What It’s Like To Work In The Houseperson Field A houseperson has a wide range of responsibilities that can run from doing laundry for the facility’s linen, or getting actively involved in housekeeping. The houseperson would also be responsible for assisting in any minor repairs to guest rooms or to common areas. A houseperson could also be responsible for janitorial duties in common areas and other parts of the facility.
A houseperson is not necessarily supposed to come into direct contact with guests. As with the engineering and maintenance staffs, the houseperson works behind the scenes to make certain that every guest has everything they need and that the facility remains clean and safe.
