Whereas many better-off households have a maid coming in during certain times of the day, few homes here in the USA have permanent live in staff. You can see that from the way, even large, houses are built here, usually without permanent staff quarters and only in the rarest cases with an "upstairs-downstairs" kitchen arrangement. Having looked at, and visited, many up-scale homes across the country, it is always amazing to find, that the staff does not even have their own staff room, where they spend their time between calls, and after they have completed the work of cleaning and bringing order to the house! In other words, few, even very large houses are build to accommodate permanent or even live-in staff.



Nevertheless, an increasing number of people have staff and even economic downturns, have changed little on that. Salaries for household staff in the USA and Canada are, relatively speaking, and compared to other areas in the world like Europe and Asia, very high. This is one reason which attracts household employees from many other parts of the world.

Although, authorities, and job descriptions vary widely, we have put together definitions of commonly found household staff members based on information from various recruiters and the Department of Labor.

They should give you an idea of what kind of jobs are available.

Pay and conditions vary greatly across the country (USA and less so, Canada). Salaries quoted for some of the jobs by recruiters in California and New York almost defy belief and are also at variance with the statistics of the Department of Labor. However, while we are trying to reflect a true picture, or at least as close as one can get it, it has to be on the person looking for a job to verify what kind of salaries are paid, where and for what kind of job description.

Common Household Staff Positions
Estate Manager He/She is the head of an owners multiple households or residential estates. A sort of CEO of the owner’s property or multiple residences. It is a high level position the requires excellent organizational, financial and human resource skills. Apart from managing the other household staff, the incumbent has to be able to deal with suppliers and subcontractors. Few owners will have the time, or the inclination to create and hand over well organized homes. It is therefore the Estate Manager to create smooth running households and to create sensible budgets for that.

Salaries can be anywhere from $40,000 to $150,000. This is often a live-in position at the main residence. Normal is a 40-60 hrs week, but often this is a 24hr day/7 day/week/365 a year job.
The minimum requirement is probably a
  • good business or accounting degree plus some years of experience in either hotel management or the management of a household;
  • Outstanding formal appearance and formal social contact skills;
  • Good personnel management and training skills;
  • Good budgeting and financial control skills
  • If the owner has residences abroad, then foreign experience (having lived and worked abroad!) is essential and
  • solid fluent foreign language skills are required
House Manager or House Keeper The house- or household managers manages a single property. He/she manages all the staff and the budget for that property. If there are multiple properties each house manager will report to the Estate Manager. With a single property owner you usually report directly to the owners.

Salaries can be anywhere from $36,000 to $80,000. This is sometimes a live-in position at the residence. Normal is a 40-60 hrs week, but often this is a 24hr day/7 day/week/365 a year job.
The minimum requirement is probably a
  • good business or accounting degree plus one/two years of experience in either hotel management or as a junior in the management of a household;
  • Outstanding formal appearance and formal social contact skills;
  • Good personnel management and training skills;
  • Good budgeting and financial control skills;
  • computer literate
Butler (Under-butler or Houseman for junior positions in the USA) Butlers can be employed at private households as well as 4 and 5 star hotels, though the latter's functions are slightly different from those of the domestic butler.

In some large households, they are often responsible for efficiently running and supervising the specific needs of a formal or multi-staffed household, thus assuming also the House Manager job.

Additionally, in a good and proper household, while the relationship to the Butler is formal, he will also act as Executive Assistant. with a Butler providing distinctive, “hands-on” involvement. A Butler typically oversees the household staff usually of one residence and anticipates the needs of the employer. The Butler usually lives in.

Butler’s salaries range from $40,000 to $130,000 (live out) plus benefits.

Salary is based on experience and the duties and hours listed in the job description.
In some places the butler is only in charge of the dining room, wine cellar (a most important part!), and the pantry (valuable silver, table linen and China) . Many are in charge of the entire "parlour floor" (all the reception and day rooms), while the housekeeper cares for the bedrooms, the rest of the entire house and its appearance.

Today, many butlers in the USA, complete a university degree before they enter a special training school for butlers. In the UK, this is less often the case with some of the best butlers still working their way up in large houses.

Butlers are always male. They should have a high level of general education. In addition, to a good social education and a complete command of social etiquette, they should also have
  • good business and accounting, budgeting and financial control sense gained through education and experience
  • Outstanding formal appearance and formal social contact skills;
  • Good personnel management and training skills;
  • Today they have to be computer literate

For contrast and as an international comparison, a Butler at Balliol College, a highly prestigious job at one of the 37 Colleges of Oxford University, in the UK, has recently been advertised for Pounds 19,000-24,000 (US$ 30,000 - 40,000 - 2010). This was not a live-in position!

A live-in position with an aristocratic family in the South of France (2010) was advertised for the equivalent of US$ 50,000 a year.

Personal and Executive Assistants Personal Assistants are responsible for working in the employer's home in the management of household, personal and professional needs.

Personal Assistant’s salaries range from $50,000 - $85,000 plus benefits. The hourly pay range is from $18-$25 per hour. Salaries are based on experience and the number of hours and duties listed in the job description.

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANTS
Executive Assistants provide key administrative support for an executive, managing their daily schedule and handling multiple activities.

Executive Assistant’s salaries range from $50,000 - $95,000 plus benefits. The hourly pay range is from $18-$35 per hour. Salaries are based on experience and the number of hours and duties listed in the job description.
Most jobs will require a bachelors degree and good fault free English language skills. If you work internationally, a state recognized commercial apprenticeship is probably a lot more use than a degree.

Besides the obvious administrative skills, you have to be socially skilled, know how to eat properly, know your wine, your geography, and your food. Being a vegetarian or some other "oddity" will not help in this job.

You have to be computer literate and considerable bookkeeping skills are frequently required. Some of the duties may include:
  • Handling personal bills of your employer
  • Making travel arrangements, and sometimes traveling with the employer.
  • Serving as office assistant, handling correspondence, creating inventories, organizing the personal office and, if you work for a celebrity, handling media inquiries.
  • Planning special events and parties
  • Managing construction projects or home improvements.
  • Scheduling of staff and maintenance personnel.
  • Coordinating personal schedules and daily activities
  • Running business and personal errands
  • Maintaining social and philanthropic activities.

Here in the USA, personal and executive assistants are rarely required to speak, or be able to write in another language than English. Internationally you should at the very least be able to offer three of the following: English, French, German/Russian/Spanish/ Arabic.

Cook/Chef Having a cook or personal chef is a valuable asset if you are a busy family. They should manage the kitchen for the owners family, but also for the staff, if a staff dining room is available. Some cooks have been trained in good large restaurants, others come from large houses.

The best chefs available come from Europe, having been trained in solid apprenticeships, rather than culinary schools. Though, if you can find them, there are good chefs in the USA.

Sometimes a good maid is also able to provide decent meals using fresh ingredients.

Chef Salaries range from $40,000 - $100,000 plus benefits. The hourly pay range is from $30-$50 per hour. That is considerably more then a Chef can earn in a top level restaurant.
The level of sophistication required in the kitchen and the wine cellar of a large house is a reflection of the education level and sophistication of its owner.

Some people live in large houses having an abundance of staff, yet they still prefer fast food rather than good and nutritious home cooking.

Maid The maid is probably the one domestic employee people have most often contact with. It is the most common household employee and probably one of the most important one. The maid will handle most of your household valuables from your silver to your China or your clothes if she also does the laundry in your house.

A maid will earn anywhere between $ 18,000 and $30,000 a year (40 hour/5 day week).
There is no formal education for being a maid. However, some training in a large house might be valuable. Knowing how to care for your clothes, how to clean your silver and not to put your most valuable China in the dishwasher might be things one has to learn. Many of the best and most reliable maids in the USA these days come from Central America or Mexico.

To do things right, the employer will have to use a salary/tax service to account properly for the payments to the maid.
Gardner/ Groundkeepers If you have significant land around your house/estate (3+ acres), you probably need a Gardner or groundskeeper. He/she will also look after the pool and the tennis court. Unless you have French or English style manicured gardens, there is probably not enough work for a full time job with less than five acres and a greenhouse.

A Gardner/groundkeeper will earn anywhere between $ 18,000 and $40,000 a year (40 hour/5 day week). His salary will depend on experience and on his knowledge about plants and gardens.
If you do not want your Gardner simply going to "Lowe's" or "Home Depot" and buy the plants they sell, you would want a trained Gardner. Nothing against them or their products, they generally sell value for money. But if you go to the non inconsiderable expense of employing a Gardner, acquiring al;l the right tools and maybe having a proper greenhouse, you want your garden to look different and good all year round! You might consider having the garden designed by a landscape specialist and then worked on by your Gardner. But again, be careful about the training of these specialists!
Couples Couples are two individuals working as a team to provide domestic and personal services as needed for the care of your home and family. The skills they offer can be: Household Manager and Chef, Housekeeper and Handyman / Cook / Groundskeeper, Butler and Chef, or Chef and Housekeeper.

Couples' salary range from $60,000 to as high as $150,000, plus benefits for the pair. Living arrangements are usually on site but in a separate house or, less common, off-site.

The problem with couples is always what happens if one of them does not work out to your satisfaction. Having experienced that repeatedly in France as well as here in the USA, we can assure you, it is a rather messy entanglement.

If, on the other hand you find a qualified, honest and hardworking couple treasure them! They are not easy to find!
Other Positions Security Staff ($18,000-48,000) For nationwide jobs look at Domestic Security, and for International Jobs look at International Security
Laundress ($18,000-$24,000 p.a.)
Chauffeur (often combined with security - $36,000-60,000 depending on duties)
Nanny (if properly trained - not on a "quickie" course - $ 36,000-$60,000) depending on age and duties
Salaries like job requirements and training for these jobs vary widely and exact data for salaries is difficult to come by. There is also a marked difference between New York, California, the Seattle Area, some parts of Texas and the rest of the USA

Job descriptions, especially for domestic employees are an important issue. There are probably more unhappy working relationships between employers and domestic employees, because of vague definitions and assignments of duties, than for any other reason. If you are an employer, spend some time on clearly defining, what you expect from a domestic employee. If necessary, use the help of your recruiter. Because, he will be unhappy as well, if he has to repeatedly replace an employee for free!
