Custodian Jobs

Custodian Job Overview

Depending on the location of the job and the company hiring new workers, Custodian jobs may go by the name of Janitorial jobs, Janitors or Building Cleaners. They are the ones who take care of cleaning up accidents and fixing minor problems that might lead to injuries or damage to the property. They change light bulbs, sweep floors, mop, wash the inside and outside of the windows, take out the trash and change bags in trash cans. Some companies make Custodians responsible for cleaning the exterior parts of the building as well. They might remove ice and snow from sidewalks, clean the parking lot, plant new flowers and mow the grass.

Custodian Job Education Requirements

Most employers look for applicants with a high school diploma, a GED or another equivalent. Though these positions do not require a college degree, workers must know how to read, write and do simple math in their head. The ability to work with different tools, strong upper and lower body strength, and the ability to spend long hours on their feet are other requirements of the job. Custodians must be able to work independently as well as in small groups.

Custodian Job Market

In 2012, the United States was home to approximately 2.3 million Custodians and Building Cleaners, but this is expected to increase by 280,000 new jobs from 2012 to 2022. Though this only indicates a growth rate of 12 percent, the market will grow at a faster rate than other maintenance jobs. Some Custodians may find themselves working for a specific type of building. Jobs of this type include Condo Maintenance jobs and Apartment Maintenance jobs.

Custodian Job Salary Information

Custodians working in the United States earn a median salary of $32,500 a year. The top 10 percent of Janitors make up to $50,000 or more each year, and the bottom 10 percent of Custodians earn less than $20,000 a year. Many Custodians earn an hourly salary rather than an annual salary. They can earn from $7 up to $15 for each hour they work.
