Evening Janitorial

Maybe you have heard or read the story of Dr. Albert Schweitzer. Born in 1875 in France, he became world famous and even won a Nobel Peace Prize for his diligent work. Albert Schweitzer devoted himself to making life better for people who were not as fortunate as he was. Later in his life, he moved his family to Africa and built a small hospital there. More and more sick people started coming to his hospital. Some brought babies that had no parents to protect them. Some brought older people who had no home. Dr. Schweitzer never turned any of them away. Among the many words of wisdom spoken by Dr. Schweitzer, he famously said, “One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”

 

There are times in our lives when circumstances beyond our control cause us to stop and do some self reflecting. I know we have been doing a lot of that at Cloute Inc in the last several weeks. One of the major functions of our company is to provide Janitorial services in commercial and medical buildings of all kinds. We have been blown away by the faithful dedication of the team that has been assembled here, and are working around the clock to help keep buildings safe through cleaning and disinfecting. From our story above, Dr. Schweitzer said it well in his quote. In the middle of the chaos, we have found great happiness in being able to serve this community.  Maybe you’re searching for a new opportunity to do just that. Whether you’re laid off from your regular employment, looking for “something extra”, or are looking for a new cause to get behind, we are currently looking for more individuals that connect with our service-minded culture.

Day Time Cleaning

A psychologist at a well-known university advised a large insurance company to hire a special group of job applicants who tested high on optimism. Although they had failed the company’s standard aptitude test,  the company took the risk and hired the group anyway. Sales were tracked over time and the “high optimism” group, compared with salesmen who passed the aptitude test but scored high in pessimism, made 21 percent more sales in their first year and 57 percent more in their second. 

What does that teach us? Optimistic people, in general, are more likely to get creative about solutions, persevere in the face of challenges, see the positive in every situation and find a way to gain a benefit regardless of the situation. 

At Cloute Inc. we place a high value on optimism. We are adding an optimistic leader who can also serve as our carpet and hard surface cleaner to our already strong team of leaders. Are you part of the “high optimism” group and looking to join a team of growing individuals in a growing company?

Success in this position looks like:

  • Ambitious & professional, with an eye for detail
  • Passionate about serving people and a job well done
  • Courageous enough to honor your commitments
  • Eager to learn or continue learning the professional house cleaning business
  • Willing to work  (20-30 hours/week)

If you are intrigued, we want to talk with you.
