    Pros

    There are no pros to this job. Management lies at job interview about the amount of rooms you will need to clean. Some days we have been given 25 rooms each to clean with no help from supervisors, told we have to complete excesses work list before we left to collect kids from school or it was a disciplinary . Other times you get about 5 or 6, which is 2hours work as you have to clean a departed room in 20 min and a stay over 9 mins.

    Cons

    Ignored by management
    Lazy supervisors
    Expected to clean rooms in 20 mins to maximise profit margins so that the hotel manager or the assistant manager can get a nice bonus. While the housekeeper who is put under enormous pressure to clean 3 departed rooms in 1hour gets £7.50 and no guarantee of more then 4 hours work a week.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the people who are cleaning the rooms better and they might take pride in their jobs which would result in more return customer and lots more good reviews. It not rocket science
