Housekeeping Jobs: 4 Perks That Pay Off for Hospitality Workers

Housekeeping Job Perks That Pay Off

Are the best housekeeping jobs the ones that pay the most?

It depends.

Pay is important, but it’s not the only think to consider when looking for hospitality work. Perks should be a priority too. In fact, overlooking them can be a costly mistake.

Here are 4 perks you should look for in your next housekeeping job.

Health Insurance

Life is full of surprises. Unfortunately, that can include unexpected medical expenses.

Health insurance helps cover the costs potentially saving you thousands of dollars. Not all employers and staffing agencies offer health insurance, so make sure you ask about it when considering your next job.

If you’re considering working for Heart of the House, you should know that we offer associates health, dental and vision insurance.


Sign-on, performance and referral bonuses are great opportunities to earn additional income. Before you leap at the job with the highest hourly wage, check if there are bonuses available and ask about their earning potential.

As an example, Heart of the House’s referral rewards program is unlimited. Meaning associates earn money every time they make a qualified referral (And if you’re applying for housekeeping jobs, we’re currently offering a sign-on bonus in many markets!).


Everyone needs time away from work. PTO (Paid Time Off) is a bank of hours you can use to take time off when you need to. Not all hospitality staffing companies and employers offer PTO, so ask about the time off policy when considering your next job. Heart of the House associates enjoy the freedom and flexibility of PTO.

Employee Recognition Program

Everyone wants to be recognized and rewarded for their hard work. Find out if your employer offers an employee recognition program.

It not only says a lot about the culture of the company and how much they care about their employees, but it might offer financial incentive as well. For instance, the Heart of the House Associate Spotlight Award shines light on our awesome associates and adds $50 to their pay!

So, when looking housekeeping and hospitality jobs, make sure you pay attention to the perks – not just the hourly pay.
