Housekeeping Jobs

Housekeeping Job Overview

Housekeepers are sometimes overlooked, but the role they play in the hospitality industry makes them indispensable. They often work in hotels or resorts, but hospitals and private homeowners also employ them.

On an average day, a housekeeper may perform any of the following duties:

  • Change sheets and make beds.
  • Vacuum rugs and carpets.
  • Sweep and mop floors.
  • Dust and polish various surfaces.
  • Empty trash cans and properly dispose of trash in a dumpster.
  • Clean hallways and other common areas.
  • Replenish supplies, such as soap and towels, in rooms.
Depending on the size of an establishment and changing circumstances, management may ask housekeepers to carry out other tasks, such as helping guests with luggage, running to the grocery store, or picking up dry cleaning.

Housekeeping Job Education Requirements

Housekeeping consists mainly of physical labor and does not require special skills, so most employers do not require housekeepers to have a formal education. Training takes place primarily on the job.

While housekeepers do not need any official certifications, they do need some specific qualities. Successful housekeepers maintain a positive attitude and have interpersonal skills. In a hospital or hotel, they represent the facility for which they work, so smiling at guests and patients and greeting them is an important way for housekeepers to help the facility give a good impression. Attention to detail is also key; a hair left in a bathtub or a smudge on the mirror can lead to disgruntled guests.

Housekeeping Job Market

Those seeking a job in housekeeping have favorable prospects. As demands increase on the healthcare industry, hospitals will need more housekeepers to keep their facilities sanitary and in good order. Hotels, another major employer of housekeepers, are usually looking to build their housekeeping teams. Many people leave housekeeping positions every year, giving rise to even more opportunities for job seekers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment growth for housekeepers is average.

Housekeeping Job Salary Information

Full-time housekeepers make a median wage of around $20,000 a year, with an average hourly rate of $9.41. Wages can vary widely; housekeepers who work in high-end resorts may earn more per hour and receive more tips from guests. Housekeepers in hospitals tend to earn slightly more than the average wage for housekeepers in general.

A talented housekeeper can advance and become a Hotel Housekeeping Team Leader or a Hotel Housekeeping Supervisor. These positions generally offer higher pay and greater responsibility.
