Opportunity Snapshot

We are seeking experienced custodial workers to assist us with our work at the USAFA.  You will perform specific assigned janitorial duties while working to ensure the contract standards are met or exceeded.  We prefer you are a team player and a true professional who is willing to "roll up your sleeves!”

This position is part of the nation’s AbilityOne Program.  AbilityOne is one of the largest sources of employment for people who are blind or have significant disabilities.  Through nonprofit agencies (such as Discover Goodwill), the program provides products and services such as janitorial and commercial laundry.  The program also requires that 75% of the services provided are to be completed by individuals who meet the AbilityOne requirements (blind or have significant disabilities).  If you feel you meet the requirements to work on an AbilityOne contract and are interested in providing our services, please let us know by applying today.

What Else You'll Bring to the Table

In addition to the qualifications detailed above, we would ask:

  • That you are a high-energy, positive thinker.
  • That you have an interest and empathy for people with disadvantages and disabilities.
  • That you have previous custodial experience (very helpful!)
  • Our Federal government contracts require that 75% of our workforce have a documented disability.

What's in it for You

Great work environment -- we understand the importance of investing in the right people, infrastructure, culture, technology, and solutions. As we grow, you'll need to be comfortable in a fast paced and dynamic atmosphere. Nonetheless, we take the time to ensure we do things right.

Creativity in a new approach -- if you're ready to leave behind the cookie cutter mentality and showcase your innovation with a blank slate, join the club: we're bringing a fresh approach to our Contracts and we'll expect you to step up to the challenge.

Work/life balance -- we are committed to helping you balance work with the other commitments in your life, at the same time; we'll look to you to remain flexible when the schedule requires it.

More About Your Role

To be sure we're providing a complete picture; here are some additional details about your role.
Your specific activities will include:

  • Working on-site at the beautiful Air Force Academy
  • Fully benefited position!  (Vacation, Holiday, Health Insurance, etc.)
  • Provide professional custodial services such as sweeping, mopping and buffing floors
  • Cleaning mirrors, windows and glass doors
  • Cleaning stairwells and walls
  • Emptying  trash
  • Vacuuming carpets
  • Policing (picking up) required areas.
  • Help provide a safe working environment for you, customers and fellow employees.

Keys to Success

To excel in this role, you must conduct yourself in a professional manner conducive to a product work environment, demonstrate good judgment, show yourself to be responsible and show initiative. You also will need to take a hands-on approach and contribute beyond your job description, as everyone at Goodwill does. In addition, in order to be an outstanding Contract custodian, you will:

  • Communicate effectively
  • Embrace the Goodwill vision and mission
  • Ability to lift, bend, stoop, walk and stand for extended periods of time
  • Able to lift heavy items up to 50 lbs, if required
  • This position requires a criminal background check that shows no felonies in the past ten years and no midemeanors in the past five years

If this sounds like the right mix of challenge and opportunity for you, and you meet the minimum qualifications, we want to hear from you!
