Department: Housekeeping
A. Areas of Concern
The Executive Housekeeper
As with all organizational departments, housekeepers will perform better if they
are under some form of coherent leadership from an executive housekeeper. The
executive housekeeper has several responsibilities including managing the
housekeeping team while keeping them on task regarding their daily cleaning
duties, identifying new cleaning opportunities or changes that should be made in
the current protocol, planning the housekeeping budget, ordering supplies, and
addressing concerns that are raised by the housekeeping team. The executive
housekeeper typically reports to the general manager or rooms division manager
and in larger establishments, may have an assistant executive housekeeper.

Supervisors
In larger establishments especially, there are generally supervisors who manage
each section that needs to be cleaned. Floor supervisors make sure that guest room
attendants have what they need to clean guest rooms properly. They also check
guest rooms after they have been cleaned for quality assurance. The public area
manager performs the same quality assurance checks in the lobby, hallways and
public restrooms. The laundry manager ensures that laundry attendants are
washing, drying, folding, and pressing items properly and in a timely manner.
Some establishments have a uniform supervisor who ensures any uniforms, aprons,
and linens at the establishment are not ripped, torn or stained while instructing

10

linen room attendants where to stock them. There is also usually a control desk
supervisor who fields guest requests and makes sure that mini-fridges or bars
within each guest room are always stocked.

Guest Room Attendants


The largest responsibility that housekeepers have is to clean every guest room in
use daily. This must be done in an efficient and timely manner as rooms must be
either cleaned before guests return for the night or be made ready for the next set
of guests before they arrive. Employees tasked with this job should be able to clean
an average guest room, change the linens, and stock the bathroom with towels and
toiletries in under a half hour. Other employees provide support by picking up and
bagging dirty linens for the laundry and refilling housekeeping carts. All guest
room cleaners and support positions report directly to the executive housekeeper.

Laundry and Linen Room Attendants


Most lodging establishments have housekeeping employees dedicated to
laundering linens, towels, napkins, aprons, uniforms and any other items that must
be washed on a daily basis. Most employees in this department operate and tend to
the various washers and dryers as well as the pressing and folding machines. Other
employees serve as runners to either pick up dirty laundry or put clean laundry
away. In some cases a tailor is employed onsite to repair ripped clothing and linens
or repurpose them into aprons and rags. The laundry staff report either to the
laundry and uniform managers or the executive housekeeper.

11

Public Space Attendants


In addition to cleaning guest rooms, the housekeeping department is charged with
tidying all of the public areas of the establishment including the lobby, hallways,
bathrooms, exercise room, meeting rooms and pool area. In rare cases the
housekeeping staff also cleans ballrooms or dining room areas. Attendants charged
with cleaning public spaces report either to the public area supervisor or the
executive housekeeper.

Mini-bar Attendants
While guest room attendants sometimes take care of stocking the mini-bar, busier
lodging establishments with many rooms will often employ dedicated mini-bar
attendants. It is the job of these employees to make sure that all mini-bars or
fridges in each guest room are stocked with water and alcoholic drinks that guests
can consume for an extra fee. Often, these employees will also make sure each
guest room has an ice bucket, coffee maker and coffee, tea and drinking glasses.
Mini-bar attendants report either to the control desk supervisor or the executive
housekeeper.

B. Operations System and Procedures


12

You must knock 3 times before opening the door to make sure no one is inside
then if no one is inside first thing you do is open all the lights and move the curtains at
the side, second is gather the pieces of trash, third is clean the bathroom, fourth is dust
and vacuum the bedroom and lastly spray a scented water across the room.

C. Facilities, Equipment, Etc.

The housekeeping is an open area. It is designed to be a spacious work place. All


of the equipment is present and well sanitized.

D. Manpower Scheduling, Work Method and Styles of Communication

The employees will have to be in the office 30 mins. before the his/her shift. The
staff have 1-day rest day in a week. The staff communicates in natural way.

a. Strengths

All of their staff/housekeeping attendants are well trained so even if only few
people are in duty in every station, they can manage their time and can accommodate
their guests very well.
b. Improvement area/ weaknesses
13

They lack employees and interns. Seminars are not being observed most of the
time. Seminars should always be implemented to improve everyones skills and to avoid
any mistakes in the workplace.
c. Recommendation
In the Housekeeping department, they must hire more attendants so that service
will be more efficient especially during peak hours. And they should have a clearer
schedule so that there would be no disturbances.
E. Working Atmosphere
The Housekeeping is a much-sanitized workplace because it deals with food and
beverage products. All employees have clean haircut, no facial hair, no piercing and
tattoos for the boys and a clean orange polo, Name plate, black pants, black socks and
black shoes. They are very approachable, professional and easy to work with. The
employees and the trainees shared their knowledge to one another.

F. Sanitation Procedure/Practices

All of the employees are wearing proper uniform. Employees have clean haircut,
no facial hair, no piercing and tattoos for the boys and a clean orange polo, Name plate,
black pants, black socks and black shoes. At sink they make sure that all the glassware,
utensils and other equipment is being sanitized with hot water after washing it, and after
that they will wipe it with a clean dry towel.

14

And also the employees always observe proper sanitation by using proper
chemicals on cleaning the equipments. They use sanitizer before and after food contacts.

V. Conclusion
Therefore I conclude that Diamond Hotels Housekeeping can be a great guide
for On the Job Training. This is one of the opportunities of trainees like me to practice all
things that we have to learn from Lyceum of the Philippines University and a great
stepping-stone for my future career. I learned a lot and I also experienced real work in
the F&B industry. It is an important experience for every one of us because it is a
preparation for us in the future because one must have rich and right knowledge, skills,
attitudes, and experiences his or her profession.
