About the Housekeeping position:
5 days on, 2 days off. Working 5 hours a day or less depending on what needs to be done and how fast you get it done (correctly).
For morning and night checks, we will rotate staff, that's where one volunteer will check the house for dirty sinks & counters, empty the trashcans, and just check that everything is presentable at 8 am. Then at 9 pm another check of the house and watering plants. It normally should take under 30 mins.
10 am to 2 pm is cleaning the bathrooms, kitchens, making beds, sweeping, and moping. Then the rest of the day is yours :-)
For the Handyman position:
Normal repairs for a hostel/house might include painting, fixing a running toilet, leaky sink, sagging screen door, replacing a door handle. There will also be larger projects we'll want to build like replacing our rooftop deck with a larger one, new picnic table and lounge chairs for the rooftop terrace, a water mister for the lounge chairs, a cool outdoor bed for lounging, designing a bathroom/shower with new tiles and lots of plants to give it an outdoor nature feel. Building a 6 foot tall Jenga game, there are always fun projects going on to keep your day from becoming repetitive.
