Green Clean by G is looking for cheerful, honest people who love to clean and want to grow in an emerging start-up company with a vision, integrity and a quality reputation.

Our mission is to invest in people through providing superior service, strong education and sustainable wages. Superior service is always the goal when we clean homes and make cleaning products. We want our clients to feel like royalty when they arrive home to freshly cleaned spaces and to know their families are safe when using our cleaning products.

The household manager will be trained on an ongoing basis to clean like a pro using our proprietary, non-toxic cleaners and other non-toxic cleaning supplies. We aim to enhance our customers' experience by having the friendliest, most detailed-oriented people in town working with us.

Sustainable wages for our employees is a must; we want to reward our employees for their job well done. Pay starts at $15 per hour and may increase based on performance.

Trust and integrity are important parts of our business and, as such, we seek to pair employees with clients rather than rotate employees through. We service the greater Portland metropolitan area and, upon completion of training, you will be given your own service area and customers. We enjoy a family-friendly work schedule (typically Monday through Friday, daytime hours with other options available based on employee schedule).
