As a housekeeping room attendant, your typical work day and responsibilities will be as follows.

· Your day will begin with a team meeting, preparation of groups and golf cart load up.

· After receiving your daily list, you will head out in groups of 2 and/or 3 to begin cleaning the early checkouts (go’s).

· Cleaning will consist of dividing the workload of each chalet with your group members to achieve the highest standard of cleaning, based on your provided training, along with confirming no maintenance issues are present and that the chalet is fully inventoried/stocked upon completion.

· Cleaning task within these cabins will include, but are not limited to: full kitchens, full bathrooms, fireplaces, dusting & disinfecting, making beds, restocking supplies, sweeping & sanitizing balconies/patios, along with vacuuming/washing multiple different floor types in different sized chalets.

· After your paid 30-minute lunch break, you will finish the check-outs, if not already completed, and begin cleaning the stay overs, as per your provided training, to achieve the highest standard of cleanliness.

· Once your daily list is completed to excellent standards, you may be required to assist other groups or to complete additional tasks that are requested in the housekeeping department.

· Upon completion, as a large team, everyone will meet in the housekeeping/laundry room to unload, restock and organize themselves for the following day.

· Periodically throughout your work day, your supervisor(s) will check in with your group to check for issues you may have encountered, to restock necessities and/or to provide feedback on completed chalets

· Throughout your day, you will be interacting with our guests either through requests or in passing. As customer service is of importance to us, this will be done in a polite, friendly, professional, and efficient manner.

· While at work, you must always comply with all health and safety policies/procedures, as outlined during your provided training

· Sometimes, over and above your daily tasks, other spontaneous jobs may be requested of you, depending on the help required on property at that time.

· Your role could also include stripping dirty linen from rooms upon checkout and/or disinfecting rooms earlier in the day, followed by joining a group and doing housekeeping once stripping duties have been completed.

Throughout your workday, the laundry department as a team will be responsible for completing the following (but not limited to) tasks, as directed during training:

· Possibly disinfecting and/or stripping (linen, amenities, fireplace ashes, etc.) chalets upon guest checkout

· Sorting linen appropriately to be laundered; sheets, towels, etc.

· Loading washing machines (according to our load volumes) and setting the appropriate formulas/wash cycles/programs, specific to the load/linen at hand.

· Transfer cleaned linen from the washer to the dryers (according to our load volumes) and setting the appropriate drying formula/program (temp/time) to achieve the best quality in the quickest manner.

· Ensuring that no machine stays empty when linen could be transferred. This requires you to quickly and efficiently transfer dirty linen to the washing machine as soon as the previous load is finished, or transferring clean linen from the washer to the dryer as soon as the washer finishes its cycle; this is to ensure that the smooth and efficient flow of linen is constantly maintained and that the linen does not get backed up.

This includes the ability to take the initiative and do what needs to be done in the laundry department, as there is always lots to do.

· Ensure inventory levels are maintained or replenished for all washers, spot treatment, and drying chemicals and/or products.

· Ensure the housekeepers always have an abundance of linen available to them when they need it, including rags.

· Fold all types of linen quickly and efficiently, as per your training. This includes having a good attention to detail, as you will be looking for stains/hairs/rips or tear/etc. to ensure our linen quality standards are met.

· Sorting and storing all folded linen in a neat and organized manner, as per your training. This includes ensuring that the restaurant linen is folded in a timely manner (straight from a warm dryer), to ensure they have a pressed look (no wrinkles).
