  • Transfer cleaned linen from the washer to the dryers (according to our load volumes) and setting the appropriate drying formula/program (temp/time) to achieve the best quality in the quickest manner.
  • Ensuring that no machine stays empty when linen could be transferred. This requires you to quickly and efficiently transfer dirty linen to the washing machine as soon as the previous load is finished, or transferring clean linen from the washer to the dryer as soon as the washer finishes its cycle; this is to ensure that the smooth and efficient flow of linen is constantly maintained and that the linen does not get backed up.

This includes the ability to take the initiative and do what needs to be done in the laundry department, as there is always lots to do.
  • Ensure inventory levels are maintained or replenished for all washers, spot treatment, and drying chemicals and/or products.
  • Ensure the housekeepers always have an abundance of linen available to them when they need it, including rags.
  • Fold all types of linen quickly and efficiently, as per your training. This includes having a good attention to detail, as you will be looking for stains/hairs/rips or tear/etc. to ensure our linen quality standards are met.
  • Sorting and storing all folded linen in a neat and organized manner, as per your training. This includes ensuring that the restaurant linen is folded in a timely manner (straight from a warm dryer), to ensure they have a pressed look (no wrinkles).
