Hi, wondering how is the market for hiring Filipino transfer maid now ? If you have recently hired Filipino transfer maid, possible to share: (1) how much you pay her salary ? (2) how many off days (3) how many years of experience in Sin? (4) how much agent fee you paid? Thanks in advance!

fresh and haven't completed 2 years contract
as at Dec 2012, filipino in the agencies asking S$500 with one off each month.

Those sitting in the agencies waiting to be hired, could be only 6 months experience in Sg may demand $500 with 2 off days each month or off-compensation.

Note: handphone is a must for most modern FDWs.

Completed 2 years contract - salary starts from S$550 with one off each month

Agency fee starts from $500.
