Was constant stretched beyond capabilities.
Housekeeping/Laundry (Ancien employé) – Labrador City, NL – 9 juin 2018
Originally I had a small portion of work. Wash the laundry (bed sheets, comforters, mattress protectors, towels), fold it, and put it away or set it aside to be used. Then, I was doing laundry on 3 different floors of a building, and sometimes running between camps to do the same in the other. Trying to switch it over from washer to dryer, fold all of it (keep in mind there were many rooms), organize the clean laundry in the storage closets, clean kitchens on each floor, sometimes mopping hallways caked with dirt/mud/concentrate. Sometimes I put off my 15 minute breaks because I felt I had to much work to do. Then I had to start going in earlier to do a walk through of the building and see what rooms were to be cleaned. This was pointless because people weren't all out of the rooms yet.
I did enjoy the friendliness of the coworkers, and they did have a Christmas party and a Chase the Ace every week. We had lunch at the cafeteria every day.
Free lunches, good schedule
Unmanageable workload, high stress
