Pros: hours, constant busy work
Cons: immediate supervisor.
This Job had a lot of potential to be an enjoyable, simple daily task.
My Typical day included, but was not limited to, Cleaning resident's rooms by dusting, sweeping, mopping, collecting trash and sanitizing. I also would clean and "flip" a room that was no longer occupied. This was considered a "deep clean" insuring that the room was prepared for it's next occupant. I was occasionally in charge of cleaning other rooms, depending on what area of the building my rotation was working on that week.
I learned skills needed to become a decent housekeeper. Skills that give me confidence in pursuing similar jobs at other locations, such as hotels etc.
I enjoyed my co-workers. There was ever only an issue with a new person on my team, but management saw to that and it was handled. The other co-workers were fairly reliable at doing their jobs as well, and didn't try to make any trouble or things harder for any other employees.
The hardest part of the job, was my immediate supervisor. For some unknown reason, he had a vendetta against myself and one other employee. He would harass us, badger us, and insult everything that we did. He had me trained twice because he insisted that I was not cleaning anything properly, and my trainer had it noted that she did not see a reason why I needed to be "re-trained" as I was cleaning as taught, and cleaning better than some of the employees who had been there longer than myself. There was a brief period of time where I thought the issues had been taken care of, as he became a rather agreeable person to work under, had started giving constructive – more... criticism as well as positive feed back, then suddenly he began harassing and verbally abusing my work again. The most confusing and frustrating part of it, is that he often would complain about rooms "not being cleaned" or "not cleaned properly" after days I had not even worked.
Example - I had a day off, then would come into work the following day, and he would complain that rooms were not cleaned properly the day I was off and that it was because I personally did not clean them right. Though I don't know how this was possible when I hadn't even been there to do any cleaning in the first place.
I have no complaint about the rest of the management, other than the fact they did nothing to correct my immediate supervisor. My Immediate supervisor's 2nd in command was a pleasant person to work for, with constructive criticism, and the management above both of them were also enjoyable people to work for.
The most enjoyable part of the job, was, once I was trained and knew what I was doing, it was easy, constant, and kept me busy. I enjoy having proper work to do the entire time I am at my job and staying busy so that the hours do not feel wasted. The hours I worked 7am to 3pm were also agreeable, for the fact that I still had daylight hours to spend with my children at home after work. – less
