Generally decent, yet long hours
Houseman (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – July 19, 2017
Typically as a houseman you are to strip vacant rooms as well as rooms that check out. I learned how to do these things, as well as take out trash and dump linen in laundry, as well as vacuuming hallways, cleaning vending areas, putting stuff on shelves. The place is fairly managed, and usually you can find answers from supervisors, who are generally friendly. The culture does, however, not appeal to me all that much, since most of the activity is in the laundry room or other places that could use some better air quality. The hardest part aside from those things would have to be being patient with housekeepers when they are finishing up, as we cannot actually leave until they are all done. The most enjoyable part is finding stuff in the rooms that has been left behind, such as non-opened water bottles and such.
Free items sometimes left behind, discounts on restaurant items.
Long hours depending on work day, lack of air conditioning
