    I probably have I got my last two jobs applying through web sites like Monster and got them. In the sites there is no real way to use off color paper to make your resume standout. I keep my simple and two the point and roughly two pages and I tend to get job hits.

    I am still getting job hits almost two years later I have it hidden and have not updated it in that time

    I didn't realize janitors made that much. Not that it's much, but it's better than minimum wage.

    You have to feel for those people, though, those are tough odds.

    Saw that article the other day and couldn't believe it! This economy is terrible, but that is pretty good pay for sweeping and mopping floors. I'm glad to have a job, but I'm still looking for a better one, but it's been really hard.

    Hey man, you can make a good life if you are a janitor at a private school and stuff like that. For people that want an fair to easy job, and good benefits and dont want the hassle of fighting life.

    My mom is a janitor here for the public school system. She works in a school for pregnant students and students who are already mothers. She does get paid good money but the teachers and students can be really nasty (mainly in the bathroom). She has all kinds of stories about messes she had to clean up.

    They should get paid a little more for all the crap they deal with...literally.

    I've worked retail, and I've heard women's bathrooms are nasty

    it's funny, because janitors tell me that men's bathrooms are pristine compared to women's bathrooms

    the stories I could tell you of what female employees have seen in the bathroom is ridiculous

    You're right.

    Yep, I have been told the same thing.

    I ain't knockin' it.
    Any honest work is good work, as far as I'm concerned.
