Pros: get off fairly early in the day, lots of people to meet, steady work schedule
Cons: short lunches and breaks, can be hectic, lazy coworkers, temp. job
normally work begins at 7 am here, when you clock in, you're designated to your work area and listen for any further instructions as well. you will mainly be cleaning rooms with many coworkers but you clean your own suites most of the time. you get two breaks and a lunch of thirty minutes. you typically leave at 3:30 or 4 depending on the day shift – more... you are given at orientation.
the coworkers are often people your same age group but not always and if you're looking for a social job then you might like it although the pay is minimal. mine happen to all speak another language and i'm the only female this year so its quite irritating and lonely at times.
management is another ordeal. the former residential director left this year so the new present one is unknown but i will tell you this: expect chaos and a lot of sudden change-ups. more often than not, we're rushed to start a project or on an area for cleaning before they decide to send you somewhere else instead. there's one person in charge who just has an awful attitude and she will talk to you like you're dirt but just control yourself and you'll be fine. you rarely see her anyways.
I can't say that i learned much considering I've been experienced for a good while before this position, but i did learn how to do floor work such as laying finish to make the floor tile shine.
the hardest part had to be not being recognized for the actual amount of work you do everyday. You go everyday on time, and work yourself to exhaustion, silently hoping someone might notice you standing out and might give you a chance at a stable job. for me, that's the hardest because you know you are under-paid and unappreciated but you still have to keep going.
I suppose the most enjoyable aspect, if there is one, is all the different kinds of people you can meet. And sometimes goodies are brought in if the crew does a real good job as a whole.
this is a seasonal temp. position so if you're looking for work to hold you by until school as a student or if you just need the extra cash, then its a fairly decent start. – less
