Pros: friendly coworkers, helpful supervisors, constantly changing environment, challenging
Cons: sometimes a little unorganized, slight lack of communication
I get to work at 6 AM, Monday through Friday. The first thing I do is sign out my keys and radio, and check my mailbox to see if I have any supply orders from building supervisors. After that, I drive a truck around campus and pick up garbage from designated locations. Next, I go to my assigned buildings, empty trash cans, clean the bathrooms, and clean – more... the offices and other rooms. Once I'm finished with my buildings, I go to the warehouse and complete my orders, and spend the rest of the day check trash around campus.
I learned some new cleaning techniques, how to use a few machines, and I also gained some material management experience so far. Management has really helped teach me everything I need to do to perform this job successfully. My coworkers are very friendly and have also helped me adapt and learn since I've started working here.
The hardest part of my job is also the most enjoyable part of my job. With the constant changes that occur, I am expected to continuously adapt and learn quickly. This makes the job challenging, but it is also very rewarding. Leaving work each day, knowing that I have done something to make a difference, is what makes this job great. – less
