A typical day at work would start with a debriefing from my superior. Then I would read the memos pertaining to today's activities while eating my dinner. Soon after, I would start a patrol in some of the buildings to detect any damaged equipment while the maintenance staff was still around. Then I would verify the temperatures of the fridges and freezer in the cafeteria. I would continue patrolling for 1-2 hours while unlocking/locking doors according to the memos. Then, I would take a pause in the office while still be available to answer the phone and anyone showing up at the office window and while writing my reports. Yet again, I could be dispatched anytime for an emergency (medical, fire, intrusion, extreme temperature) or someone who needs a door to be opened/locked. I would continue my patrols and make sure to include another verification of the fridges and freezer in the cafeteria. At this point, I would disarm the alarms for the cleaners to get in those rooms without triggering an alarm. Then, I would start locking all the exterior doors of the buildings and go back to the office to finish writing my reports.
It was an unpredictable job. Some days could be very quiet to the point where it was boring and some days could be crazy crazy busy.
Always something new to learn; diversified tasks
Lack of time/personnel; a big area to cover
