was very clear. She said $80 for four hours. On the day of cleaning, they called and changed the schedule to morning instead of afternoon so I had to scramble around and change my schedule that day so I can be there while they cleaned. Lo and behold, only one person showed up. Oh apparently, the owner , Abbey herself, gave me the "wrong" quote. Eighty bucks was only one person. Two people would cost me $120. Okay, I said fine. I had already moved out. The house was empty. I just wanted the house cleaned so I can move on.

The office person on the phone said that I will like the cleaning lady, she is very good. When this cleaning lady arrived, she proceeded to tell me it was he first time to work for Abbey's. This bait and switch was becoming very clear to me. What follows is a disaster. She did not know how to clean. I had to keep telling her how to remove and what to use on mildew in the shower/bathroom. She left crayon marks on the wall (very easy to clean with "eraser"). She said she vacuumed but I had to vacuum again after she left because I saw and felt a lot of dust on my feet each time I walked. She left one bathroom sink untouched. I had to do that myself, too. There was dirt on the wood floor that simple mopping could not do--it had to be scrubbed lightly with a wet paper towel. She did not clean the stove top. Left it greasy and untouched. I had to follow this housekeeper which means I wasted my money and should have gone with a more expensive company because I had to follow her work to make sure it was done right. Serves me right for looking for cheap labor. This incident has taught me a big lesson. If you are a client, stay away from this cleaning service. If you are a prospective employee, I would stay away based on the reviews I have read here.

This company is a scam! I was a house keeper untill the office manager left, then became the office manager. I kept getting phone calls fron housekeepers complaining they werent getting paid their last check. This made me leary of the company. She also wanted me to work monday through friday 8-5 eith no breaks n no lunch. Along with saturdays 9-1. While in the office she was drama allday long. whenvshe spoke, the tone of voice was always rude and loud. I decided to quit before she was able to rip me off to bad. On that day I went into the office to gather the things on my desk she was rude and nasty yelling at me. Called the cops complaining I was stealing! Follped me to my vehicle wouldnt move so I could leave. While on the phone earlier that day she cursed at me because I w as quiting. In order to get your lost money you have to file a civil law suit. She is rude and nasty to clients also. EVERY CLIENTS house I went to they complained about her attitude, she sends random housekeepers, always hires so she could push older house keepers out to rip them off.

I worked for two weeks for Abbey caught the flu a very bad case. Decided not to go back and work half days cleaning one house making $32 of which it cost me $10 of that in gas. This was in march 2013 and it's the end of may and I have received nothing but excuses and still not been paid! Abbey is a liar!
