    Housekeeping Anyone???????

    I got in for housekeeping, but I really don't want that role. I did not put it down as a role choice and we did not discuss it in the interview. I really wanted hospitality. And thats my major in school right now. Anybody else get housekeeping?

    Re: Housekeeping Anyone???????

    when i was a CP in Spring 2008, I was front desk/runner. during my time as a runner, i of course encountered a lot of cool peeps in housekeeping...not to mention that i worked at pop century, the biggest resort! but don't be too down about getting housekeeping, the program overall is a great experience, and if you think about it, there are plenty of cons. One, you're inside majority of the day, so no temperature or weather discomfort. two, you get to surprise guests with little cute knicknacks while they're gone, trust me, they love coming into the room and seeing special little touches that have been left for them.....just try to make the best of it. and even though it's not necessarily what you wanted, you're still working in the hospitality line of work, you'll gain extensive knowledge of the resort and how it works while you're there.

    Haha, when I stayed at Pop we noticed that when we walked by other rooms there were towel animals in the windows and we never got any... so we started tipping more and even writing thank you notes to try to up the service. And never got anything STILL! I'm starting to think that as a housekeeper it's better to NOT give the room something special so that they keep upping the tip to try to get something! hahaha
