Second area of Experience
Continuing to new areas of Hospitality- and learning what is Housekeeping
Even if the weather in England was the only se saw topic many locals found themselves talking about or even complaining about. For me I invested in a thermal jacket from some swish clothing shop to keep the cold at bay in the always buzzing little historic town. The greenery and moisture of fresh air was always a welcoming sight when the sun was out for a little while.
Second up was my experience as a housekeeper, Yes you heard correctly… I worked as a Housekeeper to bring my area of hospitality Experience in a new area
(luckily or not so, you judge , I required no prior housekeeping experience to for fill this duty as required)
Let me explain what is housekeeping and what I did as a housekeeper.
I have to admit that any situation could bring surprises to your day as you will not necessary find every situation as straight forward as the previous. Once I found broken part of the hotel room all over and that luckily meant that housekeeping was needed after engineering could fix and replace the damages done.
One more point to make is the continuants of the stocking and organizing of trollies with amenities and always depleting linen stock. When you go all the way back through the maze like corridors of the hotel down to where no guest ever goes, down to find the laundry room.
You will almost always be greeted with a unhelpful smile of staff not having the basics of proper English in their vocabulary, or if they do you know you better still keep patient in waiting with fellow workers to get their assigned rooms completed as the scarcity of clean linen becomes obvious .
I probably have more experience in this area than I’d like to admit.
Every hotel I have been assigned to go work for had some form of stock or linen shortage. This made things unnecessarily problematic. However working in groups sometimes gave you an opportunity to learn and find out the most interesting things about cultures and ideals you never knew or considered.
