Reviews: You've Gotta Be Kidding Me
Custodian Worker (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IAMarch 23, 2018
I read all the rosy reviews and couldn't believe it. Makes it sound like employees 'whistle while they work' right out of a Disney movie.

If you work here, be prepared to experience a horrible clock in / clock out system. It's always busy and I've had to dial non stop for 15 minutes to clock in.

Managment decisions are odd and often way off. What they DO focus on is using the white glove test to show you where you missed. And you will be written up for some cleaning infractions that are highly skeptical. Would be nice if they picked up a broom while they were inspecting your work.

When it's time to get your check, be sure to scour it for errors. There will be some. Good luck getting them fixed. The employee is never right. They will even threaten to not pay you or worse.

So many things are just 50 times harder than they should be. If you go into the office to discuss something, be prepared for a long wait as the management chit chats with each other.

Don't believe all the planted positive comments here. When it comes down to it, you will be cleaning toilets, bathrooms, vacuuming and emptying stinky trash cans. One was so bad that I had to drag to a dumpster; I threw up.

Some of the people at the companies where you will be working will be wonderful. Others make it clear that you are 'the help' and expect no eye contact.

And this is hard work. You will sweat and over-do it and the body aches will remind you. You will run to the washing machine AND shower when your shift is over. This week's work disaster was finding a bucket and removing
  more... 'items' that had been left in a toilet. (Someone must not have been having a good day.)

Always watch your step...wet floors, snowy/icy sidewalks, and wet steps. I've ended up bruised, cut and scraped while on the job.

Know you know.

We hope we hear from you to get some specifics so we can address. You can reach us as 1-800-249-6161 - just ask for HR.

Expected a lot out of their Supervisors

The pay did not reflect the work expected, Working all night and some nights not getting home until 4- 5 am. The owner does not care about their employees.

Willing to train and help you if you have difficulties
Custodian (Former Employee) –  Davenport, IAJune 28, 2019
They don't have you take on an account unless your feel like your ready. The supervisor's are always just a phone call away. A very understanding company. Some accounts don't have enough time allotment to complete for someone that has disabilities or just is not use to this type of work and physical requirements.
