Cleaning jobs

    I'm currently considering taking a job doing cleaning in a large facility. Anyone have any ideas what this type of work is like.

    I'm unemployed currently and I've worked in retail before and I'm looking to try something a little bit different. Is this type of work very tough/physically demanding and is it absolutely disgusting I'd imagine the worst part is cleaning p1ss and sh1t off the toilets I'd probably wear double gloves and a mask doing this lol.

    The part that appeals to me is it seems to be the kind of job where you can kind of work on your own without too much supervision and nuisance. Just keep your head down and do the work required of you which I like. I've seen cleaners in places just chilling with their earphones in whilst other staff have to put up with annoying managers and customers. It wouldn't be something I'd do long term just to get me some extra cash and a reason to get out of bed in the morning.

    Really different between different factories. Some are chilled, some really demanding.

    Give it a go.

    Better than doing nothing, and good cleaners are always in demand.
