Job Description for Housekeeper

The primary duties of a housekeeper are to clean and maintain their designated work area. This work area will vary from employer to employer; housekeepers commonly work in hotels, private homes, and assisted living facilities. At a large hotel, a housekeeper may be expected to clean several floors' worth of rooms; at a private residence, a housekeeper may be expected to clean a relatively small area. Regardless of location, housekeepers can be expected to clean bathrooms, dust furniture, replenish supplies of soap and paper products, clean doors and windows, replace light bulbs, change and launder bed sheets and towels, and other activities that contribute to ensuring their assigned areas are clean and welcoming. Much of a housekeeper's daily work is autonomous; housekeepers are given their assigned area and are expected to complete their work in a set amount of time. Housekeepers should also expect to have their work evaluated on a regular basis and will most likely be held to a cleanliness standard set by their employer.

Housekeeper Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Housekeeper?

Housekeeper in Moncton:
"Hospitality for Life!"
Pros: Being able to provide good customer service to our customers, meet the requirements of my job and go above and beyond when possible. Meeting people from all over the world. The independence in the work-place; no boss breathing over your shoulder. Team environment none the less. Never work later than 5pm.
Cons: Management. Poor organizational skills by employers and other staff. Orders not properly done, customer's reviews on trip adviser not replied to, comment cards left by guests are ignored/they don't apologize for anything the guests complain about. Honestly, GM doesn't seem to care about the place other than in and out for the money he makes.
