You’ll have to work well without direct supervision, whether you’re working solo or with a team of other housekeepers. Housekeepers and maids clean up other people’s messes for their entire shift, so you’ve got to really love the satisfaction that a freshly made bed and a stack of bleached towels brings to your life
