Job Description for Custodial Supervisor
A custodial supervisor manages one or more maintenance crews working in large facilities, such as schools, hospitals or offices. He or she oversees and participates in maintaining the cleanliness of the grounds; this typically includes inspecting and observing the work of custodians and janitors who report to the supervisor. The supervisor typically reports to either a higher maintenance or building manager on any issues encountered and to receive feedback on the performance of the work.Read More...
Normally, maintenance crews are assigned a list of duties they are expected to perform on a regular basis, typically outside of the building's hours of operation if possible. The custodians and janitors normally empty trash and waste receptacles throughout their assigned area; they may also clean and restock bathrooms; sweep, mop and/or vacuum floors; and dust as well. The custodial supervisor ensures that this work is performed to established standards and corrects and advises custodians on his or her team to correct any shortfalls.
The supervisor also works as an intermediary between the building or maintenance manager and the custodial crew. Any deficiencies in janitorial standards are typically communicated through the manager to the supervisor, who then works to correct these problems with the crew members. The supervisor may also receive any special cleaning instructions for specific dates from a building manager, which they relay to janitors at the start of a shift.
Typically, a custodial supervisor needs to have experience as a custodian, potentially in a leadership role. Custodial supervisors may work days, evenings or even overnights depending on the individual requirements of the particular job.
