Hotel Executive Housekeepers
The primary duty of executive housekeepers is to ensure the cleanliness of the hotel. They supervise, coordinate, and direct the activities of the hotel housekeeping department. They determine the cleaning needs of different areas in the hotel—lobby, sleeping rooms, restaurants, pools—and schedule cleaning crews accordingly. Areas are inspected regularly to make certain safety standards and departmental policies are being met. They hire and train the cleaning staff, as well as recommend promotions, transfers, and, if necessary, dismissals. Executive housekeepers are also responsible for keeping inventory of cleaning supplies and equipment, as well as hotel linens, towels, and soaps. They deal directly with vendors to learn about the latest in cleaning solutions, equipment, and techniques.
