Meredith Lodging, Oregon’s premier vacation rental management company, announced this week that they are raising the hourly wage for seasonal Housekeeping employees to $19.19/ hour.
The company has traditionally paid the highest seasonal Housekeeping employee wages in their industry in Oregon and continues to be committed to providing living-wage jobs in tourist communities in Central Oregon and along the Oregon Coast.
“Now more than ever, we are committed to providing living-wage jobs. Every Oregonian has been hit hard by the events of this year – and that only makes us even more focused on compensating our hard-working and dedicated employees as well as we can,” commented Meredith Lodging COO Aaron Linfoot. “We are proud of the fact that we continue to lead by example and drive wage increases for seasonal Housekeeping employees in the vacation rental industry in Oregon. By doing so, we challenge our competitors to raise the bar on compensation, too, thereby having a net positive effect on compensation industry-wide in Oregon.”
Meredith Lodging is currently hiring Housekeepers. The company has always been committed to taking the best possible care of their Owner’s homes and making sure homes are inspected and sparkling clean for each new guest. Making sure to meet or exceed all current CDC (Centers for Disease Control) recommended cleaning protocols means their already very thorough processes take longer, which leads to an ongoing need to add Housekeepers and other staff to their team.
“We assign the same dedicated teams to our homes, meaning the same Housekeeping teams care for the same homes over time. Our teams get to know these homes and care for them like they were their own. We are looking to add to those teams because we are also seeing record reservation volumes - many travelers see a private vacation home as an ideal option in these times. They can enjoy the calming effects of spending time outdoors in Central Oregon or on the Oregon Coast, and have the peace of mind of staying in a private, professionally cleaned home that offers contact-free check-in and check-out
procedures. That has always been our sweet spot,” said Aaron.
