If you have no previous cleaning experience, you may need to work for smaller cleaning companies and not be specific about the locations you clean in order to get experience. Have a valid driver's license and a reliable mode of transportation. Banks are highly coveted contracts, and you will likely need to pass a background check before you can get to work in one. If you have any felonies, recent drunk driving arrests or anything that raises red flags, banking executives will not want you working in their facilities.
Some cleaning companies belong to a union, and they require you to join the union before you start working at the bank. This depends on the specific company and the state laws where you live. Find out during your interview if union membership is required to work as a janitor in the bank you are interested in, so you know both your entry requirements and the requirements to keep your position once you have it.Learn more about Job Search
