1 of 26 Housekeeper Interview Questions and Answers Written by Professional Interviewers

How to Answer

Housekeepers need to multi-task to ensure they have every space cleaned prior to guests arriving for a stay, and the interviewer wants to hear that you can meet this expectation. Think about a way that you are really good at multi-tasking. Are you able to cook dinner, watch the kids, and plan your weekend activities at the same time? Are you able to do laundry, chat with a friend, and pick out a new outfit online all at the same time? These personal examples are great for answering this question! When asked, mention that you can multi-task well, and share your example!

I believe I am. For example, in the past I have worked as a Barista. This was pretty much my first job and at first it seemed like a lot of was going and I was quite amazed at how my colleagues were able to pull of their tasks and still have time to chat in-between. However, as I was slowly eased into the task, I built up this muscle memory to carry out various tasks such as keeping up a clean environment, carrying out stockroom duties, making sure everything is topped-up, and working at the till and handling transactions and so on. This element of multi-tasking is also important for housekeeping. For example, with cleaning up a guest room, after a while one builds up this schema of what to do. It nearly becomes like muscle memory after a while. You go in, you take care of the linen. Then you attend to all the rubbish. Then I make my way into the toilet and work from the bathtub to the sink. Then I go and make the bed. This is followed up by surfaces. I then take care of the hoovering. The miscellaneous aspects are taken care of. Finally, an overall check is make to make sure everything has been conducted to a high standard. While doing this, I also need to keep track of what I've done so far. If I'm stocked up and what also I need to take care of.
