Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire people who are more friendly, and less obnoxious and loud. There are a couple workers who are too close to each other. When they're together they exclude everyone else around them. They talk about others behind their backs and I learned this with personal experience. They laugh at everything and anything and they shout personal, inappropriate things so loudly a whole hallway could probably hear. It's just an impossible work environment when you are forced to work with people like this.

What I like about the company

The boss is usually great and trusts you to work on your own during the school year to clean your hallway and take out trash. It's a simple, easy job. 5 hour shifts monday through friday. If you have to come in late one day a week for some reason, the boss is great about it. I'm talking custodial work, so it isn't necessarily fun or pretty, but you just get one hallway to clean. You only have to take trash, sweep classrooms, and clean bathrooms. It's nice since I'm in college so I have class during the day and work from 3:30-8:30. Sometimes if I have a class that runs later than that, I'm allowed to come in later and still work 5 hours.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of being grouped with all the other women in the summer. There are only a few women workers and in the summer the boss groups us together. I normally get along with everyone, but some women are just too gossipy for my taste. So there is some drama that I don't approve of. I also would rather work in pairs than a big group. Two people working together and sharing tasks is way better than 4. Also I really dislike how they regulate our sick day pay. In the summer we work 8 hours a day, and during the school year it is 5. They recently informed us that sick days are based on our average. So if we call in during the summer on a day we were going to work 8 hours, we only get paid 5 if we use a sick day. It's ridiculous and unfair in my opinion.

What I like about the company

Coworkers have been good and my boss loves how hard I work and doesn't bother us because he trusts us to get our work done

What I dislike about the company

The teachers are selfish and ungrateful and demanding. They let the kids trash the classroom horribly and don't make them pick up after themselves. Some of the teachers are even slobs. They complain the first chance They get if there is even one little thing I miss when I clean.
