Hire a Janitor

 

The daily operations of a company require numerous elements working together. Behind the scenes, one such occupation that can sometimes be taken for granted is janitorial work. But, in truth, a business could not run optimally without janitors. Sometimes, it is only in their absence that people notice their contributions to day-to-day operations. 

 

Janitors are valuable staff members who are in charge of cleaning and maintaining spaces. They work in schools, universities, business establishments, hospitals, and other organizations on a part-time or full-time arrangement. The work schedule varies, depending on the company. Although most work during the day, janitors may also work evenings or early mornings, on weekends, and even holidays. 

 

For hiring managers, a job description is a good tool to inform candidates about a job vacancy. As the first point of communication between the hiring organization and job seekers, the job description helps applicants weigh if they are the right fit for the position. Also called cleaning technicians, it is best to include this term in the job announcement to show up in search result pages and get more candidate leads. 

 

Responsibilities of a Janitor

The primary goal of janitors is to ensure that the business premises are clean, tidy, and well maintained for both employees and customers. On a typical day, they may be assigned to clean specific areas in the office or work on an entire floor. Cleaning entails mopping, sweeping, vacuuming, and picking up trash and debris off the floor. They also wipe, dust, and polish furniture as needed. Also, windows are wipes and washed safely. In cleaning specific areas like bathrooms and kitchens, Janitors scrub floors, disinfect sinks, and polish fixtures. Disposing trash and relining garbage bins are also part of the job. 

 

Janitors determine the appropriate cleaning agents, sprays, and chemicals to clean safely while preventing any property damage. In some companies, janitors also take charge of conducting minor repairs like plumbing. In case any major repair is warranted, they inform the supervisor right away. Additionally, janitors keep the building secure by keeping the doors locked. 

 

Janitors ensure that all cleaning supplies are replenished and prepared. They frequently engage with other staff members and employees. Depending on the season, janitors help in cleaning the property grounds, shoveling snow, or sweeping leaves. Lastly, janitors wear protective equipment as necessary and follow safety guidelines at work. 

 

 Skills and Qualifications of a Janitor

Janitors may or may not be required to have a high school diploma or GED. The ideal candidate for janitor is reliable, honest, and patient. The ability to follow verbal and written instructions with good attention to detail is beneficial. Janitors must work independently and collaboratively with other team members. As such, good interpersonal and communication skills are necessary. Janitors may work on multiple tasks in a day. Time management skills will help ensure that all tasks are completed within the designated time. Lastly, candidates must be physically fit to stand for extended periods and lift heavy equipment when required.
