ROSA ZEVALLOS –
JANUARY 2021

“If there is one employee we can count on, it’s Rosa. She’s here daily with a ‘go-getter’ mentality and she is not afraid of work. She helps us escort on days when there is no escort available, even when that causes her to get behind, all for the betterment of Mister Kleen. She is pleasant and courteous and always says please or thank you. Employee of the Quarter awards were made for workers like Rosa.”

Brandon Caison, Project Manager

LEVI CHAVEZ -
APRIL 2021

Levi comes to work daily, he does whatever task is asked of him, even if it is not his job. He will help special services, the HQ and equipment repairs. Levi always has a positive, can-do attitude. He doesn’t complain, tell anyone no, and he is a true team player. He helps the managers if they need equipment repaired or delivered, he will fill in if we need him at an account, and he never complains about his schedule changing daily. Levi has worked at Mister Kleen for over 10 years and has always had a positive attitude and strong work ethic.”

You Make A Difference Award

Congratulations to Hector De La Luz, Cache Collier and Prempree Chaiyakan, our You Make a Difference award winners. This award recognizes teamwork, productivity and contributions to the company and our customers that are above and beyond. Thank you for all your hard work!
Hector

Hector has been a COVID Hero for the building. He has been there supporting MK and Davis Construction. The building manager is the happiest person with Hector. He said, ‘If I don’t come to work and Hector is here, I don’t worry, I know our tenants are in great hands.’ Hector is the best.”

Danilo Ponce, Area Manager

Prempree is a model employee. The most recent kudos email was from a police officer who used the restroom after Prempree just finished cleaning. He was so impressed with her detailed work that he sent an email and described her work as immaculate and said she cleaned the restrooms to the highest standard.”

Walter Gesford, Senior Project Manager

Cache

Cache went above and beyond with our customer. She actually stayed after her shift ended and clocked out to help (clean a secured area) for immediate occupancy. We received a very good email from the customer, one of the best I’ve ever seen an employee get.”

Craig Dufour, Area Manager
