Housekeeping on a corporate level.
Pros: fast-paced work, consistent hours.
Cons: no-time for lunch, physically demanding, lack of vacation.
The Cleaning Authority is a nationwide corporation that specializes in general housekeeping services.
A typical day consisted of arriving at 7am, gathering cleaning equipment, checking out house keys, start route, perform cleaning duties like dusting, vacuuming, sanitation, mopping etc. Every house had a set area to detail which required extra attention. – more... We would leave a sheet explaining what we cleaned in the house and any info the homeowner needed to know.
I learned how to clean all area of the house quickly and efficiently, as well as how to deal with demanding customers.
Management was very involved with co-workers and was quick on communication. We were given minimal time off for holidays and the work days varied in hrs but were consistent.
I requested time off for a vacation to visit my family and I was penalized for the request.
Co-workers were nice and were there to the job done. Hard-workers overall.
The hardest element was working with demanding customers. Some requests and complaints crossed over into irrational thoughts.
The most enjoyable part of the job was talking with my cleaning partner on a daily basis. – less
