Job Description

Day Porter - Janitorial (Downtown Lexington) (Operations)
Lexington, KY, United States of America




This is a HUGE opportunity for a great DAY PORTER (aka day cleaner that cleans the common areas of large commercial office buildings during the day) that is willing to work their butt off!  This is also an opportunity to get in on the ground level with our company in the Lexington market, and the opportunity to service a large customer/account in downtown Lexington.  Lastly, this is also an opportunity to help First Class improve upon what we have already built over the last 5 1/2 years in Louisville and duplicate that same culture and service in the Lexington market.   If you are one of the hardest workers you know but don't seem to get the credit you deserve, or perhaps you are hustling every day at your current job but they are not providing you with the resources, the training, and the love you need, then this may be the right job for you.

The "DAY PORTER" position requires great communication skills, as you will be interacting with tenants and customers all day long.


First Class' CORE FOCUS is simple - To make a positive impact in the lives of our team members and to wow our clients every day! This is WHY we get up every morning at First Class!!


First Class Commercial Cleaning was founded by John Disselkamp, a UK Grad and native Louisvillian, back in January of 2016 with hardly a penny in the bank and nothing but a mop, a couple rags, and a bottle of windex he bought at Wal-Mart.  From those very humble beginnings a short 5 years ago to today where we are fortunate enough to serve 130 families and 47 mid to large commercial facilities, John attributes that growth to the simple things: Treating people well and Working Hard.  He also believes First Class' extreme focus on relationships and communication has played a pivotal role in our ability to service our customers.     


First Class is proud to be a Kentucky-Based Independently Owned and Operated Janitorial Company.  As one of the FASTEST GROWING companies in the state of Kentucky, First Class provides nightly janitorial services, day porter services, and commercial floor services to a portfolio of  47 “Class A” office buildings (and some medical) in Kentucky, ranging from as small as 20,000 sq ft up to 500,000 sq ft.  Most importantly, we are fortunate enough to SERVE over 130 team members and their families.
