Their work schedule starts at 7:00 AM to 12:00 Noon. The YouTuber is a former seaman who also worked as a cleaner in Pangasinan, so he has some experience with this line of work he is handling in Qatar.
Unlike his previous jobs, however, it was pointed out that there was no system in place when it comes to what work needs to be done at what particular time. What happens is that the supervisor decides what to clean for that day and the other members of the team comply.
The cleaner also mentioned that they are accommodated just within the lot area of the house. He also mentioned the name of the agency that helped him find this job: M and M Placement International Inc.
A Typical Workday
In one video in the vlog series, the cleaner shared his day’s task. During that day, the cleaners were tasked to clean three balconies of the house. They used regular cleaning materials like brushes, buckets of water and brooms, to clean the balconies. It was a particularly hot day when they cleaned, and the cleaner mentioned how they sweated easily due to the weather.
In a separate video, the cleaner mentioned in one of the comments that his monthly salary is equivalent to not less than Php 20,000. He refused to specify the actual salary for privacy purposes, but according to the Work Abroad website, the minimum salary of a cleaner in Qatar is USD 300, while the maximum is USD 1,200. That’s equivalent to around Php 15,000 to Php 60,900 pesos. If you are a cleaning manager, you are paid with a minimum salary of QR 2000, to QR 2,500. That is equivalent to Php 27,900 to Php 34,850.
Working as a cleaner is not the easiest job, and you need to have lots of dedication and passion for this work. In Qatar, cleaners are well-compensated. They can definitely earn money and save for themselves and their families.
