It can take up to 6+ months to simply get an interview, so not recommended if wanting to be a Boston University custodian, or just any job, very soon. The job requires you to move quickly, precisely, and constantly, and care for the buildings you are assigned, daily. If you have issues with lots of walking, bending, and reaching, also not recommended for you. I do prefer to be on my own, so it was the perfect job for me. There were times when we did projects (setting up events, stripping floors, cleaning dorms, classes, and offices during holidays or when students/employees are on prolonged vacations, etc.) with other employees, though.
All of us were provided with two short breaks, and one lunch break.
You learn to be able to manage time, clean rooms efficiently, and safety tips. The only hard part of the job was probably when we were understaffed on stormy winter days.
Sometimes provided free food, lots of benefits
Can lead to physical problems if not done correctly.
