Hi there, I've been looking for a new job and alot of jobs here are full time, you very rarely get part-time. I've been trying to look for a way to make a breakthrough on the internet but no luck so far. But before I resorted to the net I used to and still do look at the classifieds in the newspaper for new jobs and find that there are some housekeeping jobs that are for 2-3 days for the week (which will give me time to make a breakthrough on the net and sign up for classes I want to do) or just Monday-Friday. Which means I'll have ALL of my Saturday for me and not just half of it. The thing is, I'm not familiar with what housekeeping entails and was wondering if any of you guys and gals, lol, out there have any idea or example of what it might have in store and would it be a good idea to get into it. I haven't called any yet and there are always new ones showing up. I just wonder if they'll want to take someone who is 21 years of age to do such a job as well. Thanks for the input.

You should at least call and find out the answers to all your questions. It's ok to be interviewed and say you don't want the job if it doesn't sound like something you'd want to do. I do housecleaning, but I don't have any employees. What I do is pretty easy, if you don't mind cleaning. I dust, vacuum, mop, clean kitchens and bathrooms etc. I work by myself. If you're working for a company, they may have a couple people go to a place together and you'd only do part of the work. I don't think it matters how old you are as long as you are going to do a good job.

Thank you for the informative post. I am looking into housekeeping to work by myself and I wasn't sure how they would interview as well. If over the phone or ask me to come by for one so they could evaluate me in person. Which will pose a problem because I am currently working 6 days a week! I do hope it is a telephone interview. Would be easier for me.
