I really liked working at bgsu the co workers were nice and the student were awesome if you did your work and come to work you had no problem.
Custodian (Former Employee) – resident halls – February 22, 2017
A typical day for me at BGSU was going to my area to first pick up trash in the hallways as I walked to my area I then would start with my kitchenette wiping off surfaces and sweeping and mopping the floors then moving to the laundry room the same, then too the elevator area I would dust mop then mop and wipe elev. doors down, then moving to the lounges, I would dust furniture and vacuum if needed after that was done I would go to my stairs and sweep and mop and usually have to scrub the walls as I went, then it was on to the bathrooms I would sweep the floors, put tp in and fill soap dispensers then hose the showers and disinfect daily then mop my way out daily. The last part of the day I would vacuum all my hallways. If I finished early I would work on hallway walls and stock my closets. I learned so much at BG but if I had to choose I would say how to get along with all kinds of people and mainly safety. The hardest part of the job was summers we cleaned dorm rooms and we was expected to clean so many a day, its also crunch time, when all the stripping, waxing and shampooing takes place. The best part of the job was the students, they are so up beat and fun, they really keep you on your toes. I really enjoyed them. Management could have been better, it is such a big institution it was hard to have uniform rules I feel it would be hard for the supervisors because their were so many different buildings so it seemed like every building had their own set of rules, they did the best they could.
working around the students
very hard work in the summer (the quotas)
