I got hired as a janitor in a casino. Part time: 2 h in the morning, 2 in the evening.

First thing I'm happy about is that it doesn't require social interaction at all. U just do your thing and that's it.

Second good thing is that is part time, and u would ask why, if there's no social interaction, why not full time. Cause for me at least, i'm having trouble in the depression management area. I always have to keep my mind busy and don't let rumination escalate or it's game over. Keeping mind busy and distracted is done with things that bring pleasure, and work doesn't. Oh, a 3rd thing would be the endorphins released when working cause u it's preety challenging, but good cardio btw.


As for down sides, what can I say, I do like 3h on the transport and i work 7 days a week, it pays 120 euros.

Oh and let's not forget the staff ''models'' that u would find in a casino welcoming guests, that can be a challenge to be around too sometimes. Till now they just ignored me, witch is good in some way, but on another level it's kinda not. But who wanna chat to the ''garbage'' boy anyway (and to think in college i had a scholarship for best grades).


In the mean time I'm looking for something else. Hope I find something better.

7 days a week is tough. Casino environment sounds exciting but I imagine what an awful mess they make, especially in rest rooms.
I liked the minimal social interaction of cleaning, but you can get some really disgusting supervisers who will find fault with the smallest thing and co workers who try to dump their work on you. Best case scenario is nice boss and co workers who are friendly but respect your space. Good luck.

Well, supervisors want mirrors to be perfect, but it isn't a problem. I dunno what u mean about the staff giving u additional responsibilities, i know exactly what I have to do there and if i have something new to do i'll consult myself with my boss.

The mess in the rest rooms is awful, especially where they eat, but I still have to clean whether its dirty or clean anyway, so it's kinda the same job. They got cameras everywhere.



humourless, did u worked at a similar job ?

Yeah I did a lot of cleaning.
Some cleaning jobs we had to cover other people if they were sick or too slow. And one job , my area was easier than another guy's. He complained to the boss so I had to help him with his as well.

But cleaning can be a great job too. I once had an office cleaning job which was shceduled 6.00pm to 10.00pm but I finished in 2 hours and still got paid for 4. That was bril;liant!

Toilets are a pain in the butt! Especially public ones. My office ones hardly needed touching!

humourless, now talking about the ''image'' of u working as a janitor, didn't it lower your self esteem or things like that ?

For me at least I think ppl see me as same as unemployed. I mean what am I projecting outside ? It is a dirty job and I think ppl judge me from that aspect. When it comes to introducing myself to someone and i say ''i clean toilets and stuff'', it isn't exactly fun, sometimes I think I was better to present myself as unemployed...

Did u had problems like that, did ppl avoided u when they found out what your job was ? Did they suddenly lose interest in you ?

It shouldn't be allowed - it's not legal here to have an employee working 7 days a week
I got 2 days a month off, I choose them so the thing becomes...semi legal, but still illegal I think. I'll check more on that aspect.
