Employee of the Month – Miranda Murphy
Miranda Murphy, one of our wonderful Team Leaders, is the Employee of the Month for SET Cleaning Services this month. Miranda is an extremely hard worker and never complains, even when she has to work later than expected. Miranda started as a team member almost 2 years ago and quickly got promoted to Team Lead. Miranda is not only great at leading her team but also does a great job at helping train the newer employees. Miranda is a pleasure to work with because she can make any situation fun.
Her first team mate, Amber, has been her best friend since almost day one. Miranda likes all the employees here at SET Cleaning but she and Amber have a special friendship unlike any others. Amber is the type to never sugar coat anything, just says it the way she sees it and that’s what Miranda likes about her. Presently, Miranda’s team mate is Brittany. Miranda considers Brittany so much fun to work with, someone who does excellent cleaning and is the best at vacuuming floors. Yes, those are all qualities you look for in a good teammate.
Miranda took the job at SET Cleaning almost two years ago because she says she love to clean houses. She also loves the connection she gets with all of her customers and they all really love her as well. She is consistently getting 5.0’s (out of 5) from all of her customers. What Miranda likes most about working at SET Cleaning is having the weekends and holidays off to spend with Cayden. This type of company culture helps our teammates to have a great work-life balance.
Since Miranda got promoted to Team Lead, she no longer works with Amber and they do miss working with each other. They do hang out a lot on weekends with Amber’s two kids and Miranda’s son, Cayden, who is turning 2 years old next month. Miranda spends all of her free time with Cayden. You can find them either at the park or anywhere there is water. Cayden is definitely a water baby!
When I asked Miranda to tell me a comical experience from when she was cleaning, she proceeded to tell me about a cleaning her and Britt did in Moseley. While vacuuming, Miranda accidentally got a bottle top stuck inside her vacuum hose which jammed the vacuum really bad. And typical Miranda, she started laughing about it. The customer, who noticed Miranda laughing, couldn’t help but volunteer to help Miranda get the vacuum unclogged. Miranda was grateful for the customers help. After the customer unclogged the vacuum, Miranda continued vacuuming.
While going through a doorway with the vacuum cleaner, her hip caught the door handle and Miranda ripped a long hole on the side of her pants exposing her leg and her tattoos. She went over to Britt and showed her the rip. Britt asked her what happened and started laughing. Miranda did not want the customer to see the rip so she pulled her shirt down as far as she could and hurried out of the house. When Miranda went back to the office, an ex employee, April, happened to be visiting the office. Miranda told April about her day and April proceeded to show her a rip she also received that day. Apparently that was rip your pants day at work.
Something most people don’t know about Miranda is that her nick name is Randa Panda. I think after this article, the employees may start calling her that. Sorry Miranda. In the next 5 years Miranda sees herself finishing school, getting more settled and buying a house for herself and Cayden. We are just so lucky to have Miranda here at SET Cleaning. She deserves the title of Employee of the Month.
