Cleaner over summer period - not bad temporary work
Summer Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Canterbury – 21 August 2015
Worked here over the summer period a while back. I don't speak for all sectors of the university, only the cleaning department.
The staff were very friendly and easy to work with. The other staff, mainly composed of other students, were great too.
Pay obviously wasn't amazing but what would you expect. Was a temporary summer job, so opportunities for advancement is not something you'd be looking at.
Hours weren't bad, something like 8-1 if I remember correctly, so have plenty of time in the afternoon to enjoy. Or, if you look at it in a different way, you don't get many hours so don't make a lot of money.
Overall, it did the job for temporary summer work. Worked with a few friends so that was fun. Wouldn't do it again though. A friend of mine did, so each to their own.
Short days, friendly management, friendly co-workers, not difficult
Can be a bit disgusting, work can be strenuous at times
