Pros: free breakfast, friendly coworkers, tips
Cons: vacuums broke a lot, not enough inventory
A typical day at work would start with clocking in at 9:30am, picking up our list of rooms at the front desk, grabbing our housekeeping key, and stocking our cart. Then we would open and strip all of our rooms, make beds, dust, clean bathrooms, vaccuum, and spray the rooms with air freshener. We do have some stay over rooms and those we make the beds, dust, and clean the bathroom to the best of our ability due to the guests stuff being in the room. Once we are done with our rooms we restock the carts, sometimes depending on the day we vaccuum the halls, clock out, and take out our trash. I learned that the best way to keep a professional work environment is to save any talk that isn't work related for outside of work. The manager of the hotel made my job a lot less stressful and I enjoyed working for that manager very much. My housekeeping manager was friendly most of the time but other times unprofessional, played favorites, and handled situations in an unprofessional and offensive manner. My coworkers were friendly, helpful and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job would be cleaning rooms that were trashed or had unsanitary things left in them. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting interesting guests and making sure their stay was enjoyable and having them thank us for our hard work.
