Cleaning Crew (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – January 27, 2016
Working as part of the cleaning crew at Calvin College was a good experience because I was able to make a lot of new friends and create new connections. I also learned how to clean efficiently under a certain amount of time. It was nice that our jobs would change on a weekly basis so that we would not get too bored and start slacking at a particular job. The management was good and I had a good boss that cared to ask about our day everyday and that had a good relationship with each employee. He also knew which jobs each individual excelled at and which job each employee preferred. The hardest part of working on cleaning crew was that many of the jobs required only one person and it could get lonely.
