👍 Hiring cleaning employees like modern companies do. The Pipehire way.

Our time is limited, running a business is hard work it needs full concentration and attention.

Setting up unattended processes is vital to operate efficiently.

Pipehire has been developing a hiring method to help business owners step up the game.

We welcome you to The Best possible score and A, B, C players method.

Best possible score form

Let’s start in the Funnel which received a full overhaul to make  our hiring process more effective. At the top of the funnel you can see a number which is the “Best Possible Score” for this job opening.

The purpose of the score and the colors are to help you identify the most qualified applicants.

Now you can have a clear apples to apples comparison of all your applicants in one single screen and from any source.

We build this feature so you can save time and identify the A players quickly and move on to the interview process.

Within the new funnel you will also find applicants highlighted in green and with a “recommended badge” these are the most qualified applicants using our recommendation engine technology that we started building during winter.

These candidates will be your best return on investment. We recommend you start with them before someone else hires them.

A, B, C players

Next to the “Best Possible Score Form”, you will see three colored boxes with the letters A, B, and C, those are the three possible categories that the applicants can be classified based on the score obtained in their application. 

This traffic light color can help us to visualize the score obtained by each applicant. 

The green color means the applicant has obtained 80% to 100% of the possible points in the application form.

We refer to them as ‘A-Players’. You should focus on proceeding quickly to interview and ideally hire these applicants before somebody else hires them.

The yellow color means these applicants have obtained between 50% to 79% of the possible points of the job application.

We refer to them as ‘B-Players’. Proceed with caution since these applicants don’t meet all the requirements of the position. If you like someone in particular call and ask more questions to see if they turn to a green color. 

The red color means the applicant has obtained less than 50% of the possible points of the job application.

We refer to them as ‘C-Players’ you should definitely not proceed since they are incomplete applications and/or don’t have the bare minimum requirements of the position. You can archive these applicants if you like.

🥳 Groundbreaking House Cleaning Management Dashboard will be releasing in December 2020

My first 13 yrs of my cleaning business were pretty stressful because I couldn’t retain good employees. I met Debbie Sardone and she help us solved the issues with the Pay by Performance model and much more 😁 Thanks Debbie!

Then another problem popped up? Couldn’t hire people fast enough to keep with the growth of the business, I looked for many hiring solutions for our industry and I couldn’t find anything that will fit our business model.

In 2018 I started developing an internal tool to help us hire faster and better employees. It’s been a success for my own business and it solved the problem! Several months went by and I showed to couple of CBF members and they told me if they could use it for their business and I said why not?

We released Pipehire in 2020 to the public during CBF Dallas during the beginning of pandemic and thank God has been a success! We’re grateful for first people that believed in us Jacquie Shinniman, Jamie Spurrell, Maria Ramirez, Renee Dickinson and Maggie Zwol true early adopters. 🤓

Less Stress, More Life for Cleaning Business Owners.

For 2021 we declared the year of “Less Stress, More Life” in which we focus on building solutions that help you have better quality of life as cleaning business owner. In 2020 we learned the hard way that life is too short. I plan to live my life with less things running in my head, but rather put systems in place to keep that running. My mind is for creativity, dreaming, giving, helping, not for storage, tracking issues or micromanaging staff.

The first steps towards a Less stressful business is here, we call the the Owner’s Dashboard and will have the following features.

Pipehire new Management Dashboard help you see at a glance:

Appointment Calendar: Will allow to see applicants who have confirmed and unconfirmed appointments. This feature will save you time and will give you a real expectation of the your day. Learn more about this.

• Coming up Employee birthdays and anniversaries: You will be able to send SMS messages to a particular employee on their birthday or work anniversary. Learn more.

Expiring documents: You don’t want your employees running with a expired document ever!. This feature will show you who has expiring documents. Watch a video.

• Remind you of unsolved complaints: There’s some cleaning complaints that are very serious and that will need to be reminded of and properly closed (this feature was inspired by this real life case The Flooded house complaint). You can also setup the reminder here and also how often. You can tell the system to skip the weekends so you are not bothered. Learn more about complaints.

New Applicants with Score: When you need employees fast you want to be alerted of. This section will show you newest applicants and their employee score.

Why we build this? We want to help our users become proactive and efficient and spend less time worrying about their cleaning business operations and live with less stress.

When this feature will be released to the public?
December 2020.

Check this video explaining how this new Dashboard will look like:

✅ TaskAway Virtual Assistants now trained to help with Pipehire

If you happen to use TaskAway VA’s (which are awesome) they are now trained to use and manage your Pipehire account. We’ve working with Maria Dorian to make this available to our clients.With a TaskAway VA trained in Pipehire they can help you with the following:

  • Post your job form into Indeed, Facebook or any other jobs website.
  • Help you verify applicants before an in-person or zoom interview.
  • Collect all onboarding docs from your employees and upload them.
  • Setup reminders of expired documents so nothing falls through the cracks.
  • Migrate/upload your employees information from other systems (just provide us a login or excel file and we will do all the hard work)
  • Enter all Complaints/Compliments into Pipehire so each employee gets their score
  • Move all your employees files into Pipehire cloud file so you centralize everything in one place and much more.


Why join forces?

We believe this partnership will allow clients to have a better and more complete back office support making their offices to run more independent of the business owner creating freedom.

I’ve hired many virtual assistants during the last 10 years and Taskaway really has nailed down the market for helping other cleaning business owners without the process of hiring their own VA’s in other countries. This is truly a competitive advantage and I truly admire what she is building with her team.

To get started contact Maria Dorian at Taskaway for more information.
