Cheryl T., Southeast Michigan

I have received many compliments today on how clean and shiny the floors in the cafeteria and bathrooms look. Your group did a wonderful job last night.

Kris C., Ann Arbor, Michigan

We are happy with the cleaning you have provided. It’s actually clean!

As long as workmanship stays like it is, you will have a lifetime customer.

Ted H., Livonia, Michigan

Every week or two, I get at least one company calling to offer its cleaning services. We have come to trust Populist and depend on them for uninterrupted service. I have not had the need to look for new a cleaning company since we made the switch to Populist.

Jim S., Ann Arbor, Michigan

Populist is our 1-stop shop for cleaning and maintenance. Anything I need completed relating to our building and grounds, including weird, 1-off requests like a flag pole key, I can send a note and someone gets back with me in a very short timeframe.

If it’s not something Populist can do, they direct me to a contractor that may be able to provide a solution. Pricing is reasonable, and their cleaning staff they have sent us over the years is some of the most friendly, courteous, and conscientious I have ever met.

Val K., Ann Arbor, Michigan

We have a long standing relationship with Populist. We stay with them because we get results when we ask for items to be taken care of and follow-up is provided. Their service is reliable and communication is open when there are follow-up items on both sides.

We appreciate Populist’s consistency in nightly cleaning, ordering our supplies, and on-site visits during business hours as routine checks.

Mary G., Ann Arbor

Populist Cleaning Co has been servicing us since 2000 when we moved into our building. We have maintained a regular pro-active schedule for add-on services. Carpets are on different rotations per traffic areas, hard floors have their own schedule, and all the window cleaning as well. Eighteen years later, most of these surfaces are still original and look good.

Thanks to the Populist team, our staff enjoys a consistently high level of appearance throughout our building. Populist takes care of the whole process from beginning to end removing the headaches for us!

Russ G., Ann Arbor, Michigan

Our practice switched to Populist Cleaning when our previous vendor stopped servicing the area.  They picked us up as a client without much notice and serviced us for over a year. Due to a change in location and sharing space with another facility, we unfortunately were no longer able to continue the service with an outside vendor.

In the year that we utilized Populist, we were very happy with the service, including the quality of the service, competitive price, and quick response time to any issues when identified.  Populist Cleaning is a great company to work with. We would use them again if given the opportunity. I highly recommend them.

Anne G., Ann Arbor, Michigan

We like that Populist is able to offer as many services as they do. This is very attractive for us.

We get regular maintenance on items such as quarterly services on our vinyl floors, regularly scheduled maintenance on high traffic carpet areas and tile and grout throughout our buildings.

Populist was able to place us on a regular schedule.  Otherwise, we might not think to ask for these services until these areas start to look bad. This helps us stay in maintenance mode rather than restorative mode.

The follow-up efforts and dedication from the management team at Populist help us a lot!

Lisa C., Chelsea, Michigan

Good morning, the floor work at both locations especially the stairwells look great. Thank you!

I love working for this great company!

John, Ann Arbor, Michigan
I worked as a cleaner for this company for about a year and they are HANDS DOWN the best company I have ever worked for, and I’ve worked in more prestigious places. They are flexible, professional, consistent, really generous and nice, and they are very serious about providing quality customer service. Other cleaning companies I have worked for struggle to replenish supplies: not this company. They are on top of everything and they make you feel like you’re more than “just a cleaner”. I only left the job because I was working full time somewhere else, but I’d go back in a heartbeat. Keep it up, Populist!
Laura, Ann Arbor, Michigan

Populist is indeed a great employer and place to work because everything is in order as far as work ethics, policies, procedures, supplies, staff, payroll, everything. I love working for Populist and enjoy cleaning my building each and every day.  I never get hassled about anything and can always get prompt responses if there’s a question or problem I have. Populist is fair and one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. I have such peace of mind and passion for doing as good a job as I can possibly do.  And when I fall short, Populist is very good about letting me know. Every inhouse staff is exceptional and I can always rely on them for everything I need in the field.  Thanks, Populist! YOU GUYS ROCK!

Kimura, Ann Arbor, Michigan

Taking on a PT job had to fit some certain criteria for me. Things like location – the sites were super close to home…minutes drive of where I live. Really like the flexible clock in times if I have to attend an after school event or help out with things at home. The job is low stress. I am not put in a position of dealing with angry customers like retail jobs could experience. And, I really like that I can listen to audio-books or podcasts while I work, love this.

I appreciate the wage study that Populist did earlier this year. That level of appreciation to the team was awesome! I have support when I need it. If I need something or have something that needs quick attention I have resources to solve pretty much any problem I encounter.

Greg, Ann Arbor, Michigan

I found Populist on Indeed.com while searching for a second job. I chose to apply to work for Populist because I was impressed with the professionalism of the company. Their expectations are clearly communicated in the pre-hire orientation and reinforced in their on-site training and an on-site booklet with the documented expectations. The flexible start time is a great benefit, and the work is not difficult for me.

Travis, Ann Arbor, Michigan

I chose to work for Populist because I wasn’t happy working in the food industry. I had been cleaning prior with my grandmother along with working with food, and she unfortunately decided to retire and I lost the job, but I enjoyed cleaning more than the food industry. Jumping ahead through the interview process, I like what Populist stands for as a company. I enjoyed how organized things were, that there is room to grow in the company, and knew it was a great fit for me! I love how they are willing to work with me even though I am all the way out in Chelsea.

I have stayed with Populist because everyone is very kind, professional, has a positive attitude, and is hard working. I feel appreciated working for Populist which is very important to me! I enjoy the flexible hours, it has been nice while transitioning into cleaning instead of working with food. Everyone I have talked to with the company has been so kind to me, warm and welcoming. I appreciate that there is room for growth as well within the company. I definitely feel the love and apart of a great team!

Lexi, Chelsea, Michigan

I learned about Populist Cleaning Co through a family member of mine who talked about how I could work outside of a normal work schedule, in environments that would benefit the time that I had available. I enjoy cleaning. I like the over all flexibility I have to work outside of the typical 9-5 job. I also enjoy my manager and the people I trained with. I have become very close to a few of them.

I love the atmosphere at Populist. I like how easy it is to do my job and be able to communicate within a timely manner to people inside Populist when I need something. Whenever I have needed time off, whether due to emergency or a scheduled time off, Populist has always been very understanding and has worked with me. I have also enjoyed being able to know I can work after hours of a typical job and at a time that’s flexible and convieient for me!

Ashley, Ann Arbor, Michigan

I was telling a coworker I needed some extra money, and she was working part time for Populist. I applied got interviewed and was really happy to find out that the company was willing to work with my day schedule at the time. I stay because of the people I work with and how the company treats me with respect.

Lori, Ypsilanti, Michigan

I was referred to Populist by a current employee who says they’re like family. I chose to work for Populist because they started out as a mom and pop business and know what it’s like to work their way up from the bottom, their core values, and their in depth hiring process. Populist has a great management team; someone is always available to reach out to. They truly care about their employees and this is why I have stayed with the company.

Marley, Redford, Michigan

We were referred to Populist Cleaning Co by a friend who really likes working here. The people at Populist are great. They show that they value our hard work and make us feel like family and not just their workers. The pay is great, too!
