Custodian Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Custodian in Omaha:
`"$How to operate a floor buffet."`
Take your hands off the buffer trigger if it gets out of control, and don't try to fight it. Keep cord behind you at all times.

Custodian in Brookville:
`"$That there was no room for advancing or higher pay."`
Go back to school/collage and find a different job. Being a custodian is more than sweeping and mopping. Repairs need done, gym equipment needs moved around, doors need locked or unlocked for someone. You need people skills and child background checks. Knowledge of equipment, cleaning solutions, maintenance, alarms, where everything is stored, what sporting, musical or academic event is going on, and the requirements for that particular event. The different seasons need different maintenance, summer cleaning, snow removal, grass cutting, pool maintenance, football, baseball and soccer fields, all require different maintenance.

Custodian in Moses Lake:
`"$How many different add ons' would've been given through out."`
Always be prepared for extra work added on, unless already in your job description. With a raise or no raise.

Custodian in Fresno:
Do the best job you can do. Ask for help when or if needed to help you achieve your best efforts. Do not be afraid to ask for a raise if and when you feel you deserve one.
