The Loyalist Country Inn & Conference Centre has 82 rooms, an indoor pool, fitness centre, business centre, 24-hour front desk, a restaurant/lounge, and offers room service. They accommodate meetings, conferences, weddings, and other events.
There are about 40 to 50 staff, depending on the time of the year. Some job titles include Housekeepers, Kitchen Staff, Servers, Front Desk, and Maintenance.
Wanchi Lee, Assistant General Manager, moved to PEI from Ontario and has been with the company for about six months. It took him a bit of time to find an apartment in Summerside, but he says the company was very good to accommodate him until he was able to secure a residence.
His career in the hotel industry started about 10 years ago in Dubai. And his father owned restaurants, so he grew up in that industry.
“The work and the nature of the Island brought me here. I love the open space and the landscape of PEI. I enjoy working with the staff – they are incredible, and the people on PEI have been friendly.”
Current opportunities are available for Servers, Housekeepers, and Cooks for full-time and part-time work seasonally and year-round.
