Good if you are desperate for work
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Fort Mackay, AB – 22 March 2017
A housekeepers typical day consists of participation in the morning safety meetings, then you go to your assigned dorm and collect all towels. Throw them in the laundry and start cleaning each room. Make beds (change linen as necessary), clean showers, sinks, dust, vacuum,etc. If there are check-outs that morning (and there always are) then you strip and clean the entire room. Throughout the morning, you go back and forth to the laundry room between rooms to wash/dry towels. Depending on your camp, you might work your 10 hours in one shift - or do a split shift to accommodate the night shift workers.
Its a no-brainer job and you meet some quality people. Having the right supervisor can definitely make or break this job for you because having the wrong one can make life miserable.
Upper management definitely needs to get their act together. But I think at this point that is a non-issue. They used to have about 8 camps - and from my understanding, now they are down to one.
The people you meet, the friends you make, free lodging and wifi
Staff are expendable, long rotation (21/7), lack of job security
