Employee Testimonials

Employee of the Month

Congratulations to our June Employee of the Month!  Susan was nominated by her Branch manager Bob.   Bob told the story of a recent night that the power went out where Susan cleans.  We were having bad storms which caused the electricity to go out.  That didn’t stop Susan from getting the job done!  She went home and brought back a battery powered vacuum and head light, then finished her cleaning for the evening.  That’s what we call going above and beyond for the customer!!!  Thanks Susan for your determination to always get the job done no matter what it takes!

“Great company to work for.  Leadership is very fair and easy to talk to.  They listen to concerns and needs so staff can perform their job to the best of their ability.”

Lilah Barlow

“I have worked with ESS Clean for over 15 years. I have really enjoyed working for them. I love being independent meaning not having someone looking over my shoulder as I work. This job has been flexible for me. If I needed to change my days, or a job, they have always allowed that to happen. The managers have all been great. They listen, and are very helpful. This job offers great benefits and will even help your kids go to school. ESS has been a joy to work for. I intend to stay as long as I can.”

Cherry Willis

“Everything is going really well actually.  Everything is exactly as expected and I’m pretty happy about that”

Glenna Bullard

“I appreciate my position with ESS clean. The location is convenient for me and it’s a good building to be working in. My day time job is stressful at times. Coming in to clean the bank is stress relieving for me. My doctor has even noted a decrease in my blood pressure since taking this position. I would not change a thing about my current job or conditions.”

David Martin

“Thanks for allowing me to work for such a great company”

Mike Powe

Michael McCray

I have only been with ESS Clean a few months but from the very start of my hiring process to training it has been easy.  My favorite part of working with ESS Clean is that the offices that I clean are close to my home and that my supervisor is just a phone call or text away.

I have been with ESS Clean for about 5 months.  Onboarding, orientation, and on-the-job training went very smoothly.  The Area Manager, Ophilia, from the Danville area has been fantastic.  My favorite part of working for ESS Clean has been working alone.  It is so nice to be able to come to work and just get the job done.

“ESS is a top notch company”.  Bloomington division was so enjoyable to work for.  Kevin, April, Brian and Rich all treated me so well.  I loved the independence and laid back atmosphere.  It’s a company that I can recommend to friends and family without hesitation.

Thank you so very much for letting me be a part of your company.

Delores Stewart

“It has been one of my favorite work environments.  Laid back in demeanor, yet still very mission oriented.  The goal was clear, and I was welcomed to do things in new ways if I saw that it would help.  A clear and simple structured environment without feeling rigid.  I feel that this removed a lot of stress that can come with any position.”

James Pastore

I have been in the work force for over 35 years both full and part time and i can honestly say that ESS has treated me like family and takes care of their employees whether it be full or part time. I cant express my gratitude enough for all that you have done since being employed. I like doing what i do and will continue to do so even after my Hawaii trip next month.
Again i thank you for this opportunity.
