Pros: fun place to work.

The Hawthorn Suites has been a consistant money maker for my time here as Chief Engineer. It is a 20 year old property with some developing problems related to age, but the upkeep has been good with money put back into it.

The mangement has been very responsive and quick to rectify any issues over the time I have been here.

The Hawthorn Suites cleaning experience
Housekeeper/Laundry Aide/ Kitchen Attendant (Current Employee), Franklin, MAJune 25, 2012
Pros: the best part of my job is getting to meet a wide variety of people from all over the country.
Cons: sometimes it is so busy you don't have time to think
My typical day at work consists of going in getting my paperwork, knocking on guests doors to see if they want their rooms cleaned for the day. To clean their rooms first I go in and collect all trash and strip all dirty linens out. After stripping all rooms of dirty linen and trash, I then go to my rooms that have checked out for the day. Check out – more... rooms are always cleaned first to ensure that any guests checking in for the day will have their room at the time of check in. First I go in and spray down bathroom with chemical and clean the bathroom. I then go and make the bed. Next, I do all the dusting (all the furniture inside drawers, picture frames, door frames). Last thing I do is wash kitchen floor and vaccuum the room and deorderize. Then on to the next room. After all rooms are complete, I go to see if anybody else needs help finishing their sections and if they are all set, I empty all my trash and recycling and then fill my cart for the next day. – less
