I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I applied for CCS. At first, I didn’t want to work for this company because I was going to work for a franchise or another “cleaner”. When I sat down with Travis and Ed, they seemed different. Travis was a former police officer and was pretty upfront. He didn’t want to sell me on anything he just wanted to show me the “difference”. He explained that he grew tired of franchised cleaners, he knew that they treated their employees bad and paid even worst. He explained that his idea of a good cleaning company is an honest local company. Someone you can call anytime with any need without expecting to get someone else to show up unable to communicate with you.
He introduced Ed as his operations manager and gave him a humble introduction. Ed explained that he was unsure about the job that Travis offered him. He explained that he was tired of working for franchised companies and didn’t want to make the same mistake again. He also made clear that Travis’ company was different. Travis actually cared about everyone in the company including his clients. He gushed about how his car broke down and Travis offered him a company car as a replacement. He mentioned how Travis offered to clean a clients house after he found out she had cancer. He shared so many examples of how Travis cared. I was blown away, I was thinking that this was going to be a job interview or a pitch. Amazingly it was a different experience, it felt like a coffee talk. I had a great time talking about the company, cars, and cracking jokes.
So before I left I was offered the job and said yes. I wanted to prove to Travis that I also wanted to do something different. I mention to him that I wanted to help build a better marketing campaign. Also, I wanted to at least tell someone what good he has done and show everyone that the company was different.
About a year later u was diagnosed with cancer and I couldn’t fulfill my obligations and job duties. When I spoke to Travis and submitted my two-weeks notice, he offered a severance package. He also wanted me to return to my when I was ready and healthy. Through my treatment, he offered a helping hand. He gave me rides to treatment and offered to clean my house through the cleaning for cancer program. He helped me all the way through and I couldn’t be more grateful for that.
So as I close, I wanted to thank you for your interest in this blog and the company. I hope to you see why we are different.
