A Day in the Life: Spending the Day at the Perot Museum with our DFW Operations Manager, Casey Krier

In January, you read what our DFW District Manager, Quinn Meredith, had to say about what it was like working with the new Perot Museum in Dallas, Texas. Pretty cool stuff, huh? And at REDLEE/SCS, INC., we love supporting every single member of our team.

This week, we invite you to meet Casey Krier, our Operations Manager who manages the day-to-day operations that occur within the Perot Museum. With a background in maintaining important buildings, Casey sure knows his stuff. We had the chance to speak with him about what it’s like cleaning possibly one of the coolest new buildings in Dallas, and check out what he had to say below!

1. Tell us about your role at REDLEE/SCS, INC.

“My role at REDLEE/SCS, INC. is Operations Manager. Typically what I do on a day-to-day basis is ensuring we our operating completely to what the customer needs and want. From our day staff to our event staff to our night staff, it’s seven days a week, non-stop management and going beyond client expectations.”

2. When did you begin working for REDLEE/SCS, INC.?

“I began working for REDLEE/SCS, INC. five months ago.”

3. You manage the day-to-day janitorial services provided for the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Can you tell us about that?

“What we do is make sure each floor is maintained properly with the day staff, night staff and the event staff. When the museum does have events, it’s our job is to coordinate with their event planners and make sure that we are able to maintain the amount of people coming through the door.”

4. What does a typical day and/or night consist of when it comes to maintaining the Perot Museum of Nature and Science? 

“The building opens at 10 a.m., but we start at 8 a.m., and we usually don’t finish until midnight every night. Sometimes it varies depending on when and what types of events are planned and what the day looked like. We get a lot of kids in here, and usually with a lot of kids, it gets pretty messy. At night, we’re finishing what we didn’t get in the day and in the morning, we start all over again!”

5. So far, what’s your favorite thing about working with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science?

“It’s a new building and it’s new in the area so getting to be a part of that is really exciting.”

6. Now for the fun part ‑ what’s your favorite exhibit in the Perot Museum of Nature and Science?

“My favorite part is definitely the space area, it’s what I like the most in the museum. That’s generally where I am, listening to Owen Wilson.”

7. Is the escalator on the outside of the building scary to ride up and down (or is it super fun to clean)?

“It’s terrifying…for both! And it’s non-stop, we clean it while it’s running.”

8. Have a favorite cleaning product?

“What we use here is called PERdium that sanitizes everything in the building. It’s a one-stop shop that disinfects and maintains the building for all who come through.”

9. What has been the most rewarding experience working for REDLEE/SCS, INC.?

“Running accounts like these and other big buildings is the best part about working for REDLEE/SCS, INC. I love the differences and the challenges, they’re fun to meet. We’ve faced the challenge at the Perot Museum of making sure we have enough hand sanitizer. We overcome the challenge, but we fly through hand sanitizer here!”

10. What are you looking forward to the most in 2013?

“Being successful every day, and success is always the best thing we can hope for, especially in here.”

So the next time you’re visiting the Perot Museum and you see Casey managing the REDLEE/SCS, INC. team (or, you know, gawking at the extremely cool space exhibit), be sure and say hi. You can also connect with Casey on LinkedIn.
