What does the general population think about being a Housekeeper in a hotel?

I just checked out of my Hotel today, and I saw a Housekeeper cleaning one of the elevators. She was real pleasant, and nice to me. Do people look down on Housekeepers, or do they have respect for them? Personally, I couldn't care less what your profession is, as long as you are a decent and honest person. And please, no smart or rude answers.

I used to be the Front Desk Manager in a hotel. I occassionally had to do housekeeping duty late at night when we needed a room turned over quickly. It is a very hard job. I would never want to do it full-time. Housekeepers are paid very little, are on their feet all day, and are expected to turn over (completely clean... More

In my opinion, Housekeepers are the greatest people around!! I mean, who could disagree? First of all, if there were no Housekeepers to clean the Hotel, then we wouldn't have clean rooms, and nice accommodations. Second, all of the Housekeepers that I have encountered have been really nice, outgoing, and sweet. They... More

to have decent living you can do any work. nothing wrong to work as a house keeper if you need to run your life and you need money.

anyone who is willing to do a job that I couldn't and do it with a smile everyday gets my respect. it shows that they're doing what they need to do to get by, pay the bills, put food on the table. a**holes with access to daddy's credit card and mummy's good graces deserve a swift kick to the head, reapeatedly.

I agree with you 100%. As long as the person is honest and does a good job, I could care less what your profession is. I have a regular Hampton Inn I stay at for business, and the cleaning staff has been great. It's kind of funny, as they weren't taking the tip money I left them the first few times I stayed.

Genereally not many people place value for them! To me, everybody worth a job; each job (not illegal one) has its value. It's nice and very kind of you to put your eyes on them while some don't even care! The world is not fair. Oops! It's like that so far.
