Wisconsin Healthcare Careers

Environmental services technician

Environmental services technicians are responsible for cleaning, disinfecting and other facility maintenance activities in hospitals or healthcare spaces.

The median pay is $32,840 per year in Wisconsin, and it is expected that the need for this position will increase by 1% (little or no change) in the next 10 years.

Most work full time, but part-time work is common. Because office buildings are often cleaned while they are empty, many cleaners work evening hours. When there is a need for 24-hour maintenance, such as in hospitals, cleaners work in shifts that may include nights, weekends or holidays.

No formal education is required to become an environmental services technician.

You may be a good fit for this opportunity if you excel in interpersonal skills, mechanical skills, physical stamina, physical strength and time-management skills.

Note: This information is for a general janitor or building cleaner, not necessarily in a hospital setting.
