Pioneer Janitorial Services


The Pioneer Janitorial Groups in Chico and Oroville (PJS) are Supported Employment groups which perform typical janitorial and custodial tasks such as sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, dusting, and cleaning, including cleaning restrooms. Pioneer Janitorial Services has five crews: The Chico Custodial crew works during the afternoon and evenings for various contract sites in Chico. The Chico Pioneer Janitorial Crew works late evenings and nights for specific contract sites in Chico. The Oroville Pioneer Janitorial Crew works afternoons and evenings at various contract sites around Oroville. The DWR Admin crew works at the Department of Water Resources complex in Oroville during their normal business hours and Trainees may also learn to strip, wax and buff floors using power equipment. The DWR Remote crew works from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. three days per week (MWF). These workers perform typical janitorial tasks at remote locations throughout Butte County such as boat ramp areas and campsites. Janitorial crew members must have the ability to stand and walk around for a full 7 hour shift (with breaks); work outdoors in all types of weather wearing appropriate clothing; lift, bend, twist, carry, and manipulate items; and the ability to follow specific instructions and sequences of tasks. Workers receive pay based on individual productivity regulated by the Dept. of Labor.

Pioneer Janitorial Services has made advances in adopting cleaning technologies that are not only eco-conscious, but systematically eliminate exposure to harsh chemicals and reduce worker fatigue and injury. An added benefit has seen water usage being cut by 50%. This revolutionary cleaning method sanitizes without harm to staff or customers, and with no lingering harsh odors. A preschool or daycare may be thoroughly disinfected without the students having to leave the premises. Pioneer is now expanding its services by offering deep carpet dirt extraction and event cleanup.
