Maid Wanted (Housekeeper)

Recommended Posts

Greetings, I am Hikaru Miyamoto aka Harry or just "H" I am a valet or "gentleman's gentleman" if you prefer. I have been charged with the task of finding a suitable maid (Housekeeper position) for my Lord and Lady.

We are seeking a (housekeeper) maid for a large penthouse. Duties include daily cleaning (the penthouse has a dirt system and really must be cleaned) the penthouse must be scrubbed, swept, hovered (vacuum), windows cleaned and tables wiped down. Laundry and cooking will also be added to the duties (when suitable decent looking systems are researched further and available). 

Further duties may include helping the gentleman choose wardrobe when the lady of the manor is not around (which is quite often) serving dinner, cocktails, gatherings and parties. In addition you may be asked to help find furnishings and systems for the household which may involve shopping with the Lord or Lady of the manor. You will also be the head of the female household staff and required to interview other potential house maids, which will reduce your daily chores.

In your role you will be interacted with as any other servant would be interacted with which means no drama on anyone's part and no special attention (this is IC of course). 

The role play is freeform role-playing which in this case means speaking directly to a topic or situation rather than emoting or writing paragraphs about everything. Our environment is interactive, there is no need to state "the carpet is dirty" we can all see it is. Our timeline is present day.

Requirements

Our respective time zones are between 14 and 17 hours ahead of Second Life (PDT) we expect you will be able to be on during the same times we are, this is something we can discuss and work out as every situation will be different.

You must be available at least 2 hours a day Sunday - Saturday (Mondays off) unless arrangements are made for time off (we understand RL is more important and stuff comes up)and you must be available for planned functions for which you will be given ample notice. 

 

We run a tight and serious household, that is not to say that we do not have a sense of humour as you will see by the artwork but we are strict on dress code and IC in public chat because we are trying to create a realistic environment. 

Your avatar must be human preferably full mesh, human means human not a cartoon or anime character simply because that is not realistic for our purpose. 

We speak in Her Majesty's full and proper English which means we never say "cause" when we mean "because". You will refer to our employers as Lord and Lady or Sir and Mam never call them by their names. You are expected to follow aristocracy protocol, if you do not know this I will teach you.

You must be in full uniform when working in the main areas of the penthouse, this includes all uniform items such as shoes, dress, apron, headpiece, stockings, etc. no exceptions. You may dress as you please in your off time. The uniform will be a French Maid's uniform as the penthouse is primarily Louis XIV themed. 

An interview is required with me "H", if you pass my standard you may proceed to an interview with the Lord and Lady of the manor. 

There will be a one week trial period, if everything is in order and all parties are happy a more permanent situation may be worked out. There is no compensation if you are not hired simply to weed out people seeking quick money and free items.

Compensation

Should you gain a permanent position with us compensation will be as follows:

L$300 per week

Uniform provided (or reimbursed in full) 

Holidays and Monday's off,  you must provide us with a list of your holidays as we are not in Western countries and may not take notice of them, that is assuming you are from a Western country.

Holiday bonuses of up to $L2,500 (I will provide you with a bonus schedule) 

You will be provided with a teleport HUD to manage security and go between the different estates. 

A fully furnished private room in the penthouse complete with bed, sofa, chairs, your choice of art work for provided frames and estate rights for the group. A small prim allowance will also be included.

You are welcome to have friends over to your private space but they are not to enter the main penthouse unless approved by me. Child avatars are prohibited as some of the furnishings may be adult in nature.

You will have access to the pool house and garage, there is a large inground pool here and access to Route 8 on the Second Life Highway. You may arrange with me to have pool parties and invite guests, you may also rez cars and motorcycles here to drive on the highway. The house on this property is off limits, it is my home and station. 

You will have access to the boat docks on the Muir Second Life waterways which lead to oceans, you may rez boats here to sail. 

Any and all requests, complaints or concerns go through me, I am the head of staff do not bother the Lord or Lady with petty things and never directly ask them for anything. 

If this is agreeable with you, if you have questions, want more information or to apply for the position, please send a note card to hikarumiyamoto resident.

No they payed extra for a dirt system but now they do not want to clean it themselves, LOL... 

However when I come to SL to work with my RL time I expect RL payments. My rates are 12500L$ an hour. Legal minimum wage in my country would be around 2000L$, not per week though, that is per hour...

Your wage (300/(17*250)) is about 7c US per hour... 

Yeah, how about: NOPE!

But let's stay in RP:

@HikaruMiyamoto Your offer dishonoured your lord. You know what this means, right?

PS: this belongs in Wanted, not RP, RP subfora are not for personal ads.

@Fionalein this is a role play not a job or I would have posted it in "Inworld Employment" and offered a lot more money if it was a business but I'm assuming you knew that or my English is a lot worse than I thought.  It's nice they offer a little money which is to buy uniforms and and things for the rp or offset costs because we know not everyone can afford it. 

 

@Love Zhaoying That was not me (us).

It is in the Role Play forum, so why would you automatically think it was a joke?  Role Play in SL encompasses all sorts of things.

Anyone else just super curious to see these guys in action? I mean, the RP sounds wicked intense. Too much dedication for me to even consider, LOL, but I'd love to observe this someday and just watch how it all plays out.

I would find this sort of RP very rewarding, actually, and was just recently thinking of searching for such a position. Unsure if position still exists, though as I am from the west and my schedule/availability varies, am not entirely sure I would fit the bill, though I would certainly do my best. I would also enjoy being a nanny if a household had children, or a caretaker to any animals in the home. ♥

Role play, as in you hope I actually want to do all that crap, I mean if I am going to spend my time in roleplay it needs to be fun, like maybe being drug around by the hair by a caveman, but cleaning carpets? I might as well just stay in RL. Maybe if you were going to roleplay actually paying me a decent wage, but for 300 a week? I can take that French Maid Costume to a stripper pole and make way more than that, and have more fun as well.

Even though im not interested or qualified in any way, i like that job offer and the way it is described in such a detail.
But, what is bothering me a lot is not only the really low amount of payment of 300 Lindens a week -  no, its also the fact how its written in the announce.
When reading that job announce, my minds builds an image of a complete region, with a small forest, a pretty garden setup and a adequately huge mansion in between, where the Lord and the Lady are residing.
In a setup like this, i would at least expect a line like "You will be paid 300 Lindens for the first week. Salary rises will be discussed and negotiated afterwards according to the progress of the skills you will make over time."

I get L$400 a week from LL in weekly stipend. That should be more like L$300 a day (for minimum time of work, like three hours or something). Role-Play or not, if you're going to offer to pay actual L$ then at least make it worthwhile. :)

Whew a lot of the comes here seem a bit skewed. Surely the pay is pretty bad if you're looking at it from a perspective of spending your time trying to earn lindens. However, from the way I was reading it, it seems like you're invited to join into this roleplay scenario (Which seems pretty intense by the way, kudos) just like any other of them. The pay is just a bonus / buying various RP things. 

I don't believe this is Work, rather, it's just an RP ad. Because let's be real here, if you're roleplaying simply for the money, you're not likely to enjoy it that much. Ladies of the night aside. Alas I'm not very vested into roleplaying, neat read though.

Lets face it. Not even 2 months and 13 answers later the noble lord and the gallant lady dont find themselfes compelled to answer any of our questions. 
Even though i believe they just found an engaged roleplayer inworld, i like the idea they didnt do so at all, and therefore they are spending their 300 Lindens weekly on a multiscene skybox with a castle or mansion setup, of course. :)

So I had actually taken them up on this offer but the RP sim they were on fell apart shortly afterwards with no fault to the OP. It was a cool setup for someone who like Master/servant style rp. I personally didn't care about the 300/week as the rp was my interest. If they got back together on a diff sim I would join them again. 

 

So don't knock something because its different to you. Its absolutely someones cup of tea.
