Custodian

June - August 2019 • Cherry Hill, NJ

What I liked

Weekly paychecks. Learn lots of handy man skills. Hazardous materials training and warnings aligned with my major. Heavy lifting replaced gym workouts.

What I wish was different

Teacher hierarchy. I didn't like how teachers would come in and boss the custodians around when we had a bunch of other tasks to accomplish. Work almost never got done because we would be pulled from one job to do something else.

Advice

Be polite and respectful at all times. Work hard, but don't work too much. The full-timers have a union job and many of my co-workers didn't like when I did too much or worked too fast.
